Liquor World's beautiful Valentine wine recommendations come to you from our wine specialist Willie Dodd...

Lolea Frizzante Red
Spain

Lolea sets itself apart from all other sangrias that we have tasted so far. It smells like a fresh, young wine! And of cherry, orange peel, lemon drops, cinnamon and sour strawberry. Its intense, pleasant aromas are married with crisps nuances of grapes and sweet fruit. But the best has yet to come. Full-bodied and ample on the palate, Lolea confirms all the olfactory suspicions, following them with the experience of a wide array of ripe red berries and blue flowers, where you appreciate the noblest part of the wine and tannins. It has a very silky carbonic composition and slightly bitter finish that invites you to enjoy it.




Fleur De Mer Rosé
France

A Classic Provençal Rosé ~ A brilliant coral pink color, Fleur de Mer evokes aromas and flavors of fresh watermelon, cherry, subtle citrus, lavender and Mediterranean herbs. It is medium-bodied, fresh and elegant with a soft texture and mineral finish. Balanced and refreshing acidity.

 

Marichal Pinot Noir Blanc de Noir Chardonnay Rosé
Uruguay

Pale partiridge-eye pinky orange. Delicately spicy red fruit. Part barrel fermented. On the palate, rich and generous but fresh too. Creamy texture with just a hint of phenolic texture. Slight plum flavour, dry and complex and powerful without being heavy or harsh. Long lightly spiced finish. Persistent but delicate red-fruit flavor. Dry, dense and finishes fresh. jancisrobinson.com - 17 Pts/ 20 Pts

Grape Variety: 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay

This wine is light pink in color, with soft hints of salmon and copper. The classic richness of Pinot Noir is balanced with the delicate fruit and refreshing acidity of Chardonnay. Aging the wine in oak barrels on its lees lends a mild nutty and toasty notes to the citrus, strawberry and floral flavours. It is elegant and well balanced with creamy texture and soft, lingering finish.



Whispering Angel Rosé
France

Cotes de Provence Rosé ~ Made from Grenache, Cinsault, Rolle (Vermentino), Syrah and Tibouren, growing in vineyards surrounding the winery in La Motte en Provence, this is another sensual, silky-smooth, enthralling release. Whispering Angel is casting a spell with unerring accuracy and it will continue to shine in the glass and impress all-comers throughout 2018. - Matthew Jukes

 



McNab Grenache Rosé
Mendocino County, California

Beautiful McNab Ridge Grenache Rosé has an alluring nose of rich red berry fruit, hints of strawberry and warm spice, with a touch of citrus on the finish.





Pierre Morlet Rosé Grand Reserve
France


Obtained by the “Saignée” technique, the “Rosé Grande Réserve” is exclusively comprised of Pinot Noir. Its intense yet delicate bouquet is dominantly fruity (raspberry, wild strawberries, blackberries) intermixed with notes of limestone and hazelnut. Full-bodied and elegant, “Rosé Grande Réserve” displays flavors of fresh raspberries and pomegranate and a long finish with mineral notes and a hint of Kirsch.

Released after a minimum of three years of 'sur lattes' ageing in the deep caves.
Blanc De Bleu
California

Bronco Wine Company is proud to present Blanc de Bleu, the world’s first blue California sparkling wine with elegant notes of blueberry.

Blanc de Bleu delivers pleasant yet elegant flavors with a subtle touch of blueberry, creating a unique California sparkling wine with a dry, crisp finish.

Santa Margherita Brute Rosé
Italy

This pale pink wine brings a full bouquet of pleasing floral aromas with hints of red berry, artfully crafted with a blend of white wine made from Chardonnay and Glera grapes and a red varietal, Malbec. Its flavor is delicate, but vibrant and well rounded, remaining on the palate and making this a deliciously easy-drinking wine.

Alexander Valley Homestead Red
Sonoma County, California

Alexander Valley Homestead Red is a blend of six of their favorite grapes. Each varietal adds a different flavor profile to this well balanced wine. Winemaker Kevin Hall selected Merlot with rich concentration to anchor the blend, then added Zinfandel for spicy notes, Grenache for the berry flavors, Cabernet Sauvignon for its elegant structure, Mouvedre for additional texture and then rounded out the blend with Syrah with bright berry flavors and floral aromatics.

This dark purple wine has complex, earthy aromas of plum, cassis, black cherry, stone fruits, spice and violets. In the glass there are flavors of spice, berry, plum, cherry, oak and vanilla. This is a nicely balanced wine with a juicy finish.

Sierra Nevada Hazy Little Thing

A hop-heavy, unfiltered, hazy little thing called IPA

Brewers get the privilege to sample their beers straight from the tanks in all their raw glory.

Bell’s Hopslam Ale is Back for its
Once a Year Release
Double IPA

Starting with six different hop varietals added to the brew kettle & culminating with a massive dry-hop addition of Simcoe hops, Bell's Hopslam Ale possesses the most complex hopping schedule in the Bell's repertoire.

Selected specifically because of their aromatic qualities, these Pacific Northwest varieties contribute a pungent blend of grapefruit, stone fruit and floral notes. A generous malt bill and a solid dollop of honeyprovide just enough body to keep the balance in check, resulting in a remarkably drinkable rendition of the Double India Pale Ale style.

Hopslam is best enjoyed as fresh as possible.

Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition
Irish Whiskey, Irish Pale Ale-seasoned Barrels

Since Jameson swapped stout beer barrels with their friends at Franciscan Well Brewery in 2013 to create the Jameson Caskmates Stout Edition, they couldn’t wait to try a new beer mate with their casks.

Their whiskey makers down in Midleton Distillery have stuck their toes in the water (don’t worry that’s just figurative) once again to create Jameson Caskmates IPA Edition - blended Irish whiskey finished in craft Irish Pale Ale-seasoned barrels.

Nose: Floral, herbal hops, grapefruit citrus notes with subtle orchard fruits, complemented by wood shavings and a little nuttiness.

Taste: Hops and light citrus with sweet herbal notes and delicate spicy tones.

Finish: The lingering fresh fruit and hops give way to grains of barley and a signature smooth finish.



Yellow Spot Irish Whiskey

This bonded, single pot still Irish whiskey is aged for twelve years.

Tasting Notes: Aroma of red bell peppers, nutmeg, green tea and sweet peaches from the Malaga casks. Honey sweetness accented by cloves, baked apples, milk chocolate, coffee and creme brulee on the palate. Finish is dry and complex, with notes of toasted oak, red grapes and barley.


Glenfiddich Project XX

The Project XX experiment was so shrouded in secrecy that the whisky experts taking part didn’t even know about it until half way through the process. Given free reign of their Conval Warehouse, each expert chose a malt which most intrigued them, including whiskies from port pipes, American oak, and bourbon barrels

20 of the whisky industry’s most exceptional minds came together to create this truly unique, pioneering single malt expression.

With its deep golden hue, Project XX embodies the warm, fruity character of a classic Glenfiddich whisky with hints of apple blossom, summer fruits and ripe pear. But its multiple personalities are revealed with hints of sweet candyfloss, cinnamon spice, almonds and rich port tannins with the odd whisper of liquorice. Deep and mellow, the finish is long lasting with a lingering sweet oakiness.

Tasting notes: Deep and mellow, the candyfloss sweetness is complemented by unusual notes of toasted almonds and cinnamon and a hint of crisp tannin.

Finish: Long lasting with a savored sweet oakiness.

Bulleit Barrel Strength Kentucky Bourbon

Bulleit Bourbon Barrel Strength is made from the same high-rye mash bill as the original expression. The barrels selected were combined into a single batch for bottling at Stitzel-Weller in Louisville, Kentucky. As the name implies, this version is uncut and unfiltered straight from the barrel. Each batch will vary in ABV, ranging between 118 and 125 proof.
