Flying Monkeys The Chocolate Manifesto Triple Chocolate Milk Stout (Canada)

“…A luscious treat for beer geeks ready for a euphoric detour from the mundane.” Raw cacao nibs, cacao powder, and a chocolate malt layer blend to create this unique milk stout. Aromas of chocolate, espresso, and tobacco. Unbelievably smooth on the palate with notes of chocolate and café au lait.

A. A. Badenhorst’s “The Curator” White Blend 2015 (South Africa)

A blend of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, and Viognier that work together to create a wine of great drinkability. The Chenin Blanc provides backbone and structure, while the Chardonnay adds texture along with notes of dried peaches and apricots, and ripe citrus. Lastly, the Viognier brings a touch of spice and a presence to the finish.

Fontaniels Cinsault Rosé 2015 (France)

An elegant, light salmon color with a nose of red currant and floral notes. The palate is wonderfully complex with notes of ripe strawberry, red currant, and white flowers. A robust mouthfeel with a pleasant finish, and a great match for summer salads or light fish dishes.

 

Prodigo Nero D’Avola 2015 (Italy)

A rich, full bodied wine with a nose of freshly churned earth and spice. The palate is gripping with earthy notes enhanced by notes of spice, with a touch of mint. A great companion to roasted game, smoked meats, or Italian cheeses.

 

Portas Da Herdade Reserva Tinto 2012 (Portugal)

A blend of Aragonez, Syrah, and Alicante Bouschet, this wine was awarded 90 Points and Editor’s Choice by “Wine Enthusiast.” Aromas of blackberry and chocolate; a full body, but soft and refreshing on the palate. Notes of strong vanilla and cocoa on the finish. A wine meant for pairing with good food!

 

Lolea No. 1 Red Sangria Frizzante (Spain)

Fresh, fruity, and bubbling with personality, you’ll definitely want Lolea at your next gathering. Notes of mixed berries, citrus fruits, and spices with a touch of frizzante bubbles. Serve chilled with a slice of lime.
