bottle of Elijah Craig small batch boubon

Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon

This rich, small batch bourbon is an ideal choice for the winter months. With warm notes of caramel and spice, supported by an oaky backbone and enlivened with hints of vanilla and mint, this bourbon will warm you from the inside out. Its classic flavors evoke all the nostalgia of the holiday season, and its beautiful copper color makes for a truly stunning drink. But it also plays well with any of the classic bourbon cocktails, like an old fashioned or Manhattan, for your winter festivities.




bottle of Warre's warrior port

Warre’s Warrior Port

Featuring deep red coloring with a rich aroma of plums and cherries, this Port is another luxurious choice. Labeled “finest reserve,” it’s one of the oldest established Port labels in the world. Its longstanding history honors the practice of traditional Port-making. Sourced from estates in the Douro Valley, only the richest vats of fruit are selected to be aged in oak casks. On the palate, this Port sings with a complex flavor profile, excellent structure, and a long-lasting finish. Try it with chocolate, desserts, nuts, and cheese.




bottle of pol roger brut reserve

Pol Roger Brut Réserve

A stunning sparkler, this Brut Réserve Champagne is made from three different Champenois grape varieties. It is composed of equal parts pinot noir, pinot meunier, and chardonnay. The pinot noir helps create a strong body, while the pinot meunier adds a bit of fresh, well-rounded fruitiness. Meanwhile, the chardonnay brings in some aromatic complexity while lending its signature elegance. This is an excellent choice for holiday toasts, winter brunch dates, or a dazzling date night in the comfort of your home.




bottle of Napa Valley Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon

When cold weather sets in, we tend to crave more substantial flavor profiles. This cab hits all the right notes from start to finish. Aromas of dark chocolate, Bing cherries, and lightly toasted oak mingle with hints of blackberry jam and vanilla. As you enjoy each sip, the flavors of ripe raspberry, blackberry, cocoa, and vanilla linger on the palate. A velvety rich finish is sure to quench your desire for more decadent samplings. CS
