Take the high road with Long Path Wines

Looking for a quality new wine that will raise your dinner enjoyment a level?

Try Long Path Wines of Napa. Vinted with care and experience, Long Path is perfect for any occasion without breaking the bank. Experience one of these satisfying varietals:

Long Path Chardonnay                                                                                                      

Long Path Chardonnay presents lemon and white peaches on the nose. Fresh flavors of apple and citrus are accented with light buttery notes. It pairs well with creamy pasta dishes, salmon, shellfish, or seasoned chicken dishes.

Long Path Cabernet Sauvignon                                                                             

Displaying pleasant aromas of bright red cherry and berries, this Cabernet has flavors of plum, raspberry, and cherry on the palate, complemented with touches of allspice, cinnamon, and vanilla. Medium bodied with a soft tannic structure, try teaming with steak or a well-seasoned pork chop. It is also very pleasant when paired with hard, aged cheeses before dinner.

Long Path, Red Blend

This melodic combination of California Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Syrah, Cabernet, and Mouvedre creates a bold, dark blend with notes of cassis and toasted coffee on the nose. It is full bodied with concentrated flavors of black tea, ripe raspberries, blueberry jam, and a kiss of oak, yet nicely balanced. Long Path Red makes a welcome companion to brats, burgers, barbeque chicken, and even dark chocolate dipped strawberries.

You can try before you before this Saturday, February 2, at Wyatt’s free Long Path Tasting. All Long Path wines will be on sale!

Race to the liquor store for Woodford Reserve

While some may be preparing their blenders for margaritas this Saturday, the most renowned bourbon event of the year also takes place—the Kentucky Derby.

The Derby is the most famous horse race of the year, steeped in tradition, including a drinking one.

The Mint Julep, the quintessential Southern cocktail, is synonymous with the Kentucky Derby. Woodford, especially Woodford Reserve Bourbon, is the primary sponsor of the Kentucky Derby. Each year, Woodford sponsors the great race, and raises a substantial sum in charity and sponsorship for the event. They even offer a commerative bottle with limited edition artwork that becomes an instant collector’s piece.

For a great whiskey this weekend, place your bets on one of these entries from the Woodford collection:

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon: Woodford’s flagship bourbon is a clean, amber bourbon, with notes of dried fruit, mint, and oranges in its nose and a touch of cocoa and faint vanilla. It is rich and chewy, but smooth and rounded with flavors of cinnamon, toffee, and cocoa. It has a silky, smooth finish that is creamy with a lingering, warm tail. 45.2% ABV.

Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon: Sweet and spicy on the nose, Woodford Reserve Double Oaked offers inviting aromas of vanilla, honey, chocolate and cinnamon with a hint of dried fruit. The palate offers rich flavors of caramel, baked apple, brown sugar and marzipan, which merge with notes of oak, vanilla and honeyed apple on the long finish. Although the oak is certainly pronounced, it accentuates the complex balance of flavors, rather than overwhelming them. 45.2% ABV.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey: Specially selected whiskies are infused with the rich flavor of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. The result is a uniquely sophisticated whisky, bursting with the bold flavor of vanilla and the distinctive smoothness of Crown Royal. 45.2% ABV.

By the way, any respectable liquor store should also offer you the option of buying one of the most sought after drinking cups of the year.  Ask for a proper Mint Julep cup when buying your Woodford Reserve for the 144rd running of the Kentucky Derby.
