Chris Sherman | 11/3/2011

White

J.J. Prum Riesling KabinettJ.J. Prum Riesling Kabinett
Mosel, Germany
$35

Brilliantly dry, aromatic wines from steep slate vineyards where Prum ancestors built a huge sundial (Sonnenuhr) for the town of Wehlen across the river centuries ago. Keeps on ticking with food of all sorts.


RED

Seghesio Old Vine ZinfandelSeghesio Old Vine Zinfandel
Healdsburg, Calif.
$40

Vines don't get much older: These average 90 years old, and the Seghesio growers go back to 1893. Big perfume, berries and all the briars, spice and history you'd expect from a pioneer. Good Thanksgiving guest.


Liqueur

Hum liqueur Hum liqueur
Chicago
$40

Rum base infused with sexy twists of hibiscus, ginger and cardamom so it's earthy and sparkling red. One of the most luscious new-generation spirits. Hot with hipster mixologists, and very cool on the rocks.
