Chris Sherman | 7/13/2011

White

JJ Prum Wehlener SonnenuhrJJ Prum Wehlener Sonnenuhr
Germany
$40

Old and new blend perfectly. Prum has been in prized vineyards in Wehlen for centuries. The superb 2009 Prum rieslings are near perfect, flowery and peachy while crisp and mineral fresh as a mountain stream. Mates swimmingly with trout, snapper or shrimp.


RED

The Prisoner, Orin SwiftThe Prisoner, Orin Swift
California
$30

Big, spicy and lush, the blend is a little bit Rhone and a whole lot old California. Half zin and the rest cabernet syrah, petite sirah, even a splash of charbono, this wine wants steak pizzaiola sauce.


Vodka

Effen VodkaEffen Vodka
Netherlands
$30

This classy Dutch luxury brand has come up with an adult flavor that matches the clean, clear spirit. No candy here but the garden taste of cucumbers perfect for a bloody Mary, a vodka tonic or a ginger martini. Savory ingredient for bar chefs.

  • Reserved... I'm ready to vote, but particularly unsure about the potential outcome.
  • Meh - I'm just holding in my nose and pulling the lever.
  • Not at all interested. Why bother?
