Chris Sherman's July 2011 Drink Picks

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.

Ballot Box

Prices have been increasing on beef and pork. How will this impact your grocery bill?

  • Greatly: I will be spending more because I buy a lot of beef and pork
  • Some: I will likely be switching to cheaper cuts or to poultry
  • Not much: I have been cutting back on meat anyway
  • Not at all: I don't eat beef or pork
