Chris Sherman's October 2011 Drink Picks

Chris Sherman | 9/29/2011

White

DuMol Isobel ChardonnayDuMol Isobel Chardonnay
California
$60

The new name to know in fine American chardonnay (and much more) from the Russian River. The chard has the fruit of a lightly baked apple and pear tart but with crisp citrus and minerality to give it structure and longevity.


RED

Pio Cesare BaroloPio Cesare Barolo
Italy
$60

Top Barolos have an intriguing aroma of earth and flowers: Roses, licorice and coffee all wrap around the fruit. The grand old name of Pio Cesare wraps the bouquet around a lovely basket of plums and raspberries. The '06 and '07 vintages are as suave as Marcello Mastroianni.


WHISKEY

Bulleit Bourbon Bulleit Bourbon
Kentucky
$30

Hot with the smart set yet cool on the tongue, neat or with tonic and a squeeze of lemon.?Clean and mellow with honey, smoke and crystal clear water from Kentucky limestone. A cult worth joining.
