I shouldn’t have to tell you, but after Fleet Farm, Home Depot, Menard’s, or whatever local hardware store your dad frequents, the store with the beer, wine, and spirits is probably his favorite. Maybe I’m just going by my shopping habits, but we have what Dad wants. Whether it’s a rich red wine to go with a grilled steak, a cool beer to go with spicy fish tacos or brats or a heady and satisfying glass of Bourbon to finish off a perfect summer evening, we have it.

For the big guy, we have selected a couple of excellent reds from Paso Robles (an area in California where manly wines are made).  It’s been a while since I have visited the “805” and I need to get back for a visit. Justin continues to craft beautiful and concentrated wines that are pure pleasure to drink. Dad will love it. Meanwhile, the Beckett Brother’s project, Chronic Cellars is back in town after a year, or so, hiatus. If your Dad likes a more decadent red, the Purple Paradise is a Zinfandel-based red blend overlaid in dark berries and spice. They call it Chronic for a reason. And let’s not forget the Bourbon (Kentucky rocks!). This is from a single barrel which Fred Brett (Top Ten’s Liquor Buyer) and our staff selected. Unique and wonderful, just like Dad.

Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve Bourbon
While most bourbons are blended together from multiple barrels to ensure consistency of flavor, Knob Creek Reserve Single Barrel Bourbon is bottled from single casks, hand-picked based on their final age, rack placement and other proprietary methods passed down for many generations. Aged for a minimum of nine years and bottled at a robust 120 proof, the bourbon has a deep amber and henna color, as well as an aroma of toasted nuts, vanilla bean, and oak. The palate is filled with dried fruits, maple syrup, and a rum sweetness, and leads to a finish marked by a woody, cinnamon spice, evergreen, and caramel kick.

Justin Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon
justin_cab_13_750 Dark purple ruby core, slightly lighter at the rim showing light staining on the glass. Aromatic with bright ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, baking spice, savory dried autumn leaves, subtle violet floral notes with a hint of caramelized barrel sweetness. Moderately dry and full bodied, with ripe red and black cherry, and blackcurrant fruit joined by vanilla and cinnamon spice notes on the entry. The mid-palate is fresh with sustained ripe fruit, toasty oak notes, and softly textured tannins. The finish is moderately long with notes of cherry candy and blackcurrant fruit matched with subtle classic Cabernet savory elements.
