Ciroc Pineapple NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Though the Wine Advocate has been bellowing it for years, it is worth repeating: Columbia Crest is the source of some of the finest values in the world. I am awestruck that winemaker Ray Einberger and his team can produce such quality in industrial-size quantities. For example, the 2003 Chardonnay Grand Estates (225,000 cases!) reveals delightful aromatics of vanilla bean and ripe pear. On the palate, this medium-bodied wine is broad, spicy, and silky-textured. Its vanilla, spice, and white fruit flavors linger in its appealingly supple and pure finish. Drink this awesome value over the next 1-2 years.

He is famous for declaring the brand the “Official Vodka of New Year’s.”  Read less

Ciroc Frost is the first and only vodka to be made entirely from grapes. Ciroc is distilled five times in traditional copper pot stills from several varieties of grapes, including "snap-frost" Mauzaz grapes, which are picked late in the season allowing them to retain a higher sugar content.
