Verjus Non-Alcoholic "Green Juice" 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

This malt beverage has less than 0.5% alcohol by volume, but has 100% of the taste. But creating a full, rich non-alcoholic beer is a challenge. It's a race to stop the fermentation before alcohol can form, but not before it achieves the distinctive taste and aroma of a Beck's.

Big black currant and black plum fruit greet the nose over black olive, bay leaf, roast beef, tobacco and mint nuances. This is dry, linear and compact on entry with a lovely brambly black currant perfume. There's plenty of tannins here but they're not too dry and they are well covered by the earthy, slightly leather black fruits on the palate. Bordering on austere, this delivers a really compelling blend of savory olive and tobacco flavors along with the ripe and almost, but not quite, sweet black fruit. The finish is dominated by that same black fruit with oak spice lurking under the fruit. Not as long as one might hope but still lovely with a wild cherry streak running through it that pops on the finale. 92pts

supposedly this wine won some Gold Medal in a contest against full alcohol wines....I don't know what it was compared to but this was horrible. The only thing I can compare it to is watered down, vinegared, Kool-ade.... Ugh..

Yuck....this is the nastiest Pina Colada mix I have ever tasted in my life....and I have been a bartender for over 20 years. Left a terrible after taste in all of our mouths. I have traveled all over the tropics and have never tasted a Pina Colada as nasty as these. Go with "Bacardi frozen mixers" in your grocery store's freezer section. Now that is the best tasting Colada mix you will ever have....I guarantee it.

Tropical fruit, apple, and some oak: happy to have something that tastes fresh.

This was my first 2008 vintage. I am not familiar with this variety, and this particular wine I felt really needs some getting used to. Not sure if it was intentional, but the bouget was very fragrant with a slight hint of mildew. The color wasfantastic purply inky, unlike the more reddish of the red wine cadre. The taste was strongly boysenberry (as it says on the label) but reminds me of a fenced fallow pasture. Don't know why. Didn't pair well with a roasted chicken and root vegetable dish at all. In fact, I ended up throwing my glass out and opening something else. That doesn't happen often in my house. I am a pretty solid put er up er with offness. Maybe I'll try this variety again by another winery to get a feel for this variety, but its not on my list of favs so far.

Rose's lime juice is a sweetened, concentrated lime juice, perfect for use in a variety of mixed drinks and recipes. Sold in a 1 liter plastic bottle.

This flavorful, soft Cabernet should satisfy your guests, yet won't break the bank. It has pleasant flavors of black currants, cherries, sage, dill, tobacco, and smoky oak, and the tannins are firm and a little tea-like. Finishes with a ripe, fruity flourish.

While you're waiting for your huge Cabs to age, sustain yourself with this drinkable wine tonight. It's soft and gentle, with pretty flavors of blackberries, black cherries and coffee. Has an elegance that belies the affordable price.

A classic California Cab. This wine has black cherry and olive hints on the nose and a silky, mildly tannic mouthfeel.

Aromas of black cherry, currants, blueberry, violets and jammy black fruits that extend into a complex bouquet of cedar, mocha, cigar box and black olives. The fruit shows ripe and ample tannins with a plump, concentrated structure supported with benevolent acidity.

A little harsh and green, with mint,. black currant and cedar flavors that are dry and tannic. Good everyday Cab that will benefit from decanting.

A smooth, supple structure will overwhelm you at first taste. J. Lohr's Cabernet is full of rich cherry and blueberry flavors rounded out by a delicate oak balance.

<p>The alcohol is carefully removed, but only once the beer has fully matured so it locks in the famous Bitburger taste and at the same time it reduces. The full fermentation process means that Bitburger Drive can be tapped straight from the keg, unlike most other beers. And because it is fully fermented, there's no need for it to be pasteurised, giving it a fresh taste.&nbsp;</p>
