Iím a big fan of Austriaís Zweigelt reds, and the beautiful acidity and fresh berry fruitiness of the 2013 Johannes Zillinger Velue Zweigelt will make you one, too. Made with natural yeast and no added sulfites, Zillingerís wines are some of the purest on the market. $22.

We love Four Roses single-barrel bourbon so much we literally bought a whole barrel. Each is unique because itís bottled one barrel at a time, but the flavor profile is consistently packed with baking spices, ripe red fruits and rich caramel notes. Check each bottleís label to find out which barrel it came from. Enjoy it on the rocks or in any bourbon cocktail. $37. Starrís Wine & Spirits, 1135 S.
