This ruby-red wine made with the native Concord grape is easy to drink, fruit-forward, and very enjoyable. This wine offers layered aromas of cherries and blackberries over a smooth, sweet, and coating palate held together by an enticing acidic backbone. Enjoy slightly cold with good company.
Americans have innovated the use of corn in whisky since we first set foot on this continent. Baby Blue is not white lighting nor bourbon. It has the freshness and verve of a traditional corn whisky but with a refined complexity added by brief aging in small oak barrels. It has a round nuttiness and roasty overtones with a smooth finish. Legal definitions it could be labeled as a bourbon, but it is not essentially a bourbon in character. Bourbon is largely dominated by the flavors of the wood in the barrel; the new charred oak barrels give bourbon is defining and recognizable flavors, color and aroma.
Our brief aging in oak certainly contributes some of the recognizable oak notes and characteristic of bourbon, but these flavors do not dominate the rich corn flavors we have taken so much trouble to impart to the spirit. In any case, bourbon drinkers, as well as other whisky drinkers, will find plenty here to like. Baby Blue is not only the first Texas whisky on the market since Prohibition, but so far we know the only blue corn whisky made anywhere. It pays homage to the American whisky tradition and while adding something we think is new and innovative.
Balcones Baby Blue is made from 100% roasted Hopi blue corn. The Hopi have used it as a staple for thousands of years. Their origin mythology describes how the Creator gave the first people corn of many types, and the Hopi received the blue corn. The Hopi use blue corn as a major food source, but it has spiritual significance for them as well. It is used in many ceremonies representing long life, wisdom, understanding, and the strength that comes through overcoming hardship.
While Hopi blue corn we use has an extremely interesting history, there is really only reason one we prefer it to all other corn for our whisky– taste. Its gorgeous midnight blue kernels are packed with a rich, roasty nuttiness that is truly exceptional. Unlike most of the blue corn on the market, Hopi blue corn is not just white dent corn which has been specially crossed to give it a blue tint. There is a lot of quality corn in this category, even some nice organic examples. But in a blind taste test, we could not tell the blue from the white corn. Hopi blue corn, however, has been grown with the same rich color and flavor for thousands of years and is the only corn that could impart the rich character we require for our whisky.
A true connoisseur's Tequila, 1800 Anejo is designed for the ultimate Tequila lover. Made from 100% Blue Agave, the dark amber hue comes from the deeply charred oak barrels in which it rests for more than one year. Luscious aromas of vanilla, nutmeg and cloves are combined with layers of intense butterscotch and chocolate. The rich, well-rounded flavor is an elegant marriage of Agave, spices and toasted oak with a pleasantly spicy finish of pepper and honey. 1800 Anejo is best enjoyed on its own, served neat or on the rocks with a twist of orange.

Bodegas Valdemar uses grapes from their own vineyards in Riojas Alta and Alavesa to create this cuvée of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano and 5% Garnacha. It's very much a forward style, potentially mirroring the warmth of the 2012 vintage, with zesty, flavorful, pleasantly gamey foods grown from the ground tannins. Smoky and mineral notes outline a center of fresh dark cherry and licorice in this engaging red. Energetic causticity and all around coordinated tannins give this a decent structure. Drink now through 2024. New and fruity Riojas named, Joven, (which means youthful) see insignificant maturing before discharge, however increasingly genuine Rioja wines experience various years in oak.
