The burning chair is a blend of bourbons from three distilleries: one in each Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana. The whiskey is aged in new, charred American oak until it reaches the desired maturity. Then Phinney works his magic and finishes the blended product in barrels previously used for his cabernet based wine for eight long months.

(Gates Circle’s blend is aged a little different. We used both zinfandel and Grenache wine barrels 2/3 Zin and 1/3 Grenache).

Aromatically intriguing with brown sugar, caramel, butterscotch and toasty oak.

The palate is smooth and lush with loads of vanilla bean, baking spices, maple and baked apples.

The finish is long and exciting, begging for another sip.

Love, like wine, gets better with time. Stop in to Gates Circle Liquor and get your loved one the very best wine (or Champagne) our store has to offer.

CrossBarn Chardonnay: offers structure and weight in balance with pure concentrated fruit. Alluring stone fruit flavors carry the palate along with hints of citrus and honeysuckle that evolve into a creamy mid-palate before ending in a long, clean finish with crisp acidity.

Petterino Gattinara: is 100% Nebbiolo sourced from the vineyards of Permolone, Castelle and Guardie in Gattinara and aged for 3 years in oak barrels with an additional minimum of 6 months in stainless steel before bottling. This wine is excellent with wild mushroom risotto with a side of skirt steak.

Schramsberg Mirabelle Brut Rosé: is a specially crafted blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Schramsberg’s select cool-climate vineyards. The wine has generous aromas of strawberry, candied orange, watermelon and cinnamon. The taste is complementary to the nose with flavors of smoky red cherry, blood orange and red grapefruit.

Laurent-Perrier Brut: Pale colour. Lemon shortbread nose, the tiniest hint of marzipan, verbena. Needle-fine mousse and intense, sharpened, lemon-sherbet acidity. Very pointed, with a bit of lemon-bon-bon sweetness on the finish. Razor-sharp finish. Elegant, angular, classic.

Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve: is a light, fine and harmonious champagne. Its blend is made with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from three different years, sourced from the best sites in the Champagne region. This cuvee has reflections of a straw yellow color. It stands out by the finesse of its slowly rising bubbles and its persistent and abounding mousse.
