  • Picking a good balsamic comes down to knowing a little bit about how balsamic vinegar is made and what you want to use it for. Basically, the traditional method starts by putting the reduction from Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes into a row of wooden barrels that gradually get smaller (known as a battery). The type of wood used will add a distinct flavor as the vinegar is allowed to slowly concentrate over years, while it is moved from the biggest barrel to the smallest barrel.

    Picking a good balsamic comes down to knowing a little bit about how balsamic vinegar is made and what you want to use it for. Basically, the traditional method starts by putting the reduction from Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes into a row of wooden barrels that gradually get smaller (known as a battery). The type of wood used will add a distinct flavor as the vinegar is allowed to slowly concentrate over years, while it is moved from the biggest barrel to the smallest barrel. The grape juice reduction goes through a fermentation process that results in a syrupy, sweet and sour condiment bursting with flavors that resemble raisin, cherry and caramel. The powerful blend of flavors go well with steaks, fish, shrimp, scallops , cheese, vegetables, such as asparagus, or fruits, such as strawberries. Most traditional balsamic has a number that helps indicate how concentrated it is. It is sometimes incorrectly referred to as how old it is, but in fact is not its age. The number indicates that the balsamic has the characteristics of a balsamic with the specified number of years. For example, a “6″ may contain a variety of balsamic vinegars, but have the viscosity and sweetness of one that has been aged for 6 years.

    Commercial grade balsamic vinegar attempts to mimic the flavors by adding thickeners, flavorings and colorings as a substitute for time. There is a wide variety of success (or failure) and some are passable for cooking. Use this type in cooking, possibly for pasta sauces, dips or as an ingredient in marinades.

    Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvée
    “Ever since I started tasting these wines, consistency has been the factor for this particular blend. It is juicy and fruit forward, but not so much as to turn off the trained wine drinker. Aromas of herbs, dried earth, anise and hints of leather. Dark fruits and herbs are evident in the mouth as this wine rolls on the palate. This all points to a complex wine at a great price. Enjoy!”
    – Peter Glarner, C.S.W. (Webster Groves)

    750 mL. bottles, $17.49 each

    Llama Malbec 2011
    “This outstanding Argentinian Malbec combines fullness and fruit with good balance and structure. Six months in French oak adds traditional European flavor.”
    – Mark Lauenstein (Central West End)

    750 mL. bottles, $13.99 each

    Foris Pinot Noir Oregon 2009
    “Approachable yet serious, this wine easily competes with Pinots in the $25 range. Rich, ripe fruit with a velvety texture and earthiness. Pairs well with roasted red meats or by itself!”
    – Chris Young (Clayton)

    750 mL. bottles, $16.99 each

    Spellbound Petite Sirah 2010
    “Smooth, juicy, and fruity with a hint of chocolate and coffee. This wine is perfect for Halloween parties. Let yourself be spellbound!”
    – Ken Etzkorn (Town & Country)

    750 mL. bottles, $14.99 each
