All this crappy winter weather got you down? Fear not – the staff at Liquor Direct has concocted a wickedly decadent wine tasting this weekend, presented in 2 parts so as not to put you into sensory overload. Yes, it is time for the bi-annual staff showcase (or should we say “smackdown”?) at Liquor Direct Wine & Spirits.

The Covington staff has made their selections, and they are as follows:
1. Hendry Zinfandel Block 28 2005
2. Ridge Lytton Springs 2006
3. Atteca Armas 2005
4. O’Brien Seduction 2005
5. Mas de Can Blau 2005

And as for the Fort Thomas staff, the line-up goes something like this:
1. Torbreck Woodcutter’s Shiraz 2007
2. Muga Rioja Reserva 2004
3. Tintara Shiraz Reserve 2002
4. Orin Swift The Prisoner 2007
5. Torbreck The Struie 2005

Strangely enough, no white wines were selected this time around. The staff is vying for bragging rights and a space in each store to call their own (for display purposes). It’s up to you, my friends, to select what you think is the best of the best. Come by, cast your vote, and shake off those winter blues with some powerhouse reds! Hope to see you there.
(Friday night - Jan. 30 - from 4-8pm it's Covington at the Covington store and Fort Thomas at the Fort Thomas store. Saturday afternoon - Jan. 31 - from 2-6pm it's switched.)
