Amber, leather, fruit, or pine. Whiskey, crackers, never wine.

White and red across a sea. Or clad twice in sable, burgundy.

Hidden, swung, hooked, flown. Suited, bottled, jumping, thrown.

You'll never get me if you're slow. Who I am? Well, "You don't know..."

This could be

JACK or JACKS

Because

It seems most of these words can be combined with the word JACK to have a greater meaning

Amber - Amberjack is an Atlantic and Pacific fish

leather - Leather Jacket? *EDit - @Stiv suggests Leatherjacket Fish or Leather Jack

fruit - Jackfruit

pine - Jack pine , pine tree

Whiskey - Jack Daniels

crackers - Cracker Jack

never wine - No Jack Wine?

White and red across a sea - Union Jack, flag of UK

Or clad twice in sable, burgundy - Dunno, Jack Black twice in Anchorman?

Hidden, swung, hooked, flown - A JACK is a flag flown from a short jackstaff at the bow (front) of a vessel

Suited - Jacks are trump in Eucker

bottled - Bottle of Jack, Jack Daniels

jumping - Jumping Jacks

thrown - Throwing Jacks

You'll never get me if you're slow - Jack be nimble and quick

Who I am? Well, "You don't know..." - You Don't Know Jack, old computer game I used to play :) - This one really solidified it for me.

    $\begingroup$ Finding the line between giving too many clues and making a puzzle too difficult is tough. This has quite a few clues but most are knowledge based. I would say it falls into the GOOD category. Nice Job! $\endgroup$ – MacGyver88 Jun 1 at 15:38

    $\begingroup$ Nice spot :) I think #2 is similar to your #1, i.e. this and the 'never wine' strikes me as just something you cannot attach it to, in contrast to the two that go before it... (maybe?) $\endgroup$ – Stiv Jun 1 at 15:39
