The Wines!!

Renegade Rose' $14.99
Renegade Rose is a Syrah driven blend with an entourage of the usual suspects in tow (Cinsault, Grenache, and Mourvedre). A pretty pale pink in color with a bevy of ripe red fruits like strawberries, pomegranates and cherries with fresh acidity and a touch minerality. Light and refreshing (12.5% ABV) this is perfect pairing for your next outdoor barbecue or picnic.

Taking Root Blanc De Cabernet $14.99
Delicate nuances of “early blush” apricot, golden raspberries, Meyer lemon, blood orange, white tea leaf, tarragon, and hazelnut add to this, pretty, complex white wine from red grapes. Drink now for freshness, but this wine will age in the bottle for a couple years from the initial phenolics provided by the red skins. 

Foxen Chardonnay $35.99
Just released - 2016 vintage - a beautiful, mineral-driven effort that boasts aromas of white peach, white flowers, subtle toast and baking bread. Heavily influenced by the nearby Pacific Ocean, located in the southeast corner of the Santa Maria Valley AVA, on Foxen Canyon Road. It lies within the 2000-acre Rancho Tinaquaic. Dick’s great-great grandfather, William Benjamin Foxen, purchased that land—actually 9,000 acres at the time—with a Mexican land grant in 1837. The whole area eventually became known as Foxen Canyon in his honor. 

De Lancellotti ‘La Sorella’ 2016 Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley $29.99
 A two vineyard blend, La Sorella is complex and nicely structured. For La Sorella, "the sister," we blended two Biodynamic vineyards from two AVA's. We sourced Pommard from Lachini Vineyard and 828 clone from our home vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains.
This wine shows a beautiful dark purple hue with notes of dark fruits, spice, and chocolate.  Aged 10 months in French oak, 20% new oak. Aged 10 months in 25% new oak.

Barrel 27 Right Hand Man  Syrah $22.99
Lavender, Blue fruit and creme de cassis on the nose. Berry cobbler, brown spice and maple bacon on the palate. Rich, round and layered. Great value!!

Chateau Vartely Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 ‘Walnut Hill’ $14.99
 Château Vartely has already established itself as one of Moldova's top wineries and attracts over 10,000 wine tourists every year, despite being founded as recently as 2003. Many of the estate's vines grow in conditions and soils very similar to those of the best plots of Bordeaux. Château Vartely also follows the French tradition of overseeing every stage of the winemaking process. From grape harvesting to barrel ageing to bottling, it all takes place under the watchful eye of chief winemaker Arcadie Fosnea. With a diploma in winemaking from a prestigious college in Weinsberg, Germany, he is drawing worldwide acclaim thanks to sumptuous Cabernets like this.

The Beers!!

Kentucky Peach Barrel Wheat Ale 4 pack $15.99
8.0% ABV
a light, crisp ale perfect for lazy, sun-drenched summer days.Images of your real (or fanciful) old Kentucky home in bourbon country are conjured up with every sip, thanks to the brew’s six-week aging period in fresh Kentucky bourbon barrels. Our barrel-aging process balances hints of caramel and vanilla and subtle cereal notes with the juiciness of a fresh ripe peach, creating a golden color. Enjoy this light-bodied, refreshing offering before the bright rays of summer fade into fall.

3 Stars Sonic Hummingbird IPA 4 pack 16 oz $13.99

8.5% ABV
Light copper in color and slightly hazy. Thin white head with minimal glass lacing. AROMA: Dank tropical citrus. TASTE: Rock candy/ cotton candy. Funky and earthy. Deep citrus. AFTERTASTE: Resinous and heavy mouthfeel. NOTES: Very much like rock candy taste. Hops used: Denali, Eureka, Simcoe.

Collective Arts "Life in the Clouds" 4 pack 16
oz $14.99

6.1% ABV, 4.2 BeerAdvocate
Life in the Clouds is our flagship New England style IPA. After experimenting with the Collective Project HAZY IPA we dialed in the Simcoe and Mosaic hops and malt balance to optimize this juicy IPA’s pleasantly fruit forward (think citrus and melon) taste and aroma. In keeping with the nouveau NEIPA tradition, Life in the Clouds is an unfiltered beer, neither overly-sweet nor bitter, with a pillowy mouth feel
