The Wines!!

Four Vines "Naked" Unoaked Chardonnay $12.99
”Naked“ is Four Vines expression for a No-Oak style of winemaking. With fresh aromas of pineapple, mango and grapefruit, Naked Chardonnay defines summer in a glass. Juicy flavors of melon and white peach, along with bright acidity and a crisp finish will have you coming back for more and more.

Chardenet Chardonnay, Durell Vineyard $32.99

93 Points WE
This is a sublime, succulent and entirely rewarding white from the great vineyard site that is Durell. The vines used by this producer date back to 1994, 1995 and 2003. Richly defined, the wine is lengthy and complex in honeycomb, ginger and a powerful mix of acidity and texture, finishing in a bite of orange.

Diora Pinot Noir $24.99
Deep, intense garnet color in the glass, aromas of black cherries, brown sugar and mocha set the stage for a robust palate of concentrated fruit flavors and textured mouthfeel, anchored by Pinot Noir’s signature smooth acidity. Round, soft and full-bodied with excellent weight in the mid-palate, layers of black cherry, dark chocolate, spice and coffee bean unfold with earthy undertones of chaparral and truffle.

Antinori Peppoli Chianti Classico $26.99
The 2014 Pèppoli is ruby red in color. Intensely fruity notes of cherries and red currants dominate on the nose along with integrated hints of violets and a light touch of toasted oak. The palate, fresh and savory with supple tannins, shows a finish and aftertaste which recall the sensations first felt on the nose.

Kaiken "Ultra" Cabernet Sauvignon $22.99

93 Points - James Suckling
"Serious and rich aromas with blueberry and blackberry character and hints of almonds. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh and bright finish. Drink now or hold."
91 Points - The Wine Spectator ***Smart Buy***
"A ripe and powerful red, with concentrated flavors of dark cherry, smoke and Asian spice that are loaded with chocolate and fresh-ground coffee notes. Creamy and lush on the rich finish. Drink now through 2020." 
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
" Earthy blackberry aromas are spicy and moderately complex.
Structured and sound on the palate, with a strong tannic framework, this tastes of well-defined cherry and cassis.
Spice and chocolaty notes on the finish are barrel driven."

Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve $28.00

86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot
93 Points Wine Spectator

Chewy with tannin, but bursting with fresh currant and
plum, sneaking in hints of mint and black tea as the finish lingers.
A graceful wine that has miles to go.

The Beers!!

Von Trapp Vienna Dunkel Lager 6 pack bottles $11.99
5.7 ABV 22 IBU
Creamy, toffee aromas balance the bitterness of Munich malts in our roasted brown lager. Although dark in color, Dunkel is medium in body and finishes dry and clean, resulting in a rich lager that can be enjoyed througout the year.

Adroit Theory Death of Civilization, in Slow Motion (Valkyrie) 22 oz. $13.99

8.2 ABV
?Time seeps through the filter of the mind, down the throat of realization as you choke on your self-inflicted philistinism, like the smog that surrounds you. You are now a cog, a drone to that which provides you with the substance of life. The question is, how did we get here?
Notes of Peach and Stone Fruit, Subtle Earthiness, Mild Bitterness, Dry Finish.

Maui Brewing, Coconut Hiwa Porter 4 pack $12.99

6.0 ABV
?A robust dark ale with hand-toasted coconut & hints of mocha.
