The Wines!!

Crios Torrontes Susana Balbo $16.99
Pale gold with bright reflections. On the nose, this wine seduces with hints of white pear, white flowers and ripe peach. On the palate, it has a beautiful structure and acidity along with enticing fruit flavors. Plenty of body for a wine that shows such delicate aromas and flavors. Fruity, floral and yet still quite dry.

Finca La Linda Tempranillo $13.99
a red grape variety which forms the backbone of some of the finest wines from Spain and Portugal. Almost every red wine from Rioja and Ribera del Duero has Tempranillo at its core, and in Portugal the variety is widely used in the Douro Valley – under the name Tinta Roriz – both for table wines and fortified wines (Port). Tempranillo vines have been successfully adopted in the New World, especially in California, Argentina and Australia.
Tempranillo means "little early one", a name given to it by Spanish growers who observed its habit of ripening earlier than other grapes.

Luigi Bosca Pinot Noir $24.99
Violet red with aromas of great varietal tipicity with hints of sweet cherries, strawberry, spices and tobacco leaves. Its round and smooth texture is surprising in the palate, with acid fruit and ripe tannins flavors which provide spirit and a long finish. Its well-integrated ageing in oak adds fullness and roundness. It has a tasty and elegantly fresh finish.

Finca La Linda Malbec $13.99
Red wine of purplish red color, bright and young, with very expressive aromas reminiscent of fresh red fruit and spices. It is straightforward and fluid on the palate, with lively tannins. It is intense and pleasant in the mouth, juicy and of good volume, with distinctive variety characteristics and a very-well integrated herbal note finish.

Finca La Linda Malbec Reserve $27.99
A deep purple-red wine of intense aromas reminiscent of plum and fresh spices, typical of this grape variety. It is straight-forward and expressive in the palate, with a ripe fruit and pleasant smoked aftertaste due to its ageing in oak barrels. It is a juicy wine, with incipient tannins and a balanced finish, characteristic of old vines.

The Beers!!

Delirium Noel 22 oz $14.99
Labelled Delirium Christmas and hazy amber-brown with a small head. Strongish in both aroma and taste, but not overbearing with a hint of warming orange fruit evident. Its spices and Belgian yeasts are low tasting but pleasant, as is its sweetness.

Great Lakes Christmas Ale 6 pack $16.99
The aroma of Christmas- caramel/ chocolate malt, with dark fruit, fruitcake, ginger, cinnamon, all spice and nutmeg. Amber, reddish color, a nice clear with pale 1/4" head which does not dissipate. Taste is slightly sweet- a BIG flavored ale without weighting you down.

Hardywood Original GBS Ginger Bread Stout 22 oz $6.99
Made with baby ginger from Casselmonte Farm and wildflower honey from Bearer Farms, Hardywood Gingerbread Stout captures the terroir of Central Virginia in a rich, creamy libation with a velvety mouthfeel and an intriguing evolution of notes from milk chocolate and vanilla, to honeycomb and cinnamon, to a snap of ginger in the finish.
