The Wines!!

Louis Jadot Rose', Gamay $12.99
92 Points. jamessuckling.com,  88 Points. Decanter 
A lively rosé from a crafted selection of Gamay from the great Burgundy region. 
Floral and fruity, fresh red currant and raspberry fruit. 
Gamay flowered late and was affected by frost, resulting in yields below the regional average.
Despite that, the grapes were in a perfect state of health, fostered by increased levels of rain in August, by the harvest in early September and were picked when at excellent ripeness levels.

Matchbook Chardonnay $16.99
Matchbook Wine Company is a family-owned winery tucked away in Northern California's gently rolling Dunnigan Hills. Located just 30 minutes north of Sacramento and Davis, Matchbook is a local Yolo County destination for wine lovers looking to discover quality estate-grown varietals.
opens up with aromas of honey and floral perfume framed by a beautiful barrel expression of vanilla and crème brûlée. Flavors of sweet fruit, peach pit, and ripe honeydew melon mingle with subtle notes of tropical fruit and butterscotch. The creamy texture is balanced by a bright, crisp finish. Our Old Head, Estate Bottled Chardonnay is a showcase wine for the Dunnigan Hills terroir.


Delaplane Petit Manseng $29.99
A fruit bomb characterized by intense aromas of tropical fruits (primarily pineapple) while on the palate, this almost dry wine exhibits brisk acidity balanced by concentrated flavors of pineapples and, to a lesser extent, pear and tropical fruits.

Matchbook Petit Sirah $15.99
The inaugural release of our Estate Bottled Petite Sirah has everything you would expect from this intensely flavored grape. Seductive, heady aromas of ripe plum, cardamom, earth and vanilla are followed by bold flavors of blackberry cobbler, cracked pepper and spice. Firm tannins are balanced by a broad dark berry finish that lingers on the palate.

Clos de Los Siete Malbec $18.99
Clos de los Siete is a single wine, a blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and a little Petit-Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
Clos de los Siete is the #1 Malbec blend exported from Argentina and all vintages have consistently received critical acclaim.


The Beers!!

Green Man Lager, 6 pack $13.99
4.2 % ABV
What’s your lightest beer? Craft brewers hear this a lot! Green Man’s answer is this crisp, all natural, light Lager.
We salute all the great breweries around the world that continue to perfect the classic style. Enjoy cold and lighten up! 

Commonwealth Modish, Double IPA, 4 pack $19.99

8.7% ABV
Straw colored hazy Double IPA brewed with 06297, BRU-1 & golden boy mosaic hops.

Lickinghole Creek Nuclear Nugget Imperial Honeyed Ale, 4 pack $15.99
10.5% ABV
 " Darker amber orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving good dots of lace. Really nice, big piney resiny hop nose. Much bigger, more assertive hop than the 4 Pillars IIPA from these guys that we tried earlier. Lighter caramel malt here, light spiciness, and a good bit of honey to it. My first thought when I heard this was a DIPA with honey was of Hopslam, but this is much more piney and resiny, I think. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, moderate sweet. Alcohol works reasonably well. Just a very light warmth on the end. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. 
More slick texture. Pretty nice, big balanced DIPA. Nice longer resiny hoppy finish."
