The Wines!!

Alain de la Treille Muscadet $11.99
Maison Alain de la Treille has been located in the heart of the Loire Valley since 1885.   This great dry white wine offers a unique style with a fine and delicate minerality.  Beautiful tension on the palate followed by hints of flower, melon and lime, that finishes with a refreshing crispness.

Michelet Petit Chablis 2017 $19.99
Chablis is famous for crisp, unoaked, mineral-tinged Chardonnays in northern Burgundy.  Michelet's Petit Chablis is powerfully aromatic with white flowers, fresh fruit, lime, and citrus aromas.  It is a wonderful accompaniment to shellfish, oysters, fish, veal, and foie gras. 
Domaine Carra Julieanas 2016 $ 17.99
Some of the finest and most age-worthy expressions of the Gamay grape come not from the fresh and fruity Beaujolais Nouveau, but from the hilly "cru" regions of the north.  This wine exhibits a red plum and cranberry-scented bouquet that is nicely defined.  Very fresh, with supple tannins and a purity of fruit.   Pair it with game, poultry, and cheese.

91 Points Antonio Galloni's Vinous

Grand Veneur Cotes du Rhône Rose 2018 $17.99
Salmon-pink color, clear and brilliant. The nose is fruity and spicy, reminiscent of wild strawberry and fine Provençal spices. Full and well-balanced on the palate with a fruity and fresh finish.  Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre blend.

Grand Veneur Cotes du Rhône Rouge 2016 $16.99
This blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault offers a bouquet of aromas offer fresh berries (wild raspberry, blackcurrant, blackberry) and hints of spices. The palate is big and full-flavored, with silky-smooth tannins and red and black fruit flavors. The finish introduces touches of liquorice and pepper.  

91 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

Domaine du Clos de Sixte 2015 $24.99
An intense red garnet color. On the nose, aromas of red and black ripe fruit (kirsch and wild blackberry). The mouth is full, with aromas of blackcurrant liqueur and spice. Tannins are both harmonious and elegant thanks to the fleshiness of the wine. Hints of licorice and vanilla on the finish, which gives the wine length and complexity.

The Beers!!
Commonwealth "Styx" IPA, 4 pack $17.99
5.0% ABV
No description available yet.
I suspect a citrus leaning, lighter style IPA since summer is just around the corner,
but then Styx is a darker name so we may be surprised!! 
We haven't cracked a can yet, so you can help us build the notes on Friday!!

Commonwealth "Everywhen" Aussie-Inspired Double IPA, 4 pack $19.99

Our 8.3% 
 Inspired Double IPA made with Galaxy hops! This beer is a stonefruit and citrus with low bitterness and a smooth creamy finish!

 Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Blackberry Porter, 4 pack $16.99
This bold and dark beer has a nose of fresh blackberries, and features notes of roasted malt, chocolate and vanilla on the palate.  Finishing with the flavor of blackberry jam reminds you that spring has arrived.
