The Wines!!

Fernlands Sauvignon Blanc 2018 $12.99
Marisco Winery was selected as the New Zealand winery of the year in 2011 by the IWSC in London.
The Marris family are pioneers in the wine industry of the Marlborough wine region. Lively aromas of gooseberry, grapefruit, anise and minty herbs.
Fruity, supple and easygoing, with a touch of sweetness to its grapefruit pith flavor. With its attractive sugar/acid balance there's nothing austere about this fruit-driven sauvignon.

Department 66 Cotes Catalans Fragile Rose 2018 $21.99
Fragile is our rosé release from the Department 66 winery in Maury, France.
Inspired by the venerable wines of the Southern Mediterranean, it is made utilizing traditional methods.
In the glass, the wine shimmers with a pale hue of translucent garnet.  Soft aromatics of dried rose petals prevail and invite a tasting.  
With bright hints of strawberry and ripe stone fruits, the wine leads to an opulent mid-palate. Finishing with purpose, it is long and riddled with layers of texture and grace. 

Siduri Santa Barbara County Pinot Not 2017 $29.99

The Wine Enthusiast93 Points
"Winemaker Adam Lee’s first crack at a Santa Barbara County blend is a hit, and he plays in the lighter end of the Pinot Noir spectrum as well. Aromas of crushed slate, red cherry and rose petals lead into a bouncy palate that’s tart in flavors of pomegranate and raspberry." – M.K.

Department 66 Cotes Catalans “Others” 2015 $29.99

92 Points - The Wine Advocate
Ruby red in coloring with a distinguished brick rim, this wine offers alluring notes of marion berries, blue fruits, compote, garriuge, and a touch of dried lavender.   
Rich, concentrated dark fruits are immediately noticeable upon entry which transition effortlessly to a piquant mid palate of plum tart, dried spices, and mountain herbs.   
Persistent acidity juxtaposes the generous core and finishes with a lengthy coda.

Thorn Napa Valley Merlot 2016 $39.99
The Prisoner Wine Company takes an unconventional approach to winemaking by working with impassioned growers to source varietals from vineyards and appellations across California.
This Thorn Merlot is sourced from acclaimed vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley.
The family of small vineyards offers vines of varying ages and regionality, lending to layers of character and complexity.
Earthy aromas open up into cocoa, blackberry, cedar, and anise. It’s smooth with flavors of cherry, chocolate, vanilla, and a mild toastiness.
The finish is long with balanced acidity. Varietal: 81% merlot; 19% blend of syrah, petite sirah, and malbec.

The Beers!!

Stone Enter Night Pilsner, 6 pack $14.99
In collaboration with Metallica, this beer represents the cataclysmic collision of two uncompromising supernatural forces. 
It' s a crisp and refreshing Pilsner that, much like the band, transcends genres, shatters preconceptions and challenges convention.

Escutcheon Growler Kolsch, 6 pack $11.99

a twist on the classic Kölsch from Cologne, having a crisp malty flavor and subtle refreshing notes of German hops.
But don't let it's light color fool you - the flavor runs deep and is more complex than meets the eye.

Clown Shoes Pineapple Space Cake IPA, 4 pack $15.99
Ingredients: Pineapple Puree, Mosaic and Azacca Hops
The Space Cake armada has built a reputation of merciless tactics and relentless conquests that have placed them at the forefront of intergalactic forces.
Going fruity for this IPA release. Pineapple Space Cake, a
7.5 percent ABV IPA brewed with Mosaic hops and fresh pineapple puree.
