The Wines!!
Merryvale Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley 2017 $34.99
Seen as a pale yellow in the glass, with fresh aromas of grapefruit, lime, mandarin and melon.
A sip brings a sweet beginning and a tartness to the mid-palate balanced with good acidity and weight. Pronounced flavors of citrus and stone fruit mix with subtlehints of spice.
The finish is clean and refreshing, long in length with mineral notes.

Blend: 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Semillon
The Wine Spectator - 90 points
"Vibrant and juicy lemon notes are mouthwatering up front, with layers of apricot, melon and yellow apple flavors leading to succulent peach and green apple accents on the finish.
Shows terrific clarity and intensity."

The Wine Enthusiast - 90 Points
"While barrel-influenced and full-bodied, this unctuous wine remains crisp in edgy acidity, with lean flavors of lemon and grapefruit amidst a deeper, richer background of oak and caramel."

Neyers Chardonnay, Carneros $34.99
Displays a rich, buttery, honeysuckle like nose with well integrated smoke and vanilla.
It is opulent, juicy, with succulent texture, and gobs of ripe, pure, citrusy, buttery fruit.
A full-bodied wine.

Kathryn Hall "Walt", La Brisa Vineyard Pinot Noir, 2016 $43.99
The vineyards in our La Brisa blend are farmed meticulously for low yields and balance in order to capitalize on their distinctive sites.
Each vineyard is blessed with cool maritime conditions and limiting soil profiles.
A blend of Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast vineyards (Dutton Ranch and Sangiacomo Vineyard). Old Wente clone.
 "Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir La Brisa gives up lovely notions of violets, chocolate box and rose hip tea over a core of pomegranate, black cherries and menthol.

Neyer Left Bank Red $39.99
 About 50% each, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, blended together and aged for one year in French oak barrels.
The flavors are restrained – a sensational taste experience that is neither overwhelming, nor lavish.
Only two critics have rated this Napa Valley wine so far: the 2014 vintage was given a score of
93 by Wine Enthusiast.
Based on our Quality Price Ratio calculations, this wine represents good value.

Yardstick "Ruth's Reach" Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley $29.99

91 Points The Wine Enthusiast
A yardstick is an old basis for measurement which can be used as a baseline or reference point. 
YARDSTICK Ruth’s Reach Cabernet Sauvignon is just that: it offers the signature taste of Napa Valley but without the baseline Napa Valley price.
Deep garnet; strawberry and red cherry in the nose with raspberry and blackberry accents.
Broad mid-palate with blackberry and black cherry flavors. Soft and silky tannins. Shows a hint of walnut and plum in the finish.

The Beers!!

Escutcheon "Fancy Clancy" Pilsner, 4 pack $10.99
Debuted at the beginning of this season. It has done well enough that Escutcheon is now putting it in cans to sell.
"As you get older, you think about what you've done in the past. After 45 years, this makes you feel appreciated – people are really giving me a little respect," Haskett says.

Stone "Enjoy By" July 4, 19oz $5.99
Instead, we’ve sent a clear message in the name of the beer itself—further proving that there is no better time than right NOW to enjoy this IPA.
We didn’t stop there with this paradigm-shifting beer either…we introduced Stone Enjoy By Black IPA and unique spinoff versions of Stone Enjoy By IPA to make one devastatingly exciting series.

Maui Brewing "Big Swell" IPA, 6 pack $14.99

6.8% ABV 82 IBU. Follow Review 94 Overall 94 Style. 
Our handcrafted India Pale Ale brewed with a variety of Northwestern hops and balanced with Munich and Crystal malts.
Its flavor begins smooth and malty and is followed with a big burst of citrus, tropical fruit, and piney hop notes.
India Pale Ale was developed in Burton, England, as a "Super-Premium" hoppy pale ale around 1800.
The extra strength in alcohol and hops helped preserve the beer on its long export journeys to India and beyond.
The style developed a following worldwide. Its flavor begins with a smooth, malty creaminess followed with a big burst of dry-hop flavor from English Kent Golding Hops.
