The Wines!!
Domaine des Bertrand, Elegance Rose', Provence , $19.99
 From the heart of provence an elegant pale pink rosé with aromas of peach, and nectarine.
Fresh, crisp and easy-drinking Château des Bertrands is a 200-hectare (494-acre) estate located at the heart of the Natura 2000 protected area
dedicated to the protection of the rare Hermann Tortoise, set at the foot of the Maures hill chain.
Château des Bertrands is an authentic Provence-style wine estate with 200 acres of vineyards and an equestrian center.
Established in 1964 and located at the very heart of Provence, 20 miles away from Saint-Tropez.
The winery is owned by one of the top owners and producers of fine rosés in Provence, Les Vignobles De Berne.

Rubus French White Blend $15.99
Fresh, clean and lively with intense exotic fruit aromas.
Crisp, clean and zesty in the mouth, it offers delicate flavors of citrus fruit and grapefruit, and a long lingering finish.

Rabble Chardonnay, Rob Murray  $23.99

100% Chardonnay
Aromatically the 2016 Rabble is driven with crushed pineapple, white peach, pear, and hazelnut notes.
This vintage is characterized by being a drought year, which we believe highlights the minerality in this wine. Wines from this vinatge typically exhibit an interesting saline component “underneath” the fruit.
On the palate our Rabble Chardonnay has luscious mouthfeel with bright acidity.
The flavor profile begins with citrus, pear and transitions to a tropical laden finish driven with pineapple and guava.

Boen Pinot Noir , Russian River Valley $26.99

"Intense aromas of cherry, dark chocolate, coconut, black licorice and a hint of toast, along with smoked meat, blueberry and barrel spice.
The palate is lush with a raisin and dried strawberry character layered with cola, vanilla cream soda and black licorice.
Powerful structure balanced with bright acidity and fine, persistent tannins for a wine with complexity, opulence and a long, satisfying finish." 
Joe Wagner,The Winemaker

The Rule, Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast, $19.99
Black cherry, currant, and vanilla, with a hint of floral, are rooted in the initial aromas of this Cabernet.
The concentrated palate evolves from blackberries into a lush combination of licorice, tobacco, and toasty oak.
FOOD PAIRINGS: The Rule pairs well with beef, duck and grilled meats of all kinds.

The Beers!!
Collective Arts, Life in the Clouds, 4 pack $14.99
Simcoe and Mosaic hops balance each other to make this juicy IPA explosively fruit forward in both taste and aroma while curbing any unbearable sweetness to make an extremely drinkable beer.

Lost Coast Hazy IPA, 6 pack $11.99
Loaded with Mosaic and Citra Hops, the aroma is bursting with citrus and fruit. Notably orange, grape, passion fruit and blueberry come to the forefront.
Paired with barley, rolled oats and East Coast Ale Yeast, the texture is silky and refreshing and the appearance is hazy gold.

Knee Deep Simtra Triple IPA, 22 oz, $13.99
"Dark-gold, verging on amber, it could be the poster child for the West Coast IPA style. Initial head is a finger thin and dissipates quickly--due to high ABV?
Totally transparent. Smell is pungently dank, especially as it warms. Taste-wise, there's a light caramel when it first hits the tongue, along with a pithy bitterness.
Booze is noticeable, but not off-putting, possibly a feature of drinking it relatively fresh.
The malts stay in their place, always cowering under the bitter hops. Lots of reviews talk about it being "juicy," but I'd say it's nothing like the NE style of "juice" I normally think of. Maybe citrus, if you're talking orange rind/lemon zest.
Mouthfeel is more lush than you might expect for the ABV, even Pliny-like, making the whole package extremely drinkable."
