The Wines!!

Tribute Sauvignon Blanc, Monterey, Benziger $17.99
Sauvignon Blanc invites you in with bright lemon, fresh grass, grapefruit and melon.
Enticing citrus flavors are followed by complex minerality.
The wine’s acid is both balanced and integrated, giving it a textured mid-palate and an elegant softness
Neyers Chardonnay, Carneros $34.99
The grapes are whole-cluster pressed, and fermentation was carried out in a mixture of new and used French oak barrels, using native, wild yeast, and periodic lees stirring.
Malolactic fermentation also occurs naturally, without the addition of an artificial starter.
The additional contact with the yeast lees after barrel fermentation results in a lovely aroma that the French call “Noisette” after the hazelnut character it resembles. 

David Bruce Pinot Noir, Sonoma $29.99
The nose shows intense black cherries, blackberries, blood oranges, honeysuckle blossom, rose petals and white pepper.
On the palate, black cherries, blood oranges, pomegranates, nutmeg, with a long finish and round, velvety tannins and an elegant finish.
Tribute Cabernet Sauvignon, California, Benziger $17.99
Elegant, juicy flavors of berry cobbler followed by mocha and wood spice unite, layer by layer to form a rich full-bodied wine with chalky, round tannins and a long finish.
We suggest pairing with a rib eye with peppercorn sauce.

J. Lohr Pure Paso Red, Paso Robles $29.99
We chose Petite Sirah fruit that demonstrated a jammy, blackberry character and saturated color from the Home Ranch.
Missouri-sourced oak from coopers Demptos and Nadalie provided a torrefaction and roasted lactone barrel signature.
The final blend is a balance of the two primary varieties,
The Cabernet Sauvignon component was selected from highly pigmented blocks, primarily from so that neither has a dominant character; they harmonize.”

The Beers!!

Commonwealth Kjenge Double IPA, 4 pack $19.99

8.8% ABV

At Commonwealth Brewing Company, we believe that beer should be adventurous, diverse, extremely drinkable, and sometimes even wild.
We think there is a beer for everyone and find no greater pleasure than when our craft beguiles a friend to try something new.
We uphold rustic farmhouse traditions, huge hop American styles, and the complex depths of wild fermentations.
Located in the newly renovated, former Chesapeake Beach Fire & Rescue station in Virginia Beach, we’re proud to continue the tradition as a local gathering place.
We are so thankful to be able to do what we love in a place we love.

Modern Times Blackhouse Coffee Stout, 4 pack $14.99
ABV - 5.8%  IBU - 40 

It’s so great that you like coffee. I just love that about you. Speaking of which, you’re holding an oatmeal coffee stout positively redolent with coffee aroma and flavor.
It kind of tastes like a chocolate-covered espresso bean, only drier and more like beer.
Nifty fact: we’re one of the only breweries in the world to roast our own coffee, which allows us to be extremely persnickety about which beans we buy and how we roast them.
Taste the persnicketiness!
