The Wines!!
Steorra Brut NV California, $22.99
A lover of champagne, Joe Wagner has long wanted to create a classic sparkling wine using Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fruit.
It’s Steorra, his first-ever sparkling wine, takes its name from the Old English word for ‘star’ and is a non-vintage Brut style sparkling
sourced from Sonoma County’s cool-climate Russian River Valley esteemed for these grape varieties.
Steorra is made in an elegant soft style with a fine bead and universally appealing flavors of lemon sherbet, luscious cream, subtle toastiness and a fresh finish.

Elizabeth Spencer Sauvignon Blanc $19.99
Hay and quince and a touch of Sugar Snap pea on the nose.
These fresh qualities are countered by delicate honeysuckle and apple, with a crisp finish of citrus fruit and a smidgen of cut grass.
A fresh, crisp Sauvignon Blanc with a vibrant intensity that is well-balanced with good acidity and a lively, refreshing finish.

Stags Leap Cellars KARIA Chardonnay $38.99
The name KARIA (kar-ee-ah) is derived from a Greek word meaning graceful, and it is this very character that is embodied in this wine.
With stylistic inspiration coming specifically from Stag's Leap Wine Cellars' Arcadia Vineyard Chardonnay,
the wine is refreshing, light and graceful on the palate, with bright acidity supporting ripe fruit flavors and a butterfly kiss of oak.

Belle Glos Pinot Noir "Las Alturas" $49.99

90 pts WS; 90 pts WE
Intense ruby red in color, this wine is delightfully complex rich and layered.  
Aromas of currant, warm blackberry and a touch of black licorice, open up to a palate that is pure and supple with ripe plum,
wild berries and exotic spices.
The finish is lengthy and fillling, displaying ripe  tannins, balanced acidity and a hint of mocha.

Casa Lapostolle "Canto de Apalta" $22.99

90 Points! WS
"A rich, smoky red, sporting dark cassis, grilled fig and macerated cherry notes to the iron, smoke and dark spice flavors that linger through the mocha-tinged finish.
Carmenère, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2015. 8,500 cases made. –NW."
Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley $59.99
90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc, 0.5% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Malbec
James Suckling 90 points
"Fresh blackcurrants, licorice, cut grass and oyster shell.
Medium body, fresh acidity and a fruity finish. Drink now or hold."

The Wine Enthusiast 90 points
"Juicy, round and silky, this is an approachable, relatively light-bodied wine that doesn't shirk on underlying brawn.
Moderate structure maintains a fresh, focused likability as slightly spicy oak hits hardest and most pleasantly on the finish."

The Beers!!
Miloslawski (Pear Cider) Perry, Poland, 500mL $5.99
(Pear Cider) Perry, also referred to as pear cider, is a traditional Polish beverage made from fermented pear juice.
The semi-sweet Perry Miloslawski has an exceptionally mild flavor which comes from local pears ripening in Polish orchards.  
The cider is light, sweet and sour, pleasantly effervescent and has a captivating aroma.

Hardywood "None of This Makes Sense" New England IPA, 4 pack $15.99

7.5% ABV 
A return of a favorite – None of this Makes Sense is a New England-style Double IPA with Mosaic and El Dorado.
For fans of the hoppy!

Dugges and Stillwater Cocoa Cacao $8.99
Today’s beer that is up for scrutiny is a “collaboration” of sorts between Dugges and the aforementioned “gypsy” brewer, Stillwater Artisanal Ales. 
Cocoa Cacao is an Imperial chocolate stout brewed with cacao, coconut and vanilla and weighs in at 
a whopping 11.5 percent ABV.
