Wind Racer Russian River Valley Chardonnay $39.99

93+ Points Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The 2014 Chardonnay Russian River Valley has lemongrass, orange blossoms and cedar notes over a core of white peaches, grapefruit and green mango. Medium to full-bodied with a gorgeously creamy textured and mouth-filling stone fruit and citrus layers, it has a racy backbone and a very long finish, with some toasty notes coming through."

90 Points The Wine Enthusiast
"Aged in French oak for more than a year (20% new), this is a full-bodied and layered wine. Strong aromas of French butter and baguette dominate the nose. The midpalate offers more brightness, revealing high-toned accents of apple blossom, lemon and mango wrapped in tart acidity before returning to the richness of crème brûlée on the close." 

Sanford Pinot Noir, Fountain Hill $29.99
Dark ruby in color, with deep, brooding aromas of blueberry and pomegranate, with hints of rose petal and lavender, this is both intense and complex. The flavors burst onto the palate enveloped in supple, ripe tannins. The impeccably balanced acidity keeps the wine lively to its lengthy finish. Night harvesting, gentle destemming, gentle fermention in an open top tank and barrel aging in the finest French oak barrels are some of the classic Burgundian techniques employed to craft this lovely wine.?

Darby "Purple Haze" Red Blend $24.99
It has the typical Silky texture you are used to with our wines. Has amazing depth & richness with blackberry, plum, cassis and earth notes followed by a generous finish and soft tannins. We added a little more Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon this year that was aged in the best french oak.  Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petite Verdot, Merlot and a touch of Petit Sirah.  Will age very well for the next 7-10 years.

Adroit Theory "All I see is Carrion" 22 oz. $13.99
Belgian Quad. Part 1: You scavenge the earth grasping at life's sweet indulgences. Never ending consumption drives your futile existence.
A mindless march towards your own demise, wading through a sea of rotting flesh, no living creature unscathed.

Komes Baltic Porter, Poland, 500 mL $6.99
KOMES PORTER reflects the history of brewing, referring to the 18th century tradition of brewing porters in the Baltic states. At their prime, Baltic porters represented one third of the market, which is the best evidence of their popularity. We offer you a well-balanced, dark, strong beer with a distinct flavour. Slow fermentation at low temperatures in open vats, coupled with long (at least 3 months) maturation have resulted in the beer’s character and complete, complex nature. The Porter’s bouquet matures further in the bottle. Time is on its side.
