The Wines!!
King Estate Sauvignon Blanc $15.99
Has a glistening pale straw color with enticing aromas of freshly cut white peach, lychee, lemon zest and a core of damp slate.
The palate is crisp and vibrant with ripe guava, stone fruit and honey dew flavors, framed by citrus zest and wet concrete.

Cote Mas Limoux Rose' $19.99

Innovation and a passion for the Languedoc are what drives Jean-Claude Mas. Since taking the helm of his family’s winery in 2000,
he has prioritized sourcing the highest quality grapes to craft wines of authenticity and refinement.
A lovely pink with refined scents of honeysuckle, peach and apricot lead way to a soft mouthfeel of grapefruit and a hint of blood orange.
An excellent aperitif that pairs well with all styles of cuisine

Albert Bichot Macon-Lugny "Les Charmes" $24.99

"Vibrant acidity, good depth and fine tension. I love the cohesion and intensity of this Mâcon"
Neal Martin
Wine Advocate for 2015

13.5% ABV
Lugny is one of the top villages of Burgundy’s Mâcon region and Albert Bichot’s delicious Les Charmes is one of its most distinctive wines.
What’s more, Les Charmes also offers outstanding value – rare for Burgundy.
The large, single vineyard nurtures a special Chardonnay clone known as Musk which promotes exceptional aromas,
further enhanced by the local chalk and limestone soils.
An idyllic south-southeast orientation and the age of the vines, around 40 years, adds to the wine’s ripeness and intensity.
Several growers make wine from this vineyard but Albert Bichot is one of the best.
Fresh, bright, pure and well balanced, Les Charmes makes a lovely accompaniment to seafood, chicken and creamy risottos.
Serve in large bowled glasses.

Alain Jaume Cotes du Rhone, Carianne "Les Travees" $29.99

Far more serious is the Alain Jaume Côtes du Rhône-Villages Cairanne Les Travées.
Composed of two-thirds Grenache, one-third Syrah, and about 5% Mourvèdre added to the blend,
this loaded vintage reveals good structure, lots of chocolaty black cherries and blackcurrants intertwined with loamy forest floor and underbrush notes.

Casa Rena Malbec, Naoki's Vineyard $19.99

On the nose, marked floral profile characteristics of this property, as well as the typical notes of the varietal: plums and fresh red fruit with floral notes and a subtle touch of spices from the local flora. Limestone outcroppings in the vineyard create a mineral texture and fresh mouthfeel with polished tannins. It is a complex and balanced wine with a long finish.Pair with slow-braised short ribs, bacon-wrapped dates, or spicy cheeses.
Critical Acclaim 
RP92 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The fourth crop from new vines usually yields very concentrated juice full of flavors and aromas, as it's the first time the plant is able to produce enough grapes as the root system should be properly established and it feels like the plant has been waiting to express itself. It combines some herbal aromas with plenty of violets, very floral and aromatic. The palate revealed fine tannins and very good acidity and balance. The violets kept growing as the wine sat in the glass. Very showy. Quite impressive, especially for a warmer, riper year.
WS92 Wine Spectator
Ripe, rich and robust, with a complex mix of ground coffee, chocolate and dark fruit flavors. Asian spice notes fill in midpalate. The finish that is loaded with cocoa powder and cream accents. Drink now through 2020.


Hardywood Pit Pit Hooray, 4 pack $15.99
7.5% ABV. 
Bright and juicy, Pit Pit Hooray uses Azzaca Hops and heaps of Apricot puree to provide a fruit forward IPA experience.
Soft in mouthfeel but full bodied, this take on a New England IPA will make you want to cheer!
