The Wines!!
Vin Terra Sauvignon Blanc $12.99
Although this Sauvignon Blanc is from a region 180 miles south of Marlborough, New Zealand, it exhibits similar characters to its more famous neighbor. 
Heady aromas of grapefruit, lime, jalapeño pepper and nettles lead to a bright and citrusy palate. 
A touch of residual sugar helps balance the zingy acidity and adds texture and fruit weight to this simple but delicious wine.

Peyrassol Commenderie Rose' $24.99

Its rosy appearance is soft as a dream, and an expressive, gourmet nose lends charm to this blend dominated by wild berries: 
gooseberry and raspberry reveal themselves in a crisp, silky palate enhanced with an elegant touch of minerality.
Ideal as an aperitif, to accompany tapas, but also goes well with all varieties of grilled fish, beef or fish tartare and fresh berry desserts.

Elouan "Klamath's Kettle" Reserve Pinot Noir $39.99

This Oregon reserve pinot noir shows with beautiful color, excellent depth, solid structure, and firm acidity. 
Lively notes of raspberry, cranberry, and red cherry with hints of dry herbs. 
Rich and finessed, this Oregon pinot noir melds both ripe fruit flavors of cranberry, strawberry, and black fruit flavors of plum and currants. 
Exceptionally smooth tannins with a lingering finish. 
Pair with slow-cooked duck, gorgonzola cheese, grilled filet, or lamb chops with red-wine reduction glaze.

Orin Swift WA, Washington State $19.99

Deep purple in color, the wine brims with aromas of wild blueberries, cassis, and pleasing notes of forest floor. 
The palate is initially treated to dense flavors of plum, milk chocolate and framboise. 
Following, a delightful interplay of violet, anise, black tea, and brown spices soon emerge giving further character to the wine. 
Silky tannins encapsulate things with a very pure and true finish.

The Beers!!
Perennial Saison de Lis, 4 pack 16 oz. $14.99
ABV = 5%
A straw colored Belgian-style Saison brewed with chamomile flowers. 
It is fermented with a traditional saison yeast strain that imparts fruity and spicy notes that dovetail perfectly with the tea-like quality of the chamomile. 
Finishes dry, tart, and refreshing. 

Perennial Prodigal Imperial Stout, 2 pack 16 oz. $15.99

ABV = 11.5%
Prodigal is an imperial oatmeal milk stout with a massive fudge and roast malt character. 
It’s a foundation for some of our favorite stouts, 
now here to stand on its own adorned with only a handful of cacao nibs and Madagascar vanilla beans to round out the edges.
