The Wines!!
Alphonse Mellot "La Moussiere" Sancerre Blanc $37.99

Very fine gold color with a green sheen. Its nose has a flowery fruity bouquet. Being pure and honest it is a seducer from the outset. Flowers flit around, trees bend down to give their most beautiful fruits to us and the air we breathe is so sweet in this garden full of sweetness that it is intoxicating. Lively, supple and welcoming taste. Predominantly honest in a welcoming balance, it reflects a pretty grape, a fine harvest in the singing and laughter of the men and women pickers. It tells us of work well done in the divine order and Nature's kindness. It is fair, and all one expected and to cap it all there is happiness there. 
Pairs well with fish tartare, mussels "à la Charentaise", pike with white butter sauce, chanterelle mushroom omelette, baked Norway lobsters, trout meunière, pike in saffron, braised ham with white sauce, tripe cooked the Caen way, Chavignol goatsmilk cheeses, and puff pastries.

Sbragia Gamble Ranch Chardonnay, Napa $34.99

Aromas of poached pear, vanilla and ripe apples practically jump out of the glass. Meyer lemon curd and butterscotch appear underneath the primary scents with an interesting rocky minerality that helps to balance the richness and creaminess of this wine created by full malolactic fermentation and 18 months of barrel aging. 

Ecard Bourgogne Rouge $19.99

A supple and fresh Pinot Noir with a distinct fruity character showing the typicity of the terroir
- cherry, blackcurrant and raspberry aromas. Discreet tannins gives roundness and elegance to the wine.

Ancient Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles $19.99

Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 79%, Merlot 8%, Petite Sirah 8%, Petit Verdot 3%, Cabernet Franc 2%
This cabernet sauvignon presents vivid varietal aromas of luscious black fruits with notes of cedar, pencil shaving and black olive. 
A deep, layered palate unfolds with heady flavors of black currant, blackberry and blueberry with suggestions of cherry, mint, vanilla, and toasted oak. Plump tannins and balanced acidity add length and structure to a richly integrated finish. 
Enjoy with richly textured dishes, including grilled pork chops, veal roast with mushrooms, stuffed eggplant, filet mignon with black olive sauce and Cabernet-braised short ribs.

The Beers!!
Key Brewing "Speedwobbles" Sessions IPA 6 pack 16 oz. $11.99

ABV = 4.6%
This is the first beer in a series of customized batches. The Bustin Boards crew and the Key brewers dropped in a gnarly combo of Amarillo, Mosaic, Simcoe, and Chinook to land this satisfying IPA that you can ride with all day. 

Sloop Techno Viking IPA 4 pack 16 oz. $17.99

ABV = 6%
Brewed with milk sugar, flaked wheat, and malted wheat for aromas of green melon and mango, flavor notes of orange sherbet and grapefruit, a smooth, creamy mouthfeel, and a big, bold, hoppy finish.
