The Wines!!
Textbook Sauvignon Blanc $20.99

Showcases a classic Napa Valley style – bold and textured, albeit with a bit more brightness, balanced acidity and alcohol and “lift”. Delicious aromatics with honeysuckle, Asian pear, and wild thyme accents to the crisp, mouthwatering laser beam of Meyer lemon and wet hay. Finishes bright, balanced and crisp.

Clay Shannon Chardonnay $23.99

91 Points Wine Enthusiast!  
"This nicely polished and full-bodied wine tastes ripe but has lively acidity to keep it balanced. Tangy citrus notes blend with subtle fig and minerals."  Winemaker's notes - Aromas of white peach and Bartlett pears balance the intriguing flavors of citrus, toasted vanilla and Creme Brulee'.

Brewer-Clifton Pinot Noir, Santa Rita Hills $39.99

This Pinot Noir, from the  Santa Rita Hills, is a very good introduction to the Brewer-Clifton style, wafting from the glass with a nose of ripe cherries, candied red fruit, spice and dried herbs that's more fruit-driven than this bottling often is straight out of the gates. On the palate, the wine is supple, saline and medium-bodied, with nice energy and a crunchy core of fruit. This should drink well for the better part of a decade.

Clay Shannon Cabernet Sauvignon $27.99
From the hillsides of Napa and Lake counties, this Cabernet has the best of both counties. Bright fruit, spice, and texture come from the high elevations of Lake County and dark fruits, old-world characters and dried herbs come from the low elevations of Napa County. The merriment of the two create tobacco, cherry, and cassis aromas. On the palate, we get dried fruits, old world spice, integrated oak, notes of cedar and a lingering finish. 
Blend: 59% Napa County, 41% Lake County.

The Beers!!
Benedoktiner FestBier, 4 pack 16 oz. $8.99

5.8% ABV
This festbier pours a clear, deep gold color with a steady flavor of carbonation bubbles along with one finger of soapy white head. Strong aroma for an Oktoberfest beer, with lots of malt. The taste is dominated by malt, with corn and an unmistakable sweetness. Light hops, but we get a bit of grassy and floral notes. Medium body, with a slick mouthfeel. Finish is smooth and refreshing, with more malt sweetness.  

Schlafly Pumpkin Ale, St. Louis, 6 pack 12 oz. $15.99

ABV = 8%
Hailed as one of the best beers of its kind, it’s the reason why fall is your favorite season. Schlafly’s Special Release Pumpkin Ale is well-balanced from start to finish, with notes of caramel and ginger throughout. Fermented in pounds of fresh pumpkin squash and a brewer’s wort and sugar mix before being filtered through a spiced infusion of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, it turns out exactly how it is inteded to taste: like a slice of pie in a bottle.
