100 points Beer Advocate!!
10.2% ABV

"Strong chocolate, subtly sweet with light bitterness & strong coffee, some oatmeal too.
There is some espresso like flavors & lots of cocoa with roasted malts & darker fruits, sugar & vanilla.
Complex & great tasting. Full bodied & smooth, the alcohol content is almost completely hidden
with only the slightly warming feel giving an indication as to the strength of this one.
Strong sweetness with the occasional bit of bitterness; frighteningly easy to drink too."

The Wines!!
Daou Sauvignon Blanc $18.99

92 Points Wine Enthusiast!  
"The first vintage of Sauvignon Blanc from this producer is a complex and lively white wine to balance their rich red portfolio. Aromas of jalapeño, green herbs and wet cement meet with nectarine on the nose, while the zesty palate combines bell pepper, lime peel, peach and tropical fruit."  Winemaker's notes - This lovely, bright and cheery Sauvignon Blanc proffers tantalizing aromas of grapefruit, pineapple and gooseberry, with hints of quince. Floral notes of lemongrass and acacia are balanced with lychee and wet stone. Classily structured and elegantly styled, a veritable explosion of crisp and juicy fruit flavors burst upon the palate. Lemon chiffon, key lime pie and kiwi are accented with green apple, white nectarine and pineapple. Decisively refreshing, this wine finishes lean and clean with long lingering notes of dragon fruit, citrus and passion fruit. 

Kathryn Hall "Walt" Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast $39.99
92 Points Wine Enthusiast! 
"Demure and focused, this wine is opulently textured in creamy vanilla and pear.
A thread of pineapple weaves through the midpalate, nuanced in oak and balanced in weight.
Throughout, an effusive nose of apple and orange blossom permeate."

Highlands Forty-One Red Blend, Paso Robles $17.99
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast! 
This is a rather meaty, substantial wine for a fair price.
Aromas of boysenberry, elderberry, roast beef and violet lead into a thick palate of cassis, more violet and pleasant mocha touches.

Terra D'Oro Zinfandel, Amador County $18.99
This savory Zinfandel displays vibrant aromas of rich, spicy clove and big, generous fruit with hints of vanilla that entice the nose.
An abundance of plums and flavors of dense, juicy blackberries excites the senses with a round mouthfeel of well-integrated tannins on the finish.
This wine is rich and powerful, and incredibly well-balanced.
The Terra d’Oro Amador Zinfandel is enjoyable on its own, and especially complements anything barbecued.

Roth Merlot, Sonoma $20.99
This soft, round Merlot blends in small amounts of Malbec and Syrah to offer a powerful, full-bodied frame.
It's lengthy on the palate in tart red fruit, integrated oak and fresh acidity.
