The Wines!!
Walnut Block Sauvignon Blanc $15.99
The belief that the vineyard is the key to a great wine is at the core of Walnut Block. Labor intensive, organic vineyard methods produce consistent, exceptional fruit quality; the use of traditional wine making techniques and attention to preserving delicate flavors & aromas. Among the vines stands the region’s oldest walnut tree, and to pay homage, the Collectibles label depicts an adaptation of the 1898 Kiwi New Zealand stamp. Both the planting of the tree and the release of the stamp occurred over 100 years ago and celebrate the unique Kiwi history and roots of Walnut Block.

Margerum White Blend $25.99
Editor's Choice Wine Enthusiast
M5 White is a white Rhône-style blend similar to Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc. M is for Margerum, 5 is for five grapes that make up the blend. It is rich with complex flavors and a long finish. Colors of straw and golden hues with a viscosity that clings to the glass as it is swirled. M5 White has a full, round and pleasing palate with ample acidity to balance the richness. This is a wine that will continue to evolve with time in bottle. 

A unique blend of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier and Picpoul Blanc
Aromas of apricots, white florals, sweet honey with hints of brioche toast and tropical fruits.
Flavors of apple and a touch of peach nectar engage with the bright acidity.
Aged in mostly neutral French oak barrels and puncheons.

Sexual Chocolate Red Blend $27.99
The blend of unique varietals offers an intense flavor profile packed with ripe dark fruit and exotic spices, finishing with a lingering soft silky texture. Syrah is the star of the show, delivering a smoky, ripe, dark cherry profile.
Merlot offers a freshness to the intensity and the spicy Zinfandel lends to the lasting finish.

The Dude Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley $34.99
This Pinot Noir possesses deep aromas of wild strawberries and ripe raspberries
accentuated with exotic notes of sandalwood and rose petal.
Rich and luscious palate it is focused with layers of ripe red fruits, fresh forest floor
and fine-grained tannins that linger through the finish.
Only 600 cases were produced.

Thread Feathers Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville $54.99
This wine offers full-bodied intensity within a classic framework of red and black currant, cherry and cassis.
Robustly built in tannin and well-integrated oak, it has earthy elements of cedar, sage and graphite,
with a lasting note of mocha.

Delirium Noel, 4 pack 11 oz. $28.99
ABV = 10%

Brewed only for the Christmas and New Year. Its appearance is a superb warm copper to red color, recalling "Nocturnum" except in its taste. It hides its subtlety by multiple levels of flavor and should be approached with confidence, with a tinge typical Christmas, sauced with a sweet touch, then bitterness.
