The Balvenie 14 Year Old Week of Peat Single Malt

The Balvenie 14 Year Old Week of Peat Single Malt...$89.99
Eager to experiment with The Balvenie profile using what he had learnt from a recent trip to Islay, distillery manager Ian Millar ordered a batch of Speyside peat for the kiln. For a week a year, The Balvenie distills a batch of peated malt, resulting in a whisky rich in honey, vanilla and citrus notes with an extra layer of delicate smokiness.

St. George Baller Single Malt Whiskey

1 per person
St. George Baller Single Malt Whiskey....$64.99
THE SPIRIT:  “A California take on the Japanese spin on Scotch whisky.” So says master distiller Lance Winters of this unique and inspired spirit, which was created with Japanese-style whiskey highballs in mind (hence the name Baller).

THE PROCESS:  We start with 100% American barley (predominately two-row pale malted barley, the remainder is lightly roasted).  After distillation in our eau de vie pot stills, the whiskey is aged in used bourbon casks and French oak wine casks, as well as filtered through maple charcoal.  We then finish the whiskey in casks that had held house-made umeshu(a Japanese style of plum liqueur we made entirely from California-grown ume fruit).

THE EXPERIENCE:   Crisp and dry, with a touch of malt sweetness. The smoky finish lingers and builds with each sip.  In addition to using in Japanese-style whiskey highballs, we also recommend Baller in a Boulevardier, or in place of Scotch whisky in a Bobby Burns or Rob Roy.

Distiller Lance Winters did the art direction for the label, which re-imagines the legend of St. George as a samurai. The original watercolor on the front label was by Oakland artist Sylvia Solochek Walters, done to emulate woodcut. The calligraphy was done by Eri Takase of Takase Studios.

The Pogues Irish Whiskey

The Pogues Irish Whiskey....$28.99
The Original Irish Whiskey of the Legendary Band.

This whiskey is a measure of who we are, made with the sole intention of spreading that same raucous joy.
If you’re drinking you’re welcome, pull up a seat and pour.
If not, póg mo thóin.
The Whiskey

The Pogues Irish Whiskey is a unique blend of 50% 10-year single malt Irish whiskey aged in sherry oak casks and seven year old single malt Irish whiskey aged in bourbon oak casks and 50% four year Irish grain whiskey aged in bourbon oak casks. The liquid has an aroma of malts and cracked nuts, with a sweet taste and a smooth, intense flavour. Notably, West Cork is Ireland’s only whiskey producer to malt its own barley, enabling exceptional precision and control over flavour profile. It is distilled using ingredients indigenous to Ireland, including locally grown grain and spring water from the idyllic River Ilen. It’s carefully crafted in small batches in handmade copper stills at West Cork’s distillery in Skibbereen, the cultural home of Irish whiskey.
The Distillers

Our whiskey is made by West Cork Distillers, one of Ireland’s last independent distilleries. From humble beginnings and the coming together of a Master Blender and his two fisherman friends it now has become a global success, built on friendship and a passion for innovation and quality. The Distillery is based in Skibbereen in the heart of West Cork, the cultural home of Irish Whiskey.
I am going where streams of whisky are flowing if you bottle that, they said, so we did.
What you make of it’s your own lookout.

Lagunita's The Waldos' Special Ale

The dankest and hoppiest beer ever brewed at Lagunitas

Back in stock now at Forsyth!
Lagunita's The Waldos' Special Ale...$11.99 / 6 pack
In 1971, the Waldos met one afteroon at 4:20 in the front courtyard of their school near the statue of Louis Pasteur. They set out in a '66 Impala armed with a "treasure map" on a journey to find a secret garden near Point Reyes. They met there at the same time every day and continued their quest. They never found the secret garden....But they keep lookin'. The dankest and hoppiest beer ever brewed at Lagunitas was made with help of the Waldos for all treasure hunters.
Good with Beer-battered Twinkies Con Queso…you can find out why if you google 'Waldo 420'

Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet

Rare 3 liter from Silver Oak!

In a very nice wood box!

2013 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet...$399.99 / 3 liter
The 2013 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is garnet in color with a ruby red rim, it has an alluring nose of blackberry bramble, baking spices, and black olive. Aromas of vanilla, cassis, and sage fill the glass, revealing the influence of American oak barrel aging. On the palate, notes of raspberry are complemented with lingering acidity and a finish of dusty, silky tannins. Given proper cellaring, this wine will provide drinking pleasure through 2036.

3 liter of Foley Cab!

1 giant 3 liter bottle in stock at Forsyth now!

2012 Robert Foley Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley....$556.99 / 3 liter
Engraved bottle and autographed by Bob Foley!

The delicious, fruit-forward, dense purple-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits plenty of roasted espresso notes intermixed with cassis, chocolate and toasty oak. Opulent, full-bodied and unctuously textured, it should continue to drink well for 10-12 years.
Rated 95/100 Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
Rated 96/100 James Suckling

2016 Dominus Proprietary Red Wine - MAGNUM bottles


2016 Dominus Proprietary Red Wine...$650.00 / 1.5 liter
Magnum bottle
A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 8% Cabernet Franc aged in 40% new oak, the 2016 Proprietary Red Wine is deep purple-black in color and quite reticent at this youthful stage to begin, offering up subtle notions of potpourri, Indian spices, cigar box and iron ore over a core of crushed blackberries and black cherries with intermittent wafts of black and red currants, new leather and smoked meats. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a densely packed mid-palate and oodles of freshness framed by very ripe, finely grained tannins and laced with compelling earthy accents. It offers incredible vibrancy with tons of black and red fruit sparkle in the mid-palate leading to a provocative mineral element on the very long finish. If I could give more than 100 for this one, I would.

Glenlivet 25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch

On sale for Father's Day!!

Glenlivet 25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch...$299.99
Using some of the rarest of our whiskies, all of which have been aged for at least 25 years, this is a batch-produced whisky finished in ex-sherry butts. Our team of experts individually select each cask and monitor the whisky in its finishing process to make sure the Oloroso-soaked wood adds the subtlest sherry tones to an intense, silky and elegant whisky. This molten amber liquid is nearly as splendid to hold in your hand as it is to drink. Afterwards, the finish is incredibly long, rich and balanced. But it’s the nose on the 25 Year Old that really drives whisky-lovers to distraction – with scents of bittersweet dark chocolate and plump, sweet sultana. This opulent whisky, the oldest expression in The Glenlivet’s core range, is a sublime choice to mark special occasions.

Cheese Features!

We are featuring Red Dragon and Drunken Goat this weekend.

Come in and taste these two cheeses at all four locations.
June 13th and 14th.

Red Dragon Cheddar
Red Dragon is Cheddar cheese from Wales made with Welsh brown ale and wholegrain mustard seeds and coated with bright red wax. It takes its name from the dragon symbol on the Welsh flag. The moist yet firm Red Dragon is aged for 3 months and made from pasteurized cow's milk. The mustard seeds give it a unique texture and an amazing buttery and spicy flavor. Along with the subtle sharpness of mustard seeds, the flavor of Red Dragon is also reminiscent of the mild, sharp taste of the Welsh ale and traditional cheddar.
Serve Red Dragon with dark ale or try a strong red wine. It is an excellent table cheese that melts well on a sandwich.

Drunken Goat
What is there not to love when two of your favorite things, wine and cheese, are combined into one delicious bite? Drunken Goat cheese (Murcia Al Vino) is a crowd-friendly, always popular, goat cheese from Spain, where you might see it called queso de cabra al vino. The purple rind comes from bathing in red wine, which also gives the cheese a slightly fruity flavor. The flavor is also sharp and tangy, but in a very mellow, "I want everyone to like me" sort of way. For those who don't like goat cheese, Drunken Goat is very much un-goaty.

2017 Bench Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County
2017 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon
2016 Purlieu Le Pich Cabernet Sauvignon

This is an impressive Cabernet for $20.
This one is a step above the 2016 vintage!

The quality was outstanding...They showed the vintage’s high level of be of excellent overall quality..." - The Wine Enthusiast on 2017 Sonoma Wines

2017 Bench Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County...$19.99
Suggested retail is $24
Deep purple in color and aromatically expressive with ripe, black plum currant coulis and minerally graphite. The structure is firm with soft, elegant tannins and mouth-watering acidity. Flavors of black forest fruit and earth, dark cocoa, mint and anise are meld together on the finish. Bench Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced exclusively from benchland vineyards in Sonoma County, where valley floor transitions to foothills. I prefer these vineyard sites as they produce concentrated and intense fruit that results in an elegantly balanced wine with depth, beauty and complexity.

 Rock star winemaker Julien Fayard was born in Provence, and cut his teeth at Chateau Lafite Rothschild and Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte. Since moving to Napa in 2006, he has worked alongside Philippe Melka on numerous projects (think Lail, Dalle Valle, Gemstone) and made legions of Cabernet-centric fans.
2016 Purlieu Le Pich Cabernet Sauvignon...$49.98
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Pich features very pretty notes of crushed blueberries, blackberries and chocolate-covered cherries with hints of violets and cedar chest plus a waft of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, packed with vibrant black fruits and plushly textured, this buxom beauty is ready for biz, finishing satisfyingly long and spicy.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Advocate

2017 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon....$75.98

Caymus has a signature style that is dark in color, with rich fruit and ripe, velvety tannins – as approachable in youth as in maturity. We farm Cabernet grapes in eight of Napa’s 16 sub-appellations, with diversification enabling us to make the best possible wine in a given year. Our Cabernet offers layered, lush aromas and flavors, including cocoa, cassis and ripe dark berries.

Taste these two Bourbons!

Devils River Bourbon Whiskey
Devils River Bourbon Barrel Strength

Small Batch Texas Whiskey
Devils River Bourbon captures the spirit of the waters it draws from. The first sip is bold, followed by an oak, honey and caramel medley. Our bourbon finishes smooth with a warm, sweet flavor—just a reminder that there’s a little Devil inside all of us.

75% Corn
21% Rye
4% Barley
Devils River Bourbon Barrel Strength
Devils River Bourbon Barrel Strength is a 117-proof whiskey. We are unapologetically proud of our bold flavor and recognize it is not for the faint of heart. Devils River Bourbon Barrel Strength is a high rye bourbon and sources it’s water the same way Devils River Whiskey does.

2016 Saldo The Prisoner Wine Company...$24.99
Compare $29.97 at Total Wine and More
Saldo doesn’t fit in, but that doesn’t matter. When you’re from “here and there” (that’s what Saldo means in Latin), you don’t need to form to one, single place. That’s the funny thing about expectations—they’re made to be broken.
Gorgeous ripe, jammy, berry flavors dominate this full-bodied, smooth-textured wine. It smells like blackberries and black cherries, tastes so rich it's almost sweet, and fills the mouth from cheek to cheek with a chocolate-cherry flavor that lingers on the finish.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Enthusiast

Fruit for the Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet is primarily sourced from two of the valley’s most renowned sub-appellations: Oakville, located on a well-drained alluvial bench, and Stag’s Leap district, coming from our Wappo Hill Vineyard. You won't find a better Cabernet under $25
2015 Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon....$23.99
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a fabulous entry-level wine from Mondavi, not to mention one of the very best values readers will find in Napa Valley. Rich, succulent and inviting, the Napa Valley Cabernet captures the best qualities of the year in a forward, voluptuous style that make it impossible to resist young. Succulent dark cherry, plum, new leather and dark spice notes wrap around the juicy finish. This is an unreal level of quality for a wine at this price point
