REVIEW FROM HENRY PREISS, CREATOR OF A.H. HIRSCH RESERVE, 16 YEAR OLD
“As the prior brand owner of A.H. Hirsch Bourbon a legendary American Bourbon, our friends at Jos. A. Magnus have created a whisky to behold and enjoy in the same way as A.H. Hirsch. Not only is the quality one of the best Bourbons I have sampled in recent times but the packaging is sure to make this special limited release an instant collectible. My only hope is that a bottle is reserved for myself before this sells out.”

Joseph Magnus Murray Hill Club....$84.99
Blend of 18 Year Old, 11 year old and 9 Year Old
Murray Hill Club is the historic Magnus flagship brand, and is a blended bourbon whiskey - Magnus Master Blender Nancy Fraley is to be commended for her work to get the balance just right - the Murray Hill Club a blend of 18-year bourbon, 11-year bourbon, and a bit of 9 year-old light whiskey to round out the flavor -- it is truly an exceptional and unique product.

Richard Wolf, Magnus Dream Team member and former GM and VP of Buffalo Trace had the following notes upon tasting a sample of the finished product: "Nice amber to golden color, clear, clean. Fantastic, ‘old’ whiskey nose - smells like Warehouse C at Buffalo Trace (one of my favorite places to hang out)! Notes of wood, char, vanilla, dried fruit. Taste delivers on promise of nose, nicely balanced, lots of black pepper forms at mid palate and lingers, Finish, long and warm. Overall, quite lovely."

Henry Preiss, creator of A.H. Hirsch Reserve 16 had the following notes: Tasting Murray Hill was an adventure in whisky made in a fashion of an era gone buy. Rich notes of vanilla and layers of dried fruit make for an most enjoyable whisky.

Magnus Master Blender Nancy Fraley shared: The 21st century Murray Hill Club whiskey is made as a nod to the ancestral art of our Magnus blending fore bearers by carefully selecting, blending, and marrying mature whiskeys from 9 to 18 years old to give it complexity, elegance, and finesse. The whiskey has notes of honey, toffee, dark dried fruit, orange citrus, and brown baking spice, with a long, warm finish.

Stone Give me IPA or Give Me Death




Stone Give me IPA or Give Me Death...$8.49 / 22oz

An imperial tribute to Richmond & the rise of craft beer independence an IPA brewed with raspberries & blackberries from the Commonwealth of Virginia
Collaborators
Ardent Craft Ales, Richmond, VA
Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, Richmond, VA
His excellency, Terry Mcauliffe, Virginia Governor
Dtone Brewing, Richmond, VA

Just as Patrick Henry once stood addressing the city of Richmond in 1775 to spur resistance against the tyrannical British Empire, 20 years ago we were stirred to join the cry for resistance against the tyrannical oppression of industrial beer. And now, the opening of our Richmond brewery is yet another shot in the salvo that has been fired on behalf of American brewing independence. If we wish to brew free, if we mean to retain our identity and preserve the privilege of access to independent craft beer, we must recognize it is a group effort. We do not stand alone. And so, on our new brewing grounds, we gathered with fellow craft breweries and “His Excellency,” Governor McAuliffe, to join together in force. A group cry of freedom & independence! Consider this aggressively hopped imperial IPA, jam-packed with Virginia raspberries and blackberries, a testament to our passion and unwillingness to settle or sell out! We think Patrick Henry would be proud, and hope you will be too.

Small production Washington Wines





2010 Seven Bridges Echo West Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon...$48.99
Only 79 cases made
We sourced our first Cab fruit from Echo West vineyard in 2010 and it was possibly the best wine we’ve ever made--winery


2011 Seven Bridges Merlot Golden Ridge Vineyard...$27.99
Walla Walla Valley
The Golden Ridge estate vineyard is known for growing quality grapes, with a location that has a unique microclimate due to elevation, slope, sun orientation and close proximity to the Blue Mountains. Elevation ranges from 1260 feet to 1350 above sea level, with a south-facing slope which maximizes soil drainage and sun exposure for the ripening grape clusters. The proximity to the Blue Mountains creates a rapid temperature drop at night of between 25-40 degrees from the daytime highs, which results in incredible flavor, dark color, and excellent acid retention in the grapes.

Sleight of Hand Spellbinder Red


2014 Sleight of Hand Spellbinder Red...$21.99
A blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc, the 2014 The Spell Binder has lots of leafy herbs, olive, earth and black currant characteristics in a plump, medium to full-bodied, charming, even sexy style. It should drink nicely for 5-6 years, probably longer.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate

Sheridan Wines




2010 Sheridan Block 1 Cabernet Sauvignon....$119.99
The incredible 2010 Block 1 comes from estate vineyards and is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 28 months in French oak. Massively concentrated, with a slightly backwards, brooding profile, it offers up an ultra-rich, meaty bouquet of smoked black currants, sage brush, mint, dry-aged beef and brown spice that gives way to a full-bodied, muscular 2010 that has a serious amount of fruit and texture that’s cut by juicy, lively acidity and ripe tannin. Disjointed right on opening, it improved beautifully over the evening (and consecutive days) and should be decanted for an hour or more if drinking anytime soon. It’s a unique, thrilling effort that will benefit from short-term cellaring and drink well for 15-20 years. Drink 2016-2030. 
Rated 98/100 The Wine Advocate


2011 Sheridan Boss Block Cabernet Franc...$47.99

A Cabernet Franc dominated release, the 2011 Boss Block spent 25 months in 50% new and 50% one-year-old French oak barrels. Due to vintage conditions, Scott opted to use less toast on the barrels for this cuvee. Coming from tiny yields, it gives up a rich, medium to full-bodied and approachable style to go with notions of chocolaty dark fruits, spice, dried flowers and sweet oak. Supple and up-front, with a soft mid-palate, it nevertheless is beautifully balanced and will evolve gracefully for upward of a decade.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Advocate

Sparkman from Washington



2013 Sparkman Wilderness Columbia Red...$24.99
This wine is mostly Syrah (58%), Grenache (18%) and Petite Sirah, with small amounts of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Cao and Tinta Madeira rounding it out. It brings aromas of dried herb, earth and blue and black fruit that are followed by palate-coating blue-fruit flavors, speckled with barrel spices, showing vibrant acidity.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Enthusiast

2012 Sparkman Rainmaker Cabernet Sauvignon...$59.99
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Rainmaker, which incorporates 9% Malbec, saw just one racking during its 22 months stint in 72% new barrels. Coming all from the Olsen Vineyard and harvest mostly toward the end of October, it offers lively, fresh, yet full-bodied, aromas and flavors of blackcurrants, charcoal, graphite and smoked herbs. Balanced, elegant and classically styled, with notable, yet integrated acidity and fine tannin, give it a few years and enjoy over the following 10-15 years.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate

Quilceda Creek CVR Columbia Red Wine




2013 Quilceda Creek CVR Columbia Red Wine...$66.99
Always a terrific value, the 2013 Cvr Columbia Valley Red Wine is a medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy 2013 that has tons of plums, licorice, lead pencil shavings and spice to go with a rounded texture, ripe tannin and a great finish. Drink it over the coming decade.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate

Virtue Cider Michigan Harvest Semi Dry



Virtue Cider Michigan Harvest Semi Dry...$8.99 / 4pk
Our tart and crisp semi-dry cider is made from all sorts of Michigan-grown apples, fermented deep in our cool cellar and aged in French oak, then blended with this year's fresh-pressed juice. Michigan Harvest offers the scent of the orchard, a hint of oak, and a touch of sweetness.

The Michigan Harvest of apples starts in late summer, with the sun still bright and the leaves green. As autumn turns cool, trees turn brilliant orange, yellow, and red; and so do the apples. We use all sorts of Michigan apples grown on local family farms. The blend of these heirloom apples creates a complexity of flavor impossible to achieve with just a few varieties.

TASTING NOTES:
Michigan Harvest is crisp and tart, starting with the scent of the orchard, a hint of oak, and finishing with a touch of sweetness.

FOOD PAIRING:
This cider celebrates apple harvest as well as the autumn's hearty cuisine. Try pairing with roast pig, aged cheddar, or traditional Thanksgiving fare.
