Buccella 2012 Cab Sauv!







2012 Buccella Cabernet Sauvignon...$165.99

What a glorious statement for Cabernet Sauvignon, Buccella’s 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has an opaque purple color, a beautiful nose of forest floor, white flowers, blueberry and black raspberry, along with a telltale cassis and subtle background oak. Full-bodied, rich and multi-dimensional, this is fabulous 2012 that’s just coming into its own. Look for this wine to drink well young, as it already is, and evolve for 20-25 years.

Rated 96/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

98 Point Kamen Kashmir







2012 Kamen Kashmir Cabernet Sauvignon...$213.99
The winery’s top lots were culled out for the 2012 Kashmir (100% Cabernet Sauvignon). Sadly, only six barrels were made of this quintessential North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon. Its inky/black/purple color is accompanied by a stunning perfume of charcoal, lead pencil shavings, blackberries and new oak. Full-bodied with beautiful purity and symmetry as well  as a multidimensional mouthfeel, this stupendous 2012 red wine can be drunk over the next 15-20 years.
Rated 98/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Benton's is back...


More just arrived today of 
Benton's Smoky Mountain Bacon...$11.99 /lb

This bacon is smoked the old fashioned way for two days. 



"Our hickory smoked country bacon is equally at home on a bacon, lettuce, and vine ripe tomato sandwich or on the breakfast table as it is wrapped around a premier cut of beef or a fish fillet. Hickory smoked in our smokehouse using an old-fashioned wood stove, each slice of our bacon has a distinctive full flavor that has attracted and maintained a broad spectrum of customers, from those looking for smoked bacon “the way grandpa made it” to gourmet chefs with the most distinguishing of tastes." -- Bentons

Their bacon has been featured in Gourmet Magazine, Saveur Magazine, and Southern Living Magazine.


Their bacon has been featured in Gourmet Magazine, Saveur Magazine
and here is an excerpt from Southern Living Magazine. "This is, hands down, the best bacon I've ever tasted....Benton's Smoky Mountain Hams come from a much closer source: Madisonville, Tennessee. You don't have to take my word for it though. Just ask the farmers and chefs. Some of the nation's top culinary stars make magic with Benton's hams. Local farmers bring their personal hocks to be cured by the five-man shop that competes with industry giants. The secret? They do things the slow way—using meat-curing practices thousands of years old. "Everything is done by hand," says Allan Benton, who speaks about curing ham with a passion that other men reserve for sports. Until recently, he kept his clients' addresses on yellowed sticky notes taped to the wall. "We're a hillbilly operation through and through," Allan says. And wonderfully so. The transformation from pork to perfection takes place in a smoke-stained cinder-block building on the side of a Tennessee byway. In a traditional process that's never rushed, whole hams get slathered with salt, sugar, and the family's secret spices; then they cure—for 7 to 14 months—on wooden racks. Out back, where the scent of smoking meat hangs thick in the air, Allan opens a sooty door to reveal the mysteries behind his bacon. As the fresh air clears out the little room, a tiny potbelly stove appears. "This is my smoke generator," Allan says. "I bought it for $50 from a cousin." Order now, because publicity has driven demand for Benton's products, especially the smoked bacon. Allan loves telling the story of a Vegas casino that paid hundreds of dollars for an emergency overnight shipment. But then, who knows better than a casino how to bring home the bacon?" -- Southern Living Magazine, November 2007

The Glenrothes

In stock at Forsyth now.
The Glenrothes "Triple Set"...$32.99 for  3 / 100 ml bottles
Includes one of each of these
  • The Glenrothes Bourbon Cask Reserve 100ml
  • The Glenrothes Sherry Cask Reserve  100ml
  • The Glenrothes Vintage Cask Reserve  100ml








The Glenrothes Bourbon Cask Reserve...$39.99
Formerly known as Alba Reserve, we have changed the name for transparency and simplicity of trade and consumer understanding. A certified Kosher expression it is matured exclusively in American oak ex-Bourbon casks.
The Glenrothes' normal wood policy uses a combination of Spanish and American oak, seasoned with sherry, bourbon and malt Scotch (known as refill). Of those only Bourbon is 100% Kosher.  For this expression Gordon Motion has used Glenrothes matured exclusively in American oak refill Bourbon casks. It therefore delivers coconut and vanilla in abundance, and is soft and mellow with a crème brulée flavour and feel.
Bourbon Cask Reserve was certified in March 2009-and annually thereafter-by Rabbi Padwa of the London Beth Din.




The Glenrothes 1995 Single Malt Scotch...$85.99
The Vintage 1995 was the first ever Vintage specifically laid in cask with the intention of, when mature, bottling as The Glenrothes.  With about 30% from first fill American Sherry oak delivering butterscotch: Spice and dried fruits from 1st fill Spanish Sherry oak and the rest from refill casks giving the characteristic Glenrothes balance and complexity of flavour. Arguably it is preferable post-dinner when conversation is in full flow.  It fulfils every anticipation of The Glenrothes: A "come-hither" nose filled with exotic spices is followed by a citrus and fruity richness coated in honeyed butterscotch. These flavours, and more, are all delivered on the palate culminating with a long, rich and satisfying, fruity spiciness



The Glenrothes 1995 Single Malt Scotch...$66.99
The Vintage 1998 is the next Core Vintage to follow the Vintage 1991 and 1994. It is the first of the vintages that we have bottled that was expressly laid down at origin to be bottled as Glenrothes on maturity and as such has a greater availability of stock than any of the previous bottlings.
This is also Gordon Motion's first bottling as Malt Master and he describes it as: "It's said that pictures speak a thousand words and this is like Carmen Miranda's hat in a bottle. Tropical fruits lead with pineapple and mango developing into sweet bananas, coconut and classic Glenrothes vanilla pods."

Alice & the Magician Cocktail scents


A powerful new way to add flavor and aromatics to cocktails
Each bottle is hand crafted by The Magician and represents a "scent memory" - an aromatic representation of a time, place, experience or idea. The pure natural botanicals are carefully sourced from all over the world and extracted with great care and precision to ensure they remain completely "true to nature". Smell is the only one of our senses directly linked to the memory and emotion centers of our brains. Alice & the Magician masterfully design the flavors to evoke the smell of both the common and uncommon. The delicate flavors are not meant to be stirred in your dink but rather misted on top where they will hover and transport you with every sip.


Each one has enough for 120 cocktails
Alice & the Magician Autumn Bonfire...$16.99
On a cold, fall evening the cackling bonfire, the crunch of colorful leaves underfoot and the smell of wood piles stacked high in preparation fill the atmosphere.
Alice & the Magician Citrus Blossom Harvest
Citrus Blossom Harvest combines a careful combination of citrus smells that capture fall in Spain, where the streets of Seville are swept by a strong smell of ripe bitter oranges, one of the most aromatic fruits in the world, hanging from the trees that line the streets.
Alice & the Magician Andalucia's Garden
Fresh, green garden cilantro with hints of coriander, lime and tomato leaf. Just like the smell wafting from Andalucia's garden on a sunny day.








Glencadam 'Origin 1825'




New from Glencadam
Glencadam 'Origin 1825' Single Malt Scotch...$42.99

ABV 40%

Pine Barrens Barrel Reserve Finished Gin



Pine Barrens Barrel Reserve Finished Gin...$35.99
Pine Barrens Barrel Reserve Botanical Dry Gin starts its journey as local estate grown Long Island Potatoes that are then triple distilled. The potato spirits are carefully pot distilled using our custom gin chamber which delicately infuses the 28 local and exotic botanicals.

The resulting Gin is then carefully finished in oak barrels that once held Pine Barrels American Single Malt. The Gin imparts delicious zesty flavors of tangerine, lemon meringue, caramel and nutmeg.

We proudly source our water at the protected Glacial Aquifer buried deep below Long Island (Deepwells) preserved beneath the Pine Barrens forested watershed.

Prairie Bomb! CHEESE!!!

We scored some more Bomb! Cheese!!





Press release from Prairie Artisan Ales!!

BOMB! CHEESE
Krebs, Oklahoma has a lot to offer, but we’re interested in two things in particular. Beer and cheese. When you put these two together, magical things happen.

With that being said, we are excited to announce a limited edition release brought to you from the mad geniuses behind Lovera’s award-winning cheeses and Prairie Artisan Ales. They took their Toma style cheese, a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese, and packed it full of the wonderment that is Bomb! Get ready to meet The Bomb! Toma. A lot of thought went into how to get their Toma cheese packed with that signature Bomb! flavor. Our spices were incorporated into the cheese itself, then the cheese wheels took a soak in Bomb! You’ll find our coffee, cacao nibs, vanilla bean, and chili peppers marbled throughout, with a wash of Bomb! on the rind. This is one heavy duty and delicious cheese! There’s something about the combination of the creamy Toma cheese with the distinctive flavors of Bomb!

You’ll be good to go if you just stop at getting some of this amazing cheese. It can hold its own on a plate, no doubt about that. But, if you’re looking to go up one level and invite a few friends over to show them your wonderful cheese find, we have a tip to really make them think twice about mocking your cheese and beer pairing abilities. While you’re out getting the fancy toothpicks to put in your Bomb! Toma, pick up some Prairie Standard. Really. We did tests. Grueling, scientific study, in a room full of our peers kind of tests. Ok, we drank and ate cheese, but we talked about important things like notes and our palates. And Prairie Standard with The Bomb! Toma was the winning combination of the crowd. We found other combinations that worked as well, but the balance of the slightly hoppy farmhouse ale with the Bomb! spice of the cheese created a perfect balance of taste bud push and pull. 



Jasper Hill back in stock


In stock now at Forsyth and Rock Hill
Jasper Hill Farm Moses Sleeper
from Greensboro, Vermont. 
We are big fans of Jasper Hill Farms and Moses Sleeper is an amazing cheese from them. If you like Fromage d'Affinois, take the next step and try Moses Sleeper. It is buttery like the Affinois, but it has so many more layers of complexity. Come in for a free taste while it lasts. This cheese begs for a glass of Champagne!!  Let the party begin!



Jasper Hill Farms - Willoughby
WILLOUGHBY is an original creation of Marisa Mauro’s Ploughgate Creamery, a Cellars collaborator that ceased production of the cheese after a creamery fire in 2011. With Marisa’s blessing we resurrect this pudgy little washed-rind and have continued to develop the recipe at Jasper Hill Creamery.

SENSORY NOTES - This succulent and buttery washed-rind cheese has aromas of peat, roasted beef and onions – a strong and complex front for the subtle milky, herbal, ripe-peach flavors within. Willoughby has a thin, tender, rosy-orange rind, which adds earthy dimension to the texture and flavors of the gooey interior.



Jasper Hill Farms - Harbison
HARBISON is named for Anne Harbison, affectionately known as the grandmother of Greensboro. Along with breathtaking views, traditions and people are part of what makes Vermont's working landscape special; we're proud to honor Ms. Harbison's contribution with this cheese.
SENSORY NOTES - Harbison is a soft-ripened cheese with a rustic, bloomy rind. Young cheeses are wrapped in strips of spruce cambium, the tree's inner bark layer, harvested from the woodlands of Jasper Hill. The spoonable texture begins to develop in our vaults, though the paste continues to soften on the way to market. Harbison is woodsy and sweet, balanced with lemon, mustard, and vegetal flavors.
PAIRING AND SERVICE - Harbison is a great excuse to gather a few friends and scoop into a decadent treat. When a bit younger, the bark can be peeled away for sliced portioning. If the bark has fused with a more loosened paste, then the best approach is to leave the bark intact and spoon out portions from the top. Pair with oaked white wine, or barrel-aged sour beer. Fruit mostarda and crusty bread make nice accompaniments.

Pumpkin flavored Gouda


Come in for a taste at Forsyth and Rock Hill right now.
Artikaas Pumpkin Gouda
The flavors of Autumn are bountiful in the one-of-a-king cheese from Dutch Cheese Makers.  Imported from Holland, our Pumpkin Gouda is a young cheese made with real pumpkin seeds, ground ginger and a hint of garlic.  The texture is smooth and creamy and the flavor is delightfully mild and savory.

Parce Colombian Rum



Parce was founded by three brothers who simply put, were quite taken with Colombia. Inspired by its beauty and the warmth and hospitality of its people, they wanted to share the time-honored tradition of celebrating quality rum with others. The brothers found the perfect partners in a father-and-son duo of master blenders from Bogota. Arthur and Brojen Fernandes Domecq have a combined history of more than 50 years working with fine rum. The Domecq family boasts nearly three centuries of crafting traditional wine, sherry and brandy in the south of Spain. Brojen's grandfather, Jose Ignacio Domecq, was known in the industry as "La Nariz" (the nose) for his expertise in sniffing and blending. La Nariz's legacy lives on in Colombia with Brojen and Arthur's innate understanding of rum derived from pure ingredients, then carefully aged.

In Colombia, "parce" is casual for "good friend." Which is, of course, why we hope you enjoy this rum casually with good friends.







Parce Colombian Rum 8 Year Old....$36.99
Parce Colombian Rum 12 Year Old....$49.99
100% REAL AGED
Every drop of rum in our bottle of 8-year has been aged for eight years. Every drop in our 12-year has been aged for a dozen years. Simply put, it’s true to what the label says.

Kilchoman Islay Sanaig Single Malt Scotch...$69.99
Sanaig, a small rocky inlet North West of the distillery is the name given to this continuously available release.

Zepaltas Winery - do not miss these







We are proud to introduce Zepaltas wines to Missouri!
Ryan Zepaltas, has been the assistant winemaker at St. Louis favorite Siduri for the past 16 years, and before that spent time at Villa Maria in New Zealand, and La Crema! 
The production is so small on these wines that outside of California, you only find them in New York and now The Wine and Cheese Place in St. Louis!

Kole, our wine buyer at our Rock Hill Location,  met Ryan Zepaltas in Oregon while working with Siduri, leading up to The Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Auction. While there,  Kole was treated to a fabulous dinner at David Adelsheim of Adelsheim Vineyards house, featuring a host of famous Pinot producers. Basically, everyone brought miscellaneous bottles of Pinot Noir to share, Ryan brought Siduri, but there was one random unmarked bottle of Chardonnay on the table. Everyone unanimously agreed this was the best bottle of the night. Turns out this was Zepaltas Chardonnay, left in an unlabeled bottle, so that he could get unbiased reviews. The next day Kole found Ryan at the auction and said, How do we get your wines back to St. Louis?  After months of paperwork - it is finally here.


We are introducing them at stunning prices - check out the wines.  They are in stock now.
We were able to get 14 cases of each.   For some of the wines, that is 10% of the total production!  These are small production


2014 Zepaltas Cabernet Franc Pickberry...$22.99
Winery Price $29, 
(nobody else has this wine on Wine-Searcher)
Only 145 cases produced
Ravenswood Winery made big scoring Bordeaux Blends from the famous Pickberry Vineyard.
"Now that we were comfortable with the slow ripening nature of Cab Franc, we knew that all we needed was patience and good weather. We lucked out and the fruit ripened to exactly the point where we wanted it.   On the nose we get lavender, strawberry, anise and black pepper. On the palate flavors of blueberry, raspberry and of course the hallmark of Cabernet Franc, bell pepper. The 2014 is slightly more fruit driven than the 2013. It is bright and plush up front and finishes with medium grit tannins. This wine will need a year of cellaring to get to its sweet spot, so decanting will be necessary for early drinking. " - Winery
Aged 14 months in 17% new French Oak 

2013 Zepaltas Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast...$24.99
Winery pice $32 (nobody else has this wine on Wine-Searcher)
235 cases produced
The Sonoma Coast bottling is the more elegant sibling to our deeper Russian River Valley. It requires longer aging in barrels because of its higher acidity. The extra time in barrel helps soften the palate on the wine. A blend of barrels from five vineyards: Suacci, La Cruz, W.E. Bottoms, Devoto and Marshall Ranch. Each site contributes something different to make this multi-layered, complex wine. On the nose we get dried herbs, flowers, baking spices & raspberries. This wine has vibrant energetic palate, light tannins, and flavors of the Sonoma Coast (pomegranate, cherry, and dried herbs.)
Aged in 30% New French oak // 14 months in barrel

2013 Zepaltas Suacci Vineyard Pinot Noir...$35.99 
Lowest price on Wine searcher - $47.94
only 147 cases produced
An ethereally lithe and elegant wine, the aromatic profile and exuberance on the palate suggest savory and spicy specks of pomegranate, cranberry and even rhubarb. It's fresh, structured and well-integrated, with a bite of bark and clove on the rounded finish.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Enthusiast
