The Rigor Mortis are complex beers designed and brewed with patience and care in the tradition of the great Belgian Abbey beers.

An imperial pint from the bourbon trail, Schlafly Barrel-aged Barleywine assembles the heft of a British stout and the unmistakable flavor of a Kentucky bourbon.

Palazzo Masters Blend Left Bank Cuvee




Scott Palazzo has done it again, his Left Bank Cuvee is an absolute steal. The 2015 vintage hooked us and this 2016 is even better. This wine is open for business, bright fruit, round tannins and an incredible finish.


2016 Palazzo Masters Blend Left Bank Cuvee $39.98*
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Left Bank Master Blend is blended of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it features intense notions of wild blueberries, raspberry preserves, cassis and cherry cordial with touches of molten chocolate, menthol, licorice and cedar chest. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers loads of black and red fruit layers in the mouth with great freshness and a soft, rounded texture, finishing long.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Advocate

*we are $10/btl cheaper than the lowest price on wine-searcher.

Alban North Pinot Noir




2013 North (Alban) Edna Valley Pinot Noir...$72.99
Another sensational wine released under the North label, there are 200 cases of the 2013 Pinot Noir and, like the Chardonnay, it had just been bottled a little over a week prior to my visit. A rich, full-flavored beauty that doesn't put a foot wrong and still offers fabulous Pinot Noir typicity, it reveals a ruby translucent color to go with classic currants, forest floor, licorice and assorted earthy, underbrush aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, layered, seamless and perfectly balanced, with terrific intensity and length, it's a gorgeous effort to drink anytime over the coming decade, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it evolve longer.

ArteNOM



ArteNOM Seleccion de 1579 Blanco Tequila...$46.99
The mountain town of Jesús-María (elev. 6,079’) is tequila’s highest altitude agave region, and the El Pandillo Distillery is arguably one of the most forward-thinking and sustainable distilleries in the business.

ArteNOM Seleccion de 1414 Reposado...$48.99
From Arandas (elev. 5,400′), Feliciano Vivanco has been cultivating highland agave since Mexico’s tumultuous post-revolutionary period of 1919-1929. The family now holds 2,000 acres of estate-grown agave producing a rich, well-balanced spirit.

Old Elk Blended Straight Bourbon Whiskey


Old Elk Blended Straight Bourbon Whiskey...$44.99
The Old Elk recipe includes three quality ingredients – malted barley, rye, and corn.

The malted barley, combined with spicy essence of clove from the rye, and the traditional rich bourbon character from the corn, creates the overall robust taste profile.

Tasting Profile - Best for Sipping Whiskey:
Aroma: Sweet vanilla and caramel, clove spice, slight maple, and nutty almond
Taste: Maple syrup, almond, raw bran, chocolate, deep wood, and coconut
