Big scores, great wines!!

Buty wines available online

2006 Buty Rediviva Phinny Hill Vineyard Horse Heaven Hills...$47.99
This first estate-grown bottling of Rediviva is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Syrah. Amazing aromatic complexity grabs you and leads you into the dark interior of the wine, a riot of red and black fruits, moist earth, smoke, anise, herb and toast. Power and elegance combined, with the structure to age for a decade or more. - P.G. (3/1/2010) - 96 "
Rated 96/100 The Wine Enthusiast
This ripe red offers an open texture that lets the flavors of boysenberry, cherry and spice shoot through easily, expanding and lingering on the long, expressive finish. There's lots of flavor, but this isn't weighty. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Best from 2011 through 2016. 930 cases made. –HS
Rated 93/100 The Wine Spectator
Velvety-textured and elegant on the palate, it is not as layered and richly fruity as the 2006 Columbia Rediviva, a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Syrah. Smoked meat, sausage, lavender, and black currant aromas lead to a ripe, sweetly fruited wine already revealing complex flavors as well as a lengthy finish. Drink it over the next 8-10 years.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate

2008 Buty Sémillon-Sauvignon-Muscadelle....$23.99
"Beautifully floral, fragrant and evocative, with lush and complex aromas of honeycomb, cracker and citrus, carrying into the mouth with rich, bright, detailed flavors. Stone and mineral elements are woven throughout, and the barrel fermentation adds hints of toast. - P.G. (3/1/2010) - 95"
Rated 95/100 The Wine Enthusiast

Tap Room No.21

From Rochester, New York
A tribute to “The Noble Experiment”, Tap Room No. 21 embodies an American spirit of perseverance. During the heyday of the Roaring Twenties, corruption was rampant, lawbreakers became icons and speakeasies replaced saloons. As an ode to the repeal of Prohibition, our best kept secret and most cherished contraband is available for you to enjoy among your crew of notorious bootleggers.

The ban has been lifted -- Drink openly, rest easily, and pay no heed to “speak easy”.

Tap Room No.21 Amber Ale....$6.29 / 6pk
There is no better way to celebrate the repeal of prohibition than with a cold glass of Tap Room No. 21 Amber Ale. No longer bound by law to secretly sip away in speakeasies, Moe’s Backroom Amber Ale can now be enjoyed in any setting, so raise a glass to celebrate our freedoms.
Tasting Note:Deep, golden Amber Ale with smooth, full bodied flavor. The palate captures just a hint of honey. Flavors of hop and malt are equally balanced.

Tap Room No.21 Pale Ale....$6.29 / 6pk

Tap Room No.21 Lager....$6.29 / 6pk
No need to bootleg. This Tap Room No. 21 Lager is available to us all. Out of the ashes of prohibition rises this premium craft American Lager. Once only obtainable in speakeasies to those with the clandestine passwords, Tap Room No. 21 Pale Ale is now available to anyone with taste.
Tasting Note:This traditional Lager was brewed in the full krausening process producing natural carbonation and a clean, smooth taste. The precise combination of six-row barley malt, corn grits, hops from Yakima Valley and the bottom fermenting yeast of High Falls come together to create a beer of supreme quality.
Balanced hop flavorBest served chilledABV: 4.5%IBU: 12
