Limerick Lane Syrah Grenache

2014 Limerick Lane Syrah Grenache...$45.99
The 2014 Syrah/Grenache blend (67% Syrah and 33% Grenache) is also aged the same amount of time in neutral oak, but production is slightly larger at 580 cases. This wine has a Mediterranean personality. Notes of lavender, ground pepper, blackcurrants, black cherries, raw meat and smoked game are all present in this full-bodied, richly fruity, Rhône-like wine. It has light tannins, loads of fruit, a voluptuous mouthfeel and should drink well for the next 5-6 years. Alcohol here is relatively moderate at 14.4%.
Rated 90/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Santa Fe Lustgarten with Raspberries

Santa Fe Lustgarten with Raspberries...$8.99 / 6pk cans
Dark Ale with Raspberries
When grain and yeast love each other very much, a beer is born. When you add some raspberries, things get a little freaky-deaky and you end up with this. Lustgarten is a dark lager that has toast and chocolate notes with just a subtle hint of raspberry. The perfect beer to split with someone special. Or the perfect beer to split with absolutely no one since it’s just a 12 ounce can and will only be around for a limited time.

Omnipollo Shoutao Peach Slush IPA

Omnipollo Shoutao Peach Slush IPA....$12.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
IPA with peach and lactose

Omnipollo Nebuchadnezzar Double IPA - fresh

Omnipollo Nebuchadnezzar Double IPA...$12.99 / 4pk 16oz

Imperial IPA, 8.5 % by vol.

“Neb” is a home brew recipe that has been scaled up with no consideration to economies of scale. Some say idiotic, and as an economist I would have to agree. Get fresh or die trying.

Evil Twin Molotov is back! Fresh batch

Fresh batch!
Evil Twin Molotov Cocktail Imperial IPA....$9.99 / 4pk
Style: Imperial IPAABV: 13%
Did you like Before During and after Christmas, maybe you thought it poured brilliantly, the alcohol was admirable well hidden and you loved how the arrogant amounts of hops numbed you. This beer will knock your tongue off, essentially due to the obscure amounts of hops that went down this explosive fella – it’s a tour de force in hoppiness and by far the craziest beer ever made from Evil Twin – but not the last ‘Mwahahahaahhaha’
Rated 97/100 RateBeer

Evil Twin Mission Gose

Evil Twin Mission Gose...$10.99 / 4pk 12oz
Effortlessly cool, popping up up in a cultish fashion and constantly on a tasty mission. This is mission Gose: our take on a old-fashioned and slightly odd German style beer that is with good reason trending as the tastiest right now. It’s tart, salty, low in alcohol and probably the most refreshing beer you’ll have. Perhaps enjoy this beer in a restaurant with a mission near you. Wherever you are we made it stylishly good and exclusively well balanced just for you. - label

Imperial Stout brewed with Maple Syrup and Coconut
Evil Twin Even More Coco Jesus...$13.99 / 4pk 16oz Cans
A few times in the history of craft beer a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into the higher godly league.  Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick as fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, muscovado sugar, maple syrup, coconut and obviously only made in limited amounts.  People - this is the taste of rare!

Clos St. Jean Chateauneuf du Pape V.V

2015 Clos St. Jean Chateauneuf du Pape V.V.....$47.99
A special cuvée produced for the American importer, Eric Solomon, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is huge. It blends 85% or more concrete-aged Grenache with small amounts of Syrah and Mourvèdre aged in barrique. The result is a massive wine filled with red fruit. The tannins are ripe to the point of creaminess on the mid-palate then firm up on the long finish. This hides its alcohol better than the regular cuvée and should age longer as a result.

Le Cirque Rouge - new vintage scores 90 points!

2014 Le Cirque Rouge....$15.99
Given the difficulty in the vintage, I was shocked at the quality of the 2014 IGP Cotes Catalanes and it’s a beautiful wine. Made from 60% Grenache, 20% Carignan and 20% Syrah, it has medium to full-bodied richness to go with ample darker berry fruits, crushed herbs and pepper on the nose and palate. From 50+-year-old vines and tiny yields on the order of two tons per acre, it’s a no-brainer and will drink nicely for 2-3 years.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate

2014 Shafer Relentless Syrah

2014 Shafer Relentless Syrah....$93.99
Shafer's 2014 Relentless is fabulous. The most expressive and varietally expressive of the three vintages of Relentless I tasted. In 2014, Relentless has 11% Petite Sirah, which, along with the personality of the year, kicks up the aromatics and flavors in a meaningful way. Lavender, mint, violets and crème de cassis notes are laced into the super-expressive finish. The 2014 is shaping up to be a real gem.
Rated 92-95/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Stone Brewing Inevitable IPA

Stone Brewing Inevitable IPA...$15.99 / 6pk
Loral hops were released in 2016 and quickly became one of our brewers’ favorite varieties. It was highlighted in our single hop IPA series, Stone Hop Revolver IPA, and was the featured hop in the hugely popular Stone Ghost Hammer IPA. Then there’s Dr. Rudi, which has been around since 1976. Originally known as Super Alpha, this hop brings classic piney and herbal notes, which pairs it perfectly with the oral, citrusy aroma of Loral. A pairing like this was bound to happen. Some might even call it inevitable.

Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin - great 2015 vintage

Three Outstanding Gevrey Chambertin from Domaine Faiveley

2015 Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin Les Cazatieres....$126.99
Blackberry and cherry, violet, mint and spice aromas and flavors signal this polished, velvety red, with dense, assertive tannins and a finish that evokes a stony, chalky impression
Rated 95/100 The Wine Spectator
2015 Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos des Issarts Monopole....$112.99
An underlying stony mineral element meets cherry, raspberry, blueberry and leafy tobacco accents in this taut red, which gains elegance and silkiness with air, while the aftertaste is long and fine
Rated 94/100 The Wine Spectator

2015 Domaine Faiveley Gevrey Chambertin V.V....$54.99
Offers gorgeous fruit and purity, with black currant, violet, bilberry and mineral notes that are sweet and allied to a silky texture. The acidity is bright and the tannins refined as this picks up a licorice element on the long finish.

Sierra Nevada 4-Way IPA...$13.99 mix 12 pack
For more than 30 years, we’ve been pushing the boundaries of hop-forward beers. This collection of IPAs is our gift to you. Our 4-Way IPA pack features our island-inspired Tropical Torpedo, a returning favorite red IPA, and two all-new IPAs exploring the range of hop flavor.

Sierra Nevada Know Good IPA
You think you know good IPA?
This straightforward, slightly hazy, American IPA has just enough malt body to launch the citrus and floral hop notes straight to your palate, making Know Good perfect for today or any day. When it comes to hop flavor, we know what good is, and you do, too.

Sierra Nevada No Middle Ground Coffee IPA

Cold-brewed coffee and fruit-forward hops create a unique IPA
At first glance, it might seem strange to combine coffee and hoppy beer, but really, the two flavors have a lot in common. Good coffee and hops both have complex and fruity aromas which create layers of flavor. No Middle Ground is brewed with fruit-forward hop varietals and cold-brewed coffee for a unique take on the IPA.

Sierra Nevada Flipside Red IPA
Citrusy and fruit-forward hops soar over a smooth malt body.
Flipside finds the perfect balance between hops and malt in this easy-drinking red IPA. It features just enough smooth and slightly sweet malt body to support huge citrusy and tropical fruit-forward hop flavors from the use of Simcoe, Citra, and Centennial hops.

Sierra Nevada Tropical IPA
A tropical take on the American IPA
Inspired by the island life, we created an IPA completely disconnected from the mainland. We used our one-of-a-kind Hop Torpedo to deliver an intense rush of hop flavor and the lush aromas of mango, papaya, and passionfruit with every sip. Enjoy our tropical twist on the American IPA.

Sierra Nevada Experimental Hop Pack

Sierra Nevada Experimental Hop Pack...$18.99
We’re always on the hunt for exciting hop flavors, and recently our search led us to the Pacific Northwest and straight to the source of bold new hops. These varietals are so new, they are only known by numbers, but they just might be the next big thing in beer. Jump in with us, and get acquainted with these cutting-edge experimental hops in four new hop-heavy beers.

Great closeout price! 95 Point White!

Great closeout price! 95 Point White!
2013 Carlisle "The Derivative" White Blend...$19.99
This marks another stunning vintage for this blend of 55% Sémillon, 25% Muscadelle, 10% Palomino and 10% Colombard, made by Zin master Mike Officer. Pungent in pear and pineapple, it has cutting-edge minerality, a taste of slate, and remains at turns creamy and crisp on the palate. This wine is unusual in all the right ways yet triumphantly delicious.
