Michel Reybier Champagne Brut 1er Cru

Michel Reybier Champagne Brut 1er Cru...$129.99
Produced for the owner of Château Cos d'Estournel in Bordeaux, this wine was wood-aged before undergoing its second fermentation. That gives it a rich, creamy character, attractively oxidative while also having fresh apple and citrus flavors. It's an intense, complex wine that has been bottled ready to drink, marking a very fine launch.

Mother's Brewing Imperial Grind...$10.99 / 4pk 12oz bottles
Perhaps you thought we had hit the limit of coffee aroma and flavor in a stout? Think again. Never content to rest on our laurels, your Mother’s is upping the ante. It starts with a robust and subtly sweet imperial stout. In the fermentation tanks, we add freshly roasted and ground espresso blend beans. But we’re not done yet. Cold-brewed coffee, blended just prior to bottling, means a beer that delivers a slap to the senses.

PROFILE: Black roasted malts and coffee, creamy mouthfeel with a dry roasty finish

Benton's Smoky Mountain Bacon

Back in stock at Forsyth

Benton's Smoky Mountain Bacon

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

2013 Produttori Barbaresco Pora....$59.99
A rich, cherry- and floral-scented red, effusive in aroma, with the core of cherry prevailing on the palate. Though fleshy, this gives way to firm tannins that line the lingering aftertaste. Inviting and full of energy, so decant now or wait.

Wild Shot Mezcal with Worm

From Toby Keith!
Wild Shot Mezcal Silver with Worm...$14.99

Lowest price online is $24.99
(average price of $48 online)
After distillation, Wild Shot Silver is bottled immediately and distributed for enjoyment resulting in a mezcal of exceptional quality that goes down smooth with a subtle, smoky finish. Recommended to be mixed in traditional tequila drinks or other drink recipes that call for tequila.

Toby's Story
“I have always been fascinated with Mexico and the drink Mezcal. It is a part of my life. Mexico is a theme that runs through many of my songs. The tradition and history of Mezcal is magical to me. Mezcal dates back to the 16th Century warriors celebrating the defeat of their enemies. There is an agave worm in every true bottle. And, the worm is not there for the look, it is there to be eaten. It is believed that the worm will bring a special experience and every individual will feel something different. I believed there was a complete void in the market place in getting this drink to the average person, so it seemed natural for me to start a business selling Toby Keith Mezcal.”

Los Bermejos Listán Negro Rosado

2017 Los Bermejos Listán Negro Rosado...$21.99
Varietal: Listán Negro
Country: Spain
Region: Canary Islands
Dry, high in acid and extremely refreshing, this pale pink rosado calls to mind a nervy Txakolina, charged with a uniquely Canary minerality. Direct-press.

Los Bermejos
Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain
Owned and run by winemaker Ignacio Valdera, Bermejos is on the easternmost island of Lanzarote. Only 125km from the African coast, conditions here are extreme. A volcanic explosion that lasted from 1730-1736 covered the entire island in lava and ash 3-5 meters deep. Consequently, each vine must be planted in a hole or hoyo that breaks through that infertile volcanic crust of petrified lava to the organic matter that can nourish it. The wind, which acts as a natural fungicide, is so ferocious that each hoyo is surrounded by rock walls for protection. The flora on Lanzarote – including the vines – cannot grow up very high; there are not enough nutrients in the soil to support sprawling greenery. Yields are miniscule (16 hL/ha) and each berry is concentrated with flavor. All vineyard work is done meticulously by hand. Some of the wines are certified organic, depending on the vintage. Ignacio supplements his crop with purchased fruit from growers who share his vision of sustainable viticulture; with such low yields the winery would have to own most of the land on the island in order to produce financially sustainable quantities of wine from exclusively proprietary grapes.

An Outstanding Graves

Grand Cru Classe Graves
The 2015 Malartic Lagravière is just as fabulous from bottle as it was from barrel. Rich, voluptuous and dramatic, it captures all of the natural intensity of the year. Black cherry, plum, mocha, chocolate, licorice and French oak build into a crescendo of stunning aromas, flavors and textures.

Dogfish Head Namaste Witbeer

Now in 12 pack cans at Forsyth
Dogfish Head Namaste Witbeer...$17.99 / 12pk cans
A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher. Namaste White was originally brewed at our pub in Rehoboth Beach with our Italian friend Leo from Birra del Borgo. It was a tribute to our friends at 3 Fonteinen brewery in Belgium, who had devastating production loss (1/3 of their annual production) in 2009. Forget about the car companies, this is the original hybrid. A cross between a Scotch Ale, an India Pale Ale and an American Brown, Indian Brown is well-hopped and malty at the same time (It's magical!).
