4 Hands Contact Blueberry Prussia

4 Hands Blueberry Prussia Berliner Weisse...$9.99 / 4pk 12oz cans
A new spin on Prussia Berliner Weisse, this light, tart wheat beer was fermented on blueberries following brewhouse souring. Like Passion Fruit Prussia, this iteration is well-balanced and features delicate touches of blueberry that play nicely with the soft, lactic acidity to make this beer super drinkable and quenching.

CITRA HOPS -- Hoof Hearted Everybody Wants Some

Hoof Hearted Everybody Wants Some Double IPA...$15.99 / 4pk cans

Double IPA - 8% ABV
And he's got me vuelto loco, amigos. Everybody Wants Some!! is a rotating single-hop DIPA. It's the only acceptable response to the call of DLR-era Van Halen + 80's cult classic movies. A giant teddy bear, bigger than you. Sounds great. No, it really does sound good. But look Beth, I gotta go. The Christmas tree is on fire.

Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest

Usually they collab with a German brewery on their Oktoberfest, but they did not this year because of Covid.   I am sure it is still delicious!

Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest...$8.49 / 6pk
Our Festbier is a refreshing ode to beer’s biggest party. Toasty malts and German hops yield notes of fresh bread and floral, fruity character for a balanced, crisp lager that makes any moment festive.

Compare to $139.99 at Total Wine and MoreStandish's 2017 The Relic Shiraz-Viognier includes 2% Viognier, just enough to soften the wine's considerable tannins and add a floral element on the nose. Gorgeous scents of brambly blackberries and anise lead into a wine that's full-bodied and plush, long and silky, adding hints of cocoa and espresso on the finish.

Amazing Reds from Joel Peterson

 "In a!" -- Antonio Galloni

Two Amazing Reds from Joel Peterson, Cali Zinfandel Master! In Stock at Rock Hill, order online to transfer.
2018 Once & Future Zinfandel Old Hill Ranch....$49.99
The 2018 Zinfandel Old Hill Vineyard is flat-out stunning. Deep, layered and super-expressive, the 2018 offers unreal complexity, much of which comes from the diversity of a field blend of about 14 varieties that includes good bits of Grenache, Mataro, Alicante and Carignane, among others. A wine of total understatement, the 2018 is not obvious, but it has so much going on for readers who can take some time with it. Old Hill is one of the most pedigreed sites in Sonoma Valley. Joel Peterson certainly got every bit of potential out of this fruit in 2018. What a wine!Rated 95/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

2018 Once & Future Petite Sirah Palisades....$49.99

The 2018 Petite Sirah Palisades Vineyard is sumptuous, racy and explosive. Inky and voluptuous to the core, with soft curves and tremendous fruit intensity, the 2018 has it all. Crème de cassis, blueberry jam, spice, lavender, menthol and exotic white flowers build as this arrestingly beautiful showstopper opens up with a bit of air. Joel Peterson has done a tremendous job exalting the purity of the fruit, while avoiding the hard tannins that can at times make young Petite hard to approach. In a! -- Antonio Galloni
From Joel Peterson of Ravenswood fame!

2017 Ornellaia is here

Classic Super Tuscan! As always, very Limited.
2017 Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore....$224.98

Total Wine and More lists $249.97 for the 2016 vintage
A stunning wine, the 2017 Ornellaia offers a captivating interplay of richness and energy. Picking early was the key. Young vine Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc were harvested in August for the first time ever. In the glass, the 2017 offers up an enticing mélange of mocha, cedar, tobacco and licorice, with soft curves that add to its sensuality and allure. The 2017 is sumptuous and racy, as Ornellaias from warmer years tend to be, but it is not at all heavy or overdone. In a word: superb!
Rated 97/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous
This vintage of Ornellaia is called Solare and represents the 12th edition in the estate's Vendemmia d'Artista series featuring artwork by Tomás Saraceno. His beautiful art depicts a radiant sun halo and is intended as a symbol of sustainability. That theme of sunshine and warmth is particularly well suited to a vintage such as this. The Ornellaia 2017 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is generous and fruit-forward with dense richness and concentration all driven by the smaller and more compact berry size that characterizes this dry, hot growing season. Black and purple fruits segue to spice, tobacco, leather and some of those beautiful Mediterranean notes of black olive and wild sage. These various moving pieces work together in perfect harmony. The tannins are beautifully managed here. If you consider the more astringent and rougher approach of the mid-tier Le Serre Nuove dell'Ornellaia, this wine shows a whole other level of magnificent tannic management that could not have been easy given the diminutive berry size. This vintage sees a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 9% Cabernet Franc. The vineyard soils are characterized by reddish sand with calcareous rock. The wine is fermented in both stainless steel and cement and is transferred over to barrique to finish malolactic fermentation. It ages in barrique for 18 months followed by another 12 months in bottle. Some 150,000 bottles were released in April 2020.
Rated 96/100 The Wine Advocate
A big, rich wine for the vintage, yet poised and lively with firm, chewy tannins that give form and intensity to the wine. It shows loads of blackberry, blackcurrant and walnut flavors. Ripe yet polished tannins. Give this three or four years to come together.

Damien Martin Macon Verze

Family owned, father and son team!
A favorite white Burgundy is back in stock!
Great Value!!

2017 Damien Martin Macon Verze....$19.99
  • 100% Estate Grown Chardonnay
  • Full malolactic
  • Organic but not certified
The 2017 Macon Verzé spent 10 months in tank and a small part in barrel. It has a rounded, slightly honeyed style, with ripe orchard fruits, medium body, a supple texture, and a good finish. It has solid balance and is a good effort for near-term drinking.

1800 Milenio Extra Anejo

Limited and tough to get!
Back in stock!

1800 Milenio Extra Anejo...$199.99
An expression of the finest craftsmanship. After a long and delicate aging process, the extra-aged tequila is matured for a short period in French oak Cognac barrels creating a balanced, soft, and unique flavor with notes of vanilla, red fruit and cinnamon. A perfect expression of the land that nurtures the fine Weber blue agave and the hands that craft its final liquid, Milenio is considered the best representation of 1800 Tequila’s roots and worthy of only those who appreciate the finest tequila.

2016 Finca Beth • 2km Malbec Cabernet Franc...$23.99

Suggested retail is $35
65% Malbec, 35% Cabernet Franc.
Sustainable Non-Certified
Less than 600 cases bottledNow that the range has grown, the name of the original wine has been extended from simply 2km to 2016 2km Malbec Cabernet Franc, a blend of 65% Malbec with 35% Cabernet Franc. The two grapes fermented together in concrete eggs. Part of the wine matured in 500-liter oak barrels and the rest in 225-liter barriques for some 14 months. The style, source and process have not changed since the initial 2013 vintage. There's something earthy, floral (violets) and notes of wild berries and herbs. The palate reveals the signature chalky tannins from the limestone-rich soils from Altamira and that special tastiness and mouthfeel. 6,500 bottles were filled in August 2017.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate
The 2016 Cabernet Franc Malbec Paraje Altamira is a co-fermented blend of 65% Malbec and 35% Cabernet Franc aged in a mix of new 500-Liter and used 225-liter barrels. It offers a complex bouquet of black raspberries, currants, peppery herbs and crushed violets in a medium-bodied, juicy, elegant style. With terrific balance, lively acidity and a clean, slightly old-school feel, it's going to drink nicely over the coming 7-8 years.
Rated 91/100 Jeb Dunnuck

More info
2km is a collaborative effort between the team at Finca Beth and winemaker Juan Pablo Michelini. Named after the 2 kilometer long vineyard where the fruit is sourced, it is a wine of exceptional balance and purity, with floral and mineral qualities that speak directly to its origin high in wilderness of Paraje Altamira, in Mendoza’s Uco Valley.

Palmer & Co. Champagne Brut Reserve only $35

A true French Champagne for $35!!

Palmer & Co. Champagne Brut Reserve...$34.99
We are the lowest price on Wine-Searcher
Palmer Brut Reserve is based on a selection of wines from the best vineyards in the Champagne region. The Premiers and Grands Crus from the Montagne de Reims area predominate and lend their distinctive personality to these wines.
The nose, amazingly clean, is expressed through a rich palette of aromas, including citrus, pear and apricot with some subtle notes of hazelnut and a discreet touch of buttery brioche.
Succulent and substantial to the palate, yet with an unfettered freshness, this wine is eminently seductive: a model of perfect balance.

100 Point Cabernet

A hundred Pointer from Washington State's Top Cabernet Producer, with just a touch of age!

2014 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley....$199.99
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is another tour de force from this estate that's reminiscent of first growth Bordeaux from a vintage like 2009. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in new barrels, it offers incredible notes of blackcurrants, graphite, lead pencil shavings and crushed rocks in a full-bodied, decadent, insanely layered and seamless style. This beauty possesses ultra-fine tannin, no hard edges and a forward, already hard to resist style, yet it's going to keep for more than two decades.
