Jacob's Pardon Small Batch American Whiskey






Jacob's Pardon Small Batch American Whiskey....$79.99
97.1 proof
Aged a minimum of 8 years
BACKGROUND
Brothers. Bootleggers. Legends. Nearly a century ago, Jacob and Abner Taub crafted and bootlegged their own whiskey during Prohibition to support their family. Then one fateful winter night in 1929, their world came crashing down during a sting that would land the brothers behind bars.Six long years later, Franklin D. Roosevelt pardoned the Taub brothers. They were able to reignite their family business with their brother Martin and help launch Baltimore Club Whiskey. This would set into motion a family tradition that would span generations. The brothers served their time, and now, you can spend time enjoying Jacobs Pardon, a fine American whiskey that pays homage to their rebellious roots. Its complex, smooth, timeless, and frankly, a little liberating. It would be a crime not to enjoy it.
COLOR:  Rich gold, amber with flawless clarity.
NOSE:   Rich aromas of buttered sweet corn, brown sugar and espresso.
PALATE:   Tangy taste profile that’s deep in spice-driven baked ham, vanilla bean, and cinnamon bun flavors.

FINISH:   Long, pleasant sweetness with nuances of biscuit, wood and grain.


G.D Vajra Barolo Bricco Viole







2016 G.D Vajra Barolo Bricco Viole....$84.99
From the Bricco delle Viole cru, or the vineyard most strongly associated with this historic estate, this is a versatile or "evergreen" wine that always delivers consistent results. The G.D. Vajra 2016 Barolo Bricco delle Viole sees fruit from a seven-hectare vineyard with high exposures positioned at 400 to 480 meters above sea level. This site shows characteristic Tortonian-era soils classified as Sant'Agata marl with fossils. These soils have an enormous capacity to regulate the ripening process, resulting in the longer growing seasons relished by the Nebbiolo grape. In a word, the profile here is classic. You get delicate fruit tones and wild rose with camphor ash, licorice and tar. The wine is beautifully harmonious and ethereal. Some 15,000 bottles are hitting the market now.
Rated 98/100 Wine Advocate
Mint and cut grass aromas give way to cherry, black currant and raspberry fruit in this juicy red. Tar, tobacco and eucalyptus accents add depth as this builds to a long, gripping finish. Shows fine balance and length
The 2016 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is going to need a few years to emerge, but it has all the qualities to develop into a truly special wine. Dark red/purplish fruit, hard candy, mint, lavender and sweet spice give the 2016 striking inner perfume. On the palate, the 2016 is a tightly wound, classically austere Barolo that will especially delight readers with traditionally leaning palates. In this late-ripening vintage, there is a great balance of structure, aromatics and mid-palate sweetness. I absolutely loved it.-- Antonio Galloni
Rated 97/100 Vinous Media
Mint and cut grass aromas give way to cherry, black currant and raspberry fruit in this juicy red. Tar, tobacco and eucalyptus accents add depth as this builds to a long, gripping finish. Shows fine balance and length. Best from 2023 through 2046. 1,250 cases made. — BS

2017 Calera Pinot Noir de Villiers Vineyard...$74.99

2012 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon






2012 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon...$129.98
Revealing the great blending skills of Beringer’s winemaking team, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is a winner. Having purchased Private Reserves for many years, I can attest that they age incredibly well. The 1991, one of the great successes of that vintage, is still aging beautifully at nearly 25 years of age. The sensational 2012 (10,000 cases) boasts an opaque purple color along with abundant aromas of charcoal, burning embers, creme de cassis, chocolate, blackberries and licorice. The long, complex, compelling, full-bodied texture along with terrific purity and a savory, rich mouthfeel result in a classic, quintessential Napa Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now and over the next 20-25 years.
Rated 96/100 The Wine Advocate

Robert Craig Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon








2015 Robert Craig Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon...$49.98
A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain offers a classic Mountain fruit profile with its complex aromatics and fresh, focused, chiseled and structured style on the palate. Mulberries, incense, exotic flowers, and spice all leap from the glass of this inky colored Cabernet Sauvignon, and it’s medium to full-bodied, structured and vibrant on the palate. Brought up in 80% new French oak, it has loads of potential but needs 2-4 years of bottle age.
Rated 94+/100 Jeb Dunnuck

Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Edward James Estate








2017 Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Edward James Estate...$85.99
The 2017 Chardonnay Edward James Estate is another Russian River release that has a vivid medium gold color as well as exotic notes of honeyed citrus, pineapple, white flowers, and some salty minerality. It's pure, medium to full-bodied, has a seamless texture, and a great finish. The oak is nicely integrated, and given the overall balance here, it's going to evolve nicely for 7-8 years at a minimum.
Rated 96/100 Jeb Dunnuck
Offers a silky mouthfeel, with crunchy acidity behind the vibrant dried pineapple, baked apple and lemon curd flavors. The fine-textured finish lingers, revealing juicy richness and crisp spiciness. Drink now through 2022. 622 cases made. — KM

Agostino Family Red Blend

 


Great buy! 

Suggested retail $37 via Jeb Dunnuck


2014 Agostino Family Red Blend...$24.99
The 2014 Red Blend checks in as a blend of 50% Malbec, 20% Petit Verdot, and 15% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah that was aged 18 months in 70% new French oak. It offers a ripe, sexy bouquet of blackcurrants, smoked earth, tobacco and gamey meats. This gives way to a full-bodied, ripe, sexy wine that has sweet tannin and no hard edges on the palate, with beautifully integrated acidity, tannin, and oak. Drink it anytime over the coming 8-10 years.

Krug Grande Cuvée 169ème Édition




Krug Grande Cuvée 169ème Édition....$89.98 / 375ml
Every year since the foundation of the House of Krug, a new Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée is created to offer the most generous expression of Champagne.
This bottle belongs to the 169ème Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée, a blend of 146 wines from 11 different years. The youngest is from the year 2013 and the oldest dates back to 2000. A stay of around seven years in Krug’s cellars gives this Édition its remarkable expression and elegance. Every glass poured from it is the fruit of more than 20 years of careful craftsmanship.

The 169ème Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée was composed around the harvest of 2013. The season began with a seemingly endless winter followed by a rainy and cool spring. Luckily, summer was hot and sunny, although also marked by hailstorms, which took their toll in the vineyards. The wines of the year were complete, expressive and full of flavours.

To create this Édition, the Cellar Master looked to accentuate the year’s fullness and beautiful aromatic elegance with different plots’ wines from 10 other years. The careful attention given to the vines and Krug’s unique respect for the individual character of each plot enabled the breadth of expression of this Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée.

In all, reserve wines from the House’s extensive library made up 40% of the final blend, bringing the breadth and roundness so essential to each Édition of Krug Grande Cuvée.

The final composition of this bottle of Krug Grande Cuvée is 43% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 22% Meunier.

2018 Almarada Uco Valley Cabernet Sauvignon


Great Cabernet Value from Argentina

2018 Almarada Uco Valley Cabernet Sauvignon...$13.99
We had such great success with Almarada's Malbec we very excited to find out that made a Cabernet. Once we tried it, we knew we had to have it in our stores. This Cabernet leans toward Bordeaux in style. Nose of blackberry, graphite and a touch of tobacco. Medium to full body with rich fruit on the pallet and some nice silky tannins on the finish.

In 1992 he established the first Argentinean boutique winery: Finca La Anita. Antonio was inspired by the concept of French Choteau: vineyards of great genetic and variety purity, identifying clones of every variety, and growing grapes and vinify them near the same place where they were planted, from specific plots, true single vineyards.

Roche Audran Cotes du Rhone Villages Cesar


Certified Organic & Biodynamic
Demeter France--Biodynamic




2016 Roche Audran Cotes du Rhone Villages Cesar...$25.99
100% Grenache
The vines for the César range from 55 to 100 years old, and grow in very complex soil formed by the same geological upheavals that created the Alps. The grapes are hand-picked by parcel, with very low (25-35 hectoliters per hectare) yields. Though the Cuvée Cesar falls under the Côtes du Rhône Villages appellation, it is a wine that outshines many wines with a more prestigious pedigree. His very old Grenache vines produce a wine packed with black raspberry, black pepper, with hints of cassis fruit, all supported by firm ripe tannins. In the nose plum, red and black cherry, and garrigue spices mingle together. While the “Cuvée César” is a relatively lush and generous wine, it is also a wine built for the long term. So drink it now with a nice steak au poivre, or wait a few years and try it with venison or duck breast.

Sierra Nevada Big Little Thing Imperial IPA



Sierra Nevada Big Little Thing Imperial IPA....$8.99 / 6pk
Make way for the Big Little Thing, an imperial IPA flexing a full malt body, restrained sweetness, and tropical hop flavors of mango, grapefruit and tangerine.
Big Little Thing defies brewing logic. A monster ABV and booming hop character, but tame sweetness and a clean finish? This anomaly of imperial IPA starts with the mash. More than just using a huge volume of malt (and we do fill our mill to overflowing), we mash our grain aggressively to yield a higher ratio of fermentable vs. unfermentable sugars. This allows yeast to metabolize nearly all sugar, which both boosts the ABV and cuts the malt sweetness. At the same time, yeast and hops collaborate on their own magic. Dry hopping during active fermentation sparks biotransformation: yeast cells alter the chemical compounds in hops to unlock entirely new aromas—like the tropical wave that washes over Big Little Thing.

NV Roederer Brut Premier Collection $49.99
42% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, 18% Meunier from 55% estate vineyards; 16% fermented and matured in oak casks; 30% malolactic. The rise and evolution of this cuvée over the past 15 years, and particularly since the construction of its dedicated facility in 2007, has showed no sign of slowing today, as Jean-Baptiste Lécaillon continues his fanatical regime of experimenting, tweaking and refining every detail. I’ve long adored Brut Premier, a grand pinnacle and dependable bargain in the non-vintage Champagne stakes.
Rated 94/100 Decanter Magazine


2012 Roederer Brut Vintage...$75.99
Just over two-thirds Pinot Noir (Verzenay) and the balance southeast-facing Chardonnay from Chouilly. This has 30% of oak fermentation which has compressed the wine, lending it an air of extreme concentration. The nose is gently spicy, offering peaches and cherries as well as neat autolysis edge. The palate has a powerful, long and assertive feel, with peach and lemon pith, chalky minerals, and some grapefruit. A powerful vintage for Roederer.

2013 Roederer Brut Rose Vintage....$75.99
White fruit immediately on the nose, as well as some very strong lemon and lime notes. Some gently chalky notes, too, from the Chouilly chardonnay, which is super chalky. The palate has such focus and drive and a great, mineral core. Very long with a fresh line of acidity and peripheral, smooth flesh. Some pink grapefruit at the finish. Drink or hold.
