Melvin Brewing Cosmic Sherpa IPA

Melvin Brewing Cosmic Sherpa IPA...$14.99 / 4pk 16 oz cans
We ferment this Hazy/Juicy West Coast IPA with neutral ale yeast to achieve a beer which allows hop expressions to shine bright and guide you straight to hop nirvana with no distortion from esters like NEIPAs do. We've left out the crystal malts so don't expect the sweeter resinous profile like many other OG West Coast IPAs and loaded this batch up with a generous dose of oats and raw wheat. We also adjusted our water profile slightly to partially emulate characteristics we appreciate NEIPAs lending to hop forward beers. Think east meets west... Strata, Motueka, and Mosaic Incognito lend over the top notes of stone fruits, strawberries, tropical fruits, and fresh cut grass.

2019 Jackpot Vinho Regional Lisboa Red Blend...$9.99
Made exclusively from indigenous Lisboan grapes, this easy-drinking, good-looking, well-balanced Portuguese wine will quickly become the talk of the town. The grapes ripen slowly producing a rich, juicy wine loaded with red fruits. Well balanced and delicious.  We bet you you’ll like it.

Lisbon has always been about discoveries. The Atlantic Ocean gave the city every reason to explore, learn from, and engage with other cultures. It also gave it every reason to be the strength of Portugal’s empire that spread across the world.

Jackpot is but one more treasure from the land of discovery. In honor of one of Europe’s oldest casinos still in operation (since 1931), The Casino of Estoril, Jackpot is about calling on our history and our future.

Perennial Artisan Ales People Power IPA....$12.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
IPA with Cryo Amarillo, Cryo Simcoe, Cryo Idaho 7, and Centennial. 6.2% ABV.

Brewed to support ACLU in their mission to protect civil liberties for all Americans, People Power is a nationwide collab that celebrates the unique privilege of self-determination we strive to protect for all Americans. This election had record turnout, which is a fact worth celebrating regardless of politics.

Most of the dozens of other versions of People Power (led by our friends @threesbrewing and @peoplepowerbeer) were released before Election Day. We had planned to release this beer two weeks ago, but instead we watched with shock and horror as the US Capitol was stormed by a violent mob of homegrown terrorists. Democracy is not always a straightforward or elegant affair, but that was absolutely beyond the pale. Clearly we have a lot of healing and growth to do as a nation. We are proud to be an open and affirming brewery, and will continue our work in 2021 and beyond. As John Lewis noted (see can-bottom), “we must be our own legacy.”

Papaya-mandarin fusion peacefully yields to a crush of pineapple, lychee, and guava. Throngs of tropical flavor constituents exercise their vote on your taste buds. The impressions they cast are as diverse and wonderful as the electorate. They meld together to form the very fabric of democracy. We lift our cans alongside their harmonious voices and celebrate the power of the people to determine the future course of their ever more juicy union.

Dom Perignon Rose

2006 Dom Perignon Rose...$389.98
Compare to $399.97 at Total Wine and More
The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is every bit as captivating as it was last year, maybe even more so. At times powerful, but in other moments finessed, the 2006 constantly changes in the glass, revealing a different shade of its personality with every taste. Perhaps most importantly, the 2006 seems to have gained a level of precision and pure sophistication it did not show last year, when it was quite a bit less put together. Back then, the 2006 was a wine of tremendous potential; today that potential is starting to be realized. Quite simply, the 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé is a magical Champagne. Don’t miss it.
Rated 97+/100 Antonio Galloni Vinous Media
This graceful 2006 shows lovely freshness, featuring a pronounced note of pink grapefruit granita layered with finely detailed accents of toasted nut, lemon thyme, smoky mineral and crystallized honey. Plushly creamy in texture, with a steely streak of acidity well-knit throughout and firming the lasting, spiced finish. Drink now through 2029.
Rated 96/100 Wine Spectator
The 2006 Dom Pérignon Rosé continues to show very well, unfurling in the glass with aromas of bitter orange, dried white flowers, red berries, toast and woodsmoke. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and muscular, with all the phenolic structure and depth that one would expect from a rosé that contains more than 20% still red wine, concluding with a sapid and chalky finish. As I wrote earlier this year, this is a vinous, gastronomic rosé that numbers among the decided successes of the 2006 vintage.

Intrinsic - super values!

2017 Intrinsic Columbia Cabernet Sauvignon...$18.99

Rated 93/100 James Suckling

Chacra Pinot Noir

Burgundy from Patagonia?
For years we have seen collaborations between famous Bordeaux Chateaus and Argentine Bodegas, the likes Caro (Bodegas Catena and Baron Rothschild) come to mind, but rarely have we seen a Burgundian collaboration, until now plus throw in some great press too! We are very excited to offer our second vintage from Bodega Chacra Barda Pinot Noir from Patagonia, made in collaboration with Jean Marc Roulot, owner and winemaker of Domaine Roulout in Meursault. This one is even better than last year!

2019 Chacra Barda Patagonia Pinot Noir...$23.99
I love the forest-fruit, must and wet-earth character here. Perfumed. Medium body, very fine round tannins and intense, crushed stones. Hints of cedar and hazelnuts. Crunchy. Always an exciting pinot noir from Argentina. Drink or hold.
Rated 93/100 James Suckling

2018 Chacra Lunita Patagonia Pinot Noir...$39.99
A beautifully plush and fresh pinot that has much in the way of dark cherries and plums that ride on a silky, elegantly defined bed of fine tannins. This has superior elegance, depth and drive. Drink or hold.
Rated 96/100 James Suckling

Finca El Origen Reserva Malbec

2019 Finca El Origen Reserva Malbec...$11.99
100% Malbec from Mendoza
Aromas are intense with notes of lively red fruits, red apples, floral, herbs and spices. Lovely crunchy fruit underpinned by fresh acidity. Refined, fine grained and sophisticated.
Rated 95/100 Decanter Magazine
A structured malbec with blueberry and licorice aromas and flavors that are buttressed with stone undertones. Like the minerality. Full body. Structured tannins. Fresh and vibrant. This needs a year or two to soften. Drink after 2022.
Rated 93/100 James Suckling
