Boulevard Brewing Irish Ale

Boulevard Brewing Irish Ale....$9.99 / 6pk
Irish Ale, Boulevard’s early spring seasonal beer, is our Midwestern tribute to the legendary red ales of old Ireland. Our recipe combines six kinds of pale and roasted barley malts to provide a rich, toasty flavor and tawny reddish hue.

Boulevard Chocolate Ale Limited Release

Just in time for Valentine's Day!
Boulevard Chocolate Ale Limited Release...$15.99 / 4pk 12oz
In developing this beer, Elbow and Boulevard brewmaster Steven Pauwels sought to harmonize the interplay of chocolate and malt, with each supporting and enhancing, but not overwhelming, the other. Just the right chocolate was essential. Elbow recommended Valrhona from the Dominican Republic, prized for its robust flavor and aroma, and a personal favorite. More than a mere savoring, the chocolate — in the form of nibs, or crushed, roasted beans – was incorporated into the brewing process itself.

Ayinger Maibock

Ayinger Maibock...$13.99 / 4pk bottles
In keeping with spring, our Maibock is a lighter representative than the dark Doppelbocks from our company. Its golden-yellow color and malty aroma go hand in hand with the sweetness of a real bock beer, softened by Hallertau hops. A high-quality brewed strong beer as a typical representative of a traditional beer style. This beer specialty is available from the end of March to May.

Beringer Chardonnay

Two Great Beringer Chardonnays!
2019 Beringer Chardonnay Napa Valley Estate Grown...$14.99
Compare to $15.99 at Total Wine and More

Lemon curd, baked apple, nutmeg and crushed hazelnut on the nose. Some vanilla, too. It’s full-bodied with a smooth, creamy texture. Layered and delicious. Drink or hold.
Rated 92/100 James Suckling

2020 Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay...$39.99

Although not labeled as such, Beringer's Private Reserve Chardonnay has been sourced for decades from the Gamble Ranch in Oakville. Planted around 1976 to Clone 4, the grapes are picked ripe and barrel fermented at relatively warm temperatures to build mouthfeel. The 2020 Chardonnay Private Reserve (along with all the other white varieties) was picked prior to any risk of smoke taint. Marked by scents of mango, guava and pineapple, it doesn't come across as that oaky, despite being barrel fermented and aged in approximately 80% new French oak. It's full-bodied and slightly buttery, with an appealing custardy richness and a long finish.

McPrice Myers

We are sorry, the first load sold out so fast!
We ordered a bunch more - stock up now!
2021 McPrice Myers - "Pound for Pound" Zinfandel...$18.99
The 2021 Zinfandel Pound for Pound has a deep ruby color and aromas of wild berry fruit and accents of rooibos tea, wildflowers, apricot, tar and underbrush. Medium-bodied, it floods the mouth with spicy fruit and floral streaks. It is grainy and very refreshing, with a long, detailed finish. Lovely! All that juicy fruit is ideal for barbecue and spicy dishes.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Advocate

2021 McPrice Myers - Bull by the Horns Cabernet Sauvignon...$18.99
Deep ruby, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Bull By The Horns has pleasingly herbal touches of bay leaves and dried herbs over a core of blackcurrant, game meat, tar and pencil shavings. The full-bodied palate has abundant, grainy tannins, uplifting, juicy acidity and a long finish with iron and herbal tones. This overdelivers for the price!
Rated 94/100 The Wine Advocate

2020 McPrice Myers - High on the Hog Red Blend....$18.99
The 2020 High on the Hog is a blend of 48% Grenache, 26% Petite Sirah, 7% Syrah, 7% Zinfandel, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Malbec and 2% Lagrein. It has a deep ruby color and scents of tar, iron, underbrush and cured meats with a core of red cherries and potpourri. The medium-bodied palate is soft, supple and alluring with a long, floral finish. This is delicious and very easy to drink!
Rated 93/100 The Wine Advocate

2021 McPrice Myers - Right Hand Man Syrah...$18.99
The recently bottled 2021 Syrah Right Hand Man is youthfully gregarious, with intense aromas of cassis, tar, violet, game meat and cracked pepper. The medium-bodied palate is chalky and fresh with concentrated yet detailed fruits and a long, layered finish. It's very expressive for this price point and easy to drink!
Rated 93/100 The Wine Advocate

2020 Brady Vineyards Zinfandel Paso Robles

Make sure you grab some of this one!
2020 Brady Vineyards Zinfandel Paso Robles...$21.99
The Brady Vineyard Zinfandel is rich and luxurious. Featuring a deep crimson color and aromas reminiscent of raspberry, black pepper, vanilla and spice. On tasting, it shows rich texture, gentle acidity, and savory bramble flavors. A hint of velvety oak lengthens the finish.
Parings: Enjoy with smoked or roasted meats, sharp cheeses and dishes with flavorful sauces.
What a stunning value in Zinfandel. The 2018 vintage scored 96/100 from The Wine Enthusiast, we think you will like this one even better! 2020 has not been reviewed yet.

Chopin Vodka Family Reserve Extra Rare Young Potato Vodka

Limited - we only received 6 bottles
Chopin Vodka Family Reserve Extra Rare Young Potato Vodka...$109.99
Compare to $129.99 at Total Wine and More
The Story:  Every year in the fields of our estate in Poland we plant a few special varieties of potatoes and grains, searching for promising new ingredients to distill.  Once in a decade, if we are lucky, we discover an exceptional variety of potato that produces an unrivaled vodka.  Our 2016 growing season led to some of the finest vodkas ever made by our distillery. Harvested at the peak of summer, when still young and their skins still tender, these potatoes would produce a remarkable vodka.  After being carefully distilled to retain as much of their sweet earthiness as possible, the potato spirit was rested in 50-year-old oak barrels for two years, giving it time to mellow before being bottled by hand.  The result is Chopin Family Reserve, the world’s first rested, super-premium potato vodka. We suggest enjoying it neat or in a classic martini to fully appreciate this remarkable vodka.

Port Charlotte 10 Year Old Heavily Peated Single Malt Scotch...$69.99
Port Charlotte 10 year old is conceived, distilled matured and bottled only on Islay. Made from 100% Scottish barley, it is trickle distilled through tall, narrow-necked stills for a balanced, heathery style of barbeque smoke.

2 new amazing wines from Santa Rita! Available at Kirkwood and online

2021 Sandhi Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills...$35.99 / 750ml
Wine Advocate: 96 Points
The 2021 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills has a medium ruby color and pretty scents of cinnamon stick, aniseed, iron, underbrush and charcuterie with a core of red cherries and cranberries. Medium-bodied yet very concentrated, it has a powdery frame, sparks of refreshing acidity and a very long, graphite-driven finish. Precise and detailed, it deserves to spend another 2-3 years in bottle.
2020 Sandhi Chardonnay Santa Rita Hills...$31.99 / 750ml
Wine Advocate: 94 Points
The 2020 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills is Chablisienne in style, opening with matchstick and roasted almond that give way to pure scents of lemon peel and chalk. The light-bodied palate is juicy and bright with transparent citrus flavors and a touch of texture to anchor the long, softly leesy finish
