Sierra Nevada Narwhal Imperial Stout





Sierra Nevada Narwhal Imperial Stout....$14.99 / 6pk
A malt-forward monster, highlighting the depths of malt flavor.
Narwhal Imperial Stout is inspired by the mysterious creature that thrives in deepest fathoms of the frigid Arctic Ocean. Featuring incredible depth of malt flavor, rich with notes of espresso, baker's cocoa, roasted grain and a light hint of smoke, Narwhal is a massive malt-forward monster. Aggressive but refined with a velvety smooth body and decadent finish, Narwhal will age in the bottle for years to come.


M. Chapoutier Combe Pilate Viognier


Okay, so this one sold out fast from a previous email and a lot of people called/emailed asking about when we would get more! That day is here!

2020 M. Chapoutier Combe Pilate Viognier....$21.99
From decomposed granite soils near Michel Chapoutier's private residence, the 2020 IGP Collines Rhodaniennes La Combe Pilate Viognier boasts lovely florals and beguiling apricot notes. Vinified and matured in used demi-muids, it's a wonderful expression of Viognier that won't break the bank. Medium to full-bodied, this vintage looks to be one of the best yet, featuring ample concentration and length.
Rated 90-92/100 The Wine Advocate

2018 Stag's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley...$199.99 / 3 liter bottle

A very pretty cabernet with very fine tannins that are polished and fresh. Beautiful currant, chocolate and walnut character. Medium to full body and a long, caressing finish. Builds beautifully at the end. So delicious now, but will develop nicely in bottle. Real 2018 character. Top vintage. Try after 2024.

2018 Bodegas Caro - Amancaya Malbec/Cabernet

From two legendary winemaking families
Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite and the Catena created another premium wine, this time a Malbec dominated cuvée, that would nevertheless be a balance between the Bordeaux and Argentine styles. To celebrate its Andean origin, the wine was named Amancaya, after the mountain flower which grows in the Andes.
We scored an amazing wine at an amazing price!

2018 Bodegas Caro - Amancaya Malbec/Cabernet...$14.99
Was $19.99

This shows blackberry, tobacco, coffee and iodine aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Polished, yet happily dense with creamy tannins and a long, savory finish. So drinkable now, but will improve with age. 70% malbec 30% cabernet sauvignon.
Rated 94/100 James Suckling

Urban Chestnut Brewing Company Count Orlok Pumpkin Ale

Urban Chestnut Count Orlok Black Pumpkin Ale...$8.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Count Orlok Black Pumpkin Ale – That’s right (again)! For the first time ever (again), Urban Chestnut is brewing a pumpkin beer and while it is officially a Revolution Series beer, it does have a little German flare- Nosferatu (Bird of Death), aka Count Orlok was THE German Count Dracula. He was a blood-sucking vampire… but being German he must’ve enjoyed beer too, right? We believe it is so and thus have created a Black Pumpkin Wheat Ale in his honor… a bier noir if you will

Chinaco 50th Anniversary Tequila Anejo...$469.99

Numbers 560-563 of only 600 made for the world


Special Limited Edition, with only 600 bottles produced for Mexico and U.S.A. Lot 89 is the last Tequila produced by our founder, Don Guillermo González Diaz Lombardo, in the mid-nineties. This magnificent Tequila was made with the best agaves from the family estate and later aged in his favorite barrels and stored in glass containers for more than 20 years for a special commemoration. This Limited Edition is a ‘blend’ of one-third of Lot 89 and two-thirds of the best Añejo that we have produced in the last two decades, with the same origins and processes that our founder established more than 50 years ago. Resulting in an Exceptional Añejo!


2015 Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne



Very limited!
2015 Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne...$399.99
For the warm and dry vintage this has tremendous freshness and elegance. The complex nose of citrus blossom, mint, lemon and lime zest opens up slowly as this aerates in the glass. The wine’s ample structure is still quite firm, which is a vintage characteristic, the mousse very fine but also very lively for an eight-year-old champagne. Cristal fans will love this as it is, but a year or two more in the bottle will do a lot for the very long mineral finish of this youthful masterpiece. A cuvee of 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay, picked from all 45 Cristal vineyard plots. Tasted at the Cristal vertical tasting at the champagne house on July 6th, 2023. Drink from release.
Rated 97/100 James Suckling
If the 2014 vintage was especially open and demonstrative, the 2015 Cristal is going to require more patience. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of citrus oil, crisp stone fruits, white flowers, crushed mint and subtle hints of buttery pastry, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with a deep, concentrated and rather introverted core of fruit framed by chalky extract and animated by a pretty pinpoint mousse. This is a serious, vinous Champagne that has considerable substance to age and may well evolve along the lines of the lovely 1985.

Blue Note Juke Joint Uncut -
Disclaimer: we do not have the batch they rated
While this is bottled in Memphis, Tennessee by B.R. Distilling, Blue Note Juke Joint is a Kentucky straight bourbon, and it’s a big one. That’s due in large part to being bottled at barrel proof, coming in at 58.75% ABV. The nose is fruit-forward, evoking freeze-dried strawberries, strawberry Blow Pop, cherry cobbler, pumpkin pie, and black tea with honey. The palate is hot, but not to its detriment, and it’s wonderfully creamy throughout. Chocolate-covered cherries are at the fore, joined by lemon-poppyseed muffin, fresh-squeezed lemon, grated ginger, brown sugar-cinnamon oatmeal, and a hint of licorice. The finish is long, inviting you to take another sip. —Julia Higgins
