2019 Le Grand Valmal Cotes du Rhone Villages Vieilles Vignes...$17.99

60% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre
This Rhone is the real deal and a sensational value! Could easily be confused for a Chateauneuf do Pape. Floral notes accent fresh mixed berries in this 2019 Cotes du Rhone Villages that is made from Old Vine Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. The Syrah dominates and leads to a full-bodied wine but with silky tannins. It has a slight pepperiness to add some dimension and complexity.

Rated 92/100 Ray Jordan, Australian Wine Writer


2018 Hierogram Lodi Zinfandel...$12.99 / 750ml

Solidly built and fruity without seeming sweet, this full-bodied wine combines concentrated flavors with a firm structure of fine-grained tannins and supportive acidity. Light oak touches add interest, but the wine's power and appeal come from bold varietal-fruit flavors.
60% New American Oak, aged for 15 months
Concentrated and complex, this full-bodied wine overflows with ripe berries, black-pepper and beef aromas that continue in the generous flavors. A big broad mouthfeel, full body and mild tannins all add to an impression of richness.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Enthusiast


2018 Tait The Ball Buster Barossa Valley...$19.99
Mostly Shiraz

Opaque ruby. Smoke-accented aromas of ripe dark berries, pungent flowers and vanilla, along with a hint of white pepper that adds spicy lift. Concentrated, expansive cherry liqueur, blackberry and fruitcake flavors become more energetic as the wine opens up. Round, well-knit tannins frame the appealingly sweet finish, which hangs on with impressive, dark fruit-dominated persistence.
Rated 91/100 Vinous Media

2020 Comte de Langeron Saint Amour Cru Beaujolais...$23.99

Very floral and fruity nose. The nose of this wine jumps out of the glass with cherries and ripe strawberries. The palate is rich with a hint of dark chocolate and it is medium to full bodied. Great structure and presence in the glass with its vibrant color. This Saint Amour is a great year round red wine. Great in the summer, just put chill it for about 15 minutes. Also perfect food wine with a wide variety of foods. So Versatile!

2019 Sidonio de Sousa - Reserve White....on sale.....$13.99
Was $17.99


The white grapes of the Bairrada strike again.
The Sidonio de Sousa Reserva White completes this family of wines. Concocted with most of the same grapes used to make the sparklings (Bical, Maria Gomes, and Cerceal), this dry, still, white comes together to delight our palates.

Beautiful, crisp, lemony acidity with a nutty round supple mouth feel showcase the beauty and ageability of the region’s white wines. Fantastically mineral, with a hint of sea salt (hello, Atlantic ocean), this white is a brilliant round-off for the Sidonio de Sousa clan

Le Grand Valmal Plaisir Rose

New 2021 Vintage of this classic dry French Rose

2021 Le Grand Valmal Plaisir Rose...$14.99
Cinsault, Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre
Deeper colored rose and it is also fuller-bodied. Strawberry and blackberry flavors dominate and it is rich and round. It finishes with great length and power, plus a bit of peppery spice.

2020 La Franc Touch Cabernet Franc

Only 330 cases  produced









2020 Carbonneau La Franc Touch Cabernet Franc....$29.99
100% Cabernet Franc
WINEMAKING: Manual harvest in the morning to preserve the freshness of the fruit. Maceration at 8 ° C for 5 days to extract the fruit without moving the harvest. Short maceration and fermentation in indigenous yeasts at 24-26 ° C with very little intervention on the wine. 20% whole clusters.

TASTING: On the nose there is a mixture of fresh red fruit, mint and violet. The wine expresses the liveliness of Cabernet Franc, both ripe and fresh from the Bordeaux clay-limestone terroir. On the palate, there is a good acidity which gives length to balance the sweetness and the roundness of the fruit

The estate will be full organic status in 2022 and biodynamics by 2023

2019 Chateau Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge.

 







Almost gone!!!  Bottles in stock at Forsyth and Lamp and Lantern


2019 Chateau Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge....$84.98
So much ripe damson-plum and blackberry fruit, but also notes of licorice, candied ginger and baking spices. In spite of all the considerable power and concentration, this is anything but loud or domineering, rather it tastes very poised and precise. Very long finish with pronounced stony character. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold
Rated 97/100 James Suckling
This is pretty gorgeous, with a remarkably pure display of cassis, cherry puree and plum reduction flavors laced every so gently with threads of leather, alder and dried garrigue. The sleek iron spine is buried deeply on the finish, and there’s a lingering hint of warm stone as the fruit echoes through. Built to last. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah,Mourvèdre, Counoise, Vaccarèse, Terret, Muscardin, Clairette, Picpoul, Bourboulenc, Picardan and Roussanne. Best from 2024

Nelson Bros. Whiskey


NEW!




Nelson Bros. Whiskey Classic Bourbon...$29.99
93.3 Proof (46.65% ABV)
Mash Bill:  Corn, Rye, Malted Barley 
Andy & Charlie Nelson were determined to make the inaugural Nelson Brothers offering a bourbon for all occasions. This expert blend of exceptional high-rye straight bourbon whiskeys, well-aged in new, charred American oak barrels, was carefully crafted to deliver on that promise. Nelson Brothers Classic Bourbon is a vigorous, versatile pour, equally pleasing neat, on the rocks, or enlivening your favorite cocktail. There’s a reason we call it “Classic.”
“Aromas of shortcake, nougat, and spiced orange unwrap with each nosing. A well-mannered entry of toffee and peach pie glide in its silky body. The hint of key lime and chocolate-covered cherries keep the palate busy with a hedonistic deliciousness. Mid-palate notes of egg cream and maple pecan lead to prickly pepper on the finish, which is softened by disarming notes of oak at Pekoe tea.”
Rated 94/100 The Tasting Panel


Nelson Bros. Whiskey Reserve Bourbon...$49.99
107.8 Proof

The process begins with selecting the choicest lots of well-aged bourbon barrels in the Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery inventory.

Once singled out, the exceptional sources are expertly batched into a superior, high-proof blend, rich with rye, and redolent of dark cherry, caramel, and spice. The result is Nelson Brothers Reserve, a bourbon certain to startle and delight anyone who comes within sipping distance.

Blue Note Juke Joint Survivor Barrels
In June of 2019, the rickhouse that stored much of Blue Note’s inventory collapsed in a terrible summer storm, spilling thousands of barrels and millions of dollars into the muck and mud. Most of the barrels were destroyed by the incredible force of nearly 10 million pounds crumbling six stories to the ground.

We thought all was lost, but a special few somehow survived the disaster. Surviving the collapse, however, turned out to be only the beginning of the barrels’ journey.

For the next four months, the barrels were left exposed to the elements before the wreckage could be properly assessed and cleaned up. In these ensuing months, the sweltering summer heat bore down upon the barrels day after day, darkening the outside and forcing the bourbon inside incredibly deep into the oak. Several thunderstorms passed through as well, pummeling the barrels for days, causing their bands to later rust and break. As summer faded into fall, the nights grew colder, forcing the whiskey back out of the now worn oak. After the wreckage was cleaned up and every barrel was assessed, the company found that indeed some had survived.

Like these barrels, we have all faced incredible hardships across the course of the pandemic as the safety, stability, and comfort of the shelter we took for granted collapsed all around us. In an effort to celebrate life and perseverance, we have curated from our special lot of survivor barrels a select few barrels to release to the market under our new Blue Note Bourbon Uncut label. Going forward, not every barrel of Blue Note Bourbon Uncut will be a survivor barrel. Therefore, if you want to taste a truly rare bourbon with an even rarer story, we encourage you to try a bottle of this year’s 2021 survivor barrel release.
