Omnipollo Devin The Dude's Brew Pilsner

Omnipollo Devin The Dude's Brew Pilsner...$8.99 / 4pk 12oz
Inspirations for our beers come from everywhere. Sometimes it’s like the universe is telling us there needs to be a beer. It sounds pretentious and, in a way, it is… But with the release of this Omnipollo German style pilsner we are in the center of a vortex of incidences telling us that all we want to drink is a truly well-crafted pilsner.

My own pilsner journey started long ago, and pilsner is still my favorite style of beer, but it totally seems like the right time to celebrate this style. The signs are there. Like when your favorite rapper doesn’t enjoy the IPA you had planned to brew in his honor, saying “none of that fruity stuff”. Or the fact that for the last couple of years, all brewers at festivals will not be found drinking the latest hype brew, but instead gathering at the tap of whoever brought a classic pilsner.

A pils is sort of like your favorite t-shirt, you wear it often, but it is never a loud statement. So we raise our (pilsner) glass to you, and hope you will enjoy Devins German style pilsner and the rest of our pilsner journey. Be curious, be classic.

Brandlin Mount Veeder - amazing!!!

Amazing Mount Veeder Wines!
Amazing prices!
Very limited!

2014 Brandlin Mount Veeder 
Estate Cabernet Sauvignon...$34.99
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $59.99Brandlin's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is deep, powerful and seductive. This is an especially dark, dense, fruit forward style for Mt. Veeder, but it works. Dark red and black stone fruit, spice, leather, smoke and licorice give the 2014 much of its distinctive, brooding personality. At the same time, polished tannins give the wine plenty of near and medium-term appeal.
Rated 90/100 Antonio Galloni Vinous Media

2011 Brandlin Mount Veeder Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum...$74.99 / 1.5ltr (magnum)
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $99.99
Solely from Mount Veeder, this Cabernet Sauvignon has small percentages of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The trio combine to offer currant and cranberry around a complex, woody core of oak, black tea and herbs.
Rated 90/100 Wine Enthusiast

"Smooth and juicy with lovely ripe plum and black raspberry; elegant and showing subtle oak, spice and balance; long and vivid."
Rated 93/100 Anthony Dias Blue, The Tasting Panel

2010 Brandlin Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon The Bootleg..

Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $99.99
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon The Bootleg comes across as relatively soft and supple for a Mt. Veeder Cabernet. Plums, black cherries, mint, spices and sweet floral notes all wrap around the juicy finish. This up-front, accessible Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well pretty much right out of the gate.-- Antonio Galloni
Rated 90/100 Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate

2012 Brandlin Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon Henry's Keep..$49.99
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $99.98
The sexy 2012 Proprietary Red Blend Henry’s Keep, a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, is a beauty. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of Asian plum sauce, blueberries, cassis and a chocolaty component that emerges with coaxing. Full-bodied, rich, savory, complex and delicious, it should continue to age nicely for 7-10 years.
Rated 91/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
A dense and structured red with currant, blackberry and licorice character. Full-bodied and chewy yet polished. Give it time. A blend of mostly cabernet sauvignon, malbec, petit verdot and cabernet franc. Better in 2017.
Rated 93/100 James Suckling

2017 Bench Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County

This is an impressive Cabernet for $20.

This one is a step above the 2016 vintage!

The quality was outstanding...They showed the vintage’s high level of be of excellent overall quality..." - The Wine Enthusiast on 2017 Sonoma Wines

2017 Bench Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County...$19.99
Suggested retail is $24
Deep purple in color and aromatically expressive with ripe, black plum currant coulis and minerally graphite. The structure is firm with soft, elegant tannins and mouth-watering acidity. Flavors of black forest fruit and earth, dark cocoa, mint and anise are meld together on the finish.  Bench Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced exclusively from benchland vineyards in Sonoma County, where valley floor transitions to foothills. I prefer these vineyard sites as they produce concentrated and intense fruit that results in an elegantly balanced wine with depth, beauty and complexity.
