Glenmorangie The Quinta Ruban 14 year old Port Cask

The Quinta Ruban switched from 12 year to 14 year a few months back.
We have been having trouble keeping it in stock as it has been selling as fast as we got in on the shelf.
Finally have some that we can post now!

Glenmorangie The Quinta Ruban 14 year old Port Cask Finish...$46.99
Compare to $48.99 at Total Wine and More
A voluptuously silky spirit, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban is aged first in bourbon casks for smooth, fruity notes. We then finish this single malt whisky in ruby port casks to create velvety depth.

Our Quinta Ruban port cask finish brings chocolate boldness to Glenmorangie's renowned smooth style. Non chill-filtered for additional aroma and mouthfeel, it is savoured all over the world.

Hendrick's Midsummer Solstice Gin

Hendrick's Midsummer Solstice Gin...$34.99 / 750ml
What is Midsummer Solstice Gin?
The longer days and evenings call out for a light & crisp libation, with a playful lightness and wicked crispness.

This new flirtatiously floral incarnation of HENDRICK'S is perfect for day-casions, such as brunch and enjoying the summertime.
Why is MIDSUMMER SOLSTICE GIN so alluring?

Midsummer Solstice is a small batch, limited edition from HENDRICK'S GIN. Like a holiday romance or the lifespan of the mayfly, Midsummer Solstice is a poetic expression of temporality…once it's gone, it's gone forever. Let's celebrate the summer!

2018 Domaine Le Pive Gris Rose

2018 Domaine Le Pive Gris Rose...$17.99
30% Grenache Gris, 30% Grenache Noir, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc.
Nestled in the wilderness of the Camargue national park, Domaine le Pive is comprised of 113+ acres of organically farmed vines, with a modern, state of the art winery and historic Romanesque chapel at its center.
The plentiful sun, marine winds and distinctive sandy soils (“sables sauvages”) result in fresh, aromatic, personality-filled wines.
Tasting Notes: Offers aromas of pineapple, mango, white peach, and pear. Dry, crisp, and refreshing on the palate, with a long, lingering finish.
Serve With: Will provide immense enjoyment on its own, and pair well with a wide range of lighter fare.

Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet

Fruit for the Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet is primarily sourced from two of the valley’s most renowned sub-appellations: Oakville, located on a well-drained alluvial bench, and Stag’s Leap district, coming from our Wappo Hill Vineyard. You won't find a better Cabernet under $25
2015 Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon....$23.99
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a fabulous entry-level wine from Mondavi, not to mention one of the very best values readers will find in Napa Valley. Rich, succulent and inviting, the Napa Valley Cabernet captures the best qualities of the year in a forward, voluptuous style that make it impossible to resist young. Succulent dark cherry, plum, new leather and dark spice notes wrap around the juicy finish. This is an unreal level of quality for a wine at this price point

2016 Super Stars from Selbach-Oster

2016 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese...$37.99
The 2016 Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese * (AP 22 17) offers a deep, pure, cool and smoky bouquet of ripe and concentrated Riesling fruits along with crunchy slate plates. Silky, round and lush on the palate, with very fine tannins and lingering salinity, this is a gorgeously fine and salty Riesling with structure, finesse and tensioned length. Extremely stimulating and fine, with weathering slate on the palate. Pure and salty, just gorgeous.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Advocate

2016 Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling “Schmitt”...$55.99
The 2016 Zeltinger Schlossberg Riesling Auslese "Schmitt" (AP 24 17) is a very clear, fresh and precise on the nose, with very fine mineral aromas of crunchy slate. This reminds me a bit of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr in its finesse, perfectly ripe fruit and the finest possible expression of minerals in wine. This is the finest Schmitt I have ever had and surely one of the greatest 2016s from the Mosel. Its finesse and elegance are mind-blowing.

Maplewood Crushinator Session IPA

Maplewood Crushinator Session IPA...$9.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Hoppy. Tropical Citrus. Sessionable.
Have one, have many, Crushinator was meant to be crushed. This Session IPA uses a Vienna malt base and flaked maize to create great body and depth in a low ABV beer. The hops and yeast provide loads of tropical citrus and peach, with a hint of earthy spice.
Grain: Vienna | Caramalt | Flaked Maize
Hops: Simcoe | Mt. Hood | Apollo | Centennial | Warrior
Vitals: 32 IBUs | 6 SRM | 4.5% ABV

4 Hands Scale of Complexity Hazy IPA

4 Hands Scale of Complexity Hazy IPA...$9.99 / 4pk cans
Hazy IPA for you on this hazy day! Scale of Complexity is the newest addition to our IPA lineup. Light in color with a ton of haze, this beer is heavily-hopped with Heull Melon giving it notes of juicy peach and apricot. 

4 Hands / Shared Brewing Street Sodie

In stock now at Forsyth

4 Hands / Shared Brewing Street Sodie...$11.99 / 4pk
Street Sodie was brewed in collaboration with our friends at Shared Brewing. We dry-hopped this Hazy IPA with a ridiculous amount of Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops, giving it a huge, juice-bomb aroma without any of the bitterness.

Stone Brewing Enjoy By 07.04.19 Unfiltered IPA

Stone Brewing Enjoy By 07.04.19 Unfiltered IPA...$15.99 / 6pk cans
For this version of Stone Enjoy By IPA we thought: “We don’t always have a filter, so why should our beer?” By skipping a step and letting this devastatingly fresh, golden-hued double IPA go un filtered, the beer takes on a hazy appearance and its peach and tropical fruit hop aroma are intensified. So though it may sound like it, this missed step was no misstep.
Like the other IPAs in this series, this version is brewed specifically NOT to last.

Saldo The Prisoner Wine Company

2016 Saldo The Prisoner Wine Company...$24.99
Compare $29.97 at Total Wine and More
Saldo doesn’t fit in, but that doesn’t matter. When you’re from “here and there” (that’s what Saldo means in Latin), you don’t need to form to one, single place. That’s the funny thing about expectations—they’re made to be broken.

Gorgeous ripe, jammy, berry flavors dominate this full-bodied, smooth-textured wine. It smells like blackberries and black cherries, tastes so rich it's almost sweet, and fills the mouth from cheek to cheek with a chocolate-cherry flavor that lingers on the finish.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Enthusiast

Bargemone Cuvee Marina Rose

We have been trying to get this wine for years.  Not much comes into the United States.  This is the first time available in Missouri.

Great Packaging too!!!

2018 La Bargemone Cuvee Marina Coteaux d'Aix en Provence...$31.99
Citrus, strawberry and kiwi fruit appear on the nose of the 2018 Cuvee Marina Rose. A pale pink blend of 35% Grenache, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, and 10% Counoise, it's medium-bodied and fine, elegantly structured and long, without any of the leafy Cabernet elements but showing some of that variety's hallmark restraint.

Von Winning

2017 Von Winning Estate Riesling Trocken...$17.99
Fascinatingly, I get an attractively tart-edged, chewy impression of Maine blueberries, and the emphasis on sites with chalky underpinnings seems to be mirrored in a juicy yet lees-starched and crushed-stone-suffused finish that exhibits prodigious length for a wine of this price.
Rated 90/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

2017 Von Winning Deidesheimer Paradiesdarten Riesling 1er Lage Trocken...$31.99
Like several other von Winning 2017s, this delivers cress-like cut and Sauvignon-like aromatics – here peppermint and cilantro – on top of the hedge flowers and hyacinth I find typical of this site. Firm but generously juicy, the palate bursts with bright lime and delivers an infusion of flowers and herbs. A mouth-shakingly vibrant and refreshing finish barely but delightfully hints at sweetness, and takes a surprisingly Grüner Veltliner–like turn in its stimulating persistence of cress and white pepper.
Rated 92/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

2017 Von Winning Ruppertsberger Reireterpfad Riesling 1er Lage Trocken....$31.99
Smoky peppercorn, piquant peach kernel, nose-wrinkling ginger, boxwood and lemon peel as well as a toasty hint of oak make for a formidably forceful and complex nose. Happily, all of those aggressive notes are accompanied on a firm but subtly oily palate by juicy peach flesh and bright Meyer lemon. The finish activates the salivary glands and leaves the palate tingling and glowing in its evocation of salt, pepper, raw ginger and peach kernel. This ball of energy should prove fascinating to follow.
Rated 92/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

2017 Von Winning Langenmorgen Riesling Grosses Gewachs...$63.99
Peach kernel as well as toasted nuts and rye are piquantly signaled on the nose, accompanied by pungent green herbs; the gripping palate adds cheek-tugging persimmon. Fortunately, these are joined by an almost pulpy evocation of mirabelleand white peach, to which it seems (the wine being analytically almost bone-dry) as though sheer extract has conveyed a suggestion of sweetness. Iodine and crushed stone add mineral mystery to a profoundly layered, prodigious finish.
Rated 93-94/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

"GG"- Grosse Gewachs
(Great Growths of Germany)
For a wine to be labeled Grosse Gewachs the fruit must come from one of Germany's Grosse Lage Vineyards,a designation used only for Germany's very best vineyard sites - small, carefully demarcated areas with clear site-specific characteristics. Yields on these sites are limited to 50hl/ha. These wines are fermented to dry and represent the finest expression of Dry Riesling coming from Germany.

Fresh 2018 just arrived!
2018 Quinta do Regueiro Trajadura / Alvarinho....$13.99
70% Trajadura and 30% Alvarinho
Intensely mineral profile, with floral and orange peel nuances. Reveals a great purity in the mouth, of refined but austere style, serious, strong, and very sophisticated.
Recognized as one the foremost producers of boutique vinho verde in Portugal, Quinta do Regueiro is fast becoming synonymous with top shelf avant garde white wines.
Since 1988, Quinta do Regueiro has been using old-school methods to produce some of the most prized Alvarinhos in Portugal. Having started with one single vineyard in the estate's "backyard," today, Quinta do Regueiro is producing approximately 40,000 bottles of Alvarinho (and blends). With a style recognized by few and admired by all, these wines are all about the details...these, begin in the vineyard.

2017 Château Maison Neuve Sauvignon White Bordeaux...$13.99
100% Sauvignon Blanc from old vines
Fresh and lively! Great value!
This wine presents a pale yellow color that is very fresh on the nose with the classic Sauvignon characteristics of gooseberries. Dry and full bodied, its finish is long and mellow with just a hint of citrus. The wine is made with very low yields from 25 year old vines.

New Vintage just arrived!

2017 A La Carte Pinot Noir North Coast...$15.99
Our A La Carte Pinot Noir is sourced from cool climate vineyards in California's North Coast wine region and made by hand in our winery custom designed for small lot wines.
This wine shows excellent structure and balance. Flavors of fresh berries and vanilla. This is a fantastic value that is an amazing steal for under $20. Highly recommended Pinot Noir that actually tastes like a Pinot Noir.
Pinot Noir grapes excel in cooler climates and North Coast is one of the coolest climates in California, this region is home to more than half of of the state's wineries, including many of the most celebrated. Includes regions like Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Carneros. This is a great value and perfect summer red and a great food wine!

Cheese Features

This weekend we are featuring Old Amsterdam and Cypress Grove Midnight Moon at all four locations.

Come in for a taste!

Old Amsterdam Cheese
The story of Old Amsterdam is a tale of passion and dedication. This characteristic cheese has its origins at the end of the nineteenth century, when a quest for the rich, authentic flavour of yore would lead to one of the best-loved cheese products ever made.
Lambert started experimenting with his own recipes. However, it proved difficult to get the taste and quality just right. Luckily the family refused to give up, and after years of perseverance and experimentation they finally discovered the unique lactic acid and special maturation process that brings the specific character of this mature cheese to life. The exact recipe is a well-guarded family secret
This special cheese was given a special name: Old Amsterdam. The word old relates to the mature flavour but also to the traditional character of the cheese, whereas the use of English is a proud declaration of the export quality of the cheese. The conspicuous black rind was chosen to emphasise the timeless character of the cheese.

Cypress Grove Midnight Moon
Aged Goat Milk Cheese Made Exclusively For Cypress Grove in Holland
Aged six months or more, Midnight Moon is a blushing, ivory-colored goat cheese that’s nutty and brown buttery up front with a long caramel finish. Similar to a Gouda, as Midnight Moon ages, protein crystals form and lend a slight crunch to the otherwise dense and smooth cheese. Know someone who (gasp!) doesn’t like goat cheese? Encourage them to dip their toes back in the water with Midnight Moon, which has been known to convert even the staunchest of goat cheese critics.

Labatt Blue Citra Hoppy Session Lager

Labatt Blue Citra Hoppy Session Lager...$5.99 / 6pk 16oz cans
A hoppy session lager brewed with Citra and Mosaic hops for fresh, juicy aromas and flavors of tropical fruit. Crisp and easy drinking, it represents a new kind of refreshing.

Balvenie Single Malt Scotch 12 Year Sweet Toast of American Oak

Balvenie Single Malt Scotch 12 Year The Sweet Toast of American Oak...$59.99
Inspired to produce an even fruitier, sweeter Balvenie, Apprentice Malt Master Kelsey McKechnie had the bright idea to import Virgin Oak barrels from Kentucky. After deep toasting them at The Balvenie Cooperage they were filled with Balvenie aged in ex-bourbon barrels. The result is a delectably complex whisky with notes of candied fruit, coconut and delicate vanilla.

Possmann Frankfurter Apfelwein Hard Cider

Possmann Frankfurter Apfelwein Hard Cider...$8.99 / 4pk
Frankfurter Apfelwein - Frankfurter Apple Wine Possmanns flagship product that has made the company the most recognized apple wine producer in Germany.
The Frankfurter Apple Wine is a crisp, clear wine with the distinct harmony of a tart wine with fruit flavor of the apple. Fully fermented with 5.5% alcohol by volume, the apple wine contains no additives. It is extremely low on sugar, as well as very low on calories. With the natural fruit acids, the wine is very soothing and enhances digestion.

We’ve brewed two iterations of Imperial Grind, each featuring a different single origin coffee. Both versions offer a unique marriage of robust and slightly sweet imperial stout with bright cold-brew coffee flavor and aroma. Pick a favorite? No can do. We’re gonna want one of each.
