2018 Siduri Santa Barbara Pinot Noir

2018 Siduri Santa Barbara Pinot Noir...$21.99
Coming from a mix of vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County and mostly destemmed, the 2018 Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County offers a lighter ruby color as well as a beautifully pure, elegant, medium-bodied style that's already hard to resist. Bing cherry, wildflowers, violets, and a touch of spice all define the bouquet, and it's a great value in high-quality Pinot Noir.
Rated 91/100 Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 Siduri Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir comes primarily from the vineyards in the Sta. Rita Hills. Using a mix of whole cluster and destemmed grapes from these vineyards, they were blended in barrel until just the right mix was created. The result is upfront aromas of dried cranberry, Black Mission Fig, Chinese Five Spice and black plum, along with eucalyptus, white pepper, cumin and nutmeg. The flavors include fresh raspberry, black plum and blueberry followed by a smooth, broad texture with medium acidity.

Amador Whiskey Co. Bourbon Double Barrel Cabernet Sauvignon Barrels...$36.99
72% Corn * 13% Rye * 15% Barley
90 proof

Amador Whiskey Co. Double Barrel marries the best of Kentucky Bourbon with Napa Valley wine barrel finishing. Its journey began in the heart of Bourbon country, where we selected exceptional Kentucky Bourbon that came to life in new charred American oak barrels aged 3.5 years.”
We transported this treasure westward along the 38th parallel to California, where we finished the Bourbon with our family’s Napa Cellars Cabernet French oak barrels for 6 months and bottled at 90 proof. This double-barrel aging technique creates characteristics from the individual barrels that are then blended together to make exceptional Bourbon, far greater than the sum of its parts.

2020 Troon Vineyard Kubli Bench Rose...$22.99
A Biodynamic and Regenerative Organic Certified farm in Oregon’s Applegate Valley.
From the estate vineyard, this lightly tawny, straw-colored wine is 60% Tinta Roriz and 40% Primitivo. It's flavorful and fruity, with white peach, citrus and Rainier cherry. It's got some grip in the finish, showing some tannic power as it fades away with hints of herbal tea
Rated 90/100 The Wine Enthusiast

Orange Wine
2020 Troon Vineyard Kubli Bench Amber...$25.99
Amber (Orange Wine)
Biodynamic and Organic
"Gorgeous honey, light orange color. Bright aromas that just pop: limes, lemon and kumquat, followed up by clover, candied lemon, sea salt, this is just a spritzy, fun-smelling wine. Medium-bodied with bright acidity, and the texture is really fascinating, waxy but never heavy, and the balance is lovely. Chunks of lemon, pineapple and green melon fruit bounce off these flinty, mineral, chalky elements, and there’s some white tea and hints of tobacco as well. Just a lot to unpack. Don’t worry, this is not a feral orange wine, but a pretty, focused and fresh blend of Riesling, Vermentino and Viognier that spends three weeks on the skins. Well, done, Troon!"
Rated 92/100 Terroirist

The Kubli Bench Blend Series: We are excited to bring an Orange Wine to our series of Kubli Bench Estate blends that also includes a Rouge, Blanc and Rosé. Blending allows us to craft wines of great complexity and depth. Our Kubli Bench Amber is the more forward and fruity of our Orange Wines, which are made by making wines from white grapes using the same techniques as you would use to make red wine. The result is a very structured white wine with a distinct orange color. These are the most versatile of wines that can be served with almost any food. We love it as an aperitif with a broad range of appetizers. "Light amber in color, this wine smells of candied kumquat and wet leaves. In the mouth flavors of yellow plum, orange peel, vanilla and herbs have a wonderfully nice balance of fruity zing and earthier savory notes. Delightfully autumnal in quality thanks to the skin contact fermentation. A blend of 74% Riesling, 16% Vermentino and 10% Viognier" Alder Yarrow in Vinography

Troon Vineyard Piquette Methode Ancestrale...$22.99
The first question we get about this wine is always, “what is piquette?” It is many things, but basically it is frugal farmer fizz, a type of natural wine that has been made for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Those frugal farmers wasted nothing and used the juice and skins left after pressing the wines they would sell to make wine for themselves and their workers. Today we have recaptured that spirit, which fits in so well with our biodynamic style of agriculture. After pressing our estate white and rosé wines, there is still substantial juice left in skins as we press very gently. To that we add a touch of water, then let it macerate overnight in the press. The next day, we press that juice into a stainless steel tank, where begins a native yeast fermentation. Just before that fermentation is complete, we quickly bottle the new wine under crown caps to finish fermentation in the bottle. The resulting sparkling wine is a delight. Fresh and fizzy with bright fruit flavors. Piquette may have bubbles like Champagne, but our Piquette! is more about picnics and summer sipping - or better yet, gulping!

Chateau Pavie Macquin Saint Emilion

2009 Chateau Pavie Macquin Saint Emilion...$173.99
Hyperlush, with very creamy fig, blackberry and boysenberry flavors that stay well-defined, as charred apple wood, black tea and singed vanilla bean notes stride in behind. The long, authoritative finish drips with fruit and toasted spice, offering grip for balance. Very impressive. Best from 2014 through 2030.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Spectator
Very fruity aromas hint that this is a bright wine, its tannins shaded by the red and black berry flavors. The structure is integrated, showing ripe as well as fresh fruit with final flavors of chocolate.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Enthusiast
Very dark and dense with roasting coffee beans, black plum and prune aromas plus a touch of volatility. A self-confidently decadent wine with a distinct sweetness at the front, but a rather drying finish. This needs time to soften. Better after 2022.

Eden Mill Scottish Gin

Located right next to the famous St. Andrews Golf Course.
Packaged in nice Crock Bottles (which might be going away as their website shows new bottles?)

Including the new Gold Edition!

Eden Mill St. Andrews Golf Gin...$34.99 / 750ml
Dressed in a green jacket reminiscent of the Masters Champions, our Golf Gin is inspired by botanicals from golf courses all across Scotland
This botanically rich spirit incorporates ingredients that can be spotted around local grassland and coastal golf courses in Scotland. Inspired by the ocean view of St Andrews Links, we created a seaweed base, with fresh pine to transport us to windswept fairways, and quintessentially Scottish heather adding a floral undertone.

Eden Mill St. Andrews Original Gin...$34.99 / 750ml
Made from Fife’s indigenous seabuckthorn berry, in Original we balance tart flavours with a citrus nose and delicate midpoints.
This is a classic London Dry gin done in St Andrews style. And with a bonus 20cl in this bottle, it’s the perfect go-to pour. How will you enjoy yours?
KEY BOTANICALS: Juniper berries, Lemon balm, Citrus peel, Angelica and Seabuckthorn berries

Eden Mill St. Andrews Gin Hop...$34.99 / 750ml
We craft beer. So it was logical to create a hopped gin. But this citrusy, unique creation has a zesty freshness that is born of passion, not logic. Made from the renowned Australian Galaxy™ hop, we married brewing with distilling in this award-winning extra-strength gin.
KEY BOTANICALS: Juniper berries, Angelica, Coriander and Galaxy™ hops

Eden Mill St. Andrews Oak Aged Gin...$34.99 / 750ml
A throwback to a bygone era. In the century, the most popular gin made on our site was stored in vast oak barrels. Why re-invent the wheel?
Matured with oak-aged beer casks, this gin carries hints of vanilla and toasted caramel. 42% abv.
KEY BOTANICALS: Juniper berries, Angelica, Coriander, Oak (only oak aged for a few months, they do not want the oak to be subtle like one of the botanicals)

4 Hands Chocolate Milk Stout

4 Hands Chocolate Milk Stout...$9.99 / 6pk CANS
"Our Chocolate milk stout pours black as the night sky with aromas of dark chocolate, chocolate malt, and more chocolate. With a frothy tan head and a rich velvety mouthfeel our Chocolate milk stout is a perfect addition to the change of seasons. Brewed with over 3 pounds of cocoa nibs per barrel this beer is a chocolate lovers dream!" -- label

Toppling Goliath Intergalactic Warrior IPA

Canned 8/27
Toppling Goliath Intergalactic Warrior IPA...$13.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
India Pale Ale – 6.2% ABV • 60 IBU

Galaxy and Warrior hops join forces to create a beer with a bitter punch. Big body, bold flavor, with a boost of citrus rind and just a kick of spiciness in the finish, Intergalactic Warrior is an India Pale Ale worth fighting for.

Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay

2019 Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay....$39.99
Aromas of cooked apple, mango, lemon curd, praline and toffee. It’s full-bodied with crisp acidity and a dense, creamy texture. Flavorful with a solid core of ripe fruit and toasted nuts. Rich and generous. Solid structure. Drink or hold.
Rated 95/100 James Suckling
The 2019 Chardonnay Private Reserve is certainly the richest and most opulent of the whites here, although it shows a fresher, less oaky, toasty character than older vintages (which I think is what they’re looking for). Impressive stone fruits, white flowers, orange blossom, toasted almond, and a touch of minerality all define the bouquet, and this beauty builds nicely, offering full-bodied richness, a layered, opulent texture, terrific balance, and a great finish. It should keep nicely for 3-4 years, if not longer.

Penfolds Bin 311 Chardonnay

2015 Penfolds Bin 311$19.99
Regular price $39.99
A result of a warmer-than-average spring and a cooler-than-average summer in 2015, this has a very compelling array of ripe nectarines, peaches and mangoes on the nose with hints of lemon butter and lime zest as well as bath salts. The oak is assertive but well matched by the fruit intensity. The palate's framed in fine, fresh acidity, while white-peach and yellow-grapefruit flavors run the distance with smooth build and some gentle honey and praline. This is neatly balanced, cleanly flavored and very attractive. Drink now.

Browne Tribute Red Blend - amazing sale!

2013 Browne Tribute Red Blend....Our price…$9.99

Dark, focused and juicy in texture, with crisp tannins wrapped around a lively core of red pepper-accented black cherry and dark chocolate flavors. Lingers well. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.
Rated 90/100 Wine Spectator
This blend emphasizes merlot in its red-cherry and red-plum flavors, adorned with cabernet sauvignon’s scents of tobacco and saddle leather. It wears its oak like a velvet robe, with foresty tannins on the finish that invite a pairing with game, like an elk steak.

North Shore Distillery Mighty Gin

North Shore Distillery Mighty Gin Overproof...$39.99
Tasting Notes:  Mighty Gin is a higher-proof expression of our Distiller’s Gin No. 6 (110 proof rather than 90). It has rich, intense aromatics and flavors from the botanicals, and is intended for mixing into cocktails.
With rich flavors of juniper, fresh citrus and rich spices (coriander and cinnamon), accented by subtle hints of the floral botanicals, it tastes different from our other gins and makes distinctive cocktails.

Production Notes: We hand prepare a range of herbs and botanicals for each batch of gin, including juniper berries (of course), hand-grated fresh lemon peel, rich spices like cardamom and cinnamon, and delicate floral accents.
We infuse the botanicals into our base spirit for varying lengths of time depending on their particular characteristics, and then distill them through Ethel the Still using a slow, meticulous process that enables us to create fresh, bright flavors

Mighty Gin is 55% alcohol by volume (110 proof)
