Il Gusto di Amalfi Mandarino Liqueur

Il Gusto di Amalfi Mandarino Liqueur...$31.99 / 750ml
Mandarin oranges of the ‘Marzatico’ variety, grown organically on the hillsides of the Amalfi coast, picked in season between January and April, peeled by hand, the peel immediately macerated in pure grain alcohol for 3-4 days. This is the purest expression of perfect mandarin oranges; the citrus here in the south of Italy is amazing, very different from what we see generally here in the US, and the quality of the fruit is the whole story with this kind of liqueur. Great digestivo; drink cold, but not iced. The liqueur may need to be shaken occasionally to mix in the lemon oils that rise to the top. Try a dash of it with good Prosecco, too.

Mommenpop Aperitifs

“It’s a joy to drink” - The Wine Enthusiast

Mommenpop started tiny - 23 cases tiny - as a kind of weird thing happening in Napa. In 2017, winemaker Samantha Sheehan and her husband Michael were on a spritz kick, drinking them almost daily over the course of a particularly hot California summer. Sam developed Mommenpop at home that year - just for her family and friends - as a less-sweet, dye-free alternative to aperitifs that she loves but that were just so sweet. She used locally-grown peak-season Seville oranges and a juicy base of her own Chardonnay. That first barrel got people talking and Sam and Michael’s summer drink ended up in Wine & Spirits Magazine later that same year as one of their Top New Spirits of 2017.

Mommenpop Ruby Grapefruit Aperitif...$31.99 / 750ml
Mommenpop Ruby Grapefruit is light, barely-bitter, and prickling with notes of fresh grapefruit rind and cherry blossom. You drink it feeling like the day is just endless. Refreshing on its own and doubly refreshing in a spritz, we love Ruby Grapefruit poolside, at the beach, or on a picnic blanket in the park. An approachable, easy-drinking aperitif.

Mommenpop Blood Orange Aperitif...$31.99 / 750ml

Mommenpop BLOOD ORANGE is refreshing, rich, and vibrant. It is citrus-forward and juicy, as though biting straight into a perfectly ripe blood orange. This flavor is peppery and floral, with a subtle warmth. What you might want to drink while you have fresh tomato sauce simmering on the stove and Miles Davis on vinyl. Delicious pre-dinner while snacking on olives, during dinner with your favorite pasta dish, and after dinner with some salt-studded dark chocolate.

Mommenpop Seville Orange Aperitif...$31.99 / 750ml
Mommenpop SEVILLE ORANGE is California sunshine in a bottle - warm and bright. Like liquid orange marmalade, it is pleasantly sweet and delightfully tangy. Seville Oranges have a brief growing season and are only available in California for a few short weeks - which makes this product even more special! Sevilles are prized for their peels, which are rich in aromatic oils, making them the ideal varietal for marmalade. We use the whole citrus, peels and all, to capture these amazing aromas and the sour juiciness of the flesh. Vibrant on its own, in a spritz, or in a variety of classic cocktails. “A pop of sun-soaked California citrus,” says Wine Enthusiast.

Sierra Nevada Sunny Little Thing Wheat Ale

Sierra Nevada Sunny Little Thing Wheat Ale...$10.99 / 6pk cans
Bask in the sunny little thing, a wheat ale made with citrus for radiant flavor that’s bold yet easy going, and balanced by a soft and smooth finish.
In Sunny Little Thing, we want that big ball of citrus to shine. That's why we pull back on the bitterness: no shade on this parade.  While there's plenty of oats and wheat malt for a smooth mouthfeel.  Sunny has hardly a dash of hops, allowing the fruit character forward. We infuse the citrus in bright tanks - think of it like dry hopping an IPA to boost aroma - using an exclusive blend crystalized juice squeezed right from real oranges and grapefruit

Sinegal Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley


2018 Sinegal Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley...$89.99
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is positively stellar. Vibrant and energetic, the Reserve dazzles with its purity. Blackberry jam, chocolate, licorice, menthol, spice and graphite infuse the Reserve with tremendous intensity. Just bottled about a month before this tasting, the Reserve is a bit quiet today, but its breeding and pedigree are both evident. The core for the Estate is a block of Clone 7 Cabernet from the front of the ranch. This is the first vintage to include a dollop of Petit Verdot (8%).

Bodegas Rey Fernando de Castilla was founded in 1837, purchased and revitalized in 1999 by Jan Pettersen (a Norweigian with 15 years at Osborne). Jan also took over the cellars of Jose Bustamante next door and quickly established Fernando de Castilla as one of the region’s finest small, independent sherry houses. The company specializes in natural, unblended and unfined products as supreme examples of the ancient winemaking traditions of the Jerez region. The vineyards (farmed without pesticides or herbicides) and winery are all located in Jerez, all sherries are estate bottled. 
JEREZ || The DO Jerez-Xérès-Sherry was founded in 1933, Spain’s first. It is situated in the province of Cadiz, where the wines are made in the traditional way, based on the Solera system of dynamic aging on butts (barrels). The best vineyard sites are on the famous ‘albariza’ soils, a white limestone marl; which are deep, with excellent water retaining properties. These are ideal conditions for vine cultivation since they are able to reserve the rainwater for the dry, hot summer months.
