Domaine du Pegau Plan Pegau Estate Bottled


From the amazing estate of Pegau!
This is their most amazing value!!



Domaine du Pegau Plan Pegau Estate Bottled....$22.99

Made from 4 amazing vintages!
Lot#17-18-19-20
  • Grenache 30%
  • Syrah 30%
  • Merlot 20%
  • Others varieties 20%
Plan Pegau is crafted by Laurence Féraud, owner of the iconic Domaine du Pegau. Produced from estate-grown fruit planted just outside Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this distinctive, multi-vintage blend is loaded with character and reflects the hallmark personality and style Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape.  Never fails to be enjoyable. It is a Vin de France, a blend of 3-4 years aged in different vats, the research of a blend of fruit, spices and complexity. This atypical cuvée and symbol of authentic know-how never ceases to conquer the palate of amateurs and professionals. Over the years, it has learned how to express the richness of the terroirs on the edge of the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation. An intensity of the fruit mixed with a hint of fine oak character, the Cuvée Plan Pegau can be enjoyed on all occasions.

Previous release review (no release on the current edition)
Produced from Pegau-owned plots outside Châteauneuf du Pape. The multi-vintage blend includes varieties not entitled to be grown in Rhône appellations (like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon), but also includes about one-third each of Grenache and Syrah. It offers strongly floral-herbal and sometimes leathery elements that mark it as Pegau, silky layers of dark fruit and a dry, savory finish. If you're curious about the Pegau style but don't want to drop the coin required for the flagship CdP, Plan Pegau is the way to go.

2019 Bench Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County

Jeb Dunnuck on 2019 Sonoma Wines
"In a nutshell, 2019 is another strong vintage that fits nicely alongside the trilogy of 2016, 2017, and 2018 in terms of quality....the vintage is a buyer’s paradise, offering beautiful wines from all appellations and at just about every price point. The reality is that you will have to work to find a bad wine from Sonoma these days" -- Jeb Dunnuck

For the past 3-4 years this has been one of our top selling Cabernets!
2019 Bench Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County...$22.99
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.

The 2022 Bourbon County Stout lineup that we will have available....
Goose Island Bourbon County Stout - 4pks and pints
Every year since its inception in 1992, we strive to honor the original Bourbon County Stout recipe. And, 30 years later, we continue Gregory Hall’s legacy and passion for making the best beer possible, starting with the best barrels the bourbon trail has to offer. This year, our Imperial Stout is aged and blended from freshly emptied bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill, Four Roses, Wild Turkey, and Buffalo Trace distilleries. Expect flavors of vanilla, dark chocolate, toffee, molasses, almond, and dried fruit.

Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee Stout
In 2010, we released the first-ever Bourbon County Stout variants and our Goose Island Bourbon County Coffee Stout has been a fan favorite ever since. For the first time since 2017, we brought back a coffee variant this year in partnership with our friends and neighbors Intelligentsia Coffee. Intelligentsia relies on Burundi for some of the cleanest, sweetest coffees in the world that ultimately complement the quality and tasting notes of Bourbon County Stout. The specific coffee blend combined with our Imperial Stout is called Turihamwe, which means “together”, and is a perfect tribute to all the hands that go into making it – from the female coffee farmers in Burundi that produced the blend, to our friends at Intelligentsia, the first brand we worked with on a variant back in 2010. The result of this “togetherness” is another exceptional coffee variant featuring rich chocolate, coffee, and caramel flavors that will appeal to coffee drinkers and beer lovers alike.

Goose Island Bourbon County Biscotti Stout
At Goose Island, we believe ideas and inspiration can come from anyone in the Goose family, and our Biscotti Stout is a perfect example that came from our very own HR team. Inspired by the Italian desserts of her childhood, Jill Cerone, People Manager at Goose Island, dreamed up this variant after grabbing a box of chocolate-dipped biscotti from her cabinet. Working with the brewing team, Jill brought the flavor to life with notes of anise, marzipan, cocoa, and buttered toffee. The biscotti enhances flavors already found in our Bourbon County Stout and adds strong notes of nostalgia from your Italian grandma’s kitchen. One sip and you’ll be reminded of pizzelle cookies, Easter Pane di Pasqua and, of course, almond biscotti.

Goose Island Bourbon County Sir Isaac’s Stout
For years, brewers at Goose Island have brainstormed ways to incorporate figs in Bourbon County Stout, but faced a daunting task due to their subtle flavor. After fresh thinking from members of the Goose Island E-commerce team, Melissa Alleguez and Ryan Hubona crafted a recipe inspired by Melissa’s childhood memories of stealing fig cookies out of her grandma’s cookie jar during her summers on Lake Michigan. And thus, the fig cookie and graham cracker-inspired Sir Isaac’s Stout was created. Highlighting the dried fried profiles extracted from the bourbon in the barrels, our brewers used Black Mission figs (10,000 pounds of them, to be specific) to create this variant resulting in characteristics of dried fruit, honey, molasses, and citrus, all reminiscent of the classic fig cookie sold on shelves today.

Goose Island Bourbon County 30th Anniversary Reserve Stout
Aged in Bookers, Knob Creek, Basil Hayden and Baker's barrels
We created a special 30th Anniversary Stout to pay homage to the serendipitous union between Gregory Hall and Booker Noe that then led to subsequent years, variants, and traditions - from Black Friday lines to bottle shares and more. Going back to the inception of Bourbon County Stout, the 30th Anniversary Stout is aged from a blend of Jim Beam barrels from their Small Batch Bourbon Collection barrels. Each of the remarkable bourbon barrels offer characteristics unique to each bourbon's distinct nuances. They are then blended together for a complex and balanced expression that celebrates the heritage and legacy of both brands. And, as history would have it, Jim Beam launched their first-ever Small Batch Bourbon Collection 30 years ago. This 30th Anniversary Reserve Stout is a culmination signifying the historical, groundbreaking shifts in both the bourbon and beer industries from two visionaries all those years ago. Both the concept of small batch bourbons and bourbon barrel-aged beers have changed our respective drinking communities forever, and the 30th Anniversary Stout is a celebration of all the people that have enjoyed, worked on, and been a part of the Bourbon County Stout brand over the years. Expect notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, cherry, and almond. We’re excited to raise a glass to this extraordinary 30-year-old history and craftsmanship.

We only received 12 bottles of this one - it was released through the BRC ONLY
Goose Island Bourbon County Two-Year Barleywine Reserve - Old Fitzgerald
For this Reserve, we worked with our friends at Old Fitzgerald to obtain three exceptional sets of barrels of varying ages from the distillery's Old Fitzgerald’s Bottled-In-Bond Decanter Series. This Reserve offers us a rare opportunity to highlight the distinct characteristics of our rich Barleywine aged in 14-year, 16-year and 17-year-old barrels of an amazing bourbon pedigree. Bringing back our classic English-style Barleywine for the first time since 2018, we knew this was going to be something special. Our Two-Year Barleywine Reserve evokes the rich intricacies from that of Old Fitzgerald’s Bottled-In-Bond Series for a velvety taste of rich malt, entwined with notes of toffee, cherry, vanilla, fig, and almond.




How it started!
In 1992, former Goose Island brewmaster Gregory Hall wanted to brew something truly unique for the brewpub’s 1,000th batch, he just needed some inspiration. Then a chance encounter between Greg and Jim Beam’s Booker Noe led to Goose Island acquiring the barrels for what was to become the world’s first bourbon barrel-aged beer, Bourbon County Stout.

Today, Bourbon County Stout is not only a local favorite but globally known for setting the standard of barrel-aged stouts with continued innovation. This year, we commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the extraordinary Bourbon County Stout history with a lineup sure to excite new and diehard fans alike.

Kentucky Owl St. Patrick's Edition Bourbon...$119.99
100 proof
Release #1
Collaboration by Louise McGuane (Irish Whiskey Bonder) and John Rhea (Master Blender)

"100-proof limited release with comforting and buttery aromas of resin, baked peaches and caramel. It shows superb clarity through its sweet flavors of wood, roasted nuts, cream and cereal. Perky notes of nectarine, patchouli, and loose tobacco are buoyed by the finish fo peach nectar"
Rated 97/100 The Tasting Panel

A blend of Kentucky Straight Bourbons varying in age from 4-8 old each
coming in with their own unique flavor characteristics. Rich caramel and vanilla from some more rare well aged Bourbons. Spice and fruit from Bourbons with higher rye content, and a feel of sweetness and citrus from Wheated Bourbon.

Kentucky Owl Bourbon was founded in 1879 by C.M. Dedman on the banks of the Kentucky River. The distillery produced “The Wise Man’s Bourbon” for decades until its long and storied history was interrupted by Prohibition. Fortunately, the Kentucky Owl brand was relaunched with Batch #1 in 2014.

Each Bourbon batch is made from some of the finest bourbon in bottled at 118.8 Proof to bring out the most desirable bourbon flavor. Every new batch is an original with its own unique taste profile, carefully crafted Kentucky and by Master Blender John Rhea. These highly sought after, artfully blended, craft bourbons have become an instant sensation and every batch sells out almost solely by word of mouth.


Louise McGuane (Irish Whiskey Bonder)
Irish whiskey production has long been an all-male industry, but now, with sales soaring worldwide, Ireland has its first woman heading a new label, J.J. Corry Irish Whiskey. Louise McGuane wanted to bring back the tradition of Whiskey Bonding, becoming the first Whiskey Bonder in Ireland in well over 50 years. Her bottlings have already won numerous awards, including a Gold Medal in the Irish Whiskey Awards and the SF World Spirits Awards. I conducted an interview with McGuane to find out about edging into the industry and her intention to be different from her now numerous competitors. -- Forbes

The Bouquet is soft and grainy, incorporating heady scents of caraway and wheat toast. Jasmine, ginger, and a bite of black pepper show depth of character. On the midpalate, a burst of apricot is guided along ty mineral undertones. The aftertaste is woodsy, mature, and confident
Rated 94/100 The Tasting Panel

#17 Whisky of the Year - 2021 Whisky Advocate
The first Kentucky Owl release under master blender John Rhea, this bourbon drops the high proof and price point typically associated with Kentucky Owl for something more approachable—a blend of bourbons ranging from 4 to 8 years old. Green apple candies, cinnamon stick, buttered popcorn, and sage on the nose. Ginger spice and sweet bubble gum notes intertwine on a creamy palate along with blackberry tart and cocoa powder. Candied raspberries on the finish are matched with a sustained spice that lingers. —Ted Simmons

Opus One Overture Red


Opus One Overture Red....$129.98
compare to $149.97 at Total Wine and More in STL
"2nd label of Opus One"
(Bottled 8/19/21)
A timeless expression of our estate vineyards, Overture is full bodied but approachable in its youth. Overture shows generous dark fruit aromas and flavors with a soft, supple mid-palate.
Beginning in 1993 and following in the tradition of great Bordeaux estates, Opus One created a fine second wine called Overture. Every acre of the estate vineyard is meticulously farmed with the attention to detail and singular focus required to produce Opus One. This scrutiny carries through the blending process and certain lots will not be included in the final Opus One blend. Yet, when these lots are afforded additional time in barrel along with the added flexibility of blending across multiple vintages, the final wine achieves a remarkable elegance and complexity.
