St. Supery 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon - Napa Valley. Vibrant, youthful aromas of blackberry, plum and raspberry mingle with notes of chocolate laced with hints of vanillin and toasted oak. Fruit forward flavors burst with blackberry and black plum and are balanced by graceful, structured notes of oak combined with cocoa and a dusty sense of Napa Valley terroir. This is an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon that is finely textured with a solid frame.


Adelsheim 2012 Pinot Gris - Willamette Valley.  Crisp, bright flavors have always been the hallmark of Adelsheim Pinot gris. In this 2013, you’ll find hints of papaya, apples and pears. It pulls off the difficult feat of providing a gentle creaminess that lends a rich, mouthfilling texture and long finish, yet still impressing as a wine that’s crisp and clean.

Villa Maria 2013 Sauvignon Blanc - Marlborough, New Zealand. A pure expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, bursting with aromas of passionfruit, kaffir lime and gooseberry. It is powerful and juicy, displaying vibrant grapefruit notes with fantastic mid-palate weight, and a balanced acidity.

Jacobs Creek 2013 Reserve Chardonnay - Australia.  “This bright and inviting white exhibits lovely flavors of lemon curb, pineapple and pear on a taut frame, lingering expressively. Intense and stylish. “ 90 points, Wine Spectator.


Deadbolt Red Splash Blend - California. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Syrah and Syrah varietals. The wine features a red fruit aroma and flavors of black cherry, mocha and brown spice.

Rancho Zabaco 2012 Zinfandel - Sonoma. "A stunning wine made from Gallo’s holdings in Sonoma, Dry Creek and Lodi, this 2012 Zinfandel Heritage Vines (100% varietal) tips the scales at 15.26% alcohol. Displaying lots of pepper as well as full-throttle, pedal-to-the-metal intensity, briery, berry fruit and a big, juicy, succulent mouthfeel and finish, this Zinfandel offers a lot of wine and considerable flavor as well as authority. It is a sensational bargain." 90 Points, The Wine Advocate

1221 Cabernet Sauvignon Cuvee 2011 - 75% Sonoma, 25% Napa Valley.  It is silky, robust and bold. Concentrated fruit clusters produce intricate flavors and aromas. Visually, the color is a dense purple signaling the what is to come next. The aromas are reminiscent of black licorice and ripe black berries. The flavors carry the black fruits along with an ample amount of black currants, coffee, and a dusting of black pepper. The toasty oak is well integrated in this full-bodied wine. Quite delicious, silky, lush and multi-layered.

We stock 80 craft beers and our beer list is always changing.
