TOP SHELF SELECTION:

Stonestreet Monument Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon - Sonoma. "A lovely Cabernet, ripe and delicious, yet complex enough to hold your interest. It's just beginning its journey in the bottle. Very dark in color, with hard tannins, it has an immense core of blackberries and cherries." 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast

WHITE WINE SELECTION:

Papa 2013 Godello - Spain. It possesses the texture of a classy white Burgundy, as well as lots of honeyed citrus, spring flower, quince and apricot characteristics. Medium-bodied with impressive texture, depth and richness, its finish is fresh, vibrant and exuberant.  If you haven’t yet checked out the top Godellos from Spain, it’s time you did.

Villa Maria 2013 Sauvignon Blanc - Marlborough, NZ. Aromas of fresh pineapple and gardenia blossoms will surely take you in that direction. Juicy fruit is a continuing theme with apricot, honeydew melon and ruby grapefruit. A ripe entry is full on the palate with a bright, clean finish. This bright and acidic wine is a MAW top seller.

Markham 2012 Chardonnay - Napa Valley. Freshly picked Bartlett pear and Golden Delicious apple aromas are highlighted by decadent vanilla and steely mineral notes. Rich and lush on the palate, the apple and pear flavors carry through.  This beautifully balanced Chard is a MAW top seller.

RED WINE SELECTION:

Claiborne and Churchill 2010 Pinot Noir - San Luis Obispo, CA.  This Pinot is a lovely, balanced wine with a translucent garnet hue and a potpourri of black cherry, red berries, dried herbs, anise and cedar, light “tea-leaf” tannins, and a long, lingering finish.

Boneshaker 2012 Old Vine Zinfandel - Lodi. This wine boasts flavors ranging from macerated blackberry and plum jam to sweet dark chocolate set against a velvety mouthfeel and a richly satisfying finish.

Silver Palm 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon - North Coast.   This Cabernet Sauvignon is dark ruby in color, with aromas of Bing cherry and cassis. Flavors of menthol, spice and oak with round firm tannins lead to a soft, silky, lingering finish.

We stock 80 craft beers and our beer list is changes every week. Octoberfest and pumpkin beers are starting to arrive!

With over 130 unique Bourbons, Ryes and Whiskeys (and a few Scotches!) You won't find a better selection of brown than at Market Alley Wines! And you just never know when some rare Bourbons will show up. We seriously have the widest selection you will find!
