The Keeper is an incredible value; it's plush and full-bodied, and is approachable now but will age beautifully. Perfectly ripened grapes give this wine notes of savory spices, cigar box and black fruits. On the palate, a rich mouthful of blackberry, cassis and black tea commingle with a velvety, luscious mouthfeel and a long, generous finish. $18.00
Armand de Brignac 'Ace of Spades' Champagne is the darling of celebrities, sports stars, and entertainers alike. And for good reason!
The classic Brut Gold Champagne is marvelously complex and full-bodied, its bouquet is both fresh and lively, with light floral notes. On the palate, the Brut Gold has a sumptuous, racy fruit character perfectly integrated with the wine's subtle brioche accents. The Champagne's texture is deliciously creamy, with great depth paired with a long, silky finish. Our Brut Gold is pressed from a perfectly balanced blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier wine. Armand de Brignac is an extremely small production Champagne and very limited in quantity.

Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!
Every third Thursday of November, wine consumers around the world wait with bated breath for the arrival of the Beaujolais Nouveau. A tradition which extends back to the 1960s, the arrival of Beaujolais Nouveau is a celebration which signifies the release of the first wine from the most recent vintage. Beaujolais Nouveau was harvested only weeks ago, crushed, vinified, bottled, and shipped in time for the traditional arrival date. A perfect accompaniment to Thanksgiving dinner.
Vinified in the traditional manner and in compliance with the Beaujolais wine, it comes from the south of the Beaujolais area, named the Pierres dorées. This wine has a deep red color with garnet reflections. A nose of fresh fruit typical of Beaujolais Nouveau. On the palate, the attack proves a good liveliness with fruits acidulated flavors, followed by a pleasant sensation of freshness and good length. $15.00
