Bouchaine Pinot Noir, Carneros, Napa Valley

"The allure of Pinot Noir is its unpredictability – you never really know what you're going to get. There is a light mouth feel, high acidity and tart red fruit flavors. It's enigmatic, but not sweet. It's fruit balanced by earth and leather. It is spice and evergreen. There is a lot of space between the characteristic notes that speak of Pinot Noir like it used to be."

Bouchaine Chardonnay, Carneros, Napa Valley

"This wine comes from vines dating to Bouchaine's original plantings in 1981, growing on our windswept Napa Valley Carneros hillsides. It's a true expression of Chardonnay—bright, citrusy flavors graced with only the merest hint of oak. Shows classic Carneros lime and grapefruit styling. A hint of vanilla graces the mid-palate. Its fruit flavors, bright acidity, notable texture (a hallmark characteristic of Carneros Chardonnay), harmonize in an elegant, stylish wine. Straw gold in color, it dances in the glass like sunlight." Estate grown $24.00

Domaine de Majas Syrah

"Cotes Catalanes is one of the most important IGPs in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, covering the Pyrenees-Orientales department on the border with Spain. Vineyards cover the eastern foothills of the Pyrenees mountain chain, an area also used for the Cotes du Roussillon, Banyuls and Collioure appellations. The IGP exists to provide a geographic indication for wines that are made outside the existing AOC vinification requirements or permitted styles."

This Syrah offers black fruit, with black pepper notes, spicy hints and liqueur, and red fruit flavors. The nose produces scents of balsamic and liquorice notes. It displays a very pleasant freshness and balanced, and subtlety.

On the palate it has a good mouthfeel, light, medium-bodied, well-defined and with bright acidity. A slight chocolate bitterness which ends up being dominated its fruitiness (blackcurrants), the smoothness of its tannins and its great persistence. A very interesting Syrah. A rustic, yet elegant wine.

Food Pairing: Lamb, Beef, Hard Cheeses. $19.99

Domaine de Majas Rouge

"Cotes Catalanes is one of the most important IGPs in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, covering the Pyrenees-Orientales department on the border with Spain. Vineyards cover the eastern foothills of the Pyrenees mountain chain, an area also used for the Cotes du Roussillon, Banyuls and Collioure appellations. The IGP exists to provide a geographic indication for wines that are made outside the existing AOC vinification requirements or permitted styles."

The Rouge from Domaine Majas is a blend of old vine Carignage and Grenache. It displays a brilliant ruby colour with an explosive nose of blackberries and cherries. On the palate, this wine has intense black fruit concentration, astonishing minerality, and tannins that just melt in your mouth. Delicious and enjoyable

Try it alongside lamb, steak, mac and cheese, mushrooms, and roasted vegetables. $21.00

Alacre

With winemaking in his family blood, Vito Lauria decided to attend the University of Udine in Friuli where he obtained a degree in Enology in 2003. After stepping off the campus he worked at a number of wineries in northern Italy for a few years before returning to Sicily in 2005. Vito came home to open the old family winery in Alcamo, 30 miles west of Palermo.

The organically-produced Alacre is a blend of the indigenous Nero d'Avola grape along with Syrah. Alacre is full of dark, soft black fruit, hints of earth with a spicy, peppery finish. $25.99

Ex Umbris Syrah

We love everyting from Washington State vintner Owen Roe and the Ex Umbris Syrah is no exception! The label may be non-descript, but the wine is anything but.

"The 2012 Ex Umbris is a great expression of the bold fruit flavors from that year. Bursting with aromas of red plum, blueberry and pink peppercorn. The palate is filled with refreshing flavors of fresh summer blackberries, currant, and dark chocolate with noticibly structured acidity and silky tannins." $28.00

Laws Whiskey House is a Denver-based distillery producing authentic, local bourbon; no shortcuts and no compromises.

A four grain Bourbon must follow all the rules of a Bourbon, but it contains all three typical flavor grains that accentuate the corn base: barley, wheat and rye. To achieve such an uncommon expression of bourbon takes skill. These four "American mother grains" are painstakingly combined in exacting ratio in our cooker coming together to create a highly complex and flavorful whiskey. The results showcase the flavor of each grain without compromising balance.

This exquisite bourbon offers aromas of sweet corn, spicy rye, and chilis. Flavors of caramel and vanilla transition to rye and tobacco on the finish. $68.00
