Featured Wines of the Week
Desert Wind Cabernet Sauvignon, $20.19/750ml Our Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented in stainless steel tanks with an average of 10 days of skin contact. After alcohol and malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 14-16 months, with time on French oak to add additional complexity and enhance mouthfeel. The Cabernet Sauvignon expresses flavors of dark cherry, blackberry, black currant and vanilla. Medium acidity and moderate tannins lead to a silky, but structured finish.
Desert Wind Merlot, $21.79/750ml The dry desert landscape challenges both the vines and those who tend them, resulting in wines with complex flavors and the distinct sense of place known as terrior. This Merlot is sultry and smooth, with flavors of dark chocolate, bay leaf, fig, plum, and blackberry.
Chronic Cellars Purple Paradise, $17.89/750ml 70% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah, 10% Syrah, 4% Grenache. Pull up a hammock and catch a lucky break with Purple Paradise. He reminds you to just roll with it and never say no to a beachside getaway.
Paint your paradise purple with this Zinfandel-dominated blend that rolls out with jammy blackberry fruit, cherry cola, and the loveliest whispers of mocha and lavender. Alluringly deep and dark in color, the wine paints the perfect landscape for balanced acidity and mild tannins that floats on to a blissful finish.

Featured Spirits of the Week
Hendrick's Neptunia, $44.19/750ml The sea is everything! Inspired by the invigorating coastal air and the endless mysteries of the sea, HENDRICK’S Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie considered a bold possibility: expressing the glorious sensory delights of the sea, in a gin. And so began HENDRICK’S NEPTUNIA.
HENDRICK’S NEPTUNIA is a limited release that captures the magic of the sea, in a gin. Ms. Lesley Gracie's creation is as refreshing as her muse, the mighty waves that lash the Ayrshire coast. Infused with an exquisite blend of locally sourced coastal botanicals and with a remarkable crisp citrus finish.
Doc Swinson's Alter Ego Rye, $55.79/750ml Our Solera Aged Rum finished rye whiskey started as an experimental project when we found ourselves with an excess of 5+ year rums from Trinidad, Venezuela, and Jamaica alongside a number of recently dumped bourbon casks a few years ago. After dumping the aged rum we decided to employ the Solera aging method, a technique for blending and aging from the old world to create a rum cask rye whiskey. Our blend starts as two different rye whiskies from MGP. A 95% Rye 5% malted barley mashbill and a 51% rye 4% malted barley 45% corn mashbill both being 5+ years old. Once deemed ready we blend the two together to make a base spirit of about 73% Rye. This is then diluted from it's original cask strength of 120 to 103, the golden proof, before being added into the top row of the Solera. After a pull for bottling is made the whiskey is proofed down to bottle strength and rested before bottling.
