Avignonesi Poggettti di Sopra

Sangiovese 2017

This wine is characterised by grace and elegance. The bouquet is full and ethereal of ripe fruit and cherries in alcohol accompanied by typical nuances of the Mediterranean scrub such as lavender, thyme and wild mint. On the palate it has a very large and sweet opening. The silky tannin spreads a dense texture accompanied by a warm and lively body where notes of fresh coconut and sweet

Alain Jaume Grande Veneur

Rhone Blend 2019

Established in the northern part of Châteauneuf-du- Pape, in the commune of Orange, the Jaume family has been dedicated to the art of wine growing since 1826. Founded by Mathieu Jaume, the Domaine is now run by the 5th and 6th generations of Jaumes: Alain Jaume & his children Christophe, Sébastien, and Hélène.

Yields are low, or kept under control by green harvesting. Harvesting by hand, from pruning the leaves to grapes, ensures the wines produced are of great quality.
Aubry Montagne de Reims

Champagne Brut NV

One of the most original estates in Champagne, Aubry Fils is located in the village of Jouy-lès- Reims, in the western sector of the Montagne de Reims. Of the estate’s 15 hectares of vines, 12 lie in Jouy and the nearby villages of Pargny-lès-Reims, Villedommange and Coulommes-la-Montagne, all of which are classified as premier cru; the other three hectares are located elsewhere and are sold off to the négoce.
Twin brothers Pierre and Philippe farm parcels in the limestone and clay soils of Jouy, as well as sites in three other premiere cru villages.
Marimar Christina

Pinot Noir 2017

The Don Miguel Vineyard Named after the late patriarch of the Torres family, this sustainable vineyard is located in the Green Valley — the coolest, foggiest region of the Russian River Valley, only ten miles from the Pacific. The European-style high density of over 2,000 vines per acre provides low yields and requires intensive labor; but the vines live longer and the grapes acquire better balance and greater concentration.
Why ‘Cristina’? Named after her only daughter, Cristina, this wine is a barrel selection from a unique blend of our Pinot Noir clones that we feel best represent the terroir, or personality, of the Don Miguel Vineyard.
Farmstrong Wines

Claret 2017

Modeled after the classic “Clairet” of Bordeaux, which were Bordeaux red blends that were more moderate in tannin, often blended with Malbec to craft a softer wine, the Farmstrong Field Claret is a field blend of grapes picked on the same day, from the same family vineyard, and then co-fermented (all fermented in the same tank together). It’s a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec & Petit Verdot from the Johnson Family Home Ranch in Ukiah, CA
“I see these vineyards as treasures. As a winemaker it is my goal to preserve these treasures and share them as wines.” — Faith Armstrong, Wine Maker
Bodega Chacra Rio Negro "Barda"

Pinot Noir 2019

In Patagonia, a “chacra” is a special piece of land destined to pomology. At the same time, chacras are vital energy centers that provide us with the ability to connect with the whole universe, with everything living and vibrating. In its nourishment, in the marriage with every meal, wine is the companion of pleasure and sensitivity. Wine is intimate and touches all our senses. Chacra aims to enhance that connection.”

Anthem Winery

Sangiovese Blanc 2019

The Sauvignon Blanc Musque clone sings in this wine, showcasing a bright bouquet of honeysuckle and fresh flowers like jasmine and wisteria on the nose. These fresh scents lead to a full-bodied taste that is especially silky mid-palate due to the addition of 2.5% Semillon. The rich palate displays alluring notes of passion fruit, lemon merengue, and apple pie crust, followed by a long lingering finish. Only 92 cases were produced of this exquisite, handcrafted wine.

Rye

WhistlePig, a distiller and distributor of premium rye whiskeys, has seen the buffets of fortune but continues to grow at what chief marketing officer Jason Newell termed “a sustainable pace,” although that growth may be tested as the COVID-19 epidemic continues to strain the hospitality sector that has been a key partner in the company’s success.

Widow Jane 15 yr The Vaults

Bourbon

The 2021 release combines 15-17 year old bourbons that have been carefully selected from our stocks housed in Red Hook by our very own Lisa Wicker. The whiskey is finished in unique Adirondack Oak casks coopered with 42 month air- seasoned wood (50% longer than the standard 1-2 years). The extended outdoor maturation of the staves softens tannins and greenness in the wood yielding a one-of-a-kind flavor profile influenced by each season. The result is an intense whiskey with hints of cream, smoke, and spice.
“We work each day within this city, over these cobblestone streets, in Red Hook at the juncture of old and new New York City. Where things get done in their own way — a place that defines itself.”

High West High Country

American Single Malt

High Country™ American Single Malt made in our copper pot stills high in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. As admirers (and imbibers) of the famed single malt whiskies of Scotland, we wanted to create a uniquely crafted version of an American single malt. To provide the robust, flavor-forward profile more typical of American whiskeys and of our High West style, High Country™ American Single Malt is distilled “on-the-grain.” This means that we leave the grain in during fermentation and distillation, instead of filtering it out.
High West is Utah’s first legal distillery since 1870 and the world’s only ski-in gastro- distillery.
Barrell Gold Label

Bourbon

Barrell Craft Spirits Gold Label Bourbon is a blend of 16- and 17-year-old straight bourbons. Barrels for this release were selected from four different collections: cherry bomb barrels with a rich mouthfeel, nutty oak-forward barrels, high proof and high complexity barrels, and barrels with pronounced milk chocolate notes. The last group underwent a secondary maturation in toasted virgin American oak casks before being added to this intricate and seductive blend.”
“Our goal is to select and blend products that explore different distillation methods, barrels and aging environments, and bottle them at cask strength.”
