Wine of the Week

Weingut Lagler

2017 Riesling Smaragd Ried 1000 Eimerberg

Club Card Price $29.99 / 750ml (Normal Price: $39.99)

The Lagler family has been living at the same estate in the town of Spitz in the western Wachau of Austria since 1789. It wasn’t until the 1970’s that they decided to stop selling their grapes to other growers and began making their own wine for commercial production.

The Smaragd Riesling comes from the 1000 Eimerberg vineyard where the vines are 45 to 55 years old. The name of the vineyard refers to an old measurement as the vineyard would yield 1000 buckets of grapes. 

It’s easily the best white wine that I’ve tasted all month (summer?). This Riesling is totally dry, full bodied, savory, and complex with incredible richness – true to Smaragd style. 

Drink it now or cellar it and drink it later. Drink this with schnitzel, schnitzel adjacent foods, fried chicken, or all by itself.

-Joe Buchter, Import Wine Buyer

State Line Liquors Rated #3 Bottle Shop in the WORLD!

Max's Taphouse (J.M. Giordano / February 14, 2015)

Max’s Taphouse (J.M. Giordano / February 14, 2015)

Feb. 17, 2015 –By Steve Fogelman, City Paper. “Last month, just two establishments in Maryland were honored as “Top Places to Have a Beer in the World” by the crowd-sourced RateBeer.com annual survey. Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore and State Line Liquors in Elkton made the cut, which makes sense, as both are hallowed Free State beer grounds for aficionados. I caught up with the owners of both businesses by phone while they were coincidentally on separate and simultaneous vacations in Florida earlier this month. The traits these businesses share, such as family and dedication to the craft scene, are the underpinnings of their success… READ the FULL ARTICLE at:

Maker’s Mark Single Barrel Stave Select $69.99

This was one of the most interesting bourbon selections we have ever done, as we picked ten staves from four different flavors to finish a barrel of Maker’s Mark Cask Strength in. It was aged eleven weeks with the staves before bottling and we are very pleased with the results, a truly unique bourbon bottled at 111.3 proof with no water added. This is quite different from a normal wheated bourbon with a nice sweet caramel flavor up front with spicy char notes on the finish.

The Presidential Dram

Bourbon Barrel Pick

Mashbill – 75% corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley
Bottled at cask strength 113.16 proof Non-Chill Filtered

$49.99 / 750ml

We jumped at the opportunity to pick a barrel from Proof & Wood, a name which may not mean much to some of you. They bottle a line of bourbons called the DC Collection (The Senator, The Ambassador, The Justice, Etc.) that are sourced from MGP in Lawrenceburg, Indiana; the distiller for many iconic brands.

This barrel was distilled on May 13th, 2015 and bottled in late January of this year, making it nearly five years in barrel.

The initial flavor is caramel and graham cracker that evolves into tobacco, cinnamon and nutmeg; with a pleasant balanced finish. We hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

Kilchoman Slightly Peated Sherry Single Hogshead $134.99

Kilchoman Slightly Peated Bourbon Single Hogshead $134.99

These two casks were selected by the iconic Jack Rose Dining Saloon in Washington, D.C., a stop that should be on every whisk(e)y drinkers list. They were kind enough to allow us to buy some for our customers and we are thrilled to offer them, as Kilchoman is our favorite farm to bottle Islay distillery!
