Wine of the Week
Carreras Vineyard 2016 Zinfandel
Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, CA
Sale Price $27.99 / 750ml Bottle
Regular Price $35.99 / 750ml Bottle
Rick Moshin is a long time friend of State Line, and we love his wines. Some of you may have met him here, and we’re hoping you’ll get another chance to in the near future. A math professor by day, Rick established a small vineyard of Pinot Noir in the 80s and eventually a full winery in 2005. Originally famous for outstanding Pinot Noir, Moshin Vineyards now dabbles in many varieties, one of which we are featuring today: single vineyard Zinfandel!
The Carreras Vineyard Zin leans toward a leaner, more balanced style (which suits me just fine!) With bright fruit (think tart cherries) and light on the oak, this wine has really smooth tannins while retaining some oomph from its Cali-characteristic ABV. It definitely doesn’t hurt that it’s spent 5+ years in the bottle, and it is ready to drink tonight. This could be the one to make any Zin haters downright Zinfatuated.
Check out their gorgeous property and wines at:

PS- Save the Date! Rick will be at State Line to host a seated wine tasting of his selections. We will post once we have more details and the tickets become available!
Wine Sale Bin Special
Guigal 2019 Gigondas
Sale Price $24.99 / 750ml Bottle
Regular Price $34.99
E. Guigal is most known for being a grower and producer of vines and wines from the Northern Rhone of France. In the Northern Rhone Syrah runs the show, but the family Guigal was not content limiting themselves to only growing Syrah in the north.
Many large estate producers like Guigal (or Jadot, Chapoutier, Bichot, etc) own their own vineyards in addition to buying fruit from growers that don’t make their own wine. This encompasses quite a bit of Guigal’s production from the Southern Rhone. Negociant or not, these guys are putting out their best effort to represent themselves and the appellation.
Guigal’s Gigondas is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre from (avg) 40 year old vines that is aged in large oak foudre, partially new.
Their expression of Gigondas reminds me, structurally and flavor-wise, that E. Guigal is first and foremost a northern Rhone producer. The savory edges, fine tannins, and linear structure remind me of how they make their northern Rhone wines, but still speaks to the Grenache of Gigondas.

It came to me in a COVID dream…”Pour Decisions”! A title for the store’s events…so perfect, only reserved for highest level of events. If you’re not familiar, these events generally are led by the owner of a brewery taking about the trials and tribulations involved with their brewery. An intimate meet and greet with some food and drink, followed by a discussion with the host.
And to wrap up our first year of Pour Decisions, we’ve got a doozy of an event. We hope you’ll join us on Thursday, December 8th when Andrew Burman from Other Half Brewing stops by. The event starts at 6:00pm with the talk beginning at 6:30. This is a reservation only, pre-paid event and tickets are $40 per person.
Seating is limited so please don’t wait to reserve your spot. Additionally, we are encouraging attendees to bring in a new, unwrapped toy to donate to Toys for Tots. Those who do will receive an Other Half glass to take home as a token of appreciation!

The Latest Barrel Picks
Elijah Craig Single Barrel Barrel Proof Bourbon

We just received our single barrel pick of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof. This 8 year old bourbon is 132.9 proof and it has a ton of brown sugar, caramel, vanilla, with richness and complexity.
It’ll carry you through autumn nights, bonfires, and relaxing times.
Stellum Bourbon Barrel Pick
$49.99 / 750ml
We just received our barrel pick of Stellum Bourbon (SB LEO A8) and boy is it a sweet one. Sweet and spicy on the nose with cherry, vanilla, and brown sugar on the palate.
Classic bourbon notes with a rich and hearty mouthfeel. The mash bill is 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% barley malt. This whiskey averages 5 – 5 ½ years of age, is 118.96 proof, and is a steal at $49.99.
Stellum Single Barrel Rye
$49.99 / 750ml
Just in time for fall a new single barrel pick from the Barrell Craft Spirits family is this release from Stellum Spirits, this time a rye from their Serpens collection. Serpens Selections are made in the Spring and Summer of 2021 at 95% Rye & 5% Barley Malt.
This rye comes in at 115.12 proof and offers a sweet and toasty nose, rich and sweet on the palate, with a well balanced rye spice. Apple and pear are the dominant fruit flavors. A rye this rich and complex is a perfect offering for the fall.
Barrel Pick- Smooth Ambler Old Scout
Smooth Ambler Old Scout $49.99
John Little founded Smooth Ambler some number of years ago to provide employment opportunities for his fellow West Virginians. They didn’t just set out to make award winning whiskey. They also set out to create a source of pride for West Virginians everywhere.
To embrace the best of everything around them – the land, the people, and the resources – to create a business that would make a difference by providing opportunities for the people in their community.
Not too long ago we tasted through a selection of Smooth Ambler Old Scout barrels to purchase one for the store. We landed on a single barrel of this whiskey finished in West Virginia, sourced from MGP in Indiana, that is aged for six years.
At 56%ABV it has a nice spicy rye component and offers exceptional value in the single barrel bourbon category, really opening up after the addition of a little water. A good option for fans of bourbons with a higher rye content as the mash bill is roughly 60% corn, 36% rye, 4% malt.
