Sale Bin Special
La Antigua Clasico 2012 Rioja Crianza
Sale Price – $14.99
Regular Price – $21.99
In another right place, right time situation we found ourselves able to scoop up the last of the 2012 vintage of La Antigua’s Rioja Crianza at a very fair price.
The wine is made of Tempranillo (70%), Graciano (20%), and Garnacha (10%) from vines planted between 1940 and 1955 at about 700m of elevation. The wine is then aged for 24 months in a mix of French and American oak, followed by bottle aging.
At just over ten years of age, this wine has really hit its stride, with seamless texture, mild tannins, and a certain stoniness to act as a foil to the subtle cranberry red fruits.
Get it while we got it, then it’s gooooone.
-Joe Buchter, Import Wine Buyer
Wine of the Week
Lemelson 2017 Jerome Reserve Pinot Noir
$29.99 Club Card Member Special
Regular Price $49.99
Very Limited Availability!
From a long established family winery in the Willamette Valley, utilizing a gravity flow system to preserve the aromatics and delicacy of the Pinot Noir grape, we were able to purchase the rest of the 2017 vintage for this bottling.
This wine is sourced from 3 appellations in Oregon: Dundee Hills, Yamhill-Carlton, and the Chehalem Hills. The vineyards are predominantly Pommard and Wadenswil, the original Wente Vineyards clone, with a little Dijon clone. Only the top 15 barrels are selected for this bottling.
The nose is bright and vibrant with blackberries and red berries. Cocoa, black tea, allspice, forest floor on the palate. Mid-palate lush flavor, silky smooth tannins. Beautifully balanced and elegant – a great treat at a great price!

The Latest Barrel Picks
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.
