Dolce, Late Harvest 2006 "98pts"27.50

No. 6 Wine Enthusiast top 100 With this wine, Dolce cements its status as California's most consistently great dessert wine. 80% Sémillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc, and the grapes were infected with the botrytis, resulting in the fantastic sweetness. Devastating in apricot, orange, pear, honey, vanilla and créme brûlée flavors, in an unctuous, viscous texture, with wonderfully clean acidity, it's certainly one of the greatest sweet California wines in memory. $27.50 | $110.00

Arrowood, "Late Harvest", White Riesling, Alexander Valley 2005 "95pts" WE

It actually pours slow from the bottle, like honey. With 17.4 grams of residual sugar, it's decadently, deliriously sweet, but sugar is not its only charm. There's a fabulous flood of apricots, pineapples, peaches and limes, concentrated to their essence and geléed, enriched with pure vanilla and clover honey and dusted with cinnamon. Doesn't that sound good? $12.50 | $50.00

Mondavi, Moscato D'Oro 2011 "93pts"11.00

Wine List

Chardonnay

Aubert, "UV-SL", Sonoma Coast 2009 "98pts" RP150.00

Tasting like a liqueur of crushed rocks intermixed with honeysuckle, baked apples, brioche and lemon butter, it is stunningly rich and medium to full-bodied with zesty acidity, purity and texture. A fabulous Chardonnay

Kistler, "Vine Hill", Sonoma Coast 2009 "95pts" RP150.00

Scents of lemon, almonds and pastry emerge from the glass. Immediately flavors of pear, buttered citrus, lemon oil and wet stone characteristics emerge. This is yet another dazzling wine from Kistler endowed with tremendous depth, detail and classiness

Domaine Leflaive, Puligny-Montrachet, 1st Cru "Clavoillon" 2008 "94pts" WE120.00

Beautiful lemon-scented wine, balancing rich butter and apricot flavors with intense, pure acidity. The wine at this stage is toast and fruit, still coalescing into its long-term future

Evening Land, "La Source", Eola-Amity Hills, OR 2010 "95pts" WE/W&S110.00

Gorgeously ripe fruit packs this wine with tropical flavors of cantaloupe, apricot and papaya. Lemony acid keeps it fresh and vibrant, and the overall texture and complexity are a revelation. This Chardonnay elevates the grape to new heights in this part of the Willamette Valley

O'Shaughnessy, Oakville, 2011 "95pts" AG96.00

This Chardonnay is gorgeous. White flowers, mint, apricots and lemon oil all meld together in the glass. The style is bright and floral, with lovely depth and no sense of heaviness. It does a great job of capturing Napa Valley richness while maintaining a gorgeous sense of poise and balance. Done in a combination of oak and steel, with native fermentations but blocked malolactics

Hartford Court, “Stone Côte Vineyard”, Sonoma Coast 2013 “96pts” WE92.00

The wine displays the firm, acidic minerality of that cool, foggy region. It has fantastic limpidity. The oak is remarkable for the purity of vanilla and smoky honey, while the underlying flavors of Meyer lemons, pineapples, nectarines and kumquats are decadently good. A masterpiece of Chardonnay

Gary Farrell, “Russian River Selection”, Russian River 2015 “95pts” WE 80.00

No. 1 Wine Enthusiast top 100 of 2017
A scent of French butter offers an immediate invitation to this excellent wine. Austerity on the palate gives way to a juicy core of invigorating tangerine and white peach flavors. The gravelly minerality on the midpalate finishes softly and with ease

Zepaltas, “Babushka”, Keefer Ranch, Russian River 2011 “96pts” BH/ST79.00

One of the most interesting and amazing Chardonnays tasted in a long time. The citrus of Keefer Ranch comes out immediately, the French oak barrels add the light toast and the yeasty freshness that gives the wine extra layers. Apricots, pears, honey, buttered toast, crème brûlée and sweet baking spices, brightened with acidity. More flavors are present and active than can be believed. 98 cases made

Rombauer, Carneros 2016 "93pts" WS72.00

A creamy-textured, charming style that’s easy to drink yet is deceptively complex and layered, with a mix of vanilla-scented oak and vibrant peach, nectarine, honeydew and apricot flavors. Long on the finish

Dutton Goldfield, “Rued”, Dutton Ranch, Green Valley 2010 “97pts” WE 68.00

The cold and fog actually helped this Chardonnay, which achieves a remarkable delicacy and tartness despite the power of its fruit. Really remarkable for the flood of golden mango, Asian pear and Key lime pie richness, which is grounded by a firm minerality. Oak influence and aging on the lees lend the perfect touches of smoky, buttered toast and zesty creaminess

Lynmar Estate, Russian River 2013 “94pts” WE 64.00

This is a tremendous blend of various vineyard sites, coaxed together into a stunning combination of beautiful floral aromas, ginger and baked lemon. Given time in new oak, it takes on flavors of apple and vanilla, never venturing out of range and remaining balanced and textured

Merryvale, Carneros 2015 “94pts” WE

A lengthy, plush and full-bodied expression of the variety, this wine is sourced from the producer’s estate, Stanly Ranch, as well as Hyde and Poe vineyards. Salty caramel and toffee are complemented by bright orange and lemon accents. It’s well balanced and attractive now
14.50 | 56.00

Hartford Court, Russian River 2016 “93pts” WE

This wine offers subtle aromas of jasmine flower, citrus oil, green apple and pear. The elegant aromatics are complemented by fresh kiwi, lemon drop and Pippin apple flavors.

12.50 | 48.00

J.Lohr, "Arroyo Vista", Arroyo Seco, 2015 "98pts" BD

Winemaker Kristen Barnhisel continues the fine-tuning on Lohr’s ultimate version of the great white Burgundys of France. Classic techniques abound, from early-morning handpicking/sorting and stirring of the lees to extended barrel aging (14 months). Great mouth feel, very viscous, rich flavors, and a long, lingering finish. A true Monterey classic that should have the French looking over their shoulders.
11.50 | 44.00

Phantom, by Bogle, Clarksburg, Ca. 2016 “92pts” BD

Phantom Chardonnay entices with its rich layers. Green apple and pear transform into spicy flavors of freshly baked apple pie, while barrel fermentation and lees stirring imparts a creamy, luscious mouthfeel. French oak imparts sweet notes of vanilla and melted caramel
10.50 | 40.00

Cambria, “Katherines”, 2015 Santa Maria “91pts” W&S

9.50 | 36.00

Dona Paula, “Los Cardos”, Mendoza, Argentina 2017 “93pts” TP

The striking nose consists of pineapple, lemon spice, and chamomile. The acid is tense while the fruit is opulent: a sensational combination. Complex notes of tarragon and heather mingle between citrus and white peach.
8.75 | 33.00

Bogle, California 2016 “89pts” WE

Nicely balanced and complex in flavor, this blends bright apple and pear aromas with more subtle and spicy flavors like nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. The texture is smooth and sleek, livened up by good acidity, and the finish is long and lively
8.00 | 30.00

Sauvignon Blanc

Merry Edwards, Russian River Valley 2015 "97pts" WROL84.00

The wine is barrel fermented with biweekly lees stirring to give the wine richness and texture. It is consistently among the top two or three produced in the United States. What sets it apart is its remarkable complexity, structure and harmony. On the first sip you may be reminded of ripe tropical fruits. On the second, citrus notes emerge. Then there is the note of white peach that is a signature characteristic of the finest Bordeaux blanc. On another sip you might find the tangerine and Meyer lemon note that signals Sancerre. Texturally, the wine exhibits a rich, oily mouthfeel, but with firm acidity and telltale traces of minerality. In a word, this vintage of Merry Edwards sauvignon blanc is positively brilliant and delicious

Greywacke, Marlborough, New Zealand 2017 “93pts” W&S

One of the most sought after Marlborough Sauvignons, demand must follow owner Kevin Judd around – he was chief winemaker at Cloudy Bay for 25 years before deciding to go things alone. A delicious fusion of ripe summer fruits and delicate floral perfume - citrus blossom and elderflower entwined with nectarines and white peaches, mandarin, and cantaloupe with a twist of lemon. Intensely flavored, succulent and crisp with a delicate herbal infusion - quintessential Marlborough
12.00 | 46.00

Cape Mentelle, "SBS", Margaret River, AU 2016 "94pts" JH

A 58/42% blend harvested at night; most cold-fermented in stainless steel, with 7% of the blend fermented in new and used French barriques; both components given 4 months lees contact. There is an array of citrus and tropical fruit aromas and flavors, but it is the electricity of the intense palate that is the defining feature of the wine.
11.50 | 44.00

Silverado, “Miller Ranch” Yountville, Napa 2016 “92pts” W&S

This wine’s exotic fruit develops past notes of tangerine and cherimoya toward the cool pinkness of grapefruit. A small addition of barrel-fermented semillon lends textural richness, deepening the fruit flavor without adding any overt wood tones. It follows a clean line, the tart structure bringing you back for another sip
10.50 | 40.00

Starmont, by Merryvale, Napa 2015 “91pts” WE58.00

A dash of Sémillon adds to the playfulness of this wine, which is medium-built and moderate-to-high in acidity. Tangy curls of lemon, lime and grapefruit evolve into a bristling back note of crispness that just begs for oysters
9.75 | 37.00

Matetic, "EQ Coastal" Casablanca, Chile 2016 "92pts" W&S

Matetic makes this wine from an estate vineyard in Casablanca, six miles from the sea. It’s far-coast sauvignon in surround sound, powered by pear scents, candied lemon and fresh herbs. The flavors run deep, and while acidity keeps it refreshing, the wine feels soft and friendly

8.50 | 32.00

Bogle, California 2016 "90pts" TP

Another Best Buy from Bogle. This SB is crisp and complex in Asian pear, tangerine and green apple flavors, brightened with crisp acidity and made savory with dusty baking spices
8.00 | 30.00

Pinot Grigio

Terlato, Friuli Colli Orientali, Italy 2016 "93pts" TP

No doubt this prestigious region in northeast Italy shines when it comes to white wines, an envious position on the world wine stage. This pretty, crisp white certainly shows ripeness in its concentrated notes of pear, peach and grapefruit, but its stony frame is a nod to the iconic mineral-rich, sloped terraced vineyards responsible for its pizazz and charm. The finish is clean, punctuated with an apricot accent
12.50 | 48.00

Dr. Konstantin Frank, Finger Lakes, NY. 2009 "89pts"44.00

8.50 | 32.00

Castello Banfi, San Angelo, Toscana IGT, Italy 2015 “91pts” JS38.00

A dense and fruity Pinot Grigio with apple, banana and mineral aromas and flavors. Medium to full bodied with a bright finish
8.50 | 32.00

Fruits run from wild strawberry and watermelon to light citrus, woven together and set against rather firm tannins. A substantial wine with real grip and depth. Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvèdre

S.A. Prum, Pinot Noir Rosé, Mosel, Germany 2015 "91pts" TP

A great wine that will age for decades

Failla, "Hirsch" Sonoma Coast 2010 "97pts" WE140.00

This shows the trifecta of winemaker Ehren Jordan’s deft hand, the fabulous Hirsch Vineyard and the wonderful 2010 vintage. Even if you knew nothing of the wine’s pedigree, you’d be dazzled by its sheer richness of raspberry, cherry, cola and herb flavors, plus the firm, stone-driven minerality, the dryness, the feral mountain hints, the acidity and the overall dazzling structure. The alcohol level is comparatively restrained, providing just the right touch of warmth. New oak clocks in at only 30%, imbuing the wine with a nice seasoning of smoke.

The cool-climate 2014 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch, from the Green Valley in the Russian River, is absolutely spectacular. It saw 80% new oak because it was so concentrated, and it seems to have sucked it up and only reveals just a slight wood spice to its full-bodied, beautifully textured, black raspberry and blackberry fruit. This is one of the profound 2014s and should drink well for 15-20 years

Roar "Sierra Mar" Santa Lucia Highlands 2013 "95pts" RP99.00

The 2013 Pinot Noir Sierra Mar shows a vibrancy and tension that’s distinctly granite influenced.

Bodegas Olivares, “Altos De La Hoya”, Jumilla, Spain 2011 “91pts” ST48.00

Bright purple. Black raspberry and cassis aromas, with spicy mineral and floral elements gaining power with air.

The Beer Experience

The Beer Styles

Lager.... Characterized by its light body, pale hue and mellow flavor, this beer is made with bottom-fermenting yeast and “lagered” (German for stored or aged) at temperatures close to freezing. Its worldwide popularity is due to its clarity and smoothness.

Pilsner..... Originally from Pilsner, Bohemia, this lager-style has a slightly tannic character, with an emphasis on hops. Aged in wood, it glows with golden color and is traditionally the palest of all lagers.

Wheat (Weiss, Weizen)..... Highly carbonated, low in alcohol and prized for its refreshing qualities. Wheat beers substitute malted wheat for barley, resulting in a characteristic yeasty aroma, dense foam head and thirst quenching tartness.

Ale..... More full bodied, hop flavored and bitter than lagers. Its characteristic malt flavor, full flavor palate result from the use of top-fermenting yeast. Many micro-brews are brewed in this style.

IPA..... India Pale Ale was invented in the late 18th century for thirsty British Colonial troops stationed in India. Regular beer would spoil on the 5-month voyage, so brewers made a stronger, more highly-hopped brew that would survive the trip. It became very popular. Lighter and hoppier than pale ales, if you like hops, you’ll love IPAs.

Porter..... A traditional English beer, originally brewed to satisfy the demand for a 50/50 mix of ale and stout. Its dark brown hue and full body come from roasting the barley before brewing. Less hoppy than a normal ale with a hint of sweetness.

Stout..... Richer and more full-bodied than porter, stout is a dark, heavy, top-fermented beer with a rich malty flavor and bitter hops taste. It is usually low in carbonation and may be served at closer to cellar temperatures.

Belgium/Trappist..... Trappist Ales are indeed brewed within the monasteries in Belgium. Today many former trappist beers are brewed for monasteries in the old style. This list offers several of the great remaining trappist beers. The beers display high ABV as a result of as much as 3 times (tripel) the malt normally used. The result is complex flavors with a smooth, almost sweet finish.

Barleywine..... An English term for an extra strong ale. Barleywine is very full-bodied, malty, highly hopped and very high in alcohol. Typically consumed in smaller servings, this beer makes an excellent nightcap.

The Drafts

98 • Deschutes “Fresh Squeezed” IPA6.50

OR. 6.4% ABV 60 IBU
Pours a crystal clear dark orange/copper with powerful tropical fruit aroma, (mango, tangerine, grapefruit), mint, pine, and caramel malt. Lush, juicy tropical and citrus forward (matches the fruits found in the nose but some added lemon/lime). Semi-sweet malts (buttered biscuit) come through in the mid-palate and provide a nice base for the hops to blend with. Finishes with tangerine peel and fresh mulled spearmint. WOW!

92 • Left Hand, “Travelin’ Light” Kölsch6.50

Co. 4.8% ABV
Nice grass and citrus aroma with gentle light malt qualities. Crisp apple, pear, lemon, clean grainy malt, straw and light grass, with a crisp grainy, pilsner-like malt backbone. Slight honey sweetness. Touches of hay and grass on the backend, but no discernable bitterness. Finishes crisp, clean, and lightly dry with a bit of fruitiness. A well-rounded, easy drinking light ale perfect for Kölsch fans

91 • Four Peaks, “Kilt Lifter”6.50

Arizona 6.0% ABV 21 IBU
An easy drinking Scottish Ale. Solid and clear copper in color. Sweet toasted malt aroma of brown bread, doughy biscuits with a sharp peat accent with a hint of smoke. The malt base is laden with caramel and sugars. The peat and sugar really kicked off the flavor here. The scotch notes are subtle, the finish is of caramel malt with a hint of hops

Lagers

90 • Boston Beer Co. Samuel Adams Light4.75

Pale amber color. Pleasant aroma of lightly fruity caramel and toast follow through on a crisp entry to a dryish light-to-medium body with good balance and depth of flavor. Finishes with a long, crisp earthy hop and mineral accented fade. A very nice light beer with considerable flavor and style

94 • Lagunitas Pils5.00

Ca. 5.3%ABV
This lager has a bright and lively nose on it. There’s a fruitiness which is delicate and faintly citrus in nature. There is an immediate richness and almost sweet feeling. The beer then quickly shows it’s assertive, although balanced, hopping and finishes nice and dry. The saliva glands squirt and it’s time for another sip

94 • Oskar Blues Brewery, “Mama’s Little Yella Pils”5.50

Colo. 5.3% ABV
Deep golden color. Honeyed baguette and apricot skin aromas lead to a round, supple entry to a dryish medium body with great depth and balance. Finishes in a crisp, citrus on toast fade with earthy hops lingering. Delicious and very Czech-like with a fruity twist

95 • Pilsner Urquell5.50

Czech Republic
The nose on this beer is very fragrant with flowery/herbal hop aromas. The palate is soft, with lots of good crisp pilsner malt flavors, and just a touch of diacetal, which makes the mouth feel slightly buttery. The body is round and clean making it so, so drinkable. Finishes with more of that good malt flavor up front, then ends with a dry, grassy, balancing hop bitterness that slightly lingers

90 • Stella Artois Lager5.75

Belgium
Pale golden amber color. Delicate aromas of citrus peels and baguette bread follow through to a frothy, grainy medium body of wheat toast, clay, and caramelized dried fruit flavors with a long, sweet and sour citrus and earthy hop finish. Nice depth of flavor and vibrancy

92 • Boston Beer Co. Samuel Adams Boston Lager5.50

Deep amber color. Aromas of apricot butter on raisin toast follow through on round, crisp entry to a dryish medium-to-full body with excellent balance and vibrancy. Finishes with a long nutty praline and earthy citrusy hop fade. An excellent refreshing beer with nice complexity

100 • Privatbrauerei Aying Celebrator Doppelbock10.00

6.7% ABV
Deep mahogany brown with a ruby cast. Vibrant aromas of baker’s chocolate, fruit nut caramel fudge, light molasses and cigar box spice jump from the glass and follow through to a rich, velvety full body with a lingering nutty, spice, and earth fade. Wonderfully rich and contemplative. Truly world-class

97 • Spaten Optimator6.00

Germany 9.5% ABV
Dark brown color. Nutty, dark chocolate covered cherry aromas follow through to a frothy, dryish medium-full body of tangy tangerine, and dried peach, honey, and brown sugar flavors. Finishes with a tangy chocolate, orange peel, and vibrant spicy and earthy hop fade. Nice expression of hops through the sweet malt

Wheat Beers

97 • Privatbrauerei Aying Ayinger Bräu-Weisse7.00

11.2 oz. 5.1% ABV
Cloudy bright golden color with an ultra fine blanket of mousse. Lightly toasted nougat, banana bread, and delicate clover aromas follow through on a velvety entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-full body with seamless integration of creamy banana and gentle citrusy elements and outstandingly clean wheat cracker like malt. Finishes with a very long, graceful fade of lush, refreshing and inviting lightly spicy flavors. Classic

96 • Brau Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse7.00

Germany 5% ABV
Cloudy old gold color with silky blanket of superfine mousse. Dried citrus, peppery spice, and moist bread dough aromas. A satiny smooth entry leads to a dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body of citrus and peach marmalade, fig, cream, and sweet wheat cracker flavors. Finishes with an ethereal fade of dried fruit, dusty spice, and delicate minerality

98 • Bell’s “Oberon”6.00

Michigan 5% ABV
Pours to an beautiful deep golden, murky, color. All of Bell’s beers are unpasturized, and unfiltered. The nose is very “wheaty”. Grainy wheat aromas marry with grassy hop aroma. Oberon is hopped with Saaz hops. The palate is very firm, crisp, and grainy. Imported Belgian malted wheat is used, and this gives this beer a very tart, slightly sour edge. Finishes with more of that tart wheat character, and grassy hop bitterness

Ales

93 • Firestone Walker, 805, CA5.50

4.7% ABV
Classified as a Blonde ale. This is a very subtle brew, unlike most craft offerings today. However its reserved character is refreshing. There is a light carbonation that dances across the tongue. Hop bitterness is similar to a pilsner, but is more than balanced by the creamy, nutty malt. Excellent light bodied brew

96 • Sierra Nevada, Pale Ale, CA5.25

5.6% ABV 37 IBU
Dark gold with an amber hue when poured. Nice sweet citric malt aroma with orange overtone, balanced by a light pine hop note. Juicy citric malt meets a dry, herbal hopiness when first tasted. Notes of orange, melon, green tea and forest leaf come through on the palate. Lightly dry, tangy finish. Full enough in body to make for a well-rounded brew, a first class example of Cascade hops

92 • Deschutes Brewery Mirror Pond Pale Ale5.50

5% ABV
Pure pale amber color. Aromas of candied grapefruits and apricots with a hint of citrus shaving cream follow through on a round, plush entry to a dryish medium-to-full body with bread pudding and toasted nut notes. Finishes with a long, crisp, and refreshing honeyed citrus and pine accented fade. A deliciously flavorful and balanced pale ale

94 • Full Sail Brewing Co. Full Sail IPA5.50

Oregon 6% ABV
Pale amber color. Honeyed orange bread, tapioca, and mild peppery spice aromas follow through on a smooth creamy entry to a rich, dryish medium-to-full body with great vibrancy and balance. Finishes with a long, refreshing burnt orange peel, custard, and toast fade. A rich, flavorful IPA in the English vein

100 • Bell’s “Two Hearted Ale”, IPA6.50

Michigan 7% ABV
Sweet citrusy notes dominate the nose: tangerines, lemons, mangos, and grapefruits! Has a nice hint of floral hops as well. Flavors are bright and clean w/ a crisp, snappy hop profile. Plenty of fruit character shows, with some apricot and other fleshy stone fruits, citrus rind, and mild caramel malts create this wonderful specimen

94 • Lagunitas IPA5.50

CA 5.5% ABV
Clear amber color. Aroma of grapefruit. The mouthfeel is medium and full of hops and lots of caramelly malt and definite citrus. Finish is nicely dry and refreshing. Above medium bodied with good levels of bitterness

100 • Dogfish Head 90 minute Double IPA7.00

Delaware 9% ABV
Reddish amber. Flowery, citrusy nose. Full bodied, seet, slightly syrupy mouthfeel, and a late bitterness that just keeps growing. Sweet and citrusy hop aroma with some tropical fruit notes. Despite it´s bizarre hop ratio it somehow manages to remain somewhat balanced. As usual a very interesting brew from Dogfish Head

100 • Stone Brewing Co. IPA6.50

California 6.9% ABV 70+ IBU
Pours golden amber, lovely head & lacing. Fresh citrus on the nose, with white grapes; like walking through an evergreen forest after a rain. Hops-forward, pleasant resiny flavor fills your mouth with pine-bright goodness. Clean, fantastic aftertaste, perfection that lingers in the best way

100 • Stone “Ruination” Double IPA9.50

California 7.7% ABV 100+ IBU
Wonderful hoppiness to the flavor with a surprisingly strong backbone of malt that balances this out perfectly. A perfect beer for hopheads. The aroma speaks of huge hops and flowers and grapefruits: a citrus lover’s ultimate fantasy. “Ruination” is perfectly named, and has this way of making you notice the flaws in other brews

97 • Ommegang, Hennepin Farmhouse Saison Ale8.00

NY 7.7% ABV
Golden color. Lavender bath soap aromas follow through to a fruity medium body of tangerine, toasted wheat bread, honey, and spice flavors. Finishes with a mandarin orange, spice custard, and talc fade. Interesting and quite lively and refreshing. Very wine like

99 • Unibroue La Fin du Monde8.50

9% ABV (Abbey Tripel)
Slightly hazy golden amber color with a fine mousse. Aromas of toasted muffin, poached egg, sautéed spinach and peach jam are reminiscent of Eggs Florentine and follow through on a round, foamy entry to a dryish medium-full body with tangy spiced orange, honeyed apple and pear skin, and creme brulee crust notes. Finishes with wave of alcohol, baguette, and earthy hop flavors. A big, delicious food centric beer

93 • Moose Drool, Big Sky Brewing5.50

Montana 5.1% ABV
Deep almond color. The taste is very rich and full without being full bodied and maintaining good drink
