Le Coeur Cremant de loire Reine

A collaboration with Rodolphe & Ludivine Marteau and Vincent Leclair - both fourth generation families in Touraine. The Marteaus took over their family’s estate in 2010 which is a 29 hectare property is located on South bank of the river Cher, on siliceous- argilo (clay and flint) soils. Vincent assumed leadership in 2014 at his family’s 45 hectare estate in Pouillé, in the Cher Valley.

The vines average 30 years in age and are meticulously tended by the family. Short-cane pruning, selective ploughing, spring de-budding, deleafing, grass cover throughout the vineyard and green harvest practices all lend to limited yields and best quality fruit at harvest.

Tasting Notes: The nose offers an intense “fruit basket” dominated by citrus scents with a note of blackcurrant bud. In the mouth, all is suppleness and elegance. The final spicy note emphasizes the freshness and the generous length of this Touraine Sauvignon.

GOLD - Oregon Wine Competition

Pessimist Red
Paso Robles, California

Pessimist has a powerful and intensely aromatic nose that ascends to greet you with blueberry, boysenberry and black plum fragrance. Evolving layers reveal elderberry and truffle, with cocoa and cardamom spice accents, further augmented by hints of eucalyptus, leather, cherry pipe tobacco and grilled meats. The finish is smooth and leisurely. Essences of pure dark berry fruit seemingly refuse to abate with a gorgeous fitting finale.

Blend: Petite Sirah 64%, Syrah 23%, 10% Zinfandel, 2% Lagrein, and 1% Tannat.

92 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A value-priced Rhône blend that usually contains some Zinfandel and Petite Syrah, the 2017 Pessimist offers up rich aromas of dark fruit, grilled meat, licorice and black olive. It's full-bodied, rich and spicy, with good balance and an intense, flavorful finish.

92 Points, Wine Enthusiast
This blend of primarily Petite Sirah, Syrah and Zinfandel starts with rich, lush aromas of black cherry, vanilla cream and caramel, with a hint of earth. Framed by solid tannins and bright acidity, the palate runs through similar fruit and spice flavors with plenty of power.

90 Points, Jeb Dunnuck
Moving to the 2017s, the already bottled 2017 Pessimist is a lot of wine for not much buck. This full-bodied, fleshy, sexy wine gives up lots of black fruits, chocolate, spice, and subtle vanilla notes and certainly put a smile on my face. It’s a pleasure bent, undeniably hedonistic wine to drink over the coming couple of years.

Kale Somerston White Grenache Blanc
Napa Valley, California

In 2008, Kale and his wife Ranko set out to create Rhône inspired wines from extraordinary vineyards in Northern California under their own label, Kale Wines. Specializing in small production, handcrafted wines, Kale utilizes new technologies as well as ancient techniques to express the unique vineyards' most delicious characteristics.

Winemaker Notes: Kaffir lime blossom, white peach and fresh-cut pineapple aromatics. Crushed gravel minerality frame the mid-palate. Brisk acidity comes off as zesty citrus. Comice pear, citron and herbal nuance through the finish. This wine will develop natural tartrate crystals through aging.

92 Points, Wine Enthusiast
From a site tucked within the eastern hills of the appellation, this is a 100% varietal expression, dark hay in color, sparkling in minerality and sporting a gravelly edge. Stainless steel and one neutral French oak barrel helped ferment and age. Flinty, it shines in lime, peach and pear.

Aviatrix Grenache

The first-ever wine collaboration between La Sirena winemaker/owner Heidi Barrett and her two daughters, winemaker Chelsea Barrett, and sales/marketing director Remi Barrett. Aviatrix Grenache is dedicated to the intrepid women throughout the history of aviation, who surpass society’s expectations and limitations to soar to new heights.

Tasting Notes:
This lovely wine is medium garnet in color with aromas of all spice, plum, rainier cherry, and rose. Beautiful purity of aromatics and flavors. Across the palate it is soft, lush, juicy and quite tasty. Very light tannins add structure and nice texture to the mid palate. Flavors are expressive for Grenache, cherry and plum but with layers and complexity, very rhone-like in profile. Medium body and ready to enjoy now. A delicious expression of Grenache.

Mionetto IL Prosecco Organic

Made from grapes cultivated without usage of chemical product nor synthetical fertilizers, it’s produced from a vinification kept separate from other processes. A sparkling Prosecco with a persistent perlage, it merges delicate fragrances of acacia blossoms and strong tastes of golden apple, pineapple and orange.

Mionetto’s most classic line reflects its connections with the history of the winery in the elegant presentation of the bottle, which features an oblique label design that has always been a characteristic of the winery. The refined design of the label reflects the style of the products. Prestige, quality in every detail!

Cupcake Cava

Crafted in northern Spain in the traditional Champagne method, our Cava sparkling wine delights any palate with fine bubbles and creamy flavors of lemon mousse, baked pear, and toasted brioche.

Cupcake Cava comes from the Penendes region of Northern Spain, where mild temperatures and moderate rainfall create ideal grape-growing conditions. The wine is aged for 9 months in bottle, creating fine bubbles and a rich, complex flavor profile. The end result is a delicious, crisp yet creamy sparkler with a soft finish.

Three Henrys Chardonnay

The Chardonnay wine grape is planted in virtually every wine region in the world. But this one comes from France, where Chardonnay was first created seven centuries ago. Estate grown. 100% Chardonnay. Unoaked.
~ Tastes like exotic fruits, apple and lime zest

Three Henrys Rosè

Unlike other wines, Rose doesn’t get better with age. Typically, the newer the rose, the fresher it is.
~ Tastes like a fruit basket of flavors with a notable smack of nectarine
~ Always served chilled
~ Pairs well with barbeque, cookies and bubble baths

Estate grown. 45% Grenache, 20% Caladoc, 20% Merlot

Old Westminster Franc Fizz

Maryland-grown Cabernet Franc fermented and aged in stainless steel. A few weeks ago, we had a wild idea: let's blend in 10% fresh 2019 Marquette juice. Within a few days the juice was spontaneously fermenting and the wine was hand bottled under crown-cap to capture natural effervescence. The result? A bright & juicy blend, full of life, uncomplicated, and marked by soft tannins, fresh bubbles and brambly fruit.

Old Westminster Pét-Nat Chardonnay

Noteworthy wines, uniquely Maryland, expressive of soil, climate and geography.

This natural style of sparkling wine is made from Chardonnay grown in our Home Vineyard in Westminster MD. Pét-nats are made by bottling still-fermenting wine under cap and allowing fermentation to finish in the bottle. Beyond the fact that it’s downright delicious, pét-nat doesn’t have any additives, there’s no blending, and the all-natural process is a direct reflection of the vineyard and the vintage. Once the still-fermenting juice is bottled, you don’t taste it again until it’s in your glass. This makes it a little unpredictable, and that spontaneity is one reason why it’s so popular.
This wine offers a dazzling and vivid expression of Chardonnay - high acidity, apricots and limes, distinctive texture and a refreshing stream of lively bubbles!

How Do We Slightly Sour?
What Is Kettle Souring?

"Here at Sierra Nevada, we make plenty of sour beers the traditional way—wooden barrels and lots of time. But for Wild Little Thing, brewed to be slightly sour, we use the accelerated “kettle souring” technique. First, we make wort (unfermented beer) without hops. Then we boil it, cool it and add lactobacillus, the same friendly bacteria you know from yogurt or sauerkraut. Lactobacillus turns sugar into lactic acid. Voila! Now we’re sour. We blend this special wort (roughly 10%) back into Wild Little Thing’s total wort to achieve its tartness."

Stiegl Radler Raspberry

Fresh Raspberry juice gives Himbeere its striking bright-pink color and aroma of fresh jam.

Left Hand Brewing Co. – NEW to Arkansas!!
Brewed in Colorado

We are now carrying a wide variety of Left Hand Brewing Co. beers. Come check them out.

It all started with a humble homebrew kit and the drive to make better beer. Tired of the same bland and dated choices everywhere, Air Force friends Eric Wallace and Dick Doore set out to make the kind of beer that excited them; beer they wanted to drink. A hobby quickly became an obsession and it wasn't long before Left Hand Brewing was born in Longmont, Colorado. Over 26 years later, we're still forging our own path, building community around better beer. Because to us, serving both is equally essential. And because when you're not satisfied with the way things are, you change them.
