40 year Tawny Port
What a treat this is! Big and opulent, this wine begins with tastes of fig, raisin, and dates. Finishes long with touches of coffee and dark chocolate. A great alternative to the more expensive vintage ports.

2008 Sauternes 1er Cru Grand Cru 3lt.
From one of the premier Sauternes houses! This is a once in a lifetime chance to buy a double magnum of Sauternes for only $299.99! Rich and sticky with ripe peach and lemon, the focused acidity cuts through the sweetness to leave your mouth watering! A true gem!

Vintage Port 1997
With the spicy sweet notes of fig and fine wood presented with a velvet style and plenty of power, this great “Vintage” style port from the famed Dows is a great value! The perfect way to cap a meal, linger in discussion, and appreciate time with this lovely wine.

Alvear Pedro Ximenez
What can be said about a wine produced from a “Solera” that started in 1830 and only produces 1200 bottles every 2 years? Concentrated sweet flavors of caramel, five spice, cinnamon, and rich coffees are released in this decadently rich and velvety wine. This is a concentration of age, grape, and generational wine making skills.
