Check out some of the NEW ARRIVALS this Fall at Taylor’s Wine Shop! ELEVEN ELEVEN WINES 2012 ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON – $99.99 LAKI’S VINEYARD, OAK KNOLL, NAPA VALLEY – 90 Points – Wine Enthusiast,2/1/2016 BUY NOW “While soft and approachable, this wine also offers a density of black currant and cherry that gives significant power and juicy exuberance. Sizable tannins risk overtaking the fruit, but never do, with the oak imparting a jolt of smokiness on the finish.” – Virginie Boone Gold Medal, 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition Tasting Notes: This Library Vintage of our Cabernet begins with a beautiful and wildly dark purple rim. Full force aromatics of camphor, crushed herbs, black cherry, rose, violet and cured game exude from the glass, building in volume to reveal nuances of olive, French oak and vanilla. The first sip is striking as you swirl the wine over your tongue. An exciting arrangement of flavors emerge including blueberry, chocolate, espresso and red hard candy. The tannins and acidity are perfectly balanced, and the complexity of the palate will only build over time. Enjoy now through 2029 and beyond. PRODUCTION: 856 CASES Eleven Eleven 2013 Chardonnay (Russian River Valley) – $44.99 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast: Lemon meringue and custard provide decadence to this vineyard-designated wine, the site planted to decades-old vines. It becomes sublime as it opens, spicy and soft in quince and Asian pear. The finish returns to the opening theme, delivering a punch of caramel. Renteria Family Wines 2014 Los Carneros Chardonnay – Taylor’s Bottle Price $44.99 Blended from two fantastic vineyards, the Brown Ranch which the Renteria’s purchased a few...

Check out some of the latest seasonal and limited releases to hit the shelves at Taylor’s! These are some tasty refreshing beers perfect for the summer, spring or relaxing afternoon!   DUCLAW BREWING – BLOOD ORANGE NEON GYPSY IPA – 6.5% ABV The first foray into our Hop Continuum Series, our flagship IPA infused with blood orange juice, proved so popular that it transcended the series to stand on its own outside as a worthy companion to the original Neon Gypsy.This medium-bodied IPA is clear golden with a thin white head, crisp mouthfeel, and moderately strong 6.5% ABV. Notes of grapefruit, citrus, and pine from a blend of seven hops balances the tart sweetness of blood orange juice for a flavor profile that roams your palate long after the beer’s bittersweet finish. – Brewery Notes D9 BREWING – HAKUNA MATATA TROPICAL IPA – 6.5% ABV This Tropical IPA is brewed using hops from the US, UK, Germany, Slovenia, and New Zealand. The result is a much more balanced, less bitter but more flavorful Dank-style IPA with hints of Mandarin Orange, Pineapple, Grapefruit, and Elderflower. – Brewery Notes NEW BELGIUM BREWERY – CITRADELIC TANGERINE IPA Tune in and hop out with New Belgium Citradelic. Set adrift on a kaleidoscopic wave of hoppiness brought to you by a mystical marriage of Citra hops and tangerine peel, which elevates each sip onto a plane of pure tropical, fruity pleasure. Citradelic’s namesake hop and fruit combine to jam with visions of additional hops like citrusy Mandarina Bavaria, tropical Azzaca, and fruity Galaxy for a colorful explosion that’s grounded by just a touch of malty...
