Siete Leguas Reposado – “Siete Leguas, named after the horse belonging to Pancho Villa and from one of the oldest distilleries in Mexico, Casa Siete Leguas has more than fifty years of experience in the making of tequila by means of a traditional process delivering full-bodied, high-quality spirits of refined flavor. This tequila begins, ends, and revolves around a wonderful fruity sweetness, complemented by smooth spicy earthy agave notes giving it a near unparalleled balance and complexity. Aroma has citrus and some dill and/or mint to go with the 7 Leguas fruity sweet/roasted agave profile. Taste continues along the same narrative, expanding into flavors of soft wood, some caramel, and a perfect dash of peppery spice, while still retaining that earthy agave component up front. Finish is long and wide, great spice and nice heat, ending where it all began with notes of soft sweet."

managers' wine consensus
Intrinsic Cabernet Sauvignon
Suggested: $21.99 | Liquor Boy: $18.99
“This wine has a refined nose with aromas of leather and cherries that are truthful to Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington. The flavors are layered with tones of blueberry jam, pomegranate and chocolate. The texture is rustic, yet silky, with a unique savory and inviting finish.” (90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc).
Cloud Chaser Rose
Suggested: $24.99 | Liquor Boy: $17.99
“Light pink coral color. Fruity, floral aromas and flavors of melon and strawberries in cream, spiced pear, and cotton with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a seamless, interesting, medium-length lemon spritzed cherry and minerals and earth finish with fine, crunchy, fruit tannins and a suggestion of oak.” (12.5% Alc/Vol)
L’Agnostique Pinot Noir
Suggested: $15.99 | Liquor Boy: $12.99
“100% Pinot Noir picked at full maturity and produced without the use of oak barrels. Unlike so many inexpensive Pinot Noirs, L’Agnostique Pinot Noir shows off its French pedigree with elegant aromatics, a beautiful transparency, and a balanced palate. Drink it with grilled fish, roast chicken or game birds, or beef stewed in red wine (ideally stewed in L’Agnostique Pinot Noir). Drink it with pork tenderloin.”
Sean Minor Nicole Marie Red
Suggested: $26.99 | Liquor Boy: $19.99
"This blends 51% Merlot with 29% Zinfandel, 15% Petit Verdot and 5% Petite Sirah, combining nicely for a full-bodied expression of chocolate and dried dark cherry. On the palate, it becomes dusty and somewhat rustic, with an intensely juicy finish."
Matias Riccitelli “Hey Malbec” Malbec
Suggested: $21.99 | Liquor Boy: $16.99
“100% Malbec is incredibly well-balanced as an Argentina meets France in its interpretation of this grape. Lush and richly flavored as you would expect Argentina to bring, balanced by the earth and acid you would expect from Cahors, France. Juicy black fruits combine with violets and black pepper, with soft and ripe tannins leading to a soft and opulent finish. Lovely on its own or with grilled meat.”
