Virginia Black American Whiskey

Wally's Price: $40.00

Nothing says the 4th of July like superb classic American Whiskey. Virginia Black is a collaboration between Brent Hocking, founder and creator of the original Deleón Tequila: an award-winning artist, songwriter, rapper, and actor, Drake. A personally selected collection of two, three, and four-year old bourbons finished with a decadent profile.

NV Gosset Brut Excellence

Wally's Price: $50.00

For nearly three centuries the house of Gosset has been perfecting the art of making wine in France's Champagne region. Their Brut Excellence over delivers for its entry-level price. Dry and racy on the palate, the Excellence is accented by inviting aromas of candied lemon peel, sliced almonds and freshly baked bread. A blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier from Premier and Grand Cru classified vineyards.

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose Champagne

Wally's Price: $85.00

Everything you would want in a glass of pink Champagne, Billecart-Salmon's Brut Rose offers beautiful notes of wild strawberry and cherry biscotti to accompany its sleek, velvety texture. Make no mistake, these are ultra fine bubbles that slide gently across the palate. The perfect summer-time sparkler for sipping by the pool or to cool-off by the grill.

2017 Smith & Sheth CRU Wairau Sauvignon Blanc

Wally's Price: $30.00

A more zesty style of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, the Cru by Smith & Sheth has got it all... freshly sliced limes, crunchy pineapple, hop flowers and fresh herbs. What a pairing with fresh seafood, summer salads and grilled vegetables. So crisp and refreshing, it is guaranteed to be a hit with anyone who twists the cap.

2015 Muller-Catoir Burgergarten Muskateller Trocken

Wally's Price: $33.00

Here is something new to bring to the table! Dry German Muscat. The aromas are sensational... fruit cocktail, honeysuckle, orange blossom, papaya, mandarin oranges. It just goes on and on. Then on the palate the wine comes across as dry, fresh and crystal clear. Each sip more delicious than the last. Perfect on its own or alongside ceviche or grilled shrimp. Your friends will be snapping pictures of the label to recreate the experience!

2016 Vasse Felix 'Filius' Chardonnay, Margaret River

Wally's Price: $22.00

Western Australia has been hitting home runs with their elegant, softly textured Chardonnays that offer lovely fruit flavors, freshness and a hint of creaminess as well. Vasse Felix offers one of the best examples for a terrific value. The Filius is the complete package with just a hint of oak and vanilla spice accenting what is otherwise a very focused, crisp Chardonnay. This style will please fans of California and French Chardonnay alike.

2014 Canalicchio Di Sopra Brunello Di Montalcino

Wally's Price: $89.00

Fans of Tuscany's most famous wine, Brunello di Montalcino, have to try the 2014 Canalicchio di Sopra. A wonderful combination of power and poise, this Brunello would find a perfect home beside anything off the grill: ribeye steaks, lamb chops, even cheeseburgers. The wine is remarkably sleek and evocative for a young Sangiovese. It has the stuffing to age but is also singing at the moment.

2015 Mordoree Chateauneuf Du Pape Reine Des Bois

Wally's Price: $100.00

From the legendary 2015 vintage, Domaine de la Mordoree's top wine is the Reine des Bois. This Grenache-based blend is one complex sipper. From ripe fruit notes of raspberry jam and fig paste, to cinnamon, clove, licorice and black pepper, this full-bodied wine offers it all. Grenache wines from the Southern Rhone Valley pair well with a wide array of foods, but chief among them is grilled meats basted in barbecue sauce. Try this gem of a wine with baby back ribs for an unforgettable experience.

2012 Chateau Lynch Bages

Wally's Price: $125.00

One of Bordeaux's most respected, collected and cherished wines, Chateau Lynch-Bages crafts a divine wine vintage after vintage. Here we feature the 2012 for its excellent value and ability to be drank young. While you let your 2010 and 2014 develop in the cellar, enjoy this fresh, perfumed expression of a Pauillac legend. Roughly 70% Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot in supporting roles.

2016 Lewis Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Wally's Price: $99.00

The king of California wines, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, might just be the ideal wine to celebrate the 4th of July. For many vintages in a row, Lewis Cellars has been producing one of the valley's most impressive Cabernet wines. Rich and concentrated, with oodles of dark fruit framed by spicy, cedary oak, the wines are as good as they are hard to come by. There are no shortage of Lewis fans especially with all the accolades the winery has garnered in wine publications. But worry not, Wally's has you covered!
