Iowa pulled the same thing. Upped the cap to something like 18%.

You really donít see wines above about 16% unless they are fortified.

A grocery store near me carries it as well, along with WWS from 2010.

Sink the Bismarck was available in TX so I donít think thatís correct.

Texas doesnít have an ABV cutoff, but higher than 15.5% requires further license (per Wikipedia).

And as for grocery stores, 120 and WWS are sold in Virginia grocery stores too. Typically at the lowest prices to be found too.

Legion is completely correct. It has everything to do with the type of establishment and type of permit they have.

Sink the Bismarck was only available is stores with permits that allow spirits and fortified wine sales, aka a "Liquor Store" or "Package Store".
