Red Wine by Felsina from Tuscany, Italy. #40 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016 Ruby red with deep intensity and hue. Fruity, fine and elegant aromas dominated by wild berries accompanied by various spicy notes. Fruity on the palate with good tannins and a lingering finish.
Red Wine by Philippe Gavignet from Burgundy, France - regions. The 2013 Bourgogne Pinot has aromas of black fruits and a hint of forest floor. Flavors of black and red fruits with hints of black pepper make this wine pure, savory and mouth-watering.
Red Wine by Stolpman Vineyards from Central Coast, California. The deep and enveloping nose spreads out to lighter notes of Blackberry, sage, and toast. As the nose opens up, ripe black cherries appear backed by tobacco. On the palate, the flavor profile is high toned and the wine finishes with excitement. Notes of rosemary behind bright red fruit. The mid-palate will continue to fill in with age promising a decades-long life. The 2012 Hiltops arrives in the new, custom Ballard Canyon Syrah bottle with the words BALLARD CANYON subtly raised in the shoulder of the glass. The debut of the bottle, only used by Ballard Canyon grower-producers for Syrah, happens to coincide with the ideal, even 2012 growing season.
Red Wine by Chateau Belle-Vue from Medoc, France - Bordeaux.
Red Wine by Jean-Charles Fagot from Burgundy, France - regions. Rich purple color with red and dark fruits on the nose, red cherry, blackberry. Very lively on the palate with exceptional structure for a Bourgogne Rouge.
Red Wine by Brander from Central Coast, California. This versatile wine - as always, a tremendous value- exemplifies Santa Barbara County Syrah. The hue of dried dark red rose petals, this opens with notes of vanilla bean, campfire smoke, cardamom, and the barest hint of iodine on the nose. Fruit of great purity appears on the palate, which offers violets, black cherry, clove, wild blueberries, and an almost subliminal sense of what the French refer to as sauvage - that combination of wild and earthy gaminess that is such a hallmark of classic Syrah. Pair this with grilled, paprika-dusted eggplant with homemade ricotta, Santa Maria-style tri-tip barbecue, or a plate of dry-cured olives with fresh burrata and a chunk of deliciously crusty bread.
Red Wine by Wild Horse from Central Coast, California. The Central Coast Merlot has aromas of cherry pie, fresh berry cobbler, vanilla, mint, and baking spice. The palate is full bodied with red-fruit flavors and soft, round, approachable tannins. This wine pairs perfectly with filet mignon with chimichurri sauce, BBQ short ribs, and grilled portabella mushrooms.
Red Wine by Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier from Victoria, Australia. #66 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2015 A spicy Shiraz from the vineyards of Central Victoria brightens with a boost of Viognier for aroma and balance, as often practiced in France's most highly regarded appellation of the Northern Rhone Valley, Cote Rotie. The grapes grown in this Austrialian vineyard were planted on 19th century French rootstocks, another nod to the French tradition and influence in this new world wine. This wine is a collaborative effort between two renowned wine families; Chapoutier from the Rhone Valley in France, and the Terlato family of Napa Valley in California.
Red Wine by Avalon from California. Juicy aromas of dark fruit, mocha and spice meet with hints of vanilla. On the palate, black cherry, red raspberry and plum are followed by a long, smooth finish. Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Zinfandel, 8% Syrah, 4% Merlot. Pair with: grilled burgers, pizza and rotisserie chicken.
Red Wine by Jeff Runquist from Sierra Foothills, California. The 2014 Amador Barbera has a ruby purple color of a moderate depth. The aroma centers on raspberry, cherry and currant, along with a perfumed note of violets and lavender. The aromas are framed with notes of vanilla, nutmeg, and hazelnut. This combination generates a gravitational pull that is hard to resist. Barbera is known for its brightness due to a little extra acid in the grapes similar to a Pippin or Granny Smith apple. This often makes for a zesty, tangy, sometimes zippy flavor. However, the 2104 Barbera has a savory succulence and a rich viscosity not normally associated with Barbera. The red fruit flavors are delivered by a wine with a creamy, smooth, and round texture that transitions seamlessly to an elegant finish with notes of mocha, caramel, and gently toasted oak. This is an easy drinking red wine that pairs well with Mediterranean cuisine.
Red Wine by Lumen from Central Coast, California. Franco-Spanish varietal has started to gain a following on California's Central Coast, and we know why - it makes a great Pinot alternative. Our Grenache is sourced from Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard, the highest Grenache vineyard in California, located east of Santa Maria, with a smaller amount from Beckmen blended in. The wine exhibits intense cranberry and blueberry fruit, wrapped around notes of brown sugar and molasses.
Red Wine by Angeline from North Coast, California. Angeline Winery takes pride in the Reserve Cabernet's propensity to be a pleasant and approachable wine for both the Cabernet aficionado and red wine drinker alike. It presents aromas of bright red fruits like ripened cherries and blackberries layered on subtle foundation of fresh tobacco and cocoa. Although fruit-forward and juicy on the front palate, the finish is strong and textured.
Red Wine by Fattoria dei Barbi from Tuscany, Italy. Deep ruby red color with garnet notes on the rim. Complex aromas of cherry, blackcurrant, plum, almond and vanilla with hints of balsamic. The aromas repeat on the palate which is smooth and balanced with added spice and a long, persistent finish. This wine is generally ready to drink soon after release and has an excellent capacity to age.
Red Wine by Pascual Toso from Argentina, South America. This complex yet well balanced wine presents an elegant style with hints of ripe plums and raspberry fruit. Gentle tannins and slightly toasted, spice and chocolate on the palate and a long, lingering focused finish. Pairs well with red meats, lamb, pasta and fermented cheeses.
Red Wine by Chateau Duhart-Milon from Pauillac, France - Bordeaux. A delicate wine, the initially supple tannins gradually become more powerful. Well-structured on the palate with good density. Precise, fairly full-bodied finish.
Red Wine by Ransom from Oregon. Oregon's Rogue Valley is ripe for the reinterpretation of Bordeaux varietals, and this Cabernet Franc is true to both its heritage and the wild terroir of the Southern Cascades. The wine is a lustrous violet hue in the glass, offering vivid aromas of elderberry and Szechuan peppercorn. A juicy streak of acidity provides contrast and connection to the concentrated flavors of blackcurrant and pancetta and fine weathered stone tannins on the palate with a juicy streak of acidity. The finish persists with a savory vestige of wild huckleberry and alpine sage. Drink now or hold; we believe it will cellar elegantly for at least a decade.
Red Wine by Catena from Argentina, South America. The Catena Malbec presents a deep violet color. This microclimate blend of four unique vineyards offers intense aromas, a soft texture, and concentrated flavor. Deep aromas of ripe red and dark fruits are joined by delicate violet and lavender notes, with traces of vanilla and mocha. A rich, concentrated mouthfeel is highlighted by flavors of blueberries and blackberries with a touch of sweet spice, and leather. The wine finishes with bright acidity, well-integrated and silky tannins, and a flinty minerality that lingers on the palate.
Red Wine by Four Sisters from Victoria, Australia. Subtle fruit tones of raspberry, blackberry and plums are supportedby a hint of spice to create a perfectly balanced wine. A classic partner to wood fired pizza, rack of lamb or barbequedgrilled steak.
