Red Wine by Bella Vineyards from Sonoma County, California. The Sonoma County zinfandel entices with a floral bouquet of violets and rose petals. The palate continues with anise and pretty red fruit, a silky texture and smooth, soft finish. This wine is approachable and fun, yet structured and deep.
Red Wine by Borjon from Sierra Foothills, California. Ruby red, the 2012 Zinfandel Reposado is loaded with aromas of fresh strawberries laced with cedar and clove shavings. Soft and jammy on the palate, the wine is highlighted by bright red fruit acidity. Extremely easy to drink with ample fresh fruit and a long finish, this makes an excellent wine to pair with your Sunday BBQ.
Red Wine by Andrew Rich from Columbia Valley, Washington. A blend of our top three Syrah vineyards shows great precision on a medium-bodied frame. With flavors of blueberry and licorice and a suave, singing mouth feel (that is, it has richness and good acidity), it can easily slumber in your cellar for half a decade or more and can be enjoyed now with rich and meaty dishes.
Red Wine by Monchiero Carbone from Piedmont, Italy. A combination of stainless steel and oak aging are used with the vinification of this wine: the stainless steel (70%) preserves Barbera's youthful fruit and acidity while the oak (30%) adds a bitof depth and concentration. The result is a ruby-red wine with a fragrant nose of black cherry underscored by earthy notes of damp soil. Smooth and full-bodied on the palate, it offers a magnificent sensation of freshness.
Red Wine by Chateau des Eyrins from Margaux, France - Bordeaux.
Red Wine by McIntyre from Central Coast, California. The 2013 growing season was nearly perfect. Consequently, this Merlot is one of the finest we have ever produced. The core is deep, rich, juicy and packed with fruit. Highlights include blackberry, cassis, licorice, dried herbs and lavender. The palate is dense, but extremely well structured thanks to firm acids and fine-grained tannins. While it drinks beautifully now, this Merlot should expand and evolve over the next 5-10 years.
Red Wine by Seghesio from Sonoma County, California. Spicy, lush black fruit of Alexander Valley. Briary and raspberry flavors, along with structure, of cooler Dry Creek Valley. Balanced and elegantly structured.
Red Wine by Jeff Cohn Cellars from Napa Valley, California. 100% Zinfandel from the St. Peter's Church Vineyard, one of Jeff's favorites that produces the most amazing expression of Zinfandel. It's ethereal, it fills all of your senses, with briary blackberry, cocoa, and roasted coffee notes with subtle hints of salted toffee and cracked black pepper.
Red Wine by Reynolds Family Winery from Carneros, California. Soft cranberry elements and mild earth forward notes showcase this classic Burgundian Pinot Noir. Bright Raspberry and Pomegranate flavors on the front open to a clean texture and only a hint of oak on the mid palate. A uniquely smooth finish allow this wine to stand out amongst is competition. A mild mineraltiy from the terroir lend this wine to be enjoyable by all.
Red Wine by Matteo Correggia from Piedmont, Italy. Correggia's Solo is fresh and youthful, a quality enhanced by vinification and aging all in stainless steel. It's the perfect crossover wine for Pinot Noir lovers looking for something with a little more under the hood. Aromas of dark cherry and raspberry fill the nose; on the pallet it is juicy and vibrant with a persistent finish. Blend: 45% Nebbiolo, 45% Barbera, 10% Brachetto
Red Wine by Le Cinciole from Tuscany, Italy. In structure and elegance Le Cinciole recalls much of the Montosoli/Pertimali cru in Montalcino, with a Sangiovese perfume that explodes from the glass in the same way nebbiolo does from a La Morra or Alta Bussia Barolo. Kirsch, leather, and spices leap from the glass.
Red Wine by Cline from California. Wonderful, fat strawberry, with coffee and chocolate characters. Ripe fruit and soft tannins make this a mouth-coating rich vintage. Dark berries, coffee and chocolate with great vanilla oak character and a long lingering finish. Pairs with pasta dishes with a light tomato sauce and grilled meats.
Red Wine by Marchesi di Barolo from Piedmont, Italy. The color is a lively and brilliant dark ruby-red. The perfume is fresh and intense with clean scents of wild berries, currants and sour black cherry. A light hint of vanilla and toasted oak. The flavor is warm and robust, full-bodied, pleasant and balanced. This Barbera's sensory attributes make it an outstanding accompaniment for imposing first courses and main-course, meats boiled or roasted.
Red Wine by Watermill from Oregon. We love the Mantis. Both the wine and the bug. Praying Mantises prey on pests that harm grapes and vines, making our job that much easier in the vineyard. While there are often a few Mantises lurking in the vines (and sunning themselves outside our tasting room) during the warmer months, one day a few years back we discovered a block of Syrah in our vineyard that was covered with mantises. We'd never seen anything quite like it, so when the time came to name our reserve Syrah, we knew it had to be the Mantis. As for the wine itself, the Mantis Syrah uses the same two vineyards in the Rocks as our regular Walla Walla Syrah - Stone Valley and our Watermill Estate - but we select juice with greater concentration of fruit and spice for the Praying Mantis. The juice selected for this wine and its barrel-aging program are both designed to produce an age-worthy Syrah that's still very accessible now if you can't wait.
Red Wine by Yalumba from Coonawarra, Australia. Full depth with a red crimson hue. The bouquet is of mediumto full intensity with bright berry and plum fruits with a seaspraytang that is typical of Yalumba The Menzies. The palateis full bodied and rich, opening with plush red fruits yielding atextured mid-palate and yielding to a lengthy finish. The wine drinks beautifully now and will continue to evolve favourably for at least fifteen years. Pair with: pomegranate and fennel glazed rack of Limestone Coast lamb.
Red Wine by Tierra Divina from Argentina, South America. Our ancient vineyards lie high on the slopes of the Andes in the Luj n and Valle de Uco regions of Mendoza and produce deep and dark, spicy and aromatic wines that are full with ripe, juicy, black fruit flavors, and inviting, complex textures. Enjoy as the Argentines do, with pizza, pastas, and simply grilled meats.
Red Wine by Nugan Estate from Australia. Dense red in appearance with a youthful crimson hue. Sweet aromas of cherry and red berry fruit melded with mint and delicate allspice nuances. Sweet flavours of blood plum and mulberry with overtones of earth and spice tantalise the palate. Pairs perfectly with red meat dishes or try with roast lamb or gourmet sausages.
Red Wine by Francis Ford Coppola from California. This Zinfandel has a luscious velvety mouthfeel and rich, gorgeous spices on the nose. Even though the tannins are fairly subdued, the wine has robust character from its earthy nuances and seasoned oak.
