River's End Reserve Merlot - California - (x2)
There’s a reason that medium-bodied and versatile Merlot is one of the most popular red wines. It’s beloved for the red fruits and soft tannins that make it delicious with a variety of foods, from rich red meats and stews to lighter white meat and fish dishes. River’s End Merlot is a California favorite, with an award-winning heritage. This new 2014 vintage is brilliant with ripe berry notes in the aromas and flavors, smoothed by a touch of oak. This is the wine you want on your shelf for almost any occasion.
El Portal Red Blend - California - (x2)
One sip of this bold and flavorful red, and we can see the landscape near the California coast: ocean breezes, rich soil, clear sun… 2015 El Portal Red Blend balances Zinfandel and Merlot with vivid Syrah to create a food-friendly blend with flavors of black cherry, followed by notes of vanilla and mocha.
Fair Oaks Zinfandel - California - (x2)
Fair Oaks’ claret-style Zinfandel is packed with rich berry jam flavors and hints of black pepper and anise. A nice touch of acidity creates a clean, food friendly finish. Our expert wine panel enjoyed it from appetizers through to dessert and wished they had more.
