Vina Albali Tempranillo Reserva - Valdenpenas, Spain - (x2)
We recommend opening your bottle of Viña Albali Tempranillo and walking away for half an hour, allowing the wine to breath.

Granite Ridge Pinotage - South Africa - (x2)
Since the 1920s, vintners have been honing Pinotage, a genetic hybrid of Pinot Noir and Hermitage (or Cinsault) grapes that yields a truly unique light red wine. South Africa’s Winery of Good Hope has perfected the hybrid, with a Pinotage that brings out the aspects of both grapes. In addition to the notes of cherry from the Pinot Noir, and the spiciness from the Hermitage, you'll enjoy a nice juicy palate with balance, length, and a bit of spice, especially if you drink it slightly chilled.
Turnstone Pinot Noir - Valle Central, Chile - (x2)
2015 Turnstone Pinot Noir hails from Chile’s Central Valley, where gentle Pacific Ocean breezes create the ideal climate for winemaking. Forest-like aromas start on the nose and follow through on the palate, where they’re joined by tart fruits in this bold red that will impress fans of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Coastal Passage Central Coast Pinot Noir - Central Coast, California - (x3)
With a prestigious Central Coast appellation, 2012 Coastal Passage Pinot Noir is a smooth and fruity red. Bountiful flavors of red cherry, strawberry, lychee, and cola mingle with a hint of cinnamon, creating a joyful wine that is highly drinkable on its own, and wonderful with spicy foods.
