15 on the 15th Reds
Your 15 on the 15th selections include:
Vista De Noche Malbec (x2)
Drinks profoundly, with dark fruits such as blackberry with herbaceous notes, and that a nice smoky overlay, destined to be best friends with many grilled meats. It’s full bodied, has a personality, and has a finish that can please the wine drinker in all of us.
Fair Oaks Zinfandel (x2)
A claret style Zinfandel with full, jammy flavors of blackberry, raspberry, black cherry and wild berry flavors with a hint of black pepper and anise. A nice touch of acidity makes a clean, food friendly finish. Our expert wine panel enjoyed it from appetizers through to dessert and wished they had more.
Pico Malbec (x2)
Its flavor profile is a salute to the homeland of Malbec, Cahors in France. It drinks profoundly, with dark fruits such as blackberry with herbaceous notes, and that nice overlay of smoky, destined to be best friends with many grilled meats. It’s full bodied, has a personality, and has a finish that can please the wine drinker in all of us.
Granite Ridge Pinot Noir (x2)
Granite Ridge Pinot Noir has beautiful cherry and cranberry like flavors, hints of herbaceous notes, with an elegant, low acid mouth feel and a delight finish. You can pair this red wine with a variety of foods like white pizza with fresh herbs, grilled fish, and spiced poultry, just to name a few.
Owens Crossing Zinfandel (x2)
Nothing suits a hearty beef roast, baked Portobello mushrooms or a filet mignon topped with a tasty blue cheese sauce, like this muscular, yet restrained Zinfandel. It showcases the essence of blackberry bramble and raspberry jam balanced by a thread of licorice, leather, cedar and exotic spice.
Rivers End Reserve Merlot (x2)
A wonderful wine from the River’s End winemakers with ripe berry fruit flavors and aromas with a nice touch of oak. An amazingly versatile choice for serving with grilled duck, turkey, chicken, braised lamb, pork or beef – and a nice partner for dishes featuring a rich tomato sauce.
Albarrada Red (x2)
Albarrada is a new and exclusive winery that makes amazing wine that showcases local grapes. This red wine (or vinho tinto, in Portuguese) features a local grape, called Castelão. Native to the soils of Portugal, Castelão. It is unusual, finding a better home in the drier and harsher climate of Portugal than the normally more grape friendly soils of temperate climates. When well cared for, the wine that results is aromatic and fruit-forward with notes of red berries and slight hints of floral notes.
Longchase Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon (x1)
A 2013 Vintage Cabernet, this wine has flavors of cherry, raspberry and cinnamon with a medium finish and a light mouth feel. This is a wine that can be enjoyed every day no matter what you are doing, ordering pizza from your favorite neighborhood joint or grilling with lots of friends.
