2015 Treehaven Petite Sirah
Petite Sirah is a spicy, medium-bodied red that is beloved for its beautiful, deep color. Treehaven’s take on this fan-favorite offers flavors of sugar plum, smashed blueberry, black pepper, and baker’s chocolate. Petite SIrah grapes are rare, with French origin. Now, they are mainly grown in California, and take up less than 10,000 planted acres around the world.

2015 Monarch Glen Barbera - California
Enjoy the luscious flavors of ripe cherry and dark blackberry that join in harmony with notes of sweet spice and vanilla in every glass of 2015 Monarch Glen Barbera. This juicy, food-friendly red pairs with a wide variety of food, but we especially love it with mushroom risotto.
Val di Botte Toscana Rosso I.G.T. - Tuscany, Italy
This central Italian red boasts up-front flavors of raspberry and strawberry with hints of roasted pepper and fresh herbs. The finish is light to medium with a smooth tannin structure. Pour Val di Botte Toscana Rosso with your favorite tomato-based Italian dishes, especially if you open it early and let it breathe before drinking.

2015 Nguilleu Cabernet Sauvignon - Central Valley, Chile
Named for a sun-like, fruit-bearing plant that grows in the southern Andes mountains, Nguilleu wines are emblematic of the balance of tradition and innovation that characterizes the growing Chilean wine scene. 2015 Nguilleu Cabernet Sauvignon is a smoky and savory take on this beloved red wine varietal. Tart flavors of cherry, cranberry, and red currant ride along on silky tannins, mingling with a smoky overlay that starts on the nose and floats through to the finish. We suggest pairing this powerful red with spicy, rich foods, like Mexican pork with red sauce.
