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.
Burke Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
From North Coast to Temecula, Cabernet Sauvignon Spans the entire state, being the most recognized grape in California. So it’s safe to say that California winemakers have had sometime since the grape’s colonization from Bordeaux to get it just right. It is even more amazing when you can find a Cabernet that surpasses expectations at such a value. Burke Family Reserve Cabernet is an enjoyable wine from the moment the cork is popped. Made in the classic style, this wine serves up blackberry, currant, fresh herbs, and a hint of cedar with the lush fruit guiding you along the way. This wine goes perfectly with foods with umami flavors like burgers with bacon and Gorgonzola cheese or mom’s homemade meatloaf.
Geja's Private Reserve Red Blend
As the name says, this is a wine big on flavor and bold, with ripe flavors floating over a fine structure of natural fruit acidity. If you haven’t already tried it, there’s no better time than now. The Geja’s Big Bold Red is a feisty, impudent red with prominent, aggressive tannins that are fresh and forward. This is one wine you can enjoy every day of the week at a price that’s hard to beat.
Monarch Glen Merlot
Merlot is the cornerstone of some amazing Bordeaux wines to date. Without Merlot, some of the most treasured wines in the world may not exist. Merlot in California may not be as popular as its French cousin but we think Merlot in California produces wines of such unique character and flavor that when we find one that also is available at a tremendous value, we have to show it off. Monarch Merlot from California is a wine that flaunts aromas of tangy cherry and sweet berries with flavors of berry, plum, and spices. A tasty wine that finishes clean and dry. So what food to pair with this wonderful wine? Roasted chicken rubbed with Herbs De Provence or grilled rack of lamb with fresh mint.
