River's End Cabernet Sauvignon - California
Monterey’s Salinas Valley, the home of this delicious Cabernet Sauvignon, receives intense sunshine throughout the day. At night, cool air funnels in from the Pacific Ocean, giving the vines optimal balance to fully ripen. The end result is River’s End Cabernet, a satisfying and youthful red with flavors of black currant, cherry, red bell pepper, and baking spices.
Val di Botte Chianti DOCG - Chianti, Tuscany, Italy
This is one of our favorites from the Chianti region inside Tuscany. It is lean with full flavor, and blended with a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon to give it an extra lift in presence.
Castillo de Albali Rioja - Rioja, Spain
Rioja is Spain’s most famous wine region, renowned for its elegant, wonderfully aging wines. Rioja’s different soil types allow winemakers to produce a wide range of top quality wines. Castillo de Albali flaunts powerful aromas of red fruits, strawberries, and flowers with a fresh, smooth taste and lovely long finish. This is a wonderful wine to complement red meat, pasta, cheese and paella, or classic local fish dish bacalao a la riojana.
