Customer Favorites - Mixed 6-PK
Your selection includes one bottle of the following six wines:
Black Pheasant Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc is a wine that is enjoyable all year long. The crisp and refreshing profile makes it enjoyable as a cocktail party wine or a patio refresher. When you add food into the mix, the wine explodes with flavor when paired with summer salads, fresh fruits, roasted lean meats like turkey and citrus glazed pork. This is a versatile wine and that is why we love Black Pheasant Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of grapefruit and orange zest and a back note of honeyed melon lead to flavors of citrus, melon and pear.
Tied Knot Riesling
A beautifully balanced wine that is delicate, soft and approachable yet refreshingly crisp. Fruit takes center stage in both aromas and flavors of meyer lemon, pink grapefruit and peach. Grapes for the Tied Knot Riesling come from one of the first vineyards planted to Riesling in California. This is a wine that pairs well with richly sauced seafood, poultry or fruited rice dishes.
Gina Pinot Grigio
Pinot Grigio is one of the world's most popular white grapes. It has taken many homes in wine growing regions around the world and even has a few aliases such as Pinot Gris, Petite Gris, and many more. No matter what it may be named, it has the same characterisitic. It is fruity, crisp, clean, and dry. It pairs well with seafood dishes and is perfect for sipping as a cocktail wine on a sunny day. The Italians do Pinot Grigio right, with focus on the minerality to make sure that the fruit and minerality work together like components in a wrist watch.
Albarrada Red Blend
Certainly, when you think of Portuguese wine, the first thing that comes to mind is the signature port. Port is delicious but the layers of Portuguese winemaking are so much deeper than that. 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. This profile has made Castelão one of the most beloved grapes of Portugal and this Albarrada is a brilliant representation of the native grape.
After the stunning success of the earlier vintages of Carma Carménère, the vintners at Carma stepped it up yet again for this next vintage. The grapes used for the impressive Carma 2012 Carménère come from the winery’s estate vineyard in the sector of Palmilla, a region considered by many to be in “the center of gravity” when it comes to Chilean wine. The 10 year-old vines benefit from deep soils that are clay-like and sandy, are trained onto vertical shoot-positioned trellises, and cane pruned. The wine is a violet red color and the aroma is of fresh red fruit—raspberries and cherries—along with notes of herbs and toasted coffee beans. The aromas follow through on the palate with red fruits, spices and bittersweet chocolate. It is an elegant wine with juicy concentration and persistence.
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.
