Big Cirrus Single Vineyard Cabernet Carmènére
The Chilean wine scene has exploded over the last decade, with critics heaping praise on impressive vintages coming from the countryside’s new estates. This beautiful, single-vineyard Cabernet Carmènére from Big Cirrus represents all of Chile’s winemaking progress, and justifies its accolades. Charming aromas of ripe raspberries and currants tie into the wine’s ruby red hue.

Ruby Vine Red Blend
This bright and robust California red is one of the most versatile wines we’ve encountered. Enjoy Ruby Vine Red Blend on its own or with a meal of your choice. It offers aromas of juniper with flavors of dried fig and caramelized vanilla that soften and expand when given time to breathe.
Treehaven Lane Barbera
This luscious and supremely drinkable darker red wine is best enjoyed in its youthful stages, where juicy flavors of blackberry and cherry mingle merrily with a subtle note of vanilla. 2015 Treehaven Lane Barbera has a bright acidity that makes it a delicious pairing with dark meats, mushroom and herb dishes, and even blue cheese.
Tremo Maceración Carbónica Tempranillo
Carbonic Maceration is a cutting edge winemaking method where a carbon dioxide rich environment is used to ferment juice inside the grape. This results in very fruity wines with very little mouth-drying tannins. While most popular in France, Bodega Luis Alegre is using Carbonic Maceration in Spain on masterfully grown Tempranillo and Viura grapes for a juicy wine with an aromatic nose of raspberry, cherry and slight violet notes. Soft acidity provides just enough balance for fresh fruit notes that meet licorice on the finish.
