Camartina Carmènére (x2)
Located directly between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Chile’s Central Valley is a land of beautiful options. Camartina Carmanere speaks to this beauty and versatility with aromas of fresh raspberries and cherries, along with notes of herbs and toasted coffee beans.

Big Cirrus Single Vineyard Cabernet Carmènére (x2)
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. As you sip, you’ll enjoy subtle flavors of herbs, white pepper and vanilla, intertwining to create a highly pleasing red that we’re excited to add to our library of incredible Chilean wines.
Ruby Vine Red Blend (x2)
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 (x1)
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 (x2)
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.

Val di Botte Sangiovese IGT (x2)
With unlimited coastal access, warm Southern Italian sun, and 24-hour cool breezes, the Puglia wine region produces balanced, fruity grapes which match the local, tomato-rich food. If you want an earthy red to go with your favorite pizza or pasta, Val di Botte Sangiovese Puglia is what you’re looking for, especially if you decant it for half an hour to let the flavors of red currant and raspberry really open up.
