Cachil Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva
Chile’s Colchagua Valley is known for gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon, like this reserve offering from Cachil. Cachil Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon boasts beautiful flavors of currants, raspberry and cassis with hints of cocoa. It’s enjoyably lighter than the average cabernet, with a medium body and smooth finish. Taste this excellent red and you’ll understand why Colchagua Valley was named Wine Region of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

Albarrada is a new and exclusive winery that showcases local Portuguese grapes. This excellent red wine (or vinho tinto, in Portuguese) features Castelão grapes, which thrive on Portugal’s drier, harsher climate. The resulting wine is aromatic and fruit-forward with notes of red berries and mild floral notes. We suggest Albarrada Red for fans of Tempranillo and Barbera, especially if you pair it with French charcuterie or Korean short ribs.
Bertoli Sangiovese di Puglia IGT
Classics started off great, and developed into something respected, excellent, refined, and reliable. Think gourmet grilled cheese, your favorite singer’s surprising 10th album, or Sangiovese wine--the most famous Italian grape, known for its delicate and elegant fruitiness. Bertoli Sangiovese di Puglia IGT croons from the glass with supple berry flavors, silky mouth feel, and a lively encore.

Cala de Poeti Rosso
Patience is a virtue, and so is this delicious Italian red wine. Open Cala de Poeti Rosso early, so that it has time to bring its inviting flavors of strawberry and raspberry to the forefront. The smooth red offers hints of herbs and roasted pepper, and really pops when paired with classic, tomato-based Italian dishes.
In Ancient Aztec, Tremo means vibrant and fresh. This is the perfect description for this cutting edge wine from Spain’s Rioja region. Tempranillo is Spain’s signature grape, exploding with flavors of strawberry, plum, and black currant in this full-bodied, well-structured red that finds itself balanced perfectly by soft, elegant tannins. Tremo Tempranillo is versatile and food-friendly, especially if you pair it with a juicy burger or a slice of pizza.

Sierra Trails Old Vine Zinfandel
Coming to us from some of the oldest Zinfandel plantings in California, Sierra Trails Old Vine Zinfandel is a complex red with aromas of ripe berry, dried plum, and red currants. The flavor hints at tobacco, black pepper, and sweet oak, which carries the fruits through a lingering finish.
