Friends & Family Holiday Sale Mixed Case
Your Friends & Family Holiday Sale Mixed Case includes one bottle each of:
El Portal Syrah - California
Rich, purple syrah grapes yield some of the world’s darkest red wines. El Portal Syrah is an exciting take on this full-bodied wine, with an immediate flavor of dark berries, and savory notes of black olive and pepper. With such a big taste, Syrah holds its own with flavorful foods like smoky meats and smelly, soft cheeses. In other words, El Portal Syrah will be your blue cheese burger’s best friend. Introduce them immediately.
Yapa Carmenere - Colchagua Valley, Chile
Carmanere is a dry, medium-bodied red with Bordeaux origins and a Chilean pedigree. Yapa Carmenere is a vivid, violet red color with aromas of fresh raspberries and cherries that follow through on the palate with spices and bittersweet chocolate. Serve this wine with a zesty pork dish, or a hearty tomato seafood stew.
Granite Ridge Pinotage - South Africa
Since the 1920s, vintners have been honing Pinotage, a genetic hybrid of Pinot Noir and Hermitage (or Cinsault) grapes that yields a truly unique light red wine. South Africa’s Winery of Good Hope has perfected the hybrid, with a Pinotage that brings out the aspects of both grapes. In addition to the notes of cherry from the Pinot Noir, and the spiciness from the Hermitage, you'll enjoy a nice juicy palate with balance, length, and a bit of spice, especially if you drink it slightly chilled.
Della Flora Sangiovese I.G.T. - Puglia, Italy
Sangiovese is Italy’s flagship red, with each region offering its own satisfying take on this savory red wine. Della Flora Sangiovese is on the lighter side, with flavors of red currant, raspberry, and earthy clay. It pairs perfectly with tomatoes, especially if you decant your wine for 30-45 minutes before enjoying—that’s just enough time to make a marinara from scratch.
Spencer Family Reserve Cask One Red Blend - California
Fill your glass with this deliciously smooth, robust red. Sweet black fruit aromas added to layers of ripe black cherry and plum flavors reflect a heavenly marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Syrah. Forward fruit flavors and a velvety texture make Spencer Family Cask Reserve the go-to red wine for everyday enjoyment.

Le Parlement Bordeaux - Bordeaux, France
Perfectly balanced 2014 Le Parlement Bordeaux Rouge draws its savory and complex character from the soil, climate, and time-tested traditions that make up Bordeaux’s inimitable terroir. This supple, smooth-drinking red is vivid in the glass, and thrills the palate with flavors of black cherry and currant, hints of cedar, silky tannins, and a well-rounded finish. Made from a thoughtful blend of 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Cabernet Franc.
Treehaven Lane Chardonnay - California
This classic, fruit-forward Chardonnay offers lush flavors of apple, citrus and melon, with a note of hazelnut. 2014 Treehaven Lane Chardonnay has a naturally crisp acidity that adds structure and carries the fruit flavors through a clean, dry finish. We love to serve this multiple award-winner with fresh seafood or poultry, especially dishes featuring an herbed cream or butter sauce.
