Go for the Gold Reds 12-Pack
2014 Jean Boisselier Red Blend - France (x2)
This soft and subtle French red comes to us from Coteaux Bourguignons, a newly designated region that includes Burgundy. 2014 Jean Boisselier Coteaux Bourguignons AOP features Gamay grapes, a member of the Pinot Noir family that produce light-bodied reds like this easy-drinking summer favorite. Pour a glass and enjoy prominent strawberry and raspberry flavors followed by a subtle hint of black pepper. This wine is delicious chilled to around 54 degrees, especially when paired with poultry, rabbit, tomato sauces, and steamed vegetables. The soft tannins even complement fish, for those who love reds over everything.

Pico Malbec’s flavor profile is a salute to this style of wine’s homeland, Cahors in France. It drinks profoundly, with notes of blackberry and herbs.

2014 Arnozan Bordeaux Lussac-St. Emilion- France (x2)
The hilly vineyard that nurtures and grows this immaculate Bordeaux’s grapes is the first vineyard to be designated a World Heritage Site. Lussac-Saint-Émilion is full of charm, with historic houses and Romanesque churches dominating its many hillsides. The soil can be Périgord sand or clay-limestone, producing a variety of wines; many of which can be enjoyed young, like this offering from Arnozan. 2014 Arnozan Bordeaux Lussac-Saint-Émilion is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which results in a vividly colored red wine, with red ripe flavors of cherry and spice, and hints of cedar on the nose and palate. This perfectly balanced red has silky tannins, and a well-rounded finish.

2015 Tremo Maceracion Carbonica Tempranillo - Spain (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.
