Manic Monday Mixed Case
Your Manic Monday mixed case includes:
Lot 396 California Field Blend
Big, bold, beautiful. Lot 396 is laced with dense layers of blackberry, blueberry, and cocoa notes at the core. High tone accents of violets, chaparral, and spice punctuate a seamlessly balanced lush red fruit palate. Delicious and a Critics Challenge Gold Winner.
Val Di Botte Toscana Rosso I.G.T.
Up front flavors of raspberry and strawberry with hints of roasted pepper and fresh herbs like thyme. The finish is light to medium with a smooth tannin structure. We recommend you open and let it breathe before consuming. Enjoy with margherita pizza with fennel sausage or a pasta dish like Spaghetti Bolognese.
Full of ripe fruit right from the outset. Raspberry, strawberry, plum and black currant notes can all be found, even on the nose. These flavors continue through the palate to the finish. This wine aims to be one that can be opened anytime and pair with your favorite everyday foods like pizza, pasta, and grilled meats.
Kalder Cabernet Sauvignon
Made in the classic style, this wine serves up blackberry, currant, fresh herbs, and a hint of cedar with the lush fruit guiding you along the way. Pair with a perfectly-marbled steak or mushroom-swiss burgers.
Porta De Ravessa Red Blend
The Porta Da Ravessa Tinto (red) is a blend of Trincadeira, Aragones, Alicante-Bouschet, and Casteleo that delivers an earthy, spicy, and rich yet well-rounded wine with a velvety texture. Trincadeira, also called Tinta Amarela, provides deep color, dark berry flavors, and firm tannins. Aragones, which most know well as Tempranillo, enhances the berry/cherry flavors and the soft texture. Castelao, known by some as Periquita, brings a youthful fresh fruitiness. And Alicante-Bouschet offers its trademark deep purple color and some additional softness. Perfect with braised lamb (or goat) shanks, or broiled garlic steak.
A bright ruby red, this wine has charming aromas of ripe red fruit and spices like black pepper with maybe even a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied with elegant tannins, there is no mistaking that this is a juicy red. Chocolate and red berries define the palate with a subtle of coffee in the finish. Brilliant.
A fresh tasting white wine, full of tropical fruit notes and flavors like gooseberry and melon, with a rich mouthfeel and a long leisurely finish make this wine absolutely perfect. It will make a beautiful pair for seafood, tapas or vegetarian cuisine. Simply fantastico!
Val Di Botte Pinot Grigio I.G.T.
Just south of Milan close to the Italian Alps and boarding Alto-Adige, probably the definitive source for the world’s best Pinot Grigio, is where Val di Botte sources the amazing grapes that produce this exquisite white wine. This low alcohol balanced acid driven Pinot Grigio flaunts citrus zest, apple, pears, and nectarine flavors mingling with slight almond and ginger notes. The quintessential summertime wine, it is light, refreshing, and perfect for the season. We recommend this wine served ice cold to maximize the crispness.
Portugal is truly a wonderland of exotic grapes that many in America have never been exposed to before. This Albarrada white, an exclusive wine, is a great example. Bringing together two white grapes native to Portugal, Roupiero and Rabo-de-Ovelha, that most Americans have never sampled, this exotic wine is a great way to be introduced to the wonderful grapes of Portugal.
Camartina Sauvignon Blanc
Made from perfect fruit that comes from an estate vineyard in the Colchagua Valley, the Camartina is extraordinary. Tropical fruit aromas abound immediately in this wine tempered by the slightest bit of herbaceousness and green chili. Refreshing and balanced, these flavors intertwine nicely on the palate. A beautiful aperitif or an accompaniment for a light starter or seafood dish.
Moon Crest Sauvignon Blanc
Fresh and zesty with aromas of melon, freshly cut grass, green apple, sweet citrus zest and fig, this wine has a brisk acidity that carries its fruit and herbal flavors through a refreshing finish. Serve with fresh goat cheese, seafood or vegetarian dishes.
Tied Knot Riesling
A beautifully balanced wine that is delicate, soft and approachable yet refreshingly crisp. Fruit takes center stage in both aromas and flavors of Meyer lemon, pink grapefruit and peach. Grapes for the Tied Knot Riesling come from one of the first vineyards planted to Riesling in California. This is a wine that pairs well with richly sauced seafood, poultry or fruited rice dishes.
