El Portal Red Blend
Both Zinfandel and Merlot are popular grapes on their own, and this combination with Syrah proves that the sum can be greater than its parts. In this smooth and ripe-flavored red, blackberry and cherry aromas are joined by notes of black currant, plum, spice and violet. Touches of sweet tobacco and spice accentuate the fruit-forward flavor, making El Portal Red Blend very food friendly.
Fair Oaks Zinfandel
Fair Oaks’ claret-style Zinfandel is packed with rich berry jam flavors and hints of black pepper and anise. A nice touch of acidity creates a clean, food friendly finish. Our expert wine panel enjoyed it from appetizers through to dessert and wished they had more.

If you haven’t already tried this multiple award-winner, there’s no better time than now. This is one wine you can enjoy every day of the week.

Bertoli Primitivo di Puglia IGT
Think of that perfectly broken-in pair of boots. They’re tough enough for bad weather, but refined enough to add something to your favorite suit. Bertoli Primitivo di Puglia IGT is those boots. This powerful red, from Italy’s heel, soft and deep with flavorful vanilla, raspberry and spice notes. Pack it for a trip, or pair it with spicy sausages, venison, duck, or tomato dishes like chili and lasagna.
Garnacha is the Spanish version of Grenache, a red wine that is immediately recognizable for its flavors of ripe fruit and spice. Buscado Garnacha produces intense and pleasant aromas of licorice and wild berries with slight mineral undertones. Flavors of ripe red fruit, fresh thyme and hints of minerals linger on the finish of this silky and full-bodied Spanish Garnacha.
Cuvèe Joëlle Malbec Et Merlot
Among the many noteworthy French grapes, two have become especially treasured for their stunning wines. Malbec has a dark, rustic nature, while Merlot features a soft, fruit forward, and herbaceous character. When blended, they craft a unique flavor. Cuvèe Joëlle fuses red plum, raspberry, blackberry, vanilla, and fresh herbs. This exciting red blend is meant to be paired with fun dishes like bacon-wrapped blue cheese stuffed dates, pungent cheeses, and bacon blue cheese burgers.
