New August Wines Reds Case includes two bottles each of
Jean Boisselier Red Blend Coteaux
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.
Mendoza is Argentina’s most esteemed wine region in Argentina. Malbec is the country’s signature grape. So, it will come as no surprise that the bar has been set high for Mendoza Malbecs. We’re excited to tell you that Encantadora Malbec easily clears the bar with enthralling, fresh flavors of blackberries, cherries and ripe plums. Light oaking adds a toasty vanilla undertone, and the round tannins contribute to a lingering finish. Ultimately, Encantadora Malben is a simply enjoyable, easy-drinking Malbec that helps set the standard for its region.
Monarch Glen Merlot
Monarch Glen Merlot is a tasty red wine that flaunts aromas of tangy cherry and sweet berries, leading into a clean, dry finish. Looking for a food to pair with this wonderful wine? Try herb-roasted chicken, or grilled rack of lamb with fresh mint.
