Novembrrrrr Closeout Mixed Case
Your Novembrrrrr Closeout Mixed Case includes one bottle each of
Albarrada Red - Altenjano, Portugal
Albarrada is a new and exclusive winery that showcases local Portuguese grapes. This excellent red wine (or vinho tinto, in Portuguese) features Castelão grapes, which thrive on Portugal’s drier, harsher climate. The resulting wine is aromatic and fruit-forward with notes of red berries and mild floral notes. We suggest Albarrada Red for fans of Tempranillo and Barbera, especially if you pair it with French charcuterie or Korean short ribs.
Bertoli Sangiovese di Puglia I.G.T. - Puglia, Italy
Classics started off great, and developed into something respected, excellent, refined, and reliable. Think gourmet grilled cheese, your favorite singer’s surprising 10th album, or Sangiovese wine--the most famous Italian grape, known for its delicate and elegant fruitiness. Bertoli Sangiovese di Puglia IGT croons from the glass with supple berry flavors, silky mouth feel, and a lively encore.

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.

Della Flora Pinot Grigio I.G.T. - Pavia, Italy
Produced by Coli, a leading wine producer in Italy since 1926, this Pinot Grigio from the Pavia region of Lombardy defines Italian Pinot Grigio. Sun-laced days and cool winter nights allow the grapes to ripen consistently, ensuring the proper balance of flavors and acids, resulting in an amazing drinking experience. You can expect flavors of citrus zest, apples, pears and nectarines, accompanied by mild notes of almond and ginger. We recommend serving this wine ice cold to maximize its refreshing attributes.
Heartthrob Chardonnay - California
We’re seriously crushin’ on this classic California Chardonnay. It’s romantically refreshing, with an un-oaked, fruit-forward personality that shares lush flavors of nectarine, ripe melon, and apple. It has a natural crispness that carries the fruit through a clean and dry finish. Our favorite occasion to open this versatile wine is when we’re eating seafood, pasta, or chicken—especially if it has an herbed butter or cream sauce.
La Petite Tour Classic White - Callifornia
La Petite Tour winery has been a highlight of California’s wine scene since the 1980s. Over the years, this white blend has remained a family favorite, and was originally only made in small lots for their own table. La Petite Tour Classic White is a delicately aromatic, medium-bodied wine with flavors of ripe pear and surprisingly bright citrus notes. It’s a versatile food wine, that pairs well with fish, grilled chicken or vegetables, and we’ve found that it’s the bottle that thrills white wine fans…and converts red wine drinkers.
