Tremo Maceracion Carbonica Tempranillo - Rioja, Spain
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.

Sierra Trails Old Vines Zinfandel - California
Coming to us from some of the oldest Zinfandel plantings in California, Sierra Trails Old Vine Zinfandel is a complex red with aromas of ripe berry, dried plum, and red currants. The flavor hints at tobacco, black pepper, and sweet oak, which carries the fruits through a lingering finish.
