Immerse your senses with aromas and flavors of ripe blackberry, licorice and spices. The finish is long and the mouthfeel is silky and fruity. Enjoy this Spanish red with grilled flank steak and roasted tomatoes to bring out the near perfect acid structure.

Cachil Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva
Colchagua Valley in Chile is home to many amazing wineries that produce gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon, just like Cachil. This reserve offering from one of the premier Cabernet Sauvignon producing regions of Valle Central boasts beautiful flavors from this stunning vintage. Currants, raspberry, and cassis take the lead, followed by hints of cocoa. Enjoyably lighter in body than most cabs from this region, it has a medium body and a smooth silky finish. Chile is known for being innovative with wine over the last decade and this is a great example of why wines in from this region are a perfect fit for most occasions. It’s no wonder why Colchagua Valley was previously named Wine Region of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

Castillo de Albali Rioja
Spain’s most famous wine region is renowned for creating top quality wines with exceptional ageing ability. It lies in northern Spain, along the River Ebro from which the region’s name is derived. Elegance and poise are the hallmarks of wines made here. Rioja’s different soil types, together with the use of modern and traditional growing practices, allow winemakers to produce a wide range of wines with different personalities, although always within the framework of the Denominación de Origen Calificada (D.O.C.) regulations. Castillo de Albali flaunts deep cherry red with purple reflections and powerful aromas of red fruits, strawberries, and flowers on the nose. Fresh and smooth on the palate, while the fruit intensity mirrors the aromas and includes lovely long finish. A wonderful wine to complement a range of dishes including red meat, pasta, cheese and paella, and some fish dishes like “bacalao a la riojana”.
Poco a Poco Tempranillo
30 years ago, Tempranillo was not even on the map of American wine drinkers. Only a select few in the know enjoyed the powerful wines coming from the Iberian Peninsula. They were heavily laced in fruit, sweet tobacco, and lots of oak. Most wine lovers have had a love-hate relationship with Tempranillo and it wasn’t until the last 10 years that innovative winemakers have been producing Tempranillo with a balance of power and finesse. Like Poco a Poco which means "bit by bit", strides in progress were taken to get to the end result, a wine of balance. With flavors of cherry, plum, sweet tobacco, tomato, and vanilla, Poco a Poco Tempranillo is for any Spanish wine enthusiast and is too good to be missed.
