Anta da Serra Red Blend
Anta Da Serra is for wine lovers seeking a bold red with flavors of blackberry, raspberry, and cherry. This soft, full red blend has a deep color, and retains the characteristics of the Portuguese grapes that make up its lush character.
Vina Albali Reserva Tempranillo
We recommend opening your bottle of Vina Albali Tempranillo and walking away for half an hour, allowing the wine to breath. Your restraint will pay off, as this Spanish red bursts forth with ripe fruit flavors of cherry and strawberry, combined with a perfumed nose. It drinks well, with a fine structure and a smooth finish. Definitely worth the wait.
We don’t own smoking jackets, but drinking this velvety Chianti makes us feel like we’re wearing them. Like a friendly debate, this plush Italian red is intense but refined, with wild berry flavors and a slight smokiness. Bertoli Chianti DOCG is a delight at the dinner table. Enjoy it with cheese and charcuterie, hearty pastas, pizza, and meat or fish.
Pavillon La Tourelle Bordeaux
Pavillon La Tourelle’s unique wines draw their character from the soil, climate and winemaking traditions that make up Bordeaux’s inimitable terroir. This blend of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon is a vivid red with medium depth and clean but intense cherry and black currant flavors. Pavillon la Tourelle is an enjoyable, supple, smooth wine with an easy finish.
Burke Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
This classic Cabernet serves up lush blackberry and currant flavors, with hints of fresh herbs and cedar. Burke Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon pairs perfectly with foods with savory, umami flavors like smoky cheeseburgers or mom’s homemade meatloaf.
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.
Cachil Sauvignon Blanc Reserva
Chile’s Colchagua Valley is known for gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon, like this reserve offering from Cachil. Cachil Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon boasts beautiful flavors of currants, raspberry and cassis with hints of cocoa. It’s enjoyably lighter than the average cabernet, with a medium body and smooth finish. Taste this excellent red and you’ll understand why Colchagua Valley was named Wine Region of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
Bear Hug Winemaker Select Chardonnay
Chardonnay is the world’s most versatile white grape, with variations depending on the growing region and picking time. Within each lot, a coveted grouping is bottled separately and known as Winemaker Select. This is often the most accessible and enjoyable Chardonnay that you can get. Bear Hug Winemaker Select California Chardonnay is our best of the best. From the first sip, you will find flavors of green apple, nectarine, honeysuckle, and melon, all in a perfect harmonious balance.

Le Parlement Bordeaux Blanc
When we found Le Parlement Bordeaux Blanc, we were blown away by this delicate, layered white wine with generous flavors of zesty citrus, fresh grass, gooseberry and honeysuckle. White Bordeaux is not on most people's wine radar, but we love this sophisticated wine that has a Sauvignon Blanc’s appeal, with an added complexity that appeals to true enthusiasts.
