A claret style Zinfandel with full, jammy flavors of blackberry, raspberry, black cherry and wild berry flavors with a hint of black pepper and anise. A nice touch of acidity makes a clean, food friendly finish. Our expert wine panel enjoyed it from appetizers through to dessert and wished they had more.
Sierra Trails Old Vine Zinfandel
Coming to us from some of the oldest Zinfandel plantings in California, the Sierra Trails Old Vine Zinfandel is a complex wine offering aromas of ripe berry, dried plum and red currants. These remarkable fragrances are echoed in the flavoring where a hint tobacco, black pepper spice and sweet oak lifts the fruit and carry them through a lingering finish.
Monarch Glen Merlot
Merlot is the cornerstone of some amazing Bordeaux wines to date. Without Merlot, some of the most treasured wines in the world may not exist. Merlot in California may not be as popular as its French cousin but we think Merlot in California produces wines of such unique character and flavor that when we find one that also is available at a tremendous value, we have to show it off. Monarch Merlot from California is a wine that flaunts aromas of tangy cherry and sweet berries with flavors of berry, plum, and spices. A tasty wine that finishes clean and dry. So what food to pair with this wonderful wine? Roasted chicken rubbed with Herbs De Provence or grilled rack of lamb with fresh mint.
Bellchambers Petite Sirah
Inspired by a memorable vacation along the wine roads in France with guide Peter Bellchambers, celebrated landscape architect, artist and bon vivant, a top California winemaker created this rich and jammy red wine. Petite Sirah is known for ripe fruit wines with flavors of dense plum, blackberry, with spicy notes and a full tannin structure. Bellchambers is no exception and this wine adds to the standard of the beloved Petite Sirah with added notes of coffee and white pepper, making this wine a perfect accompaniment to the grilling and barbecue enthusiast in us all.
