Cachil Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva
Colchagua Valley, Chile is home to many amazing wineries producing 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 named Wine Region of the Year in 2005 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
Anta da Serra Red Blend
A blend of native grapes to the country of Portugal, Anta De Serra is for red wine lovers who love lush bold fruit with a full mouthfeel, while retaining the characteristics of the terroir. What you get is deep colored wine with full robust flavors of blackberry, raspberry, and cherry, paired perfectly with firm tannins and a soft, but full, mouthfeel.
Silver Lining Cabernet Sauvignon
Born under the sun of costal vineyards in California, cool weather and bright sun produce grapes of pure balance. The right amount of fruit and acidity allow vintners to craft balanced, well-to-drink red wines that are delightful and crowd pleasing. Silver Lining Cabernet Sauvignon is such a wine. The very present fruit of dark plum, cherry, cassis, and hints of cocoa sits well in the mid-palate and has a short but pleasing finish.
Fair Oaks Zinfandel
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.
Della Flora Nero d'Avola
Italy is home to almost 350 different wine grape varieties, giving wine lovers a plethora of styles to choose from. One of our favorites, Nero d’Avola from Sicily has found a home in our cellar. These wines are bold in nature. After all, Nero d’Avola also is known as the “Black Grape of Avola.” When crafted well like the Della Flora Nero d’Avola, they yield a bold wine with lots of dark blackberry fruits, plum, sweet and smoky nuances and hints of spice. This combination in perfect harmony is a blessing on our palates with its smooth and sultry finish. Enjoy this wine with hearty stews, gamy meats, and our favorite, bacon buffalo cheeseburgers.
As the country’s most esteemed wine region, Mendoza commands a certain level of high expectation for quality. The bar is set quite high, similar to wines from Napa here in the United States. Thankfully, the Encantadora easily clears the bar and helps set the standard for what Argentinian Malbecs should be. Malbec is Argentina’s signature grape because of the amazing flavors the combination of the Argentine terroir and the natural characteristics of the fruit express. This particularly enthralling Malbec features fresh fruit flavors of blackberries, cherries and ripe plums. The Malbec is lightly oaked which adds a toasty vanilla undertone to the wine. The tannins are nice and round and help contribute to a lingering finish. A simply enjoyable, easy drinking Malbec.
