Your Thanksgiving Stock Up Sale Reds Case includes two bottles each of
Porta De Ravessa Red Blend
The Porta Da Ravessa Tinto (red) is a blend of Trincadeira, Aragones, Alicante-Bouschet, and Casteleo that delivers an earthy, spicy, and rich yet well-rounded wine with a velvety texture. Trincadeira, also called Tinta Amarela, provides deep color, dark berry flavors, and firm tannins. Aragones, which most know well as Tempranillo, enhances the berry/cherry flavors and the soft texture. Castelao, known by some as Periquita, brings a youthful fresh fruitiness. And Alicante-Bouschet offers its trademark deep purple color and some additional softness. Perfect with braised lamb (or goat) shanks, or broiled garlic steak.
A bright ruby red, this wine has charming aromas of ripe red fruit and spices like black pepper with maybe even a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied with elegant tannins, there is no mistaking that this is a juicy red. Chocolate and red berries define the palate with a subtle of coffee in the finish. Brilliant.
Black Fox Merlot
One of our favorite North Coast wineries created this fine wine with grapes from vineyards just west of Santa Rosa in Sonoma County. Black cherry and red currant aromas with hints of dried herbs and cocoa powder lead to classic Merlot fruit flavors, herbal tones and suppleness, making it a perfect match for grilled steaks or other simply prepared red meats.
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.
Val Di Botte Toscana Rosso I.G.T.
Up front flavors of raspberry and strawberry with hints of roasted pepper and fresh herbs like thyme. The finish is light to medium with a smooth tannin structure. We recommend you open and let it breathe before consuming. Enjoy with margherita pizza with fennel sausage or a pasta dish like Spaghetti Bolognese.
Spain is the definitive source for top notch Tempranillo in the world. Despite being grow in other regions internationally, it is here in Spain, where the unique characteristics of this wine shine bright. This thick skinned black grape, which makes up 100% of Buscado Tempranillo, has flavors of dark fruit, plum, vanilla and fresh herbs in this easy to drink selection. We recommend opening this wine and coming back an hour later as aeration greatly improves the aromatics.
