The 8 Styles of Wine Mixed Case
Your 8 Styles of Wine Mixed Case includes one bottle each of
Coastal Passage Pinot Noir
A very aromatically expressive wine, with lychee, cranberry, cola, raspberry, and red cherries abounding. Hints of cinnamon and clove, wildflowers and cacao, are present, too. This wine has a bright, food-friendly profile. The perfect companion to any foods with spice.
Della Flora Sangiovese I.G.T
Sangiovese is to Italy as Cabernet is to California. Like Cabernet in California, a couple hundred miles can yield totally different styles of wine. But even with stylistic differences, you can always count on the wine bringing you the flavors you desire. For Sangiovese, Puglia is the sister region next to Tuscany, and that is where we found this Della Flora Sangiovese. Lighter than its Tuscan counterpart, the flavors of red currant, raspberry, earthy clay, and aromatic influences of lavender are present. The wine will pair perfectly with tomatoes as the acids from the tomato and the wine dance in sync like the Tango, so make sure to get that pasta sauce simmering. We recommend decanting the wine for 30-45 minutes before enjoying. Salute!
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 Nero D' Avola
Nestled off the coast of Southern Italy, the terroir of the island of Sicily produces wines so unique, it is nearly impossible to duplicate their charismatic style. The prominent grape of Sicily, Nero d’Avola, also known as the “Black Grape of Avola” crafts wines that are bold in nature, with sweet fruit flavors, subtly sweet smoky notes, and nuances of spice that actually become sweeter with decanting. When sipping on Val di Botte Nero d’Avola, you’ll notice a strong presence of blackberry and plum, with hints of licorice and chile pepper. Try pairing this wine with unique dishes like oxtail stews and other gamy meats and anything with applewood-smoked bacon.
Vista De Noche Malbec
Drinks profoundly, with dark fruits such as blackberry with herbaceous notes, and that a nice smoky overlay, destined to be best friends with many grilled meats. It’s full bodied, has a personality, and has a finish that can please the wine drinker in all of us.
Les Chartrons Bordeaux Rouge
A charming and indulgent wine that is ideal as an aperitif or for a casual meal amongst friends. Flaunting a lively cherry red color with great intensity, the flavors are clean and fruity, with pronounced cherry, spice, and fresh herbs on the palate, a rounded mouthfeel, and supple tannins. Traditional style and character shine in this charming Bordeaux produced from 70% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Abbazia Cuvee Prestige Collio
Walking the vineyards of Collio in the Lombardy region in Northern Italy is an experience like no other. Strolling down the rows upon rows of vines giving life to Glera, a very special Italian varietal when proper crafted with care, produces a unique sparkling wine. For those looking for a little more out of Prosecco, look no further. Our Cuvee Prestige bottling from Abbazia is produced in the charmat method, ensuring a complex palate of flavors and tiny concentrated bubbles that give the wine its refreshing attributes. It is fruity and pleasant, with flavors of golden apples and spring flowers coming together in a harmonious balance, on top of a dry finish. Sparkling wine is no longer just for celebrations and is now considered an everyday delight. If you must celebrate an event or just the day, we can think of nothing better.
Spencer Family Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc
Crisp flavors of grapefruit and green apple with notes of ripe fig are the most distinguishing characteristics of this fruit-forward, award-winning selection. Produced from a vineyard established more than 100 years ago by descendants of European winemakers, its grapes provide marvelous complexity and balance.
Val Di Botte Pinot Grigio I.G.T.
Just south of Milan close to the Italian Alps and boarding Alto-Adige, probably the definitive source for the world’s best Pinot Grigio, is where Val di Botte sources the amazing grapes that produce this exquisite white wine. This low alcohol balanced acid driven Pinot Grigio flaunts citrus zest, apple, pears, and nectarine flavors mingling with slight almond and ginger notes. The quintessential summertime wine, it is light, refreshing, and perfect for the season. We recommend this wine served ice cold to maximize the crispness.
Treehaven Lane Chardonnay
Here’s a classic, fruit-forward Chardonnay that offers lush flavors of apple, citrus and melon, with a note of hazelnut. It has a naturally crisp acidity that adds structure and carries the fruit flavors through a clean, dry finish. As a result, it makes an ideal choice for serving with fresh seafood or poultry, especially dishes featuring an herbed cream or butter based sauce.
Washington state is known for making wines of a richer style that showcase the power of the fruit while still showing finesse and balance. Due to Washington State’s Cascade mountain range, the surrounding valleys get intense sun and cool pacific winds optimizing ripeness and sugar levels. The end result of mother nature’s pixie dust sprinkled over the Evergreen State shows brightly in Myth, our newest Riesling. Enticing aromas of nectarine, apricot, and honey fill your nose. Flavors of honey-crisp apple, honeycomb, and stone fruit caress the taste buds. Riesling is inherently versatile, letting you enjoy this wine at a cocktail party or with Thai and Indian inspired cuisine.
Racine Cotes du Provence Rosé
The legend behind Racine, Bruno Lafon, is a descendant of a well-known Burgundy winegrowing family. Producing and sourcing the very best wines has been something in which Lafon takes tremendous pride. The wines he influences have a certain savoir-faire and we see this in Racine Rose. Côtes du Provence is special in itself for Rosé and combining the two together has yielded perfect results. It offers flavors that are full and expressive, including lychee, peach, and mango, with an essence of rose and finish that has a perfect level of finesse.
