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.
Altos De Tamaron Tempranillo
Ribera del Duero is in a never-ending competition to be Spain's greatest wine making region producing wines of impeccable quality. This flat and rocky region provides the perfect amount of sunlight for this ripe and fruit driven red. Altos De Tamaron is a wine with deep cherry red and purple tones. Immerse your senses with aromas and flavors of ripe blackberry, licorice and spices. The finish is long and the mouth feel is silky and fruity. Enjoy this Spanish red with grilled flank steak and roasted tomatoes to bring out the near perfect acid structure.
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.
Marcel Malbec I.G.P. Comté Tolosan
Nestled in the French Countryside about an hour and a half east of Bordeaux is the picturesque region of Cahors. This area located in the middle of the Pyrénées in South West France is home to brothers Pascal and Jean-Marc Verhaeghe. The main property, Château du Cèdre is where the Verhaeghe family produces Marcel Malbec, a robust and rich Malbec from this talented winemaking family whose motto is to “move forward, experience new ways.” Farmed with no herbicides and chemicals since 1990, these grapes yields a savory but slightly tart flavor profile of plums, blackberry, and smoked meats. Possessing a solid structure and firm tannins, Marcel Malbec is structured and concentrated, yielding a deeper more complex wine.
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.
