Valentine's Day Mixed Case
Your Valentine's Day Mixed Case includes
Fincalegre Cava Brut
Cava Brut is the flagship for Fincalegre’s successful effort to provide luxurious sparkling wines at approachable prices. Made from hand-picked Spanish Macabeo (40%), Xarel-lo (40%) and Chardonnay (20%) grapes, the result is a stunning sparkler that hews closer to champagne than prosecco. This bubbly’s fresh fruit flavors make for an aperitif that can be enjoyed throughout the meal, especially if you’re serving sushi, or spicier Mexican and Asian dishes. Fincalegre Cava Brut won the Gold medal for Best Cava in the 2016 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition, with a score of 90 points.
James and Bell Zinfandel
This unpretentious, understated and easy-drinking red wine captured our attention immediately. Its aromas focus on sweet berry and licorice, while gentle tannins let the delicate fruit flavors shine through.
El Portal Red Blend
Both Zinfandel and Merlot are popular grapes on their own, and this combination with Syrah proves that the sum can be greater than its parts. In this smooth and ripe-flavored red, blackberry and cherry aromas are joined by notes of black currant, plum, spice and violet. Touches of sweet tobacco and spice accentuate the fruit-forward flavor, making El Portal Red Blend very food friendly.
Ayrum is Turkish for “distinctive,” the perfect way to describe this dry and fruity Valdepeñas DO Spanish wine. Upon opening a bottle of Ayrum, you receive notes of strawberry preserves and vibrant cherry, leading to a rich fruit flavor without a weighted body. Ayrum Tempranillo drinks light and finishes with medium tannins, making it the perfect food lover's companion. We suggest opening your bottle an hour before your meal, giving the wine time to breathe and fully express itself.
Vista De Noche Malbec
Vista de Noche Malbec is a profound red, with dark fruits like blackberry mingling with herbaceous notes and a nice, smoky overlay. This full-bodied wine is destined to be best friends with many grilled meats. It’s got a lot of personality, and a finish that can please the wine drinker in all of us.
Spencer Family Reserve Cask Red
Fill your glass with this deliciously smooth, robust red. Sweet black fruit aromas added to layers of ripe black cherry and plum flavors reflect a heavenly marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Syrah. Forward fruit flavors and a velvety texture make Spencer Family Cask Reserve the go-to red wine for everyday enjoyment.
Val Di Botte Toscana Rosso I.G.T.
This central Italian red boasts up-front flavors of raspberry and strawberry with hints of roasted pepper and fresh herbs. The finish is light to medium with a smooth tannin structure. Pour Val di Botte Toscana Rosso with your favorite tomato-based Italian dishes, especially if you open it early and let it breathe before drinking.
Crisp, refreshing chardonnay is the first thing that comes to mind when most people think of white wine. Snickerdoodle makes a fresh Chardonnay, with flavors of green apple, nectarine and juicy melon. A subtle hint of oak adds complexity without cutting into the wine’s crispness, resulting in a delicious gem of a California Chardonnay.
MYTH Moscato is produced in the semi-sweet and fruity new world style. Taste it for peach and tangerine flavors, with sweet floral aromas. Moscato grapes are amazingly versatile, and MYTH’s version will be wonderful with your choice of flavorful cuisine.
The Camartina Estate Bottled Chardonnay is a smooth white wine with moderate acidity and a clean minerality. Its aromas and flavors of tropical fruit and lean pear make it perfect for white meats and full-bodied fish, creamy seafood recipes and your favorite corn-based dishes. Camartina Chardonnay comes from Chile’s esteemed and innovative Colchagua Valley, which was awarded Wine Region of the Year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine in 2005.
Spur Ranch Sauvignon Blanc
With a crisp acidity and notes of citrus and mineral, this lively Sauvignon Blanc pays homage to the pioneering spirit of California’s wine frontiers. From bountiful valleys to windswept mountain slopes, Spur Ranch’s winemakers work with growers to create wines of unbridled flavor and richness that harness the region’s unique character.
Vina San Juan White Blend
La Mancha is the land of Hillside casas, Don Quixote, and truly special white wine like Viña San Juan’s blend of Chardonnay, Verdejo, and Viura. This elegant Spanish white has wonderful, fresh aromas of herbs, apple, peach, and tropical fruit, which reflect on the palate and lead to a lovely, silky finish. This makes for a perfect pairing with tapas and a range of Spanish seafood dishes including fish with butter sauce, pasta and cheese.
