Wednesday #winesday Reds Case
Your Wednesday #winesday Reds Case includes two bottles each of
Black Fox Cabernet Sauvignon
Complex Cabernet Sauvignon is the most popular red wine. Black Fox’s take on this iconic red boasts flavors of raspberry and cherry, with hints of cassis and cedar, and it won the Silver Medal in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition 2016. Each sip dances on your tongue with vibrant tannins, light mouth feel, and a finish that doesn’t linger too long. Its full-bodied flavor pairs wonderfully with umami, savory, high-fat foods. In other words, keep Black Fox Cab on hand to class up a mushroom cheeseburger or grilled steak.
Monarch Glen Merlot
Monarch Glen Merlot is a tasty red wine that flaunts aromas of tangy cherry and sweet berries, leading into a clean, dry finish. Looking for a food to pair with this wonderful wine? Try herb-roasted chicken, or grilled rack of lamb with fresh mint.

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.

Open this Italian Red from Cantus early, giving it time to breathe before drinking. When you taste the flavors of raspberry and strawberry, you’ll know it was worth the wait. This smooth, central Italian red follows the up-front fruit with hints of roasted peppers and fresh herbs that start a fascinating conversation with your favorite tomato-based Italian dishes.
Cuvee Joelle Malbec et Merlot
Among the many noteworthy French grapes, two have become especially treasured for their stunning wines. Malbec has a dark, rustic nature, while Merlot features a soft, fruit forward, and herbaceous character. When blended, they craft a unique flavor. Cuvèe Joëlle fuses red plum, raspberry, blackberry, vanilla, and fresh herbs. This exciting red blend is meant to be paired with fun dishes like bacon-wrapped blue cheese stuffed dates, pungent cheeses, and bacon blue cheese burgers.
