Wine Wednesday Reds Case
Your Wine Wednesday Reds Case includes two bottles each of
Longchase Vintners Cabernet Sauvignon
This bright Cabernet Sauvignon from California's Lodi region is one of our newest arrivals. We tried this wine and we were taken by surprise. Cabs have the historical trait of being layered and silky with the dark fruit that we all love. Sometimes, however, that heavier profile is something that we are not looking for in a wine and even though we love the fruit flavors, we need more pop and a slightly lighter body. When Leaping Horse Cabernet fell into our laps, we immediately knew this wine was filling a void our customers were longing for. Currants and Black Cherry intertwine with blueberry flavors with subtle nuisances of vanilla, mint, and eucalyptus, but with a lighter body and that is not only approachable, but very smooth and delicious.
Leaping Horse Merlot
Who says Merlot isn't enjoyable? We think quite the contrary. When this iconic grape is crafted correctly it produces very delicious results. Now this textbook Merlot comes with a twist as 5% Cabernet Sauvignon is blended in to round out the wine and provide very enjoyable soft tannins and a smooth finish. Luscious fruit of plum and black cherry, with a pinch of fresh herbs round out the flavor profile. Because of its soft tannins and luscious fruit, Merlot is a delicious wine that’s food-friendly or can be savored by itself. It works with many types of meat or fowl, such as roast turkey or chicken, grilled blackened salmon, pasta with meat sauces, pork, grilled vegetables or a steak salad.
Geja's Private Reserve Big Bold Red
As the name says, this is a wine big on flavor and bold, with ripe flavors floating over a fine structure of natural fruit acidity. If you haven’t already tried it, there’s no better time than now. The Geja’s Big Bold Red is a feisty, impudent red with prominent, aggressive tannins that are fresh and forward. This is one wine you can enjoy every day of the week at a price that’s hard to beat.
Villa Amoroso Toscana Rosso
There is something inherently special about the winemaking region of Tuscany. The wines possess a charismatic profile found in this central Italy region. What makes them so special? Some say it is the unique flavors that come from the vines. Others say it’s the balance and full-flavor but lean attributes of the wine that is crafted here. For us, we love that it is a food lover’s wine. The contrast of tart cherry, plum, and strawberry fuse together with oregano, smoke, tobacco alongside elements of clay from the soil. Separate, they are unique, but together they are one. That is why we are so ecstatic with our Villa Amoroso Toscana Rosso from the Tuscany region. Villa Amoroso hits every flavor note we expect, leaving us to want nothing else, except for maybe a few more bottles.
Cuvèe Joëlle Malbec Et Merlot
Among the many grapes that originate from France, two come to mind that have been known to craft stunning wines. Malbec has a dark, rustic nature and Merlot with its fruit forward, soft, and herbaceous character are two wines, that when put together, craft a unique wine flavor. Cuvèe Joëlle is a perfectly balanced blend of Malbec and Merlot fusing flavors of red plum, raspberry, blackberry, vanilla and fresh herbs. This wine is meant to be paired with fun and exciting dishes like bacon-wrapped blue cheese stuffed dates, pungent cheeses, and bacon blue cheese burgers.
Altos De Tamaron Joven
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 mouthfeel is silky and fruity. Enjoy this Spanish red with grilled flank steak and roasted tomatoes to bring out the near perfect acid structure.
