Wines Around the World Mixed 12-Pack
2016 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.
2015 Granite Ridge Reserve Pinotage
With nearly a century as South Africa’s signature grape, Pinotage is a hybrid made from Pinot Noir and Cinsault (also known as Hermitage). Pinotage wines are celebrated for their unique, light red profile, and South Africa’s Winery of Good Hope shares this wonderful example of the varietal. Uncork this bright and juicy red and enjoy the way that Pinot Noir-esque notes of cherry intertwine with Cinsault’s pronounced spices. It’s especially good if served slightly chilled.

2016 Bianchi Malbec
This silky Argentinian red is made from handpicked grapes, grown at the foot of the Andes in San Rafael, Mendoza. 2016 Bianchi Malbec is an oak-aged wine with plum and black cherry aromatics, and a note of smoke that persists on the mouth, ending in a round and harmonious finish.
NV La Galleria Sangiovese di Puglia
Fruity Sangiovese enjoys a one-grape show in this earthy, single varietal red from Italy’s Puglia region. Puglia is located on the heel of Italy’s boot, and is known for the rich olive oil and tomato-based dishes that pair perfectly with this tasty, non-vintage wine. We suggest decanting a bottle for half an hour, allowing the red fruit flavors to really open up, and giving you time to enjoy a glass while your pasta sauce finishes simmering.
2016 Trebuchet Red Blend
This dark, garnet-colored red hails from South Africa, and is named to commemorate a working Shropshire-built trebuchet on its estate. Inspired by the fine blends of Bordeaux, this wine offers a wonderful balance of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec grapes. 2016 Trebuchet Red Blend is rich and lightly earthy, with flavors of ripe blackberries and plums, and firm tannins. Enjoy it with hearty red meat dishes, especially if they come with a side of frites.
2015 Pretium Malbec
Made from 100% Malbec grapes, this elegant red seduces with summery notes of red and black fruits like raspberry, black currant, and blackberry. From southwest France’s Cahors region, smooth and fruity Pretium Malbec is delightful as an aperitif, and ready to be enjoyed with flavorful meat dishes like beef tajine, chicken curry, and spiced leg of lamb.

2016 Simue Verdejo
A young white made of 100% Verdejo grapes from Rueda, Spain, harvested at night and cold macerated to accentuate the wine’s aromas of fennel, hay, and tropical fruit. On the palate, this wine has a buttery feel, refreshing acidity, and a fruity finish. Enjoy it with paella, fish, and cheese.
