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.
2013 Granite Ridge Reserve Pinot Noir
Delicate, small Pinot Noir grapes are notoriously difficult to grow. When properly ripened, they result in one of the most coveted red wines in the world. Staying true to the varietal’s light, bright red color, Granite Ridge Pinot Noir has beautiful cherry and cranberry flavors, hints of fresh herbs, and an elegant, low-acid mouth feel. Granite Ridge Pinot Noir is a crowd-pleaser, pairing with a wide variety of foods, from meatier fishes, to gamier poultry, to herb-covered white pizza.
2015 Nectar Grenache Noir
The name Nectar isn’t a reference to the wine's style but to nektar, the drink of the Gods. True to the heavenly style of French Grenache, this herbaceous red is rich with flavors of dried strawberries, plus a balance of tobacco and white pepper.
