Wines Around the World Reds 12-Pack
2016 Cuvee Joelle Malbec et Merlot (x2)
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 (x2)
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.
NV Val di Botte Sangiovese I.G.T (x2)
With unlimited coastal access, warm Southern Italian sun, and 24-hour cool breezes, the Puglia wine region produces balanced, fruity grapes which match the local, tomato-rich food. If you want an earthy red to go with your favorite pizza or pasta, Val di Botte Sangiovese Puglia is what you’re looking for, especially if you decant it for half an hour to let the flavors of red currant and raspberry really open up.

2016 Trebuchet Red Blend (x2)
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.
Nectar Grenache Noir (x1)
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.
2015 Pretium Malbec (x2)
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.
