15 Bottles of Award Winning Red Wine For Summer
Wild Brush Cellars Monterey County Pinot Noir - $17.99
Above the Pacific Ocean lie the brushy peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range. Here, the coastal climate of the Monterey Bay provides warm days and cool nights, ideal for growing Pinot Noir. This wine offers vibrant raspberry and black cherry aromas layered with spices on the finish.
Caliz de Luz Monastrell Red Wine - $19.99
Our Caliz de Luz Monastrell was grown in Spain, the country of origin for this thick skinned grape. Drought-tolerant vines make it an ideal fit for the warm, dry climates of Spain. Full-bodied with rich meaty flavors, this wine should be enjoyed with umami such as pork shoulder or beef short-ribs. It also pairs nicely with hard cheeses.
Finca La Escondida Pinot Noir - $19.99
A sparkling blue sky always shines in our memories of the Estate. As we reminisce, we walk along gravel paths, we feel the fresh turf under our feet, we take in the purest aromas in a single breath. Memory is a bit like magic; what is past is now present, and what we love lives again. This Pinot Noir has spicy aromas with intense, sweet tannins and a pleasant finish.
Act IV The Ploy Rosso Veronese Red Wine - $15.99
Unlike the "Ancient Grudge" in Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, there is no feud between these 2 blended grapes. 60% Corvina and 40% Merlot make quite the pair. The beauty of this wine, is that 30% of the fruit is left to dry, giving a dynamic flavor with intense ruby red color, cherry blossom nose and a soft palate, full and well balanced to the finish. It's the perfect match for first courses with rich sauces, roasts, braised or grilled red meats.
Provenza Vineyards Aglianico - $18.99
This full-bodied red comes from a favorite winegrowing region: the "heel" of Italy's boot. The area yields wines with concentrated flavors of dried black fruits, pepper, leather, and dried figs. The earthiness makes Aglianico an excellent food wine to enjoy with smoked pork and barbecue. It can age for years.
