Today’s red wine blends feature full, flavorful wines with tons of fruit in well balanced wines. Many red blends are wonderful values and this collection of three wines features reds from around the world.
The Prisoner (California, 2013)
Kuleto India Ink (Napa, CA 2014)
Rotto Red (Paso Robles , CA 2012)
Cabs are still King in Napa and this varietal represents the true power in red wines. This 3-pack gives a wine lover the chance to try some well-established and some slightly lesser-known producers who all produce top tier cabernets.
Honig Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa, CA 2012)
Sequoia Grove Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa, CA 2013)
Ehler’s Estate Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa, CA 2013)
I Can’t Drink Red Wines!
If you really can’t drink red wines (like my wife), first of all, “I’m very sorry.” But here are three really delicious Sauvignon Blancs, Chardonnays, and a Pinot Grigio. These whites are full of flavor and show off their fruit and not the wooden barrels in which they age.
- Honig Sauvignon Blanc (Napa, CA 2015)
- Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio (Alto Adige, IT 2013)
- Les Charmes Macon-Lugny (Burgundy, FR 2014)
Old World Wines
When you are studying to join the Court of Master Sommeliers, one of the first tasting characteristics you are taught to distinguish is Old World vs. New World. These Old World wines epitomize the idea of more subtle flavors with less of a fruit-forward style. Elegant and delicious reds and whites!
- Izadi Rioja Reserva (Rioja, SP 2011)
- Aia Vecchia “Lagone” (Tuscany, IT 2014)
- Chateau de Sales (Pomerol, FR 2012)
Pursuit of Pinot
Pinot lovers are finicky just like the grape from which these beautiful reds are made. Do they like more fruit forward pinots from California or the more earthy and lighter-bodied pinots from Burgundy and Oregon. Here are three to help you decide which style you love.
- Foley Pint Noir “Santa Rita Hills” (Santa Barbara, CA 2013)
- Omero Cellars (Willamette, OR 2014)
- Sonoma Coast Vineyards “Freestone Hills” (Sonoma, CA 2011)
There are a myriad of critics telling us which wines are the best, and they rarely agree. These three wines are always among the critics top choices. They’re a little bit more expensive but you clearly get what you pay for with these.
- Col Solaire Red Blend (Washington 2012)
- Olivier Leflaive Rully 1er Cru “Les Cloux” (Burgundy, FR 2013)
- Palzaao “Right Bank Red” (Napa, CA 2011)
