The search for 12 wines from around the world resulted in some new finds for us. We hope you enjoy drinking them, whether you share or drink them alone (we don't judge). A great gift idea as well.
La Playa Red Blend (Chile)
A terrific blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere. This blend has spicy aromas and flavors of ripe berries and herbs. Satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity, the long finish has notes of huckleberries and minerals with fine tannins and light oak flavor. This is a deliciously balanced, savory red pair with Braised Argentine Steaks or Shish-Kabob.
Adega de Moncao Vinho Verde (Portugal)
This Portuguese blend of Albariño and Trajadura is a zesty, textured wine with acidity and peppered lemon and spice flavors. Light but full of character that exuding vitality and freshness.
Leaping Horse Cabernet Sauvignon (California)
A luscious Cabernet with deep red-purple hues and flavors of black currant and cherry with hints of blueberry jam, eucalyptus and mint with lovely vanilla and coffee notes. It is smooth, rich and deliciously enjoyable. Ideal for hearty stews, beef soups, grilled or barbecued red meats, pasta dishes with tomato-based sauces, strong cheeses or grilled chicken. It is also fabulous with a rich chocolate dessert.
Ananto Bobal Tempranillo (Spain)
The wine has a youthful clean, dark garnet-cherry color. Complex aromas of red berry fruit, strawberry and blackberry lead to an impressive array of flavors on the palate, great intensity and very good balance. Ripe, soft tannins bring a harmonious finish. Ideal with spicy beef sausages from Bob's in Columbia City and mash.
Leth Gruner Veltliner (Austria)
Ripe, zesty lemon peel and white pepper aromas. Real concentration at the core and tons of spice and freshness on a very focused, driven palate. This is utterly refreshing and packs a real punch. Enjoy with a lovely zucchini gratin, or a pork schnitzel. Gruner loves young pecorino and fresh goat cheeses.
Palladio Rosso (Italy)
50% Sangiovese and 50% Merlot, this wine is named for Italy’s iconic architect, Andrea Palladio and is a tribute to the rich beauty and balanced structure typified by the wines of Italy. Like a Palladian masterpiece, this wine represents what the Romans and Greeks intended wine to be: easy to drink and a beautiful companion to food. A perfect pairing with pasta dishes from pesto to red sauces.
Hyatt Roadside Red (Washington)
Fabulous new value red blend from Hyatt, a respected estate bottled producer from the Rattlesnake Hills area of the Yakima AVA. Cab, Merlot and a splash of Syrah that coats the palate with ripe and tangy wild berries and black cherries. Finishes with a nice touch of earth and vanilla on a smooth and zesty palate. Perfect for bacon burgers and your favorite football game fare.
La Fiera Pinot Grigio (Italy)
Fresh and crisp. Showing both floral and fruity; lemon, peach and apple notes with a subtle mineral finish. Great as an aperitif or with seafood, think halibut or scallops. Bon appetite.
Lumieres Ma Vie Rouge (France)
That name "My Life", as in, "stuff happens". Loads of cherry, blackcurrant, some spices and garrigue notes. This wine is fruit driven, dominated by cherry, while the tannins are gentle and well-integrated leading to a pleasant roundness and elegance on the finish. Perfect paired with a hearty lamb stew and couscous. Yum.
Duc de Valmer Brut (France)
A very festive Blanc de Blanc Brut made in the Merignac region of France. Fruity, subtle, round, and gentle, it’s the perfect aperitif on its own, or as an ideal partner in cocktails. Brunch mimosa’s have never been better. Or try a Kir Royale – ½ ounce Cassis liqueur, top with bubbles, garnish with a lemon twist. As a starter this is perfect with a cheese & charcuterie plate or have with buttery popcorn on movie night.
Adaras Aldea Tinto (Spain)
An organic, vegan-friendly Garnacha (80%) and Syrah (20%).Cherry red in appearance with hints of violet, the bouquet shows fresh minerality and bright red fruits, whilst the palate is expressive and clean with well structured tannins and fresh acidity. Limestone minerality really comes through on the finish. Pair with a creamy, wild foraged mushroom pasta dish or wild boar ragu. Pair with roasted winter squash and savory herbs like rosemary and sage.
Canyon Oaks Chardonnay (California)
Fresh and clean style Cali chard with tropical fruit aromas and classic flavors of honey crisp apple, Bosc pear and has a nice smooth finish. A touch of vanilla rounds out a real winner of a Chard that pairs nicely with baked white fish or fettuccine Alfredo.
