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.
Orizzonti Montepulciano (Italy)
Deep; intense red color with violet highlights. Pleasant and fruity bouquet. Dry and round on the palate with a full-bodied finish showing off soft tannins and good acidity. Ideal with pasta courses or red meat.
Old Scratch Chardonnay (Washington)
Sips Sultry Out of the glass with notes of creme brûlée, lemon curd and pineapple. Aged in neutral French oak & barrel. Fermented with wild native yeasts. The Natural and unfiltered process used to make this beautiful Chardonnay may produce some Wine Diamonds which are both lovely and harmless.
Casa Santos Lima Red (Portugal)
Very aromatic with notes of ripe black and red fruits. In the palate, juicy plums and dark berry fruit flavor with plenty of fresh yet fine tannins that take over at the finish, along with flavors of spice and licorice. Think Rhône-like. Great with ribs grilled over an open fireplace/hearth. OK, oven-roasted will work too. A great pizza wine as well.
Montpellier Viognier (California)
Lovely tropical fruit aromas with flavors of guava and citrus fruits. Medium body that is dry-yet-fruity. Finishing with notes of melon and apple. Serve chilled with your favor rich fish or cut through heat of a spicy dish!
Valckenberg Pinot Noir (Germany)
A cool-climate style of Pinot Noir from Germany (where it’s also known as Spatburgunder), the Valckenberg exhibits crisp raspberry, cranberry and red cherry flavors with enticing hints of cinnamon and allspice mingled together through the delicate and pristine texture. It’s light on its feet but complex in its flavors, making it a natural companion to poultry and lighter fare.
Rivarey Tempranillo Rioja (Spain)
A beautiful red ruby color, bright aromas of red fruit (strawberry, raspberry) but a touch of the earthiness to give it somebody and backbone. Spices on the mid-palate with a silky mouthfeel and some legs on the finish.
LaLuca Prosecco (Italy)
Lively and luxurious, the LaLuca Prosecco is defined and distinctive, offering up prominent flavors and aromas of orchard fruits, crisp pears, and lemon curd, all of which come together in a rich, creamy off-dry style beautifully complemented by a deft touch of minerality. The bright, balanced finish shows excellent length and a sophisticated sparkle. Cheers!
Reserve de Marande Malbec (France)
This guy is a deep, dark red that's medium-bodied, wonderfully harmonic with a round and juicy mouthfeel. When opening the bottle, you will be mesmerized by scents of dark fruit, amplified with hints of coffee, cocoa and subtle rosemary. Enjoy it with braised lamb shanks or a rabbit ragu on a bowl of freshly made pappardelle.
Castle Rock Merlot (Washington)
Another terrific value. This 2018 is a Wine Enthusiast “Best Buy” with its pleasing quality of plum and raspberry fruit flavors mingling with delicious spice notes. It delivers above the price, and is fantastic with stuffed mushrooms and burgers, or on its own.
Salvare Sauvignon Blanc (Australia)
From South East Australia, this off the beaten path Sauvignon Blanc surprises. Easy drinking. Crisp and clean with hints of pineapple, grapefruit, and lime. A great pairing with goat cheese among other things. Cheers.
Chateau La Croix Dumenyieux Blaye (France)
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc. Ruby red color. Dark red fruit with hints of violets on nose. Approachable, smooth yet firm tannins. Great for a chilly winter evening.
Piccola Italia Bianco (Italy)
Italian dry white wine, which is produced from Pinot Grigio. Crop harvested in early September to achieve maximum maturity of berries. Soft, balanced, full-bodied flavor with fruity nuances. Wine matches perfectly with fish and mushroom dishes, lasagna.
