If you love New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and a super value too, look no further than Stone Bay! Born in the same region as those “more famous” and more expensive labels. It is the textbook definition of Marlborough. Sublime flavors of gooseberry, citrus, dried herbs, and hints of passion fruit.
This wonderful wine shows alluring aromas of blackberry and espresso. In the mouth, the wine shows layers of creamy cassis, boysenberry, and oak mingling with the vanilla bean finish. Serve it with steak with Gorgonzola sauce or grilled pork tenderloin with rice pilaf.
From France’s Loire Valley, Rosé d’Anjous are a style of Rosé that has a juiciness to them that stops short of an all-out sweetness. The best versions balance juicy red berry fruit with fresh floral notes across a soft, inviting frame. Les Domaniales is a perfect example of these characteristics. This is a Rosé that makes for a delicious easy-going aperitif, as well as a great pair for shellfish and poultry (try it with barbecued chicken and you’ll thank us later!).
From the winery behind customer favorites: Navigator, this barrel reserve cabernet sauvignon is very balanced and refined with blackberry, blackcurrant, and floral character. Medium-to full-bodied, subtle and complex. Very approachable, this wine is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Great with marinated flank steak or a chunk of aged cheddar.
Sourcing the Pinot from various cool climates throughout California creates a blend that highlights bright fruit flavors and exotic spices. Pour a hearty glass to release scents of ripe cherries, take a sip and savor flavors of pomegranate and black cherry with a hint of spice. Pair it with everything from grilled clams to pepper chicken stir-fry.
Pale pink in color, with aromas of fresh raspberries, vanilla crème, kiwi, and passion fruit. Your palate is greeted by bright, crisp flavors of strawberry, white peach, and tangy cherry. The light kiss of Muscat, coupled with this wine’s balanced acidity and low alcohol, makes it the perfect match for light fare or for sipping all on its own.
Spain produces many fine sparkling wines called Cava, after the cellars in which the wine is produced. This wine has a history that dates back to 1872. Cava is usually made with a few grape varietals that you’ve probably never heard of – Macabeu, Parellada, and Xarello. Palacio de Palau is chock full of floral aromas that are backed up by lovely flavors of white fruits, lime, and a hint of pineapple on the finish.
A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. “Governo” dates back to the most ancient traditions of Tuscan farmers. Part of the grapes planted before harvest are added to the wine during fermentation, so as to give it more softness and to enhance its bouquet. Intense cherry and raspberry flavors lead to a finish that is fresh and savory. Pour a glass and enjoy with linguine and mushrooms in red sauce, grilled strip steak, or a wedge of aged pecorino.
From rolling hills to towering redwoods, the scenery along the North Coast region of California is almost as memorable as the wine made here. Almost! With one of the coolest climates in the state, Chardonnay seems to thrive here and Calculated is one of those wines. Flavors and aromas of bright citrus and apple, along with a subtle hint of tropical fruit on the finish. Serve it with foil pouch herb tilapia on the grill or a seasonal salad with salmon.
Pinot Grigio’s are all alike, right? Hmm, well, yes, often, that is true. But differences exist. A perfect example is Alta Via where the combination of the location of the vineyard in the Dolomite Mountains in the foothills of the Alps and the vines aging from 25 to 60 years produce a unique wine. Packed with flavors of Granny Smith apples and ripe pear with a honey-laced finish this is truly special wine. Pair it with a lobster roll, baked garlic and butter clams, or Baja-style rosemary chicken skewers.
Gorgeous in the glass, Blackhawk Merlot is a perfect everyday wine. With deep flavors of blueberry and plum, this wine is delicious for just about any occasion and food pairing – from pizza and pork to a nice roast chicken!
The most common response that is heard after tasting this wine is that it has more character and complexity than most of the Sauvignon Blancs that are from the famed Marlborough region in New Zealand. Ten Sisters has rich and deep flavors of tropical fruits with hints of spice on the satisfying finish. It simply is a spectacular take on a much-loved style of wine.
