Scroll to the bottom to get a few specific recommendations we have in store so you don’t have to wait to get them!
Hess Allomi Cabernet: Graham cracker, cinnamon, and cedar intertwine with currant and boysenberry both in the nose and on the palate. Up-front fruit on the entry transitions easily to a mid of finesse and balance.
The Crusher Tempranillo: An array of boysenberries, raspberries and blueberry pie take center stage complemented by hints of vanilla and root beer on the finish. Awesome with our Chicken and Mozzarella Pasta.
Santedame Chianti Classico: Violet aromas featuring notes of black pepper and velvet tannins. Best with Naan Pepperoni Pizza.
Renwood Premier Zinfandel: Here you’ll find bold but refined tannins seamlessly integrated with sweet vanilla oak, hints of dill and dusty berries.
