Here are the detailed wine notes:
Zenato Pinot Grigio | Delle Venezie IGT, Italy
Lemon-green in color, aromas of Key limes and white peaches complement undertones of green apples and grains of paradise. On the palate, it is smooth and refreshing with a long, pleasant finish. A great choice for any occasion, but it is ideal with hors d’oeuvres, vegetable soups, fresh garden salads, and grilled sole. Website
Cost: $12.99

Zenato Superiore Valpolicello | Veneto, Italy
This classic wine from the Valpolicella area is made from Corvina, Rondinella and Corvinone grapes. The shades of almond and violet are outstanding, with a structure that enables this wine to age for several years. 85% Corvina Veronese, 10% Rondinella, 5% Corvinone. Website
Cost: $16.99

Bogle Essentials Red | California
A compelling blend of California’s finest plantings of Old Vine Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon & Petite Sirah. 12 months in American oak. Website
Cost: $9.99

Markham Napa Merlot | Napa, California
Layering in vanilla and dark chocolate aromas, the vibrant cherry fruit flavors play against the chewy tannins and long, graceful finish. Consider pairing with a grilled duck sausage gussied up on a decadent brioche bun loaded up with a colored trio of sautéed peppers. Simple and fancy all at the same time, just like our beautiful hardworking Merlot! –From their Website
Cost: $21.99

Bogle Phantom | California
Phantom, Bogle’s mysterious apparition of ripe berry and relentless spice, returns to haunt wine lovers. Full of concentration and intensity, this wine will tease, tantalize and linger long after the last sip is gone.
Wild berries, black pepper are framed by the influence of oak aging with baking spices and a hint of toasty vanilla. 42% Petite Sirah, 34% Zinfandel, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot. 24 months in 1 & 2 year-old American oak.–From their Website
Cost: $17.99

Carne Humana Red Blend |
The Carne Humana Red Blend is co-fermented and barrel-aged as a single blend. It’s color profile is deep scarlet with a slightly purplish-black core. Aromatics resemble blackberry, dark chocolate, sweet black licorice, sweet cherry, hints of black pepper and cured meat. The Palate has a hint of sweet tobacco, maple, cherry pie filling, black licorice and an enlivened, bright acidity on the entry that is quickly followed by rich and sweet dark fruits, dried cranberry and sweet oak, all with a lingering finish. It’s structure is rich and bold, but balanced by acidity and integrated tannin. We like to call it the genuine red blend. Website
Cost: $29.99
