Ripe and warm gamay perfect for cool weather with loads of acidity and a soft texture. Plummy and pleasant with prominent cherry and raspberry scents and just enough earth to remind you that it’s French. Try with a slight chill for a refreshing red.
AT HOME PAIRING: The perfect way to get started. Crack this little bottle open ASAP, open a window or at least the blinds and smile knowing there are still 11 more glasses to come.
Château Donjon’s flagship bottling has powerful primary aromas of ripe black fruits like plum and berry with strawberry and raspberry taking over next. Very dense on the palate with concentrated dark cherry flavors and structured, developing tannins.
AT HOME PAIRING: This intense red wine, like you, deserves some breathing room to open up. Pour into a glass and drink alongside your most serious recipe endeavor yet.
Brick red with tons of density and a big, creamed berry bouquet with peony and baby's breath scents mingling in there. Toasted coconut, a little leather grip and vanilla starts the long, intense finish of the wine. It's dry, but still so delightfully fruity and that toasted coconut note follows through and adds complexity and nuance. Oh, and it's organic!
AT HOME PAIRING: This Spanish red is traditionally a perfect pairing for tomato broths and local cheeses - AKA grilled cheese and tomato soup.
Côt is the local name for Malbec here in the Loire Valley and into other parts of Southwest France, where the wines can tend to be on the lighter side. Expect flavors of black cherries, blueberries, hints of licorice, menthol, violets and a little white pepper. All wrapped up in a chillable, easy to drink red.
AT HOME PAIRING: Backyard BBQs are always enhanced by Malbec, but while sheltering in place, try this one alongside a ham and cheese sandwich or an NYT pasta salad recipe that includes feta.
A fresh and fruity wine made from Airén. By halting fermentation of the wine earlier than normal they were able to achieve a semi-sweet wine with good acidity, akin to the still moscato wines of Italy. Aromas of pear and banana greet you in the glass before a white-plum note and crisp Asian pear flavors round out the palate.
AT HOME PAIRING: Pair this semi-sweet treat with all of the stress-baking you’ve been doing: shortbread cookies, cheesecake or whatever mix you found in the cabinet. Also a real delight with salty potato chips and not reading headlines.
A traditional wine with a touch of modernity! Black forest fruit like blackberries, blueberries, and chocolate covered cherries with oak providing an elegant aroma of toffee and sweet violets. Fleshy on the palate with good acidity and loads more of those rich forest berries. A fun wine for both new wine drinkers and traditionalists!
AT HOME PAIRING: A crowd pleasing red with a myriad of tasting notes. Try them out on your friends during your next virtual happy hour and you'll be sure to impress. Palate development while social distancing is one of our favorite activities.
Light green in color with a richness to the nose. Notes of grapefruit, caramelized passion fruit, a touch of vanilla and some Pear Williams' as well. The fruits translate to the palate with a freshness that's balanced by minerality and fruitiness.
AT HOME PAIRING: Pop this fruity white into a paper cup and take a walk around your neighborhood (or the next room) to get some fresh air or a change of scenery. Also, paired with buttery popcorn is a real treat.
Translucent green in color with notes of kiwi, kumquats and ripe sweet Greengage plum. Tart, bracing acidity adds a sour-then-sweet guava candy flavor before soursop and lemon round out the unctuous finish.
AT HOME PAIRING: Use that peanut butter in the pantry for a Thai Peanut sauce and toss some zoodles in there. Or just make a PB&J sandwich and eat it in your PJs with a glass of wine!
Barolo is the most well-known and expensive wine from Italy and this glass is even rarer as it's from a single vineyard! Released 4 full years after harvest, 3 of those spent in oak, Barolo is a powerhouse of rich rose and anise aromas and mouth-drying tannins. The paradox is that all of this is contained within a seemingly light wine; coffee, vanilla, red cherry, potpourri, allspice, truffles, tar, liquorice and primordial Earth are all here. Oh, and tons and tons of enjoyable fruit on top of those gripping, addictive tannins. The King Of Italy!
AT HOME PAIRING: This special wine pairs best with deep, calm thoughts and compassion for our neighbors. Enjoy it in health and happiness and cheers yourself to a brighter day.
