Aromas of sweet Rainier cherry and earth mingle with spiced wildberry bramble bush flavors. Long finish with a distinct ripe strawberry note and silky-soft tannins.
AT HOME PAIRING: Also, pairs well with cheese and crackers. Take out the Boursin or whatever wedge of cheese you’ve got and some salty crackers and have a proper restaurant-level appetizer before dinner. You deserve it.
A crisp and fruity red grown on the Alpine slopes of Savoie. Soils consisting of glacial deposits of lime and other minerals keep the strawberry, raspberry and blackberry flavors lean, but still fruit forward. Round and lively, this easy drinking red from the foothills of the Alps shows great acidity and an outburst of fruit immediately in the glass.
AT HOME PAIRING: Enjoy whilst thinking up a clever name for your brand new sourdough starter. Jane Dough?
Cabernet that's ready to drink now (yes, please!) Seductive aromas of cherries, blueberries and rhubarb enrobed in warm scents of dark chocolate, juniper and tobacco. All of those scents translate to palate, bringing along with them smooth tannins that further up the sexiness of the wine inside. Whew.
AT HOME PAIRING: A wonderfully warming red to snuggle up to alongside a movie or streaming binge. Killing Eve, anyone?
Our first wine aged sous-voile, or under the delicate flor veil of yeast - like sherry or vermouth! This intentionally oxidized Chardonnay blend is polarizing to say the least, but any fans of Sherry will be doing backflips out of excitement. The nose is savory and sweet, like sweet soy sauce coated cashews in a field of citrus flowers. The palate is a cacophony of flavors and experiences: spice, freshness, fatness, acidity, nuttiness, perfume and a hint of creaminess. Watch out, it’s addictive to sip on and fantastic with a plethora of foods - including almost impossible to pair culprits such as artichokes and asparagus.
AT HOME PAIRING: The ultimate brunch at home wine. The nutty flavors enhance croissants and DIY scones while the crispness works to clean up rich bacon or jams on biscuits and toast.
Classic Muscadet with a bright, pale yellow color with scents of pear, peach and grapefruit. The palate opens with citrus and lively minerality and the mouthfeel is velvet smooth thanks to aging on lees.
AT HOME PAIRING: A classic oyster wine for future reference. But also works perfectly in a plastic cup for a walk around the block or paired with tuna salad sandwiches or the simplest Cacio e pepe you can make with what’s on hand.
A fun and unique wine made from grapes left to mature a touch longer on the vine, concentrating the fruit flavors to pie-filling like richness. However, the wine is then vinified dry - not sweet! - and aged in a combination of stainless steel and oak to maintain all of the mature fruit characteristics. Just enough velvety smooth tannins surround the core of ripe blackcurrant jam, raspberry pastry-filling and a just touch of floral-scented wood.
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. Or put something in the Instant Pot, set it, and forget it. The wine will still be delicious.
A Semillon heavy blend makes for a rich and tropical-fruit-filled bouquet of lychee and honeysuckle. The Sauvignon Blanc dominates the palate with tart, zesty lime and underripe kiwi, like you forgot to cut off all of the skin. The Semillon lends itself both to mouthfeel, with a nice weight and texture, and also to complementary floral undertones picked up in the glass.
AT HOME PAIRING: Great for virtual happy hours with a bag of chips and some guacamole, just remember to mute your mic while you’re crunching away! Extra points for Zoom backgrounds that make you forget you haven't changed locations.
A younger and brighter expression of Nebbiolo than you’ll find with Barolo. Still aged in large oak casks, though only for 24 months, the wine displays more of the tart raspberry and fresh snipped flower scents and drinks with flavors of bright red fruits, cherries soaked in alcohol and liquorice, and a touch of forest floor bramble.
AT HOME PAIRING: This is a pasta wine, so embrace it. Whether it be jarred Trader Joe’s sauce or your 12 hour take on Nona’s special ragu, Nebbiolo is a treat with a hefty bowl of pasta.
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: Whether whipping up some spicy curry at home or ordering in some buffalo wings to support your favorite local bar and grill, a half-sweet wine helps cool those addictive spicy flavors.
6 years is a comfortable amount of time to hold-off on opening your Médoc Bordeauxs. This 2012 still has a whisper of youth on the nose with tight black fruit dominating the aromas, but as of this year is starting to show its true colors. Dark plum, mushroom and vanilla notes from the oak and youthful tannins beginning to fully integrate.
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.
