In this special collection, you will receive ONE of each of the following wines:
Dream Catcher 2013 Malbec, Argentina
This big and bold Malbec is as ripe, rich and round as it could possibly be. Produced with great care, the 2013 offers classic blackberry and cassis aromas over black cherry and fresh pomegranate flavors with just a hint of smoke. A clean and elegantly structured wine that over delivers for the price and (dare we say) rivals Napa reds at half the price.
The Gathering 2014 Chardonnay, Australia
Pale straw with a youthful green hint, this wine displays a nose of lifted citrus, white peach, lime and a touch of oak. Refreshingly crisp citrus flavors are complemented by stone fruit and delicate nutmeg nuances.
Sea Change 2012 Moscato, Argentina
Grapes for this wine come from a vineyard located in Maipu, Mendoza, approximately 900 meters above sea level. With four distinct seasons and no extremes in temperatures, vines typically experience a relatively uneventful annual growth cycle. Soil in this region is alluvial. Grapes were hand-picked beginning the first week of March, then went through destemming and berry crush.
El Negotiante 2013 Malbec, Argentina
This Malbec is a deep red color with violet flashes. The nose possesses a great fruit intensity of cherries and blueberries with a hint of black pepper. On the palate is a sweet beginning and soft tannins leading to a long-lasting finish. Best paired with red meat, roasts, and pasta.
Geerlings & Wade 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, California
This soon-to-be favorite sipping wine is characterized by its lush aromas of creme de cassis, licorice, spice and cigar box along with hints of oak. A soft entry of ripe plum and raspberry flavors greet the palate while notes of tobacco and caramel linger for an overwhelmingly smooth finish.
Hamilton Estates 2013 Merlot, California
Medium garnet color, very radiant. Red cherry, red raspberry and red plum, with spice cocoa and violets. Lovely acids persist and keep this wine fresh and engaging.
San Valencia 2014 Pinot Noir, Chile
Hauntingly seductive and delicious, the San Valencia Pinot Noir 2014 Valle Central can be as lush as a strawberry, as intense as red currant. The wine is more full-bodied than it's medium ruby color suggests, making it an excellent pair for rich dishes - salmon, duck, or black truffle tagliatelle will envelop the fine-grained tannin and acid that promise several years in the bottle.
House of Mandela 2009 Royal Reserve Chardonnay, South Africa
This classic Chardonnay displays fresh lime, pear and peach flavors which will become more complex with time in the bottle. The House of Mandela wine brand commemorates the life and spirit of a great African soul, father and grandfather, Rolihlahla Nelson Mandela.
The Coorong Reserve 2011 Classic Dry White, Australia
Very pale straw colour with aromas of gooseberry along with grassy notes combined with hints of tropical fruits. On release, the wine displays exotic fruit and spice along with classic lemon peel and herbal notes. The palate is well-balanced, crisp and refreshing with a pure acid line and there is a mineral character to the finish.
Tejida 2013 Garnacha, Spain
A wonderful blend from Spain ‘woven’ together from Garnacha and Tempranillo to create a very well balanced, lush wine. With a bouquet of red cherry, this wine rolls across the palate bringing flavors of raspberry and cocoa, followed by subtle notes of peppercorn and red fruit.
Mira Luna 2012 "Tough Day" Chardonnay, California
Unobstructed by oak, Sonoma Carneros Chardonnay fruit provides wonderful aromas of peach, pear and melon, while a touch of Muscat provides accessibility.
Piccolino di Puglia 2013 Aglianico, Italy
This beautiful Italian grape, relatively unknown in the United States, is full of luscious flavors showcased brilliantly in this wine. Flavors of blueberry and dark fruit lead on the palate with complex flavors of licorice, peppery spice, espresso and caramel adding a whole lot of flavor. This wine packs a powerfully delicious punch.
