This soft and succulent California Pinot Noir shows ripe fruit flavors and a delicate mouthfeel. A swirl reveals aromas of dried red currants with hints of ripe cranberry, spicy cloves and vanilla.

2011 Falesco Sangiovese, Umbria, Italy
Price: $12.49/bottle or $149.88/case

This wine is made from 100% Sangiovese grown in vineyards near the historic communes of Montecchio and Orvieto.  Bright ruby-red in color, this wine has effusive aromas of ripe black cherries, strawberries, and plums. On the palate, long-chain tannins and notes of spice persist across a long, pleasing finish.

2010 Enrique Mendoza La Tremenda Monastrell, Alicante, Spain

Sale: $11.24/bottle or $134.89/case
The name “La Tremenda” references the name of the vineyard from which the grapes for this wine are grown and handharvested.  Bright ruby-red in color, this wine shows expressive notes of fresh black cherries and red berries mingled with hints of sweet spice, toast and cocoa. On the palate, this accessible red shows silky texture, liveliness and long length.

2012 La Flor Malbec, Valle de Uco, Argentina

Sale: $12.59/bottle or $151.09/case
