7 Castillos Crianza NV
At first sight, it has a medium-high robe with purple rims. On the nose, we can notice well-structured wood notes, which are provided by the young barrels. Also red fruits, spices and mineral aromas. On the palate, it is unctuous, glyceric and velvety. It is a tasty wine with a well-combined mature tannin. Very balanced wine with a very clean finish, where we notice roast, spicy and tobacco nuances. It has a long aftertaste. Food Pairings: Meat, game and cured cheeses. Optimum Serving Temperature: 16-18ºC.

Cafe du Midi Red Blend
Bartoni PrimitivoPrimitivo variety grows in Puglia (the heel of Italy) which is today known in the United States as Zinfandel. The grape typically produces robust red wines. A nose of licorice and red berries. It is full-bodied, warm and fruity, with rich tannins.
Bartoni Chianti ClassicoItalian food without Chianti is almost like having pasta without sauce. It’s just meant to go together. The Sangiovese grape is the most widely planted grape in Italy and is also the star of this wine (and all those labelled Chianti and Chianti Classico). With this wine’s bright red fruity and acidity, there’s a chance this might just become your favorite too. - Blake Leonard, Certified Sommelier
Alain Corcia JulienasThis wine is the song that comes on and no matter what, you can’t help but to start dancing to. If you want to know, that song for me is Can’t Stop This Feeling By Justin Timberlake. This cru Beaujolais, made from the Gamay grapes, is irresistible and made by my friend, Alain Corcia. - Blake Leonard, Certified Sommelier Juliénas wines are earthy and weighty with a deep ruby red color with aromas of strawberry, violet, cinnamon, red currant and peony. The appellation sits in the far northwest of Beaujolais and due to the diverse terrain, Julienas wines are quite complex. Cru Beaujolais are some of the best valued wines in the world. This wine is well-made, balanced, food-friendly and just DELICIOUS!
