Cristobal 1492 Chardonnay, Argentina (suggested retail $9.99) This wine from Mendoza has an attractive nose of exotic fruits is followed on the palate by more peachy fruit. The palate is fresh and clean with generosity, the finish long and fine. Only very slightly oaked. This wine would go well with a cream based casserole or with steamed shellfish.
Duck Pond Mingle Proprietary White Blend, Columbia Valley Washington (suggested retail $13.99) Mingle was created to showcase the unique qualities of white grape varietals grown in Eastern Washington. Mingle is full-bodied on the palate, thanks to a generous percentage of Chardonnay and barrel fermentation. The palate boasts intense peach and apricot flavors, coupled with floral aromas, balanced by a pleasant amount of acidity which allows it to stand up to poultry or grilled seafood.
Donna Vinho Tinto, Alentejo Portugal (suggested retail $9.99) The Alentejo wine region in Portugal is inland and down a bit from Lisbon, touching the Spanish border on the east and the Algarve is at its south end. Traditional Portuguese grape varieties dominate the region, but newcomers such as Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon are beginning to be blended with the local varieties, as is the case with this wine. Donna pairs nicely with rich soups and stews, dishes with olives and mushrooms, or tomato based sauces.
Macaron “Romeo’s Red” Rosso IGT delle Venezie, Italy (suggested retail $15.99) This wine exhibits deep aromas of crushed wild blackberries that mingle with ripe red fruit to create a sensual silky finish. The back label says this wine is sweet, but that is an error. While the wine shows plenty of fruit, it has a nice acidic balance and dryness that goes great with food. This wine would be a crowd pleasing wine to serve with pepper crusted prime rib with a creamy mushroom sauce.
Ramon Roqueta Tempranillo / Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva, Catalunya Spain (suggested retail $14.99) Catalunya is a region previously only known for its sparkling cavas, the region is gaining notoriety for its outstanding red wines. The wines from Ramon Roqueta are no exception. Wine Enthusiast gave this wine 88 points: “This is an exotic and unusual wine, with mint, dry spice and mild red-fruit aromas. Light in body, it has snappy, juicy acids pushing raspberry and red plum flavors. For Old World fans, this is the ticket; it’s lean and tangy, with leather and vanilla notes on the finish.” This wine has the backbone to stand up to a charcoal grilled steak, or dry rub pork barbeque.
Cristobal 1492 Oak Reserve Shiraz, Mendoza Argentina (suggested retail $16.99) Don Cristóbal 1492 has a total of 150 hectares of vineyards, which are exclusively dedicated to the production of internationally recognized, top quality wines. Great aromatic intensity is on display, with red and black fruit. The twelve months aging in new French oak barrels accentuate the richness of its ripe tannins. Aromas of dark fruit on the nose lay the foundation for its full-bodied palate. This terrific wine will drink well with a wide variety of hearty meat dishes, including grilled venison, black bean soup, blue cheese, pizza, and spicy salami.
