On the nose the wine is fruity, persistent, and elegant with a lovely perfume of baking spices, melon, peaches, and minerals.  Round, spicy, and pleasure-bent, this smooth textured, impeccably balanced effort over delivers in a very big way.  Ideally pairs with all kinds of shellfish, seafood, and salads.

Bodegas Volver “Juntos” Merlot Alicante, Spain (suggested retail $11.99) In English Juntos means “Together”.  Many things come together to create great wine.  Jorge Ordonez and Rafael Canizares came together and built the facility that makes this wine.  The harsh continental climate and the chalky sandy soils of Alicante come together to produce perfectly ripe bunches of Merlot.  Finally, the talent and dedication of the winemaker come together to produce a wine of exceptional quality and finesse.  Its classical structure emphasizes the deep red fruit and the long silken tannins on the finish.

Restivo “Silver Series” Malbec, Mendoza Argentina (suggested retail $14.99)      Located at 850 meters above sea level in the Barrancas region in the province of Maipu Mendoza.  This area’s particular micro climate and stony ground make for wines of exceptional quality with an intense concentration of aromas.  The elegant, vivacious red color helps complement intense and rich fruity flavors of Morello cherries and raspberries along with very soft hints of Chocolate.  Round and balanced on the palate, this Malbec presents a pleasant complexity with harmonious finish.  Pairs well with roasted meat, fowl, and salmon.

Douglas Green Cabernet Sauvignon, Western Cape South Africa (suggested retail $11.99)  Douglas Green takes all the time necessary for the riveting dark berry fruit depth of our Cabernet Sauvignon to perfectly intertwine with etchings of savory spice from oak maturation in our cellar. If you love reds with focused fruit depth and astute body, you will relish the smooth intensity of this wine for fireside sipping or at the dinner table with your favorite steak, roast or stew.
