You can either choose to go with the Winc recommendations, or make your own selections from the ever-changing assortment of delicious and delectable wines.
I received a FABULOUS selection of wines, and I did choose to go with the Winc recommendations since I’m far from a wine expert. 2 red and 2 whites sounded absolutely perfect to me!
Alma Libre is a 2014 red blend that displays noticeable influences from the distinctly different climates of these Chilean regions. This wine beautifully blends the green, herbaceous Cabernet Francs characteristic of Colguaga with the lean, bright Carmenres and softly fruity Merlots that come from Casablanca Valley’s cooler temperatures. The grapes are hand-picked and aged in oak for four months for a smooth, easy drinking beverage. You’ll love this Chilean firecracker if you like hotter dishes like I do, but stay away from spicier foods when you’ve got a glass of Alma Libre in hand. It pairs great with lamb or tapas!
One From The Quiver is a delicious red wine that you can’t get enough of. This tasty bottle of wine is Brian Smith’s (winemaker and Winc Chief Wine Officer) love letter to Argentina. One From The Quiver is focused on balance, sourcing the best fruit available and picking it at the optimal time. The end result is a beautiful Malbec that brilliantly showcases Argentina’s most popular varietal as well as it’s most prolific winemaking region, Mendoza. You’ve got authentic Argentina in a bottle with One From The Quiver. Sweet spice and sunbaked earth on the nost with cherry on the palate make a perfect pairing for all of your meat dishes. Enjoy this tasty Malbec with burgers, BBQ, pork or ribs.
This Wonderful Wine White Blend is a thing to be treasured! This white blend is a must for just about any occasion! The juicy flavors of lychee candy, banana, and white peach definitely don’t disappoint. This carefully crafted blend has a medium body and pretty finish that pairs well with salad or shrimp…or heck, just enjoy it without a meal and have a fun get-together with all of your besties.
Last, but certainly not least, I also received this bottle of Passarola Vinho Branco. Portugal is one of Europe’s oldest nations and the world’s largest exporter of corks. It’s also home to over 250 indigenous varietals. Somehow, their wines have flown under the radar until pretty recently. This Passarola Vinho Branco is bottled proof that Portuguese wines deliver unmatched bang for the buck. Passarola combines two native grapes that are just bursting with flavorful notes of white peach, grapefruit, and lemon. This Passarola is absolutely a superstar when paired with a great seafood dish.
