Red Wines for Winter Weather
Winter weather is the perfect excuse to snuggle up with a glass of red and enjoy an evening indoors. Not only is red wine said to help fight off a cold, the flavors and aromas of a red add warmth to your wintertime dishes. Here’s our top 3 reds to drink right now…
Private Reserve Tempranillo: This is full-bodied red wine with soft aromas of vanilla, dried leaves and sandalwood from oak aging. Bold dark cherry and plum flavors along with vivid acidity provide a fleshy mouthfeel and long, smooth finish.
Private Reserve Petite Sirah: Another full-bodied red, this wine has strikingly deep violet hues. Equally bold aromas of dark tea leaves and smoke entice the nose. Flavors of wild black cherries and plum coat the mouth with hints of baking spices from oak aging. Rich tannins create structure bold enough to pair with strong flavors and herbs such as black pepper, clove and rosemary.
Paulo Blend: This classic wine is a blend with nostalgic aromas of dried roses and cedar followed by dark fruit flavors of sugar plum and black cherry. The tannin structure of this blend makes for an ideal wine to serve with red meats and pasta.
