Chateau de Paraza Minervois Cuvée Spéciale (Languedoc, France)

40% Syrah – 40% Grenache noir – 20% Mourvèdre
Deep red garnet and bright. Cherry and raspberry compote notes are backed by red licorice undertones and juicy acidity in this medium-bodied red. Floral and mineral details weave together on the crisp finish. Pair with soft cheese, Marengo veal, beef stew with sweet potatoes.

Vigna Rocca Albana Secco (Romagna, Italy)
Bouquet Elegant fragrances of melon and apricot, of honey and wildflowers
Palate Mouthfilling, conveying ripe peach and plum; pleasant bitter almond on the finish
Pair with: Fried seafood and fish soup, risottos, roast poultry and veal

Ji Ji Ji Malbec Co2 Pinot Noir (Mendoza, Argentina)
50-50 Malbec and Pinot Noir. It’s all crunchy, tangy red berry fruit, a wine that is incredibly light on its feet and refreshing. Think good grower cru Beaujolais or even Anjou Gamay. With traces of Malbec’s violet floral quality combining with minerality and bracing, electrifying acidity, this is fascinating wine, sure to bring lots of new wine drinkers into the world of exciting new projects happening right now in Argentina.
