Alicante - A big, full-bodied wine from the south-east of Spain with the Dénomination d’Origine (DO), this varietal is largely cultivated in the Midi of France, North Africa and also California.
On a stand alone basis, the organoleptic qualities of the Californian grape are not spectacular, but often used to increase the color intensity and body in other blends.
On Site Price: $94.99

Barbera - Native of Northern Italy, it is cultivated today in the San Joaquin Valley in California. It is recognized for its intense and deep color and a good structure of tannin and acid. It presents nuances of gooseberries and a smoky, pepper bouquet. Often added to a blend that needs to be livened up. It is also known as the Bonarda (in South America).
On Site Price: $94.99

Cabernet Franc - Sometimes referred to as the Cabernet Sauvignon's "cousin", but is generally less tannic, acidic and lighter-bodied and colored. It is, however, known to be more aromatic and herbaceous. Often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot in smaller quantities, the Cabernet Franc helps heighten the organoleptic qualities of the blend. It is only recently that the Cabernet Franc has come into its own as a pure varietal wine.
On Site Price: $99.99

Cabernet Sauvignon - Without a doubt , one of the most popular varietals among the reds and enjoys worldwide fame. Its structure, complexity, distinct taste and cellaring potential are factors that have contributed to build a solid reputation. The organoleptic profile often includes comments of cherries, blackcurrants, raspberries, black cherries, with hints of pepper and even tobacco. The Cabernet Sauvignon's capacity to age well is partly due to the acidity and tannin levels. Sometimes blended with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and other varietals.
On Site Price: $94.99

Carignane - Also originating from Spain, it is also cultivated in Italy, Algeria, California and the Languedoc-Rousillon region of France. With high tannins and alcohol and a deep purple colour, a spicy and fruity is produced. It is often used in conjuction with softer grapes and to increase the colour intensity of a blend.
On Site Price: $94.99

Gamay - This is a grape variety that the French use to make their famous Beaujolais wine, a fruity, fresh-tasting red wine.  Wines made from these grapes outside of the Beaujolais region are simply called Gamay. 
Don't confuse this wine with Gamay Beaujolais, which is made from a blend of Pinot Noir and Valdiguie grapes, or with Napa Gamay, another name for Valdiguie.
On Site Price: $94.99

Grenache - Originating from Spain, it is also cultivated in France, North Africa, Australia, and California. Although often used in blends with darker reds such as the Carrignane in France, the Grenache is a light, well structured wine with low tannins. In the Chateauneuf-du-Pape region, the Grenache is the main varietal, although as many as twelve other varietals can be used to make up this unique appelation.
On Site Price: $94.99

Pinot Noir - The red grape varietal from France's great Burgundy region of France, where names like Chambertin, Beaune and Pommard got their reputations. The Pinot Noir grape is not genetically stable, and during the last few decades has given rise to the Pinot Blanc, the Pinot Gris and the Pinot Meunier as well as several well known Pinot Noir clones. Pinot Noir is often referred to as the chameleon of varietals. As a young wine, the Pinot Noir variety exhibits simple, red fruit flavours such as cherry, strawberry and raspberry. As the wine matures the wine takes on a surprising complexity, with aromas of chocolate, venison, figs, prunes, truffles, violets and even a touch of smokiness.

Ruby Cabernet
- A cross between the Carrignane and the Cabarnet Sauvignon,it was developed in the Central Valley of California to give a high yield in hot climatic conditions. The must can be used to increase colour intensity in blends or can be used to produce a light table wine. The organoleptic qualities of the Ruby Cabernet are only predominant in years with ideal conditions for grapes.
On Site Price: $94.99

Shiraz/Petite Sarah
- Mainly cultivated in California, this varietal produces a big, robust, deep red wine with a good aging potential due to the higher tannin levels. Well-suited to the amateur looking for a hefty red, with a substantial body. Sometimes blended with the Zinfandel to add some zest and complexity.
On Site Price: $99.99

Zinfandel
- Probably originating from Italy, it is considered California's own red-wine grape because it is not widely grown elsewhere in the world. Generally produces a rugged and robust wine where wild berries compliment a spicy and peppery smell. Its tannin and alcohol level help make it a good aging wine. Often compared to the Cabernet Sauvignon due to these factors and it's complexity.
On Site Price: $94.99

Barolo (Italy) - The style that is the undisputed ‘King’ of Piedmont, in northwestern Italy. Barolo is world famous for its size and complexity, with strong tannins and a luxurious rich texture.
Barolo's earthy, chocolaty flavors blend with a generous oak contribution.
On Site Price: $99.99

Chianti (Italy) - Once famous worldwide as a simple, quaffing wine bottled in a straw basket, the finest wines of the region have always been packaged in a Bordeaux-shaped bottle. The Chianti wines labeled ''Riserva'' must be aged a minimum of three years and are often fine, age-worthy wines that rank among the best red wines of Italy. Chianti, of course, is a perfect red wine to accompany most Italian cuisine; the best often feature hints of floral complexity in the bouquet, firmly structured medium-bodied flavors and balancing acidity.
On Site Price: $99.99

 

Lambrusco (Italy) - Lambrusco is red wine whose primary characteristics are sparkle, lightness and low alcohol content. Lambrusco's sparkle is considerably lower key than that of Champagne or spumante. Lambrusco is also characteristically light -- not much in the way of tannins or body. Why drink it, then? Because it's delightfully refreshing, with a sparkle-enlivened bouquet that can vary from fruity with pleasant vinous overtones to floral with hints of violets and heather. On the palate it is zesty, with nice fruit flavors and a clean finish.
On Site Price: $99.99

 

Merlot (Italy) - Important varietal in such wines as St. Émilion and Pomerol. Often used in blends with Cabernet Sauvignon or the Cabernet Franc which are more structured. The supple, rounder-bodied Merlot is enjoying increased popularity as a pure varietal (such as the famous Chateau Pétrus which is 100% Merlot). Medium to dark red, its rich and fruity characteristics insinuate blackcurrants, cherries and mint, while the lower tannin indicate a wine that should be drunk relatively young.
On Site Price: $94.99

Montepulciano (Italy) - Primarily cultivated in the south-east of Italy, it's dark and rich red color is characteristic, as are the taste of blackberry flavours, spice and pepper notes. Its moderate acidity usually contributes to a smooth, round-bodied wine. Its tannic content is large enough to often make it a good aging wine. Used also for blending purposes.
On Site Price: $99.99


Valpolicella
(Italy) - Valpolicella is a light, refreshing , easy to drink wine, most similar to a Cote de Rhone. It does not require long aging and then bottled in the spring to be drunk on a daily basis. It tends to have a lively bouquet with floral notes and hints of cherry or berry fruits - this is definitely an aromatic wine. On the palate it is light, fruity, and with a pleasant touch of acidity that leaves a clean finish.
On Site Price: $94.99
 

Amarone (Italy) - Amarone has become one of the most highly sought-after wines from Italy. The wine is produced from the same grape varietals found in Valpolicella (corvina, rondinella and molinara), with considerably more body, flavour and alcohol.
The grapes are allowed to mature slightly longer on the vine before picking. Once picked, and prior to pressing, the grapes are dried on wooden palates for between 3 and 5 months. The wine shows a balance between dried fruit flavours, good acidity and alcohol.
On Site Price: $149.99

  Shiraz (Australia) - Shiraz is the most important and widely planted grape variety in Australia where it consistently produces outstanding medium to full-bodied wines deep crimson in colour and with rich, ripe plum and pepper flavours.
Most Shiraz wines benefit from oak maturation and may be kept for many years. The Barossa Valley and Hunter valley are home to Australia’s greatest Shiraz. The synonym ‘Syrah’ may often be found in other wine producing countries.
