This is Brut, the name associated with sparkling wine from the Cava region of Spain made with the Methode Traditionnelle. The wine itself has notes of green apples, pears, with a touch of ginger, and a sweet taste with, a little bit of dryness on the pallet. Honestly I would pair with a fruity desert something like mixed berry flan as the dryness in the Brut will tamp down any excess sugar present. Overall a good time to drink. 

This is another “Shelf Talker” from the Czech Republic a region I did not know produce wine. Called “Pink Gummy Bear”described by a relative newcomer in wine making by the name of Milan Nestarec as “My Spirit Animal”. The varietal is a red grape called Zweigelt. This wine has hints of red fruit, dried herbs, again described a forest floor taste with an added bonus for those who prefers things natural this wine comes with the title of “practicing organic”. Personally I would consume this with a red meat most likely braised skirt steak, potatoes with a brown roux sauce. Something hardy.

 

This is a sweet red wine from Spain made with Cabernet Franc red grapes. This wine is imported by Vino Imports located in the Bronx New York. Its sweet with a deep brilliant cherry red color. It has notes of citrus specifically orange, with a nice harmony between the fruits, and tannin’s with an light body, and a medium finish. This can be consumed with a entree, but usually with appetizers.

 

This is a red wine “Shelf Talker” from Castilla-La Mancha Spain. This one is unusual as its made with a red grape called Grenacha, or Grenache which I already know, and another red grape known as Moravia Agria which is a less known regional variety. This wine when smelled has notes of spices, cedar, while when tasted has notes of black cherries, prunes, with earthly undertones. Certified organic, and pairs with spaghetti, and meatballs with a nice cherry tomato sauce.
