Dry Red Wine
Why We Carry It:
This is one the best buys for Napa wine we've found in years. It's full-bodied and polished, with rich flavors of ripe berries, dark chocolate, and espresso. With prices for Napa going higher and higher, it's wonderful to find a wine of this quality at a (relatively) affordable price.
This is a bottle to treat yourself on a cold winter night bottle with a ribeye or rich beef stew.
