Even more fun new wine selections for springtime and Fiesta season from Wine Manager Ralph Cortez at the H-E-B Plus at Blanco & 1604 in San Antonio. We’re talking a red hot rosé, a bold pinot noir and one smoky cabernet from one of my favorite spots for cabs in the US…
Dry, sweet, fruity and crisp; a Provence style rosé (my fave!) with floral notes and fresh pear and cherry flavors. Excellent with BBQ or just about anything you can imagine!
Sledgehammer Pinot Noir
This is a smooth yet bold pinot noir with aromas of black cherry and vanilla spice, plus flavors of rich blueberry and cherry with soft tannins on the finish.
Sagelands Dark Shadows Cabernet Sauvignon
The Sagelands Cab comes from Columbia Valley in southern Washington State, an ‘under the radar’ wine region right here in the US producing some fantastic cabernets. This guy’s got a smoky nose, hints of vanilla and spice, with flavors of blackberry and plum.
