There’s something about the fall air that makes me want to sit back, relax and drink a glass of wine. The crisp fall breeze is perfect for sitting on your patio or porch and enjoying glass of vino. Sipping Red wine in the fall is my favorite. From Pinot’s to Cabernets, to Malbec wines I love the aromas and flavors of a lovely bouquet. Whether you are snuggling up by a cozy fire with a loved one or enjoying a night out with some friends you can enjoy any of the following glasses of wine. Here are some of my favorite red wines to drink during the fall season
5. Yellow & Blue Malbec
This environmentally friendly wine is oh so delicious. It is packaged in a recycled container instead of a glass bottle. This organic wine has a dark red purple tint. This is a medium to full bodied flavorful bouquet. Aromas of chocolate and black cherries make for a perfect fall adult beverage. The average price per container is $10. It is best when paired with roast lamb chops.
4. Avalon, Cabernet
The catch phrase of this wine is Cabernet for the soul and that it is. Cabs tend to be bold beautiful bouquets. This particular Cabernet has light smoky flavors with aromas of cherries and chocolate with subtle notes of vanilla and spice. I often enjoy this flavorful blended bottle with Baked Dijon Salmon or Shrimp Scampi. The average price per bottle is $12.
3. Casillero Del Diablo, Pinot Noir
This is a light body red wine with medium acidity. It is a deep dark colored wine with dark plum and chocolate flavors. This Pinot Noir has aromas much like strawberries, raspberries, and toasted oak. The average price per bottle is $11.
2. Puerto Viejo, Merlot
This bold ruby red colored merlot is very smooth yet complex. I usually am not a big fan of Merlots but this one has me hooked. Puerto Viejo has fruity aromas such as blackberries, dried plums, toasted bread, and vanilla which make for a well balanced bouquet. This is best when paired with meats such as Filet Mignon or a Blue Cheese Burger. The average cost per bottle $12.
1. Montoya, Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is responsible for some of my favorite wines. Puerto Viejo is one of favorites. It is so light and flavorful. Raspberry and Blackberry flavors with a hint of dried figs and spice make this pinot noir outstanding. A great pairing with this bouquet would be a fresh mozzarella and tomato salad or creamy fresh pasta. The average cost per bottle $15.
