Celebrate the month of love with swoon-worthy wines you’re sure to adore—namely our latest Wines of the Month! From light rosé to velvety pinot noir, local love to international intrigue, these pro picks will tantalize your taste buds from the very first sip.
Donati Claret: The winery is located in the Paicines AVA area just east of Monterey and benefits from warm days and cool night thanks to the breezes coming in from Monterey Bay. Notes of dark cherry, cola and cocoa dominate in this red Bordeaux blend, which has long been one of our favorites, as it’s a real crowd pleaser.
Gérard Bertrand Côte des Roses Rosé: Most people initially buy this wine because of the unique bottle shape, (when you turn it upside down it looks like a long-stemmed rose), but it’s what’s inside that keeps them coming back for more. It’s a beautiful light copper pink color with hints of rose petal and red currant fruit.
Raeburn Pinot Noir: This newcomer to our selection has already won over many of our guests. Bright focused aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry and dark red cherry are topped off with a hint of oak. Its beautiful, velvety texture makes it all the more enjoyable.
Casa Santos Lima Confidencial Reserva: Both the 2013 and 2014 versions of this wine have earned 90+ point scores from Wine Enthusiast and are an incredible value from this topnotch Portuguese producer. This blend features many of the different grape varieties grown on their estate, resulting in a complex and sophisticated, yet smooth and easy-to-drink wine.
