Global Cuvee Amarone

Cellar Craft - Think of Valpolicella on steroids.  It is the same blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes, plus there is grape pack made with equal portions of California Cabernet and Barbera grapes and sun-dried red wine grapes.  The result is a robust wine with an earthy aroma backed by notes of spice and vanilla and an alcohol level above 14% which gives the wine a good mouth feel.  When young, concentrated flavours of black cherry and figs compete with un-mellowed oak and firm tannins.  6-months in the bottle will bring harmony to the flavours and softer tannins for a rich, well-rounded mouth feel and lingering finish.  Another year or two of aging will create a truly special wine which can be enjoyed like port or ready to take on your most robust foods like game, sticky ribs, rich pasta or blue cheese.  You will find it hard to find a kit this good for. $96.99 

Italian Brunello

RJ Spagnol - This is fast becoming our biggest selling kit in this price and it is one of Italy's most popular exports.  This powerfull classic is full and expressive on the palate with lively cherry and a brisk acidity, supported by ample smooth tannins.  There is a deep and lingering finish to this garnet coloured wine.$91.99

Australian Cabernet Sauvingon

RJ Spagnol - The warm Southern sun produces a bold Cabernet with the varietal's signature nose: black currants, dark chocolate and subtle toasty notes.  This is a full-bodied wine with hints of coffee laced with vanilla notes. $91.99

Chilean Malbec

RJ Spagnol - This wine is the hidden treasure in our 5-week lineup.  This is wow wine.  It is hard to not open a second bottle, especially when your wife has a corkscrew in her hand and says, "Back off Varmit". With cool temperatures and plenty of sunshine, Chile has ideal growing conditions for this full-bodied wine.  Complimented by warm spicy notes, Malbec boasts aromas and flavours of ripe blackberry and blackcurrant.  The additon of Merlot grape skins creates a chewy, deep rustic red wine with intense cherry flavours and blended oak undertones. $91.99

Washington Merlot

RJ Spagnol - Our staff are blown away by this wine.  This deep intense wine exhibits the classic Washington flavours of cassis and chocolate.  Dark and rich with complex notes of blackberries,the velvety tannins enhance the mouthfeel and stature of this crimson wine.  Great for trunkk agers and those that can wait a couple of months to open their wine. $91.99

BC Pinot Noir

RJ Spagnol - Grown in the Okanagan Valley, this wine has fine aromas of black cherries and fresh strawberries.  The French oak produces silky tannins, while subtle notes of pepper and spice round out the experience.  This is the only red wine in this series that does not have grape skins added during fermentation, which means it produces a lighter wine, more accurate to a good commercial Pinot Noir. $91.99

South African Pinotage

RJ Spagnol - This grape is native to South Africa amd is a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault.  This Pinotage has lots of dark fruit and serious tannins with subtle dark chocolate and spice undertones.  This is training wheels wine for those that are just starting to get into red wine, but can also be enjoyed by those that like a more full-bodied wine, but want something a little different. $91.99

Italian Primitivo

RJ Spagnol - Rich in nature, this rustic European wine opens up with a luscious bouquet of ripe black cheery and delicate spices underlain with a hint of toasted oak.  Italian Primitivo is called Zinfandel in California, and the additon of the Zinfandel skins blesses this wine with well rounded tannins, berry fruit and long, complex finish. $91.99

California Syrah

RJ Spagnol - California Syrah, also know as Shiraz, is a newcomer to the California vineyards.  This wine is remarkably smooth, with its raspberry and peppery spice blend in harmony to create and elegant flavour.  It is full-bodied in character, with soft, balanced tannins and a lingering smooth finish. $91.99
