eptember Wine Club Selections have arrived!
In the Connoisseur Red Club, we have the award winning 2018 Cuda Ridge Malbec, and the 2018 Verdad Tempranillo, described as “the best edition of this wine yet” by Lindquist Family Wines.

Pinot Noir is like the gentle artist of red grapes. It’s not as bold as some others, with a light, pale color due to its thin skin. Imagine tasting flavors of red fruits like cherries, raspberries, and strawberries, along with hints of flowers and a touch of earthiness.
Its smooth taste is easy to enjoy, thanks to a nice balance of acidity and tannins, making it feel gentle in your mouth. Compared to darker red wines, Pinot Noir feels lighter and you can almost see through it.
This captivating grape loves cooler places to grow, like Burgundy in France, where it showcases its special flavors. It also thrives in places like Oregon, California, and New Zealand.
