Red Single Varietals

Red Single Varietals is a diverse category with many personalities and contributions, and of course – a plethora of hidden gems awaiting discovery. This year you can uncork some very intriguing wines starting with a bourbon barrel aged zinfandel with boundless charisma, a dusty, spicy, chocolatey grenache or a funky, earthy and plump bonarda. Each of these reds provides an individualistic context to the world of wine. Get out and explore! Mike Roberts
