Benton Lane Pinot Noir ($22.99): This dark crimson hued wine has aromas of black cherry, cassis and red licorice. The texture is quite plush and velvety with integrated tannin, so it will pair with a variety of cuisines. The flavors are classic Oregon pinot noir cherry and berry nuances, with notes of cured meats and baking spices layered in.
Kanonkop Pinotage ($39.99): Deep intense ruby plum color with a purple hue. A bold intensity of red plum, red berries and a concentration of dark chocolate, vanilla and aromatic sweet spice. Offers a good complexity with layered flavors that will continue to develop and integrate for years to come.
