On August Evenings, Campfires and Red Wine. PDF Print E-mail

Ah, late Summer! Is there any better time for red wines?

 

But... isn't summertime for chilled whites, you ask?

 

Not so!

 

As the evenings cool down towards the end of August, we in Northeast Ohio enjoy a few weeks of perfect al-fresco drinking weather. Cool enough to warrant a sweater and a backyard fire, but warm enough that you can stay out for a few hours or more. On nights like these, when campfire smoke tinges the air and makes us think of autumn, a lighter red with spicy undertones is both thirst quenching and soul-warming. We turn to Pinot Noir, Grenache and some rustic old-world styles of red as the season makes its turn towards Fall. Here are some bottles we have been enjoying lately, all available only at Colonial Beverage!

 

2014 Block Nine Caiden's Vineyards California Pinot Noir- $13.99

 

Long and elegant, with confectioned  notes of rich cherry and plum with hints of baking spice and tea. Silky and fruit-forward, this wine is a great counterpoint to charcoal-grilled chicken and veggies!

 

2013 Filon Garnacha Calatayud Spain- $9.99

 

Chewy and extracted, with notes of licorice and craisin underpinned with aromatic dried herbs and some dusty minerality. We paired this up with some rosemary and peppercorn crusted pork chops- YUM!!

 

2011 Icardi Barbera d'Asti Italy- $11.99 (was $19.99)

 

Aromas of fruit compote and layers of cinnamon and allspice, shot through with a characteristic streak of squeaky bright acidity. A kiss of supple tannins evokes memories of potpourri and dried roses. A great accompaniment to varied hard cheeses and dried fruits, or a juicy burger hot off the grill!
