For a versatile red wine that is simultaneously light-bodied and full of flavor, choose from our inventory of pinot noir. Enjoy fruity notes of juicy cherry, cranberry, pomegranate and raspberry with hints of vanilla and spicy clove as you sip. Pinot noir has the best of both worlds when it comes to food pairings – its light enough to drink with fresh seafood and rich enough to enjoy alongside meaty steak and savory mushroom dishes. Visit Pascale’s Liquor Square to pick up a bottle of the well-balanced Alchemist Pinot Noir, elegant Meiomi Pinot Noir, fruity La Croisade Reserve Pinot Noir or any of our other pinot noir wines.
The signature burgundy shade of merlot isn’t the only reason this red wine stands out from the crowd. Its full-bodied cherry, raspberry, plum and even chocolate flavor notes make for a delicious glass of wine every time, especially when served at room temperature. Add merlot to your shopping list before your next dinner party with friends and family. This red wine will bring out the flavors of rich beef, pork and turkey entrées with sides of roasted vegetables and mashed potatoes. Or, for a quiet evening in front of the fireplace, a glass of Angel’s Landing or Oak Grove merlot is just as suitable.
If you’re looking for a deeper, more full-bodied red wine, try a delectable cabernet sauvignon. With juicy, fruity flavors of plump blackberries and dark currents and tastes of black pepper, vanilla and licorice, every sip of cabernet sauvignon, such as Cricklewood Cabernet or Happy Camper Cabernet, will make a lasting impression. Pour glasses for friends and family around a meal of duck, ribs, hamburgers, lamb or beef.
Select from our inventory of delicious malbec red wines if you’re searching for an easy-to-drink, yet sophisticated, wine. For a full-bodied wine, try Spice Block Malbec or El Libre Malbec from Argentina. Experience rich, fruity flavor notes of black cherry, pomegranate and plum when you have a slightly chilled glass of malbec. Enjoy alongside a meal of beef or pork shoulder with roasted red bell peppers and sautéed mushrooms.
Shiraz, commonly known as Syrah, is a full-bodied red wine with an intense flavor profile of blackberry, blueberry and boysenberry. Exuding notes of licorice, mint, herbs and smoke, Shiraz wines like Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz from Pascale’s Liquor Square are perfect for a cozy evening on the sofa or a family dinner party. Pass out glasses of Vandenberg Shiraz when you cook up a bold-flavored meal, from juicy hamburgers to barbeque chicken legs and grilled veggies.
Zinfandel grapes can be blended to create a variety of delicious rosé and red wines. On its own, zinfandel wine is typically medium-bodied and can be both fruity and spicy, with flavors of sour cherry, blueberry and blackberry. Enjoy a glass of Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel or Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel for a relaxing evening with friends or alongside an exotic meal of Chinese, Thai or Indian cuisines.
