A wine for all times, Martini & Rossi’s Asti Sparkling Wine can be paired with just about everything from snacks to full-course meals. This is one that many non-drinkers have cited as their transition into the wonderful world of fermented grapes. The most seasoned of wine connoisseurs are in positive agreement when it comes to the tastes of Martini & Rossi. It has a crisp, fruity and sweet flavor that stands up well in comparison to even the most expensive of brands. Along with the favorable pricing, it’s usually fairly easy to get your hands on a bottle, with availability at many retailers. The years may come and go, but this one remains a constant favorite for many.

Harvested from white and red grapes, Korbel’s Sweet Rose Blend tastes just as delicious as it smells. Of course, the taste itself is sweet, but just the right kind of sweet that’s not too overpowering. The flavor is further enhanced when paired with appetizers and fruits. The nature of this blend is bright and bubbly. Bring a bottle to your next social event as it embodies qualities that cater to both tastes of new and refined wine drinkers. Beginners tend to love everything about Korbel Sweet Rose Blend, and commonly reference it as a favorite, even as they move forward with their wine drinking experiences.

Ripe and well-balanced, Santa Ema’s Reserve Merlot offers more of a strong taste, mixed with flavors that elude the scent of blackberries and plums. The color of the wine is a darker tone of violet and red, and it pairs wonderfully with meats and cheeses, making it great to sip on throughout dinner. The elegance of this mixture is praiseworthy as it goes down nice and smooth.

J Lohr Seven Oaks’s Cabernet Sauvignon

J Lohr Seven Oaks’s Cabernet Sauvignon is a well-aged drink that continues to get better with time, as many wines do. However, that doesn’t mean it fails to meet the high standards of drinkers who lose patience. Opened and poured at any age, this cabernet will satisfy. The history of the brand is just as rich as the soiling practices that lead to its impressive taste. Many drinkers tend to applaud it for the nice finish and equal balance of flavors. Matching well with hearty meals, this deep red and purple cabernet is vibrant and full of flavor.

Bolla’s Pinot Noir

Enjoy Bolla Pinot Noir with or without food. The aging of this wine is not a major factor, so don’t torture yourself by holding off. It can be enjoyed right away. Upon opening the bottle, smell the cork to fill those nostrils with an aroma of fresh fruits. Pinot Noir is derived from black grapes, giving it that deep color. Drinkers typically pair this one with lighter meals of meat, fish and cheese. Bolla is a wine distributor that knows vino, explaining why they have been in the business for over 125 years and hold a solid reputation throughout the wine community.
