BIG BOLD REDS

The heavyweights of wine, these powerful, full-bodied reds don’t hold anything back. From Argentine Malbec to Australian Shiraz to Washington Cabernet Sauvignon these are the wines you drink with steak. They hail from regions that are warm and sunny enough to produce intensely ripe grapes, making them typically higher in alcohol and more tannic, yet at their best they match those elements with a depth and complexity of flavor and enough acidity for balance.
