Fall is nearly here and you know what that means… time to switch out your wardrobe for all things warm - sweaters, scarves, boots, and more. While you’re switching out your wardrobe, can you think of something else that better suits the fall season?
It’s time to cozy up with a glass of wine! Check out these four wines that are perfect for getting you in the mood for fall.
Orin’s Swift 8 Years In the Desert
Heady aromas of brambly raspberry, black fig and peppercorn dominate; time in glass exposes more—dark chocolate, fennel, and High Sierra forest floor. The palate is lush and opulent with blackberries, dark plums, and currants. More flavors add to the quality of the blend—a visceral minerality and fresh Herbs de Provence. Fully integrated with puckering tannins, the wine bows out with finesse.
Orin’s Swift Abstract
Grenache, Syrah, Petite Sirah
Expansive aromas of ripe red fruits—raspberries, bing cherries, and strawberries—and a touch of Boysen- and huckleberries open the nose. The aromas continue onto the palate with added layers of charred meat, rhubarb, thyme, surrounding a dark fruit core. Smooth, enveloping and lasting, the wine finishes with a pleasing maraschino cherry note.
Quilt’s Cabernet Sauvignon
A seamless blend of aromas of creme de cassis, hazelnut, cocoa, blackberry preserves, a charry meat toastiness, dark fruits and blackberry pie along with suggestions of dark licorice, stewed rhubarb, strawberry, spice, and vanillin. The wine’s weight is first felt on the front of the palate but then coats the entire mouth with placating tannin and a light, pleasing grittiness.
Austin Hope’s Treana Cabernet Sauvignon
An excellent display of Paso Roble Cabernet. At first glance, this dark crimson wine sets the stage for the beautiful aromas of warm chocolate, roasted coffee & toasty cedar. On the palate, intense dark fruit, sweet vanilla combine with smoky-oak to give a long rich mouthfeel that finishes with balanced acidity and moderate, velvety tannins.
