GOING ON A BLIND DATE

Chatea de La Chaize- Brouilly

The most versatile wine- with both food and people. 
Deep ruby with crimson glints. Promising nose of red fruits with smoke and floral touches. A supple, charming Brouilly delivering delicate aromas with an elegant underlying texture. Very pure, sound and serene in style.

STAYING IN WITH YOUR WEIRD ROOMMATE

Earthquake Zinfandel- Lodi, CA

$25.99

California Zins are amongst the highest-alcohol wines.                                                  This one is 15.5% ABV so... that will help.                                                                         It's uber-dark chocolaty on the nose, where there are also aromas of black pepper, black cherry, raisin and leather. In the mouth, it has a lusciously smooth with flavors of spicy black cherry, plum and dark chocolate. 

TRYING TO MAKE AN IMPRESSION

Cerasuolo di Vittoria Classico 2013

$37.99

You can talk about how it comes from super-old vineyards and it how well it goes       with a variety of foods.                                                                                                              The juicy palate tastes of black cherry, cinnamon, orange zest, and aromatic herb while its mineral vein is noticeable alongside smooth tannins and fresh acidity. Ruby red in color with aromas of cherry, red berries, plum, and pomegranate. 

HANGING OUT WITH YOUR EX

A brut traditional method sparkling wine with a slightly lower ABV.
You will need this so that no mistakes are made.

WATCHING NETFLIX ALONE
