2013 Great American Wine Company Red Blend

The Red Blend offers bold flavors with friendly, laidback demeanor and is dominated by Zinfandel, the classic American grape. Red fruits lead the nose with dark cherries, black raspberries and vanilla piecrust. The palate is rich and velvety with balanced tannins and a lasting fruit imprint on the finish. A perfect companion to barbecue, pair this medium-bodied blend with grilled steaks or ribs.

Varietal Composition: 74% Zinfandel, 20% Petite Sirah, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon

Alcohol by volume: 13.5%

2012 Great American Wine Company Chardonnay

The 2012 Chardonnay exhibits classic American style. The aromas are bold, opening with clean, bright citrus and soft vanilla oak layered over gentle stone fruits. Flavors deliver a similar luxury of smooth fruit, with red apple pie and white peach flavors. Lemon oil and grapefruit add lift to the round, voluptuous palate, accompanying the fruit into a long finish. Pair this generous Chardonnay with traditional dishes such as buttermilk chicken, grilled swordfish or roasted turkey

Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay

Alcohol by volume: 13.5%

2012 Great American Wine Company Cabernet

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon has a bold, rugged character. The nose is big and captivating, offering heady dark fruit, cigar box, leather and dried sage. The palate is smooth and supple, with juicy boysenberry and black cherry flavors. It is layered with toasty oak spices, followed by firm tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Pair with big flavors, such as grilled meats or rich pastas.
