Mostly A’s - Pleasant Pinot Noir
You are charming and sweet yet challenging and bold. You are loyal and always want to help your friends but with that being said you can be critical and are not afraid to speak the truth when your friends need to hear it. Just like Pinot Noir, you are diverse and easily fit into a group. Try these different types of Pinot Noir this fall:
This beautiful Aussie Pinot releases bursts of ripe cherries and hints of dark chocolate, which lead to a palate of soft spiced fruit framed in toasty oak that flows into a smooth velvet finish. Another great wine from Yellow Tail!
This Cali Pinot Noir has an excellent oak structure, rich, complex, and nuanced black currant and raspberry notes. The grapes are handpicked and the wine spends 16 months in French oak to smooth it out and preserve the richness and finesse.
Mostly B’s - OH SO Sweet Red Blend
You are bright, personable and many people feed off your energy and vibes. You receive many compliments on your fits and get told they match your personality. Like a Red Blend, you get the party started and can go all night long. When you are around it’s always a night to remember - or forget. Try these different types of Red Blend this fall:
This delicious, softly sweet red is a veritable fruit bowl of cherry, strawberry, and blueberry with a soft, easy-drinking palate. A hint of fizziness keeps the wine fresh on the palate, making it the perfect pairing for desserts and weekend brunch.
Produced primarily from the Brachetto grapes from Italy, this sweet yet crisp red wine has fresh strawberry and red berry flavors with a light, natural carbonation. A refreshing red wine to be served chilled and accompanied by fresh fruit and cheese.
Mostly C’s - My My My Merlot
You are versatile, charismatic, and are never afraid to try new things. In a large group, people tend to flock to your approachable attitude and many enjoy conversing with you. Like Merlot, you are adaptable in many settings. Never boring and always down for a good time, try these different types of Merlot this fall:
Perfect for any type of barbecue, or hamburgers on the grill, this French Merlot is perfectly blended with ripe plums and fleshly fruit to have a velvet finish.
This is an approachable Argentinian Merlot that will surprise your taste buds. Ripe red fruit flavors with a touch of spice. Cherry and vanilla with hints of black pepper on the nose makes a great pair for grilled meats and pasta dishes with herbs.
Mostly D’s - Classic Cabernet
You are strong, bold, and enjoy the finer things in life. You don’t settle for anything less than perfection. You may come off pretty strong, but you can have a soft side to you —occasionally. Like Cab, you are elegant and a classic whether it be your taste in fashion, food, movies or books. Always posh, try these different types of Cabernet this fall:
This delicious Cabernet greets you with aromas of red jammy fruits and black cherry. Hints of toasty oak lead to a delightful finish. A true crowd-pleaser, this is great for entertaining and pairs well with hors d'oeuvres.
This young Cab leads with scents of ground cinnamon and mocha, and a savory umami spice note to the aroma. The flavors are substantial and supple with juicy flavors of dark carob and plum tea brought to an elegant close.
So there you have it. Whether you're A, B, C, or D, there's a red wine for everyone this fall season. You don't have to be a wine expert to pour yourself a glass or find your perfect match, so what are you waiting for? Cheers!
