Red Wines at Pascale’s Liquor
Red Wines are produced with various dark-colored grape varieties. The actual color of these wines can vary between an intense violet you see in young wines to a brick red found in mature wines. We have an unbeatable red wine selection from every major wine region in the world in a wide array of varietals.
Flavors: bell pepper, green olive, herb, black currant, black cherry, blackberry, plum, spices
Cabernet Sauvignons are some of the driest reds and come from the world’s foremost red wine-grape variety. They can range from a bold, full-body wine made with dark black fruits, spice and oak to a softer style with a dominant fruit flavor. These wines are high in tannins and have a great depth of flavors.
Flavors: watermelon, strawberry, cherry, plum, currant, spices
Merlots are the Chardonnay of reds. They’re usually a lighter, versatile and good quality red wine. As Merlot ages, the herbal flavors become stronger as the fruity flavors begin to fade.
Flavors: ripe tomato, beet root, black olive, black cherry, raspberry, plum, spices
Pinot Noirs are a light-bodied, dry red wine featuring a variety of tastes from lush and fruity to herbal and earthy, and emitting an earthy aroma. We have selections from the Burgundy region in France, California and the Willamette Valley in Oregon, among others.
Flavors: raspberry, blackberry, black cherry, boysenberry, cranberry, raisin, prune, spices
Zinfandels are normally a deep red color and wines range from light and sweet to intense and full-bodied. We carry California Zinfandels and several from the Puglia region in Italy.
Flavors: blackberry, black currant, boysenberry, plum, black pepper, clove
Shiraz, or Syrah as it’s known in France, are complex, yet smooth wines with spicy and rich flavors. Shiraz wines are Australia’s viniculture claim to fame. We carry several Australian brands, among others from France, California and South Africa.
Flavors: sour cherry, blackberry, spice
Malbec wines are typically dry, medium to full-bodied and higher in tannins and alcohol. They have risen to prominence in Argentina.
Flavors: bell pepper, cherry, blackberry, spice
A distant relative of Merlot and cousin of Malbec, Carmenere is to Chile as Malbec is to Argentina. Originally blended with Merlot, winemakers soon realized its own flavor warranted creating single varietal wines.
Red Blends have increased in popularity and offer a blend for all palates. Most blends have Zinfandel as the main grape and can range from big and bold to softer, less tannic styles.
Many of our Italian Reds come from the Piedmont, Tuscany and Veneto regions and our French Reds from the Bordeaux, Burgundy and Rhone regions. We also carry Spanish Reds, including Sangria, primary varietals like Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mencia and Monastrell, and blends from the Priorat region.
