Rimann's Grapevine - Grilling Wines

Foxglove Cabernet Sauvignon

The Paso Robles appellation of California is establishing itself as a powerhouse source for intensely-flavored wines, made primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Syrah grape varieties. Its’ warm, dry climate leads to spicy and full-bodied reds, exemplified in the Foxglove Cabernet Sauvignon. Brambly blackberry, black cherry, and currant fruit flavors get a touch of cedar and spice on the back end, making this a great match for many different cuts of beef, as well as mesquite-smoked pork.

Hedges CMS Red

CMS (Cabernet-Merlot-Syrah) is one of the original red blends of Washington’s Columbia Valley. The Hedges family was one of the first to establish vineyards in the prestigious Red Mountain district in the eastern part of the state. This blend exhibits flavors of black plum, black cherry, and fig, with an interesting clove and dried herb quality that lends itself to a wide variety of dishes, from grilled pork chops with an herb chimichurri to grilled portabella burgers.

Revelry Merlot

Washington State is really asserting itself as a producer of distinct and exciting versions of this noble grape variety. Rich cherry and blackberry flavors get a dose of dark chocolate and vanilla imparted from 16 months spent in American oak barrels. The dark, rich flavors of this wine complement coffee-rubbed steaks or steak au poivre…something with equally bold flavors!

Zolo Malbec

A grill pack wouldn’t be complete without a good Argentine Malbec! Zolo produces wines organically in Mendoza, utilizing expertise from a former winemaker at the famous Pétrus estate in Bordeaux and routinely receives great accolades from different wine magazines. Ripe black cherry, mulberry, and raspberry flavors get a nice floral lift on the nose and well-integrated tannins on the palate. Beef is a natural pairing, but something a little more exotic like duck or venison would be just as comfortable with this wine.

Babich Sauvignon Blanc

Fresh and citrusy flavors characterize this white wine from New Zealand, home to some of the most distinctive and intriguing representations of this grape variety. Lime, white grapefruit, and honeydew melon flavors are accented with a lightly herbal note characteristic of Sauvignon Blanc. The crisp acidity and bright fruit flavors make this a good match for any type of seafood or grilled chicken, especially when accompanied by asparagus or other grilled veggies!

Ercavio Tempranillo

Lightly smoky and spicy qualities in this wine make it a natural fit for any kind of barbeque or smoked sausages. Tempranillo’s bright cherry and raspberry flavors are really present here, with just a dash of smoke and spice that give it real depth and complexity. As is befitting for a Spanish wine, grilled chorizo or paella featuring grilled seafood or grilled chicken would make a delicious accompaniment.
