Sure, Spring is here and Summer is coming, but we aren't going to completely go on a red wine hiatus, are we? How are we going to wash down all those grilled steaks and hamburgers? Yes, you can #roséallday, but when that juicy, red meat comes off the grill and lands on your plate, you need a hearty red wine to really make it sing, amiright?

BUT, on a warm - or hot - sunny day, you don't want to be weighed down by a heavy red wine. What to do? You need to find wines that deliver big time on flavor, yet remain light on their feet. We've got it covered with today's Six-Pack Special, the 2015 Casarena Estate Red Blend!

The folks at Casarena Estate take a balanced approach to their craft, eschewing the practice of long-term aging in new oak barrels in order to showcase the spectacular fruit and terroir of Mendoza's Lujan de Cuyo region; their wines scratch that red wine itch without being too cumbersome. Grapes grown here benefit from abundant sun and a hot, dry climate that is moderated by the cooling effects of the high altitude and proximity to the Andes Mountains. The wide diurnal temperature variation brings forth fruit that balances ripe fruit and acidity. The alluvial soil, in addition to lending a distinct complexity to the finished wines, is not fertile, which puts stress on the vines. THIS IS A GOOD THING because stressed vines produce less vegetation and smaller berries with more concentrated fruit.

Today's wine is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Malbec sourced from vines with an average age of 30 years. It is complex yet fresh, with flavors of black cherries, blackberries, baking spices, pepper, and woodsmoke. It finishes long, with bright acidity, making it the perfect red for the warmer months. Check out the press!

90 Points, Vinous (Stephen Tanzer)
"Bright ruby-red. Showing its Malbec side on the nose, with dominant aromas of blackberry, chocolate, and licorice. Juicy, spicy wine with lovely inner-mouth energy and umami character to its dense, smooth flavors of dark berries and Tellicherry peppercorn. Finishes with substantial dusty, ripe tannins and subtle lingering sweetness." (July 2017)
