Hot weather calls for chillable summer reds

It’s looking like this summer is going to be HOT. In regards to wine, most people associate this season with lights whites or refreshing bubbles, but what about reds? Our beverage director Cappie Peete knows that summer can be the perfect weather for a red wine.

What’s Marrow Magnum Monday? Each Monday, Peete picks a different magnum of wine to offer by the glass. The magnum picks are organized by a monthly theme, giving you a chance to do a deep dive into a region or style by trying wines in large format.

Monday is also the only day of the week that we offer our embered bone marrow--and we’ve come up with some  new ways to feature it!

On June 3rd, we’ll be featuring Las Jaras Glou Glou, from Mendocino County California.  This vibrant red blend is just what you need to beat this heat!  In the words of winemakers Eric Wareheim and Joel Burt, this is a wine that is "fresh, chuggable, and light that tastes like sparkles and bright, summer fruit."  

On June 10th, we will feature Marziano Abbona Papa Celso Dolcetto di Dogliani. This juicy and luscious Dolcetto is named after the father of Marziano, who planted every vine in this vineyard.  This wine strikes a beautiful balance between power and elegance with juicy dark fruits and very delicate tannins.

On June 17th, our selection will be Domaine du Pavillon de Chavannes Cote de Brouilly. This old school Beaujolais comes from the highest elevation cru vineyards and offers complexity that you won't find in other Gamays.  It is full of intense fruity and floral aromas with a burst of juicy refreshment.

On June 24th, our final selection this month is Girolamo Russo A Rina Etna Rosso. This exciting red comes from the up and coming region of Etna in Sicily and is great for the Pinot Noir lover. Made from the Nerello Mascalese grape, this selection is full of red berry and currant fruit with a strong mineral backbone that lends incredible complexity and balance.  

These chillable reds will make you rethink everything you thought you knew about red wines. Make your Monday reservation(s) here.
