Celebrate The Return to Work and School With These 4 Fall Reds

After a long day at school or work, you deserve to kick back and relax with a beverage, and a luscious red is ideal for the season. Here are four of our favourites.

Wine O’Clock Shiraz

Available at our liquor store in downtown Vancouver, Wine O’clock Shiraz is cosy and comforting; perfect for enjoying as the leaves turn. Its flavourful blend of juicy blackberry and black cherry notes pair well with sharp cheeses and marinated steak.

Astrolabe Pinot Noir 2012

Wine and beer store customers in Vancouver rank this wine as a favourite fall wine pick. Upon opening the bottle, you’ll immediately notice the wine’s fruity aroma. Fortunately, it tastes just as good as it smells. It nicely blends plum, dark cherry and brambly fruit, and has a smooth mouthfeel. While some enjoy pairing this wine with roasted salmon, others like drinking it with wild game.

Cabernet Franc 2014

Highlighted by soothing notes of vanilla-oak and fresh mint, Stag’s Hollow Winery Cabernet Franc 2014 is a great fall wine choice. If your dinner fare includes grilled meats and roasted vegetables, this is the ideal pairing. Our Vancouver liquor experts also suggest trying this with smoked sausages.

Painted Turtle Merlot

With its rich, high-quality mouthfeel, you would never guess that Painted Turtle Merlot is actually an affordable wine (which is why it’s so popular at Vancouver wine stores). While Painted Turtle Merlot goes well with beef stir-fry, it also accentuates the sweetness of Canadian cherry pie.
