Recommended by: Ruthanne Timm and Shalonda VanAuken, Beyond Napa at Rock Island Studios in Old Town Square

Price: $26.99

Tastes like: “William Cole Winemaker’s Reserve is a full-bodied blend of Cabernet, Merlot, and the Chilean flagship varietal Carmenere. This unique old-world style blend offers tastes of black fruits and vanilla mingled with smoky spices and herbs, resulting in a rich bouquet of earthy flavors and delicate tannins.”

Pairs well with: “Wonderful by the glass as an aperitif, this wine also pairs perfectly with grilled red meats, game birds, mushroom risotto and aged cheese.”

Comments: “Not only is William Cole Winemaker’s Reserve an excellent wine and a good value, it also has a local connection: The daughter of winery owner William Cole lives in Salina and is a partner in Alobar Imports, a small Salina-based importer distributing a handful of estate premium wines throughout Kansas.”
