Full-Bodied Wines for Fall

Today, we’re talking about big and bold wines for this autumn season. What better way to enjoy the cooler weather than to cozy up in front of the fire with a glass of vino? Here, Jamie from the H-E-B Montrose Market in Houston shares her picks for robust fall wines with lots of character.

First, we have the Treana Chardonnay ($16.98). From the Central Coast in California, this bottle is a more traditional chardonnay with a rich oakiness. Underneath the oak, you’ll also taste peach, pear and a hint of vanilla.

Next, we’re heading up to Washington and the Yakima Valley for Airfield Estates Red Wine Blend ($14.98). This affordable blend is a mix of cabernet, merlot and a touch of malbec. I love Washington wines – they have lovely dark chocolate and espresso undertones but still have a nice acidic backbone.

Lastly, a unique bourbon barrel-aged wine: the 1000 Stories Cabernet Sauvignon ($16.98). This wine is rich and tastes a little extra boozy because of the caramel and vanilla from the bourbon. It’s a great bottle for drinking on its own, but it also can stand up to a butter-basted rib-eye or a hearty winter stew.

As always, you can find all of this wine at your local H-E-B. Bonus: Get 10% off your entire purchase when you buy six or more bottles.
