   WHAT ARE THE RED WINE TYPES THAT ARE
   THE MOST POPULAR?
There are thousands of different red wine varietals..
…. how do you choose?
      CABERNET SAUVIGNON
      (CA-BER-NAY SO-VIN-YAWN)
Famous for being one of the world’s finest red varietals.
Deep red in color, Cabernet is a beautiful medium to full-bodied, dry
wine.
       MERLOT (MER-LO)
Due to its mellow taste and low acidity it is a good choice for those new to
drinking red wine.

 Merlot is considered a bit softer and
 less tannic than other red wine types,
 like Cabernet.
      SHIRAZ (SHIH-RAZ) / SYRAH (SIH-RAH)
One of the darkest reds, Shiraz can be made as a fruity, sweet wine
with plumy flavors or a dry peppery wine with notes of blackberries,
licorice, and chocolate.
      MALBEC (MAHL-BECK)
Malbec grapes make a mid-bodied, rustic red wine, dry, with
high acidity.
Due to its acidity, it is most often blended with other wines.
       PINOT NOIR (PEE-NO NA-WAHR)
A delicious red wine made from a variety of black grapes that were
originally grown in France’s Burgundy region.
                               The wine is light to moderate in body, fresh, and
                               delicate. It comes in an array of colors, from
                               purplish-red to cherry-red, even turning brown
                               during aging.
     ZINFANDEL (ZIN-FEN-DEL)
One of the “American Classic” wine types.
                       Red Zinfandel wine is deep red in color,
                       bordering on black. It’s a spicy, peppery, heavy
                       wine with a hint of jammy or fruity flavors and
                       aromas, evoking thoughts of blackberries and
                       dark cherries.
     SANGIOVESE (SANJO-VAY-ZEE)
The centre of Italian Chianti wines.
Sangiovese is a black grape that creates
medium-bodied red wine types that can be
beautiful and complex, evoking various fresh
and fruity flavors and aromas.
TASTE OF WINE DEPENDS VERY MUCH ON THE
    GRAPE(S) USED IN THE WINEMAKING.
