2016 Chardonnay ($19.99): There’s a little oak in this blend of Chardonnay (90 percent) and Riesling (10 percent), but not much. It’s refined but not fussy, with distinct peach and honey flavors. It’s the sort of wine you drink when you’re hanging out in Dorne working on your tan and having inordinate amounts of sexual congress or lounging around King’s Landing, hiding out while your various enemies attempt to storm the Red Keep. Keep it far from the wildfire stash.
2015 Red Blend ($19.99): A dry but robust blend of Malbec, Tempranillo, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Syrah that you can pair with just about anything (the tasting notes suggest blackbird pie, to which we say a hearty hell naw — try just about anything else instead). You’ll taste dark fruit — berries, cherries — and there’s a finish of vanilla. Tyrion Lannister definitely drinks this wine to excess, and you might, too. Beware. It’s that good. We almost had to resort to trial by combat to decide who got to take home the leftovers.
2014 Cabernet Sauvignon ($49.99): They are not drinking this wine on Pyke, that’s for sure. This wine is for royalty. A deep, rich red, Cabral’s Cabernet is delicious, the tannins as smooth as Littlefinger’s lies. Tasting notes suggest black currant and briar, but we are not sure what “briar” tastes like. Probably better than Walder Frey’s last meal. This, then, is truly the wine one savors when one ascends the Iron Throne. But drink fast. You may not be there long.
