G 7 Moons Red Blend
This blend opens with aromas of chocolate-covered cherries, baking spices, and vanilla bean. Flavors of strawberry preserves, cherry cola, and milk chocolate follow through to a fruit- forward, lingering  nish.
H Cooper & Thief Red Blend
A dark and jammy wine loaded with bourbon  avors and aromas, this red ages
for three months in bourbon barrels, which allows for soft, velvety tannins with a subtle heat. The combined result
is a rich  avor with a long, lingering  nish.

K Saved Red Blend
This wine leads o  with beautiful aromas of black cherry, ripe plum, and hints of cola and vanilla. On the palate, elegant tannins are accented with  avors of currants and holiday spices, leading to a lengthy  nish.
L Saved Magic Marker Rosé
With aromas of light red fruit and rhubarb, accented by a hint of thyme and grapefruit zest, this wine has a crisp and bone-dry mouthfeel. Fruit  avors
of grapefruit, ripe strawberry, and honeydew  ll the mouth.
