Five Red Wines To Try This Fall

Fall is almost here!

I’m low key excited for some cooler weather so I can break back into red wines all the time and not sweat my face off every time I walk outside. I know you’re all excited too. I can sense it.

The great thing about red wine is there are so many options to chose from. It’s not a like a rosé where you’re more limited on the variation. You can have a Merlot, Malbec, Cab, Pinot Noir, ya da ya da ya. The world is your oyster my friends. Here are my first 5 red wines I plan on breaking into this fall. I’ve had most of these red wines before, but they were so good I’m coming back for more. I’ve listed the tasting notes for you so you can get an idea of what wine you might like most!

  1. Good selection. I’ve had the Bogle and it is very tasty. I’m def a red girl. I wish you would have included the prices. I always think it’s interesting to compare.
