3 Red Wines Perfect for Winter, Manhattan, New York

There’s nothing better than curling up with a glass of delicious red wine during the winter months. Before you make your next wine shop purchase, it’s important to know exactly which varieties are best suited for cold weather. Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits in the Upper West Side is the neighborhood’s premier purveyor of high-quality beverages. They share their top recommendations below.

The 3 Best Red Wines for Winter Weather 

1. Malbec

Few things are a better match with a roaring fire than a glass of Malbec. Its plum and black cherry flavors are enhanced by a full body and mouthfeel. A wine shop will typically stock a selection of Malbec from Argentina, but it’s also found in many blends from France and California.

2. Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine ShopLovers of robust reds know that Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the biggest and boldest varietals on the market. Sometimes referred to as the king of grapes, it’s a versatile option with a flavor that is largely dependent on its growing region. For earthy, full-bodied kinds, look to California. Their rich and jammy taste is the perfect companion on a cold winter’s night.

3. Bordeaux

Bordeaux, France, is often touted as one of the finest regions in the world, so it’s no wonder that wine shops typically dedicate a large section of its inventory to this area. Made from a combination of five red varietals, including Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, blends from here are unique. For full-bodied versions to share at your next dinner party, choose those from the Médoc.

If you’ve been looking for a robust and tasty red to enjoy on a cold winter evening, visit Martin Brothers Wine & Spirits in New York.
