California red dry wines have long been leaders on the world market. New World wines are a worthy competitor to their European counterparts. A great variety of terroirs simply cannot but influence the quality of wines. They are produced from the famous Zinfandel, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with notes of ripe forest berries, wild juniper, holly, citrus, vanilla, pepper, bread, caramel, cloves and chocolate. The drinks are perfectly matched with steaks, flavorful grilled ribs with savory sauces, game and mature cheeses.
