A Memorial Day Mixed Case

Memorial Day Weekend has arrived and summer is just around the corner! To celebrate the season, we've put together a mixed case of wines for your holiday BBQ, poolside sipping, and warm weather festivities. Here are twelve bottles to kick back with over the three-day weekend and all summer long, all available on Banquet . SUMMERTIME WHITES As you pull out the summer whites from the bottom of your closet, it's time to stock your cellar with the same color. There's a white wine for every season, but these crisp sips with their zippy citrus flavors and salty bite are perfect for the dog days ahead. Pull out the cooler, and give Soave , Sancerre , and Albariño a shot! ROSÉ ALL DAY All across America, pools are opening their doors this weekend. What better way to sip poolside than with a glass of something pink? No wine screams summer quite like rosé, and few others make it seem so easy to top off an entire bottle. Face it – the color is fun, but the wines are also delightful with their cold berry flavors and subtle herbaceousness. From Provence to California, here are three pink wines to help you rosé all day. BUBBLES GALORE With the weather finally warming up, why not celebrate with something sparkling ? Refreshing and endlessly joyful, you don’t need a special occasion to pop open some fizzy fun. From Champagne to Cava to Prosecco , here are three of our favorite bottles of bubbly. GRILL-READY REDS Hosting a Memorial Day cook-out at your house? You'll need some scrumptious reds to serve alongside those burgers and hot dogs. Whether it be Malbec from Mendoza, Zinfandel from Sonoma, or Syrah from the Northern Rhône, these meaty wines have just the right amount of savoriness to pair well with grilled-fare, without feeling too heavy to enjoy under the hot summer sun.

Offerus Saint-Joseph Syrah 2015

Textbook old world northern Rhône Syrah. Gamey smoked meat, black pepper, herbs, with a backbone of blackberry. Savory on the palate with a fresh finish. — 10 months ago

Chartogne-Taillet

Sainte Anne Brut Champagne Blend

Team drinks at Aldo Sohm's Wine Bar started with the Sainte Anne Brut from Chartogne-Taillet. A sip immediately tunes out the buzz of the bar, such is its utter precision that itself invites focus. Granny Smith apples and a touch of honeysuckle and with a terrific texture, this is a classy Champagne. I'm in for more. — a year ago

26 months on lees and it's rocking that complexity. No dosage. Fun but austere. If you like a little pain and pleasure drink this! @dmselections — 4 years ago

Otto Soave Classico Garganega 2016
