From the writer of Boozehound: at the path of the infrequent, the vague, and the puffed up in Spirits

Alternative Reds is a 130-pages advisor to off-the-beaten-path purple wines that supply a wine lover — even if a beginner or an skilled gourmand who’s caught in a rut — a distinct course into the area of wine. With over one hundred forty options, you will find modesty, idiosyncrasy, authenticity, and daily worth in those substitute reds, and optimistically they'll motivate you to attempt anything new, push past the relief region of the standard pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon, or merlot.
Alternative Reds aren't imprecise wines. fairly, those are wines that stay within the margins of the wine store. maybe they're from a spot with a complicated identify or geography. probably they're made with a little-known grape. maybe they have been as soon as renowned, or had their second, yet have now ceased to be the flavour of the month. or even they’ve regularly been ignored and underrated. those are the wines you could open on a Tuesday evening, and bit by bit, bottle through bottle, they're going to pay off you with amusement and data — no matter if that wisdom is just what to appear for (or avoid!) subsequent time on the wine shop.
