Sam's Club Adds New Spanish Red Wine From Torres Winery

Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon Blend Pairs Well with Winter and Spring Dishes

BENTONVILLE, Ark., February 25 —Sam’s Club expands its wine offerings this month with the introduction of Infinite, a 2008 Spanish red wine. The traditional Tempranillo variety is the basis of Infinite, complemented by a small proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon. Infinite will join several other proprietary control label wines also known as private label to meet the increasing demand for entertaining solutions in meals and beverage categories at Sam’s Club.

Infinite possesses a deep, dark cherry color and the seductive aromas of red fruits—blackberries and blueberries—alongside bold spices. Flavors are consistent with the nose, offering a hip flavor profile with smooth, silky fruit on the palate, and soft tannins that evolve into a pleasant finish.

"Infinite is a great example of excellence in Spanish red wine. The thought and care that went into the making of this limited release wine is exceptional, and we are proud to be introducing it for under $10," said Mark Kenny, Director Wine, Beer and Spirits at Sam's Club.

The Spanish winery Bodegas Torres produces Infinite and is the first winery to make The Drinks Business’ “Green List.” In this prestigious ranking, only 50 entities throughout the world are recognized for their contribution and commitment to sustainability. Torres was named for its efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, as well as environmental awareness campaigns aimed at consumers in the more than 140 countries that import Torres wine.

The perfect accompaniment for typical traditional dishes from legumes to rice plates with meat and vegetables, Infinite pairs well with the following including braised pork and pasta con carne with wine and herb braised beef.

Infinite will sell for about $8 a bottle in more than 400 Sam’s Club locations that are authorized to offer wine. Membership is not required to purchase alcohol on location.
