Red Vermouth

A couple of red vermouths scored big in the latest issue of The Wine Enthusiast

Atxa Vino Vermouth Rojo...$17.99
Look for a deep ruddy hue. The rich aroma evokes cocoa, walnut and dried fig. The complex palate shows dried cherry and cranberry, finishing slightly sweet with a brush of dusty cocoa and licorice. Ideal for enhancing a Manhattan
Rated 94/100 Wine Enthusiast

Berto Vermouth Ross da Travaj (Red Vermouth)...$14.99 liter
The bracing, mentholated aroma and lightly bitter palate makes this sweet vermouth reminiscent of some amaros. Allspice and clove lead into a long, complex finish tinged with dried fig, walnut and espresso, perked up with an orange peel note. Sip with a curl of orange peel.
