Wine Of The Week – Grant Burge Barossa Vines Shiraz 2009

January 4, 2012 1:17 pm - Posted by Jody in Drink

Grant Burge Barossa Vines Shiraz 2009Barossa, Australia

VARIETALS: 100% Syrah

TASTING NOTE:

Fifth-generation winemaker Grant Burge is a master of Shiraz. The 2009 is classic Burge Barossa with layers of blackberry, plum and black cherry with smoky cloves and dark chocolate. Dry and delectably mouthfilling, with impressive tannins and a ripe fruit core. Enjoy tonight with spaghetti and meatballs in a spicy BBQ sauce.

Wine Of The Week – Catena Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

August 24, 2011 12:56 pm - Posted by Jody in Drink

Each week I like to choose a new wine to introduce to our fans. These wines vary by region, by varietal and even by price. I don’t think cost and value are necessarily related. So I like to focus on wines I have experienced on my travels and I think our fans will enjoy trying. salut!

PRESS:

This is solid, with dense but polished structure holding the weighty core of plum, fig paste and black currant preserves together. The dark, lengthy finish lets a nice Kenya AA coffee note chime in. Drink now through 2013.
