September 1, 2023
Jeff Rundquist 1448 Red – USA
A full and voluptuous wine made from Petit Sirah and Petit Verdot. Black-fruit bramble is balanced with more delicate nuanced notes like lavender, vanilla and baking spice.
Pair this wine with bold-flavourful dishes like steak, BBQed ribs and pulled pork4
Castorani Cadetto Montepulciano d’Abruzzo – Italy
Lots of clean, fresh black-fruit character to this wine. Medium bodied with slightly chewy tannins but the fruit persists through the finish.
Pair this wine with pepperoni pizza or grilled-red meats.
Finca La Esquina Cabernet Sauvignon – Argentina
This is a cabernet with currants, blackberries and fresh mint aromas that follow through to a medium body, a solid core of fruit and a juicy finish. 91 Points, James Suckling
Pair this wine with red meats, root vegetables and pasta.
Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon – USA
A ripe and full-flavored benchmark Paso Robles California Cabernet, full of rich blackberry, cassis and herb aromas. The palate has vanilla, black fruits with hints of spice and cedar.
Pair this wine with a full-flavoured roast leg of lamb.
Barossa Valley Estate Shiraz – Australia
Black fruits, cherries and licorice on the nose and palate, with light-herbal notes and light-black pepper in this medium-bodied, dry red wine. Well-balanced and drinking nicely now.
Pair this wine with prime rib roast, BBQed short ribs and grilled vegetables.
Rancho Alexander Pinot Noir – USA
Savory red-berry fruit flavours doubled up with red cherry and strawberry aromas, balanced by a long acidity and tannins, make this a versatile food pairing wine. Also great on its own.
Pair this wine with grilled salmon, tomato-based pasta and pizza dishes.
