2012 Charles Smith Syrah
Robert Parker describes Charles Smith as “larger than life, an innovator, outspoken, you name it … but above all the man is a brilliant winemaker who knows where all the best fruit is hidden.” Judges say this syrah is peppery, savoury, fragrant and lifted crisp finish. We say it is wonderfully smooth, dark and rich, a will really hit the spot with BBQ ribs, a juicy steak or hearty vegetarian dishes.
2012 Alma Andina Malbec Reserve $9.99
All you need is one sip to see why this Argentinean Malbec is named Alma Andina, which translates to ‘soul of the Andes.’ The latest release of master Steve McEwen is crafted with only premium fruit from some of the world’s highest vineyards, in Mendoza’s Uco Valley. In the glass you’ll find concentrated red and black fruit flavors. Layers of smoky spice and warm vanilla wrap the concentrated core, thanks to six months’ aging in fine French and American oak. Alma Andina is the essential partner for a juicy steak or roast beef.
