2016 Berton Vineyard The Black Shiraz
Australia-Limestone Coast

Winemaker’s Notes: The Black Shiraz is a bold example of Australian Shiraz with deep color and aromas of blackberry and plum over toasty vanilla and spicy oak. The palate is full flavored and intense with rich plum, blueberry, and mocha notes. The tannins are ripe and dense giving great structure and length to the palate.

2015 Famille Brechet Plateau Des Chenes Lirac
France-Lirac

Winemaker Notes: Our interpretation of the beautiful soil of LiracFeaturing an intense purple colorthis wine develops powerful black fruit aromas and a slight hint of smoke and spice.

90 Points Robert Parker: The 2015 Lirac Plateau des Chênes is a modern, somewhat oaky example of the appellation, but it does combine wonderfully pure cherry fruit with vanilla and cedar, leaving some woody tannins in its wake. Drink this medium to full-bodied blend of Grenache (75%) and Syrah (25%) over the next 5-8 years.

90 Points Wine Spectator: Offers a fleshy feel, with dark plum and raspberry coulis flavors racing along, lined with subtle graphite and black tea notes. Shows a dusting of cocoa at the very end. Solid. Drink now through 2021.

Retail: $24.99
On Sale Thru 8/8: $20.99
