2013 Cabernet Merlot (Woodlands)

Woodlands, Cabernet Merlot, (Wilyabrup Valley) Margaret River, Australia 2013

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 10% Malbec, 2%Petit Verdot

CASSIS & GRACEFUL FRENCH OAK, BEAUTIFULLY STRUCTURED

While Southeastern Australia, where most Aussie wines hail from, is a Shiraz dominated land, Western Australia's magnificent Margaret River is one world's great regions for Bordeaux-inspired reds. This one is balanced and complex, firm in structure yet bright in fruit, while fourteen months in fine French oak gives this rich red wonderful accents of vanilla.  A great compromise between lush California Cabernet and a finely structured French one. Meticulous in quality since 1973, Woodlands examines and approves every individual grape on a sorting table before it earns a spot in this wine.

Serving Suggestion: Meat & potatoes - in an elevated style. Delmonico steak grilled over charcoal with pommes aligot (French way of saying potatoes w/ tons of cheese) & creamy greens.

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon "Third Generation" (Nugan Estate)

Nugan Estate, Cabernet Sauvignon "Third Generation", Riverina, Australia, 2013

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

SPICY, BLACK CHERRY, OAK & A WISP OF MINT

This is a delicious and amazingly balanced Cabernet showing fleshy currant, dried black cherry fruit, sandalwood, modest tannins and an elegant finish with a wisp of mint. The vanilla oak adds a third dimension, but is appropriately restrained so as not to hide the fresh fruit and earthy tones.

Serving Suggestion: Roast beef sandwiches dipped au jus; beef stew with carrots, potatoes and bay leaf or just for drinking on its own.

2014 Chardonnay (Woodlands)

Woodlands, Chardonnay, Wilyabrup Valley, Margaret River, Western Australia, Australia 2014

BAKED LEMON BARS, SUBTLE CREAM, UNDERSTATED OAK

Australia gets a really bad rap these days. Even the most open-minded oenophiles think of the continent as the home of supermarket plonk with critters on the label, and overblown, overpriced reds. Let Western Australia change your mind. 100% barrel fermented but free of malolactic fermentation and only partially barrel aged, this bright Chardonnay has the most beautiful, subtle touch of oak. It is miles away in both distance and style from what you might be used to. 

Serving Suggestion: Classic dover sole with lemon, parsley and brown butter. Pappardelle with fresh garden peas in a light cream sauce, lemon zest, and mint.

2010 Proprietary Red (Shiraz/Petite Sirah) (Imprimata)

Imprimata, Proprietary Red (Shiraz/Petite Sirah), McLaren Vale, Australia 2010

80% Shiraz, 20% Petite Sirah

FLOATY VIOLET, MULBERRY COMPOTE, BLACK OLIVE & SPICE

The Latin “Imprimatur” translates to “let it be released”: essentially an endorsement, except with some added gravitas. This red blend serves as the “imprimatur” declaration of the winemakers' reverence for and confidence in their land and vines. Petite Sirah adds an extra layer of powerful concentration to the sizable Shiraz, but subtlety and dreamy floral notes remain strong. This has universal appeal, especially for hardcore Aussie fans who may have overdosed on tongue-bruising Barossa Shiraz.

Serving Suggestions: Herb-doused lamb, spitted over an open fire. Any red-blooded Australian should be able to set this up for you.

2014 Riesling (Xabregas)

Xabregas Estate, Mount Barker, Western Australia 2014

100% Riesling

CLEAN AND DRY, LIMEY FRESH, BRIGHT AND QUENCHING

Australian Riesling is one of the under-the-radar delicacies of the wine world. Typically bone-dry, they are elegant, understated whites from a country known for heavy, jammy reds. Part of why we don't see enough of these stateside is that, like great dry German Riesling, most of the best stuff is happily guzzled before it can leave the country.  Luckily for us this great bottle made all the way here from the southernmost tip of Western Australia. With fresh lemon oil and orange zest on the nose and lush, medium bodied richness on the palate, it's so balanced in acidity that it feels almost weightless.  Complex but quaffable.

Serving Suggestion: A holiday ham feast w/ all your favorite sides.  Bahn Mi w/ ginger marinated tofu & plenty of cilantro.

2013 Shiraz "Alfredo - Second Pass" (Nugan Estate)

Nugan Estate, Shiraz "Alfredo - Second Pass" Riverina, Australia, 2013

100% Shiraz

FRESH BERRIES, RAISINS, CLAY; BIG, BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL

It takes a special kind of crazy to take an Australian Shiraz and say "this isn't bold enough," then use an Italian method of adding wine grape raisins to a wine to boost its body, flavor and aroma (Ripasso, or re-pass - hence "second pass"). Lucky for us, the Nugan winemakers are that kind of crazy. Rich and powerful and complex, with aromas of fresh blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries, raisins, accentuated with vanilla, chocolate, and spice, and hints of freshly dug red clay - all supported by velvety smooth tannins. Shiraz dreams of going to heaven and becoming a wine this amazing.. 

Serving Suggestion: Slow-cooked, spice-rubbed beef w/ ginger, parsley & carrot mash. Grilled leg of lamb w/ horseradish gremolata and roasted potatoes, beets, and onions. Kangaroo burgers with smoky blue cheese and sweet potato fries.

2014 Shiraz "The Winner's Tank" (Eskadale Vineyards)

Eskadale Vineyards, "The Winner's Tank" Shiraz, Langhorne Creek, Australia 2014

100% Shiraz

BOLD, BERRY PRESERVES, SMOKE, LUSH, FAT & RUSTIC

In true Aussie spirit, a strong rivalry exists between the three neighboring towns in the local Australian Rules Football competition. Each year the winning team heads out to the vineyard to paint the tank in their team colors. Brief aging in French oak adds dimension, but the brevity means no real oakiness to be found. This is pure fruit driven Shiraz. So ripe, it might squirt juice if you squeeze the bottle too much. Glass staining purple-ness, strawberry and raspberry fruit, black licorice and freshness abound.

Serving Suggestion: Try this one with lamb chops marinated in rosemary and juniper berry or venison stew; Louisiana red beans and rice with Andouille.

2014 Shiraz "Third Generation" (Nugan Estate)

Nugan Estate, Shiraz "Third Generation," Riverina, Australia, 2014

100% Shiraz

REMARKABLY BALANCED, OAKED JAMMY FRUIT

Nugan is among the the few wineries that produces well-balanced and refined Shiraz made in a sincere and non-manipulated manner while remaining in the "daily" category! Dive into spiced berry, restrained jelly flavors and black cherry jubilee. The black pepper and vanilla oak serve as a "pie crust" for the wine's fruit. This is typical of Shiraz, but made in a beautifully well integrated manner. Forget the sweet, fruity, cheap stuff. Will the real Shiraz please stand up? And here it is... Nugan Estate's "Third Generation".

Serving Suggestion: Bleu cheese burger; braised short ribs with star anise, onions, clove and rosemary
