    Saturated ruby. Graphite, cherry, dark chocolate and vanilla on the nose, with a sexy floral quality coming up with air. On the palate, the wine’s sweet red and dark fruit flavors are at once juicy, precise and seamless. The cherry and floral notes echo on the very sweet finish. This is delicious now. (Sept/Oct 2010)

    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 – Pares Balta Mas Elena 2007

    September 21, 2011 12:15 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!
