Let's unpack this case!
Tour des Gendres Bergerac Rouge
Tour des Gendres Rouge is like a pair of well-worn blue jeans—reliable, comfortable, and always appropriate. In the southwestern French region of Bergerac (east of Bordeaux), Malbec and Merlot are as natural a pair as spun cotton and indigo. So slip into your favorite Dungarees while you enjoy the classic cassis pleasure and cherry perfume of this savory sleeper.
Dandelion Vineyards 'Lionheart of the Barossa' Shiraz
We may snicker at Australian clichés, but who can deny that BBQ shrimp is delicious? And so is Syrah grown in Australia! Say what you will about calling it ‘Shiraz.’ The fact is, this wine is produced from a single vineyard of 100 year old vines, aged for 18 months in French oak, and is absolutely brimming with perfect dark plum, blackberry, and spicy pepper characteristics.
Château du Cèdre Cahors
Drinking Malbec from Argentina is like eating deep dish pizza. It’s fine, we’re not the pizza police, but we all know it’s a casserole and not pizza! Anyway, the point is that Malbec comes from Southwest France, and if you’re interested in having the real deal Neapolitan version you must head to Cahors, where you can find such charms as the strikingly layered, bold and beautiful, Cahors from Château du Cèdre.
Domaine Santa Duc Côtes du Rhône Les Quatres Terres
Now that Côtes du Rhône has become a household name for American wine drinkers we’d like to point out that not all wines are created equal in this enchanted region, and that Les Quatres Terres from Domaine Santa Duc is like the Valyrian steel of the lot. With six generations under their belt and a Demeter biodynamic certification on their estate, the Gras family’s Côtes du Rhône is a red cherry, licorice dream of a wine that’s fit for a king.
Ricca Terra Nero d'Avola
One sniff of the glass is a Mediterranean breeze; a sweet whiff of wild oregano and fennel, with red cherry fruits like a warm Sicilian summer night...only this Nero d’Avola wasn’t grown in Sicily as you would expect...it’s the beautiful creation of Ashley Ratcliff who’s raison d'être is finding the best suited grape varieties to his South Australian home of Riverland. Deep, rich, and aromatic—Nero d’Avola is right at home, here in Australia!
Gilles Robin Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Papillon
If you know, you know: thighs are the best part of the bird, mayonnaise is the best French fry condiment, and Northern Rhône Syrah is among the best red wines from France. Violets, leather, black pepper and dark cherries...supple tannins and ever so food friendly acidity...it doesn’t get much better than that, and the organically produced Papillon from Giles Robin fits the bill. Ketchup eaters need not apply!
