Louise Wilson Errazuriz Max Reserva Carmenère

Why This Wine: Roast lamb is a bold dish and requires an equally rich and well-structured wine. The juicy plum, black cherry and fresh herb notes of this wine support the smokey flavor of the meat, especially with crushed garlic, chopped rosemary and fresh mint.

Terry St. Hallett Gamekeeper's Shiraz

Why This Wine: This delicious, warm weather, unoaked, Shiraz-Grenache blend with complex aromas isn't normally found in this price range ($17.95). Nicely balanced ripe raspberries, dark fruits, gaminess and soft tannins, with some vanilla and spice to match meaty dishes such as grilled lamb chops.

Carla Kacaba Vineyards Meritage

Why This Wine: This full-bodied red blend has a compelling deep ruby colour and the dark berries hold solid on the palate. It makes a great parallel match for lamb as there's an underlying savouriness that supports the spices and gamey flavours of the meat.

Peter Ravenswood Vinter's Blend Zinfandel

Why This Wine: This was my first zinfandel that I tried years ago and I still love it. Full-flavored, with deep purple plum and jam flavours. It goes well with red meat, especially BBQ or roasted lamb. It's full-bodied and delicious, but not heavy.
