Louise Wilson Errazuriz Single Vineyard, Max Reserva Estates Carmenère 2009

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 Grenache 2010

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.
