Red Wine

The Stump Jump D'arenberg Wines Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2009, Mclaren Vale, Australia: Mouth-watering acidity with tart, wake-up-your-mouth cherries and blackberries. Full-bodied and smooth. Great price. Drink: 2009-2013. 173294 14.40% XD 750 mL  $13.95 Score: 87/100. July 6, 2011 Full Review

Rosés

Fat Cat Cat Amongst The Pigeons, Rosedale Wines Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé 2008, Barossa Valley, South Australia, Australia: Vintages Wine Panel: Deep ruby in the glass with big, rich aromas of bumbleberry pie, chocolate, Indian tea and black cherry. Dry and full bodied, this blend of 55% Shiraz and 45% Cab with its opulent dark fruit and chocolate notes is certainly not shy. A good seam of acidity keeps everything in check. Cellar 2-4 years or enjoy tonight. My note: Big and fleshy with blueberries and blackberries in a jumble of hedonistic happiness. Full-bodied and smooth. Pair it with catnip. 222042 14.60% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 89/100. July 6, 2011 Full Review
