Katnook Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, Coonawarra, South Australia, Australia: Full-bodied Australian red wine with classic Cabernet aromas of cassis, blackcurrant and blackberry. Surprisingly elegant for a New World cab. Like it lots! This wine is aged for 22 months in French and American oak and offers a toasty finish. Nicely balanced oak with the fruit and character of the wine. Pair with brisket. Highly recommended. Drink: 2014-2018. 590471 13.50% XD 750 mL  $29.95 Score: 93/100.

Cosentino Cigarzin Old Vine Zinfandel 2012, California, United States: Surprisingly low in alcohol for such a full-bodied, full-flavoured Californian zinfandel. Pure delicious! Smoky with fleshy black fruit. Complex zinfandel in all its glory. Yahoo! Old vines truly do make a difference to the complexity and concentration of flavour, especially in zinfandel. Finishes with dark spice, smoke and pepper. Pair with spaghetti and meat balls. Drink: 2013-2018. 269340 14.90% XD 750 mL  $21.95 Score: 93/100. February 7, 2015 Top Rated Red Wine.
