    Bleasdale Bremerview Shiraz 2005
    Sold Out
    2010 vintage available for $19.99
    Opened in January 2010 - a very nice shiraz. I decanted this wine for an hour, and was rewarded with a pleasant nose that reminded me of wet moss (in a pleasant and fresh way). On the palate I found deep fruit (berries), slightly tart - but I expect that will round out if cellared for a year or so. A bit of earthy spice, full bodied, very nice. Paired well with sharp cheese and drinks well on its own. I've ordered more for my cellar.

    d'Arenberg Stump Jump Shiraz 2008
    Sold Out
    2011 vintage available for $12.99
    • red wine
    • screw cap wine
    • Green wine
    • WS90
    Robust nose - earthy fruit tones jump out of the glass. On the palate, the fruit comes forward but the earth tones carry through in the background, with a hint of spice. Tart berries on the finish (which is short but fresh). Overall I find this to be a big, bold and balanced - a very nice Shiraz. I'm weeping in my glass as I write, as the vintage is no longer available - I wish I had bought more.

    Robert Mondavi Fume Blanc 2007
    Sold Out
    2013 vintage available for $18.99
    Very nice California Sav. Blanc.; light oak on the nose; bright, crisp fruit on the palate; gentle tartness on the finish. Perfect as a pre-dinner wine; also paired well with asian fusion food (in my case, avacado, wasabi and raw tuna). I usually prefer New Zealand Sav. Blanc for the more subdued fruit and enhanced mineral tones that those wines typically have (lacking here) - but this is a great expression of California-style Sav. Blanc, well worth the price.

Mike - thanks for all the good suggestions on Shiraz - have you tried the 07 Rolling? How would you rate it?
