JASPER HILL GEORGIA’S PADDOCK SHIRAZ 2015
Region: Heathcote, Victoria
“Fragrant notes of dried rose petal and white truffle indicate something special. Inside, this offers a fleshy, velvety mix of toasted rye bread, spicy plum jam and framboise flavors. Elegant and plush, but with plenty of power within, flexing on the expressive, expansive finish that goes on and on.”
– MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator (Apr, 2018)

PENLEY ESTATE PHOENIX CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2016
Region: Coonawarra, South Australia
“Dense, with sink-your-teeth-into-them tannins and concentration to the plum, cassis and blackberry flavors. Sage and rosemary accents linger in the background. Strikes the right note between power and elegance, with grace notes of eucalyptus, black tea and tobacco lingering on the velvety finish.”
– MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator (Jun, 2018)
95 pts / Highly Recommended
LEEUWIN ESTATE ART SERIES CHARDONNAY 2015
Region: Margaret River, Western Australia
“Supple and creamy up front, with precision to the nutmeg, lemon curd, verbena and mandarin orange flavors, which are intense and harmonious, the elegant body and lingering accents of ginger and citrus zest elevating this white to something special.”
– MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator (Nov, 2018)
