Smooth sips for winter suppers


of the



Clare Valley, South Australia

744235 (XD)

750 mL $19.95


TASTING NOTE: Sweet berries punctuated by

delectable tang. Smooth yet lively, with suggestions

of blueberry, strawberry, vanilla and mint. Attractively

priced for the quality. A fine, silky cabernet from

cool-climate Clare Valley that’s fit for grilled-steak

season, or for cellaring up to five more years. Food

Pairing: Grilled steak. Score:

Domaine Lafage Cayrol Vieilles Vignes

Carignan 2014

IGP Côtes Catalanes, Roussillon, France

494039 (XD)

750 mL $19.95


TASTING NOTE: The 2014 IGP Cotes Catalanes

Cayrol Carignan Vieilles Vignes comes from the

black schist soils of the Agly valley (mostly from

around Maury) and 100-year-old vines. Seeing a

slightly longer elevage than the Tessellae cuvee and

spending 14 months all in demi-muids, it gives

up lots of spice and sandalwood characteristics, as

well as more black cherry liqueur, chocolate and

dusty, rock-like minerality. Hedonistic, textured,

rounded and downright sexy, it’s another terrific

wine from this estate that readers should snatch up.

It should dish out tons of pleasure over the coming

4-5 years. Drink Date: 2016-2021. Score:
