Smooth, complex reds perfect for comfort foods

HESS SELECT CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2014
North Coast, California
025080 (XD) 750 mL $24.95

TASTING NOTE: Hess is a go-to producer for those seeking restrained elegance in value-for-money wine. This showcases a balanced-on-a-pin Sonoma Cab with good structure and persistent purity of fruit at a reasonable price point. Aromas of baking spice and dark cherry/berry fruit translate to a medium bodied, well-textured stream of palate-bathing flavours with black currant and pie cherry interlaced with minty notes and baking spice – nutmeg, cinnamon and traces of ginger. It finishes balanced, long and mouth-watering good.

Score: (out of 5 stars) (Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, May 22, 2017)

Full-bodied & Smooth

 

OTAZU RESERVA CLÁSICO 2009
DO Navarra, Spain
543728 (XD) 750 mL $24.95

TASTING NOTE: Bodega Otazu is situated on a 12th-century feudal estate. The property includes an art gallery and a winery museum as well as a remarkable French-style cellar that dates from 1840. The 2009 Reserva Clásico is silky, with fine tannins and oodles of still-fresh dark fruit. Black pepper spice, tobacco, earth and vanilla round out the complex package. Beginning to show hints of its age, but young at heart yet! (Vintages panel, July 2017)
