Two complex, expressive, distinct styles
WINES OF SUBSTANCE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2015
419770 (XD) 750 mL $23.95
TASTING NOTE: One of the best values I’ve tasted in a long time, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from the team at K Vintners was hand-harvested, natively fermented and aged all in French oak. Smoking good notes of cassis, black currants and hints of plum all emerge from this rich, beautifully textured, layered beauty that has solid tannic grip, a silky, elegant texture and a great finish. It has real elegance and finesse and is a dark fruited, unctuous beauty to drink over the coming 3-4 years. Drink date: 2017-2021.

Full-bodied & Firm
MIRAVAL ROSÉ 2017
AP Côtes de Provence, France
342584 (XD) 750 mL $23.95
TASTING NOTE: A blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah and Rolle grown in a clay-and-limestone vineyard at 365 metres above sea level in southern France, this wine expresses gorgeous spring flowers, peach, apricot, cantaloupe, cherry and strawberry. It’s sleek, bright and elegant with substantial mouthfeel and a zesty orange-peel finish. Drink now through 2020 with poached salmon, crab salad, or chicken breast in a light cream sauce.
