This week’s WOW is a 91 Point, Wine Spectator Top 100, juicy and spicy Shiraz from Australia’s Central Victoria. Blended with a little Viognier to lift aromatics and create depth, structure, and balance. A beautiful collaboration between two renowned wine families, Michel Chapoultier from France’s Rhone Valley and Napa Valley wine authority and vintner Anthony Terlato.

91 Points AND Top 100, Wine Spectator: “Fresh and expressive, medium-weight but vivid, with black cherry and floral notes, balanced by a stony minerality that glides into the long finish against fine tannins. Drink now through 2020.”
This wine is delicious on its own and great when paired with roasted meats, hardy stews and aged cheeses. Perfect for holiday entertaining!
