Glorioso Rioja Riserva 2009 - $22.99
Always a great winter drop, this particular Rioja is full of spice and warming vanilla. Cherry and vanilla flavours mark this out as a somewhat old-school style, with a juicy, spicy finish and a dry, woody vanilla character.
Taster: James Button 89 points, Decanter
Haraszthy Old Vine Zinfandel - $19.99
Haraszthy Family Cellars Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel is a delicious medium-bodied wine exhibiting blackberry, raspberry and cherry aromas & flavors. The harvest was very even-ripening which is not typical of Zinfandel. The wine has a very slight, smoky aroma that integrates beautifully with the delicious roundness of the fruit. There is a hint of cinnamon, sweet plum and a nicely balanced acidity in the lingering finish. Grapes were harvested beginning in late August and ending in late September. 92 POINTS Tastings.com
