Alkoomi Cabernet Sauvignon Frankland River 2014

Alkoomi Cabernet Sauvignon Frankland River 2014

Frankland River, Western Australia

$27.99 / each

Description:

This classy, cool-climate Cabernet Sauvignon hails from Frankland River in Western Australia and really defies the stereotype that has come to define Australian wines. This was made with a delicate hand, favoring elegance, restraint and freshness over power, extraction or a heavy-handed use of oak. Zesty black currant fruit, earthy cedar notes, and velvety tannins dominate the palate here which shows perfectly integrated oak (mostly neutral barrel).

Banshee Mordecai 2014

California

$27.99 / each

Description:

Mordecai is a kitchen-sink style proprietary red blend comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel, Merlot, Carignan, Cabernet Franc and Cinsault. Made as an homage to Wes Anderson's The Royal Tenenbaums, this is juicy, ripe and extremely well balanced, showing luscious roasted plum fruit, bright red cherries, and warm notes of clove and allspice. Aged for 15 months in French oak, this is plush and generous while still maintaining a marked lightness.
