What To Drink This Weekend: Shiraz Château Reynella “Basket Pressed” 2003
The McLaren Vale in South Australia is known for epic shiraz of tremendous richness and depth. Wines like this classic from Chateau Reynella (Chairman’s selection, $14.99) are dense with flavor, with an inky purple color that will stain your teeth blue. This gorgeous example of the McLaren Vale style burst with blueberry pie and blackberry jam flavors. A layer of caramel-ly oak adds a grace note of warming spice, and at this price, there’s no better way to shake off the November chill.
