Hands down this week is a fine selection from down under:
Warburn Riverina Estate Cab Merlot 2001, New South Wales
Big red, rather complex & slightly oaky, with ample fruit and touch of spice. Pair with filet mignon roast, grilled strip steaks or culotte, Santa Maria tri-tip, lamb sirloin in port reduction, liguini Arabbiata, or tangy blue veined cheeses. Splurge & enjoy, you only go around once.
FYI, bought my cases at Edinger & Springdale store in Huntington Beach.
