Mutt Lynch “Man’s Best Friend” MBF Petite Sirah 2016
If you're not familiar with Petite Sirah, there is nothing petite (small) about it. The grape produces rich, complex and age-worthy wines that are dense in character and color. The 2013 Reserve “mbf” Petite Sirah exhibits these qualities. Produced from the Perotti Vineyard in Dry Creek Valley, this wine exhibits flavors of dark plums, dried herbs, licorice and pepper spice. Delicious!

Molly Dooker “The Boxer” Shiraz 2017$38.00
Complex and expressive, the 2017 Boxer exudes vivacity while maintaining great length. Bright maraschino cherry, fresh plum, rich dark chocolate and liquorice max out the flavour spectrum. The tannins are fine, the fruit is soft and the flavors tickle the taste buds. Consistently impressive and seriously good, this wine is not short of character. Bold, powerful, full body texture. Intense fruity flavors of ripe blackberry, plum, elderberry and dark bitter chocolate with intermittent tastes of clove. Fresh acidity, firm well integrated tannins and an explosive fruity finish. WOW, WOW a Shiraz that gives a whole new meaning to the term BIG and POWERFUL wine. The bold flavors are a perfect complement for the salt in stir fry soy sauce. Clearly not California sweet and clearly not from the Rhone Valley, but there was lots of BRIGHT sun on these Australian grapes and it’s POTENT fruit and IMPETUOUS taste really identifies its origin…there is nothing else quite like it!!! A vibrant Australian Shiraz that is a fantastic bargain!
