Lonely Grape TV # 147 Oenotria Vintners 2011 Cabernet

Who said you could not make a good Cabernet in 2011?  This one was so well looked after that the winemaker basically slept with the wine during vintage.

Lonely Grape TV#146 Wistmosa 2011 Shiraz

A new name on the McLaren Vale wine scene and based on this effort they will be around for quite a while.  This wine made the cut for the Scarce Earth Project Shiraz and is one of my favorites.
