Quara Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Snow is in the forecast again at long last! So you need to rush over to the shop this evening and stock up on some killer Cabernet in order to be sure that you’ve got plenty of yummy red on your wine rack for the weekend. Quara’s 91 Point 2014 Special Seclection Cabernet is evidence of the maturation of the South American wine industry. This juicy red bursts with character and style. The nose is thoroughly layered and engaging with pronounced scents of brandied cherries, tar, smoke, vanilla, and grilled herbs. One sniff will surely get your mouth watering as you anticipate that first sip! And what a good sip it is! Bright and juicy on the palate, the 2014 Quara Cab offers up plenty of macerated strawberry, crushed cherry, and black currant. Unlike a lot of South American Malbec that we taste (which is all too often corpulent and one dimensional), the Quara Cabernet actually finishes with some lift which makes it seem thoroughly food friendly. It would make a great burger wine and would be even better with a big old platter full of marinated grilled fresh veggies. Either way, this stuff is solid and totally underpriced. Git some!
Food Pairing:
I know it’s a little early for farmer’s market veggies but there’s some pretty good stuff hitting the store shelves already and it’s got me thinking about how much I love a big vegetarian mixed grill. Planks of squash and zucchini, fresh artichoke hearts lightly steamed, nice thin asparagus spears, some sweet Vidalia onions, and maybe even some big hunks of cauliflower or broccoli all marinated in soy, bbq dry rub, and some grapeseed oil just sounds like a perfect way to kick back on Saturday night while the snow falls and the fire crackles.

El Miracle 2013
Regular Price: $13.99
Sale Price: $7.99 or 6.99 by the case (12 bottles)
Sale End: 4/2/2017
Score: 90 Points Robert Parker

You don’t go naming a wine “El Miracle” unless it’s pretty dog gone good, right? This 90 Point Spanish stunner is delicious and, if you swing by the shop this weekend, you’ll be able to score enough to keep your wine rack full all through the Spring for less than seven bucks a bottle! It’s made from a grape called Garnacha Tintorera which is famous for actually having red juice (most red grapes have white juice and the color comes from the juice being in contact with the skins after they’re crushed). This appealing example is Spanish through and through. It begins with an attractive nose of ripe red berries, cedar, and thyme. Then, on the palate, it is medium bodied and generous with plenty black currant and red cherries as well as a hint of iron rich earth on the dry, slightly rustic finish. This is a fun one, folks. Buy a case and throw a big “Welcome to Spring” Spanish tapas party. We think you’re going to be shocked by the quality you get for such a modest price!
Food Pairing:
Despite the 2013 El Miracle being a fairly generous example of Garnacha Tintorera (they can get pretty meaty and aggressive) I think you’ll still want to pair it up with a good, hearty meal. How about a big ole bone-in grilled pork chop accompanied by a generous helping of cuban beans and some double fried plantains?

Then you can drizzle the whole plate with one of my favorite easy sauces. Bloom some guajillo chili powder in just enough boiling water to get it hydrated. Mix in an equal amount of fresh squeezed lime juice until you’ve got a nice thin paste. Add that mixture to some store bought ranch dressing in a ratio of 2 or 3 parts ranch to 1 part guajillo lime and stir it until it’s homogeneous. It’s a killer sauce that takes less than 5 minutes to throw together.
