What can you say about Jorn Nou Petit Tinto? Well, you can say that it’s freaking great to drink! That’s a good start, isn’t it? The nose is awash with sultry scents of warm berry preserves, pipe tobacco, and sweet vanilla. Once you take a quick whiff you’re going to rush right in for a sip. And what a sip it is! The palate is broad and generous with a mouth-coating texture that has a luxurious feel to it. Plump blackberries, black cherries, and blueberry preserves deliver waves of pleasure as the wine touches every nook and cranny of the palate on its way to the long, sleek finish. This is a thoroughly modern Red that was built with pleasure in mind. If your Memorial Day plans include a bit of grilling and chilling then Jorn Nou’s Petit Tinto is the Red wine to serve!

The 2016 Jorn Nou Petit Blanco is a full on show stopper! This White is utterly explosive on the nose and palate. Outstanding layers of honeysuckles, acacia blossoms, and fresh peaches drizzled with warm honey leap out of the glass to greet you on the nose. Seriously folks, this is the sort of nose simply cannot be ignored. And that’s not all. The palate offers up the kind of rich texture that we often associate with oaky Chardonnay but this one’s not oaked because the winery wanted to preserve all that brilliant fruit. Layers of peach and pear define the entry while hints of citrus, guava, and golden raisins deliver seemingly endless pleasure on the finish. This lush White will function perfectly alone as an aperitif but it has the stuffing to stand up to hearty fare like barbeque chicken, cedar plank salmon, or even chicken and cheese enchiladas with green chile.

Penley Estate Gryphon Coonawarra Merlot 2010

Let’s just be upfront about what we have for you this week. It’s Australian Merlot. Ok, for everyone who didn’t quit reading, this is some freaking good juice and it’s a steal at this price. The 2010 Gryphon delivers an exceptional nose of toasty oak, chocolate truffle, cigar box, anise, grilled bread, and sun baked earth. It is the kind of nose that serves as a clear reminder of the power, interest, and style that makes Merlot such an important varietal in the world of fine wine (let’s not forget that Chateau Petrus is composed entirely of Merlot). The palate fulfills the promise that the nose made, offering up a richly textured mouthfeel that is classic Merlot through and through. Roasted plums, black currant preserves, Luxardo cherries, and plenty of that great chocolatey earthy goodness reverberate in between sips leaving you with a surge of lust for a topped up glass and a hearty meal. This 2010 Gryphon Merlot is drinking young for it’s age thanks to a Stelvin closure that really seals out the oxygen during cellaring. It offers this older Merlot a chance to strut its stuff even at 8 years on. If you managed to read this far, then you’re gonna want to swing by the shop tonight to taste this delicious bottle of Red. Stock up on it today and then pull a bottle out anytime you want a beautifully modern example of premium Merlot.
Food Pairing:
This beautiful bottle of Red is well suited to food pairing with its wonderfully rich palate and exuberant nose. The sweet fruit on the entry will play very well with the bitterness that really good grill marks impart on your food. Whether you fancy a big ole dry aged ribeye, bone-in skin-on chicken thighs, or an assortment of the freshest veggies you can find the 2010 Penley Gryphon Merlot ought to be a be fine foil. And, because it’s Merlot, it’s generous enough that you can have a glass all by itself before or after the meal without feeling any of the astringent tannin of Cabernet or sharp acidity of Pinot Noir.
