I am rounding out a week of organic wines with a new release from Marquee Selections. Their 2009 Organic Shiraz/Cabernet is a single vineyard wine grown in South Australia. The region is hot and the climate definitely shines through in this blend that features an abundance of ripe, dark fruit.
The wine is a blend of 55% Shiraz and 45% Cabernet. The warm nose has aromas of sweet tobacco, berries, and spice. The palate is smooth and slightly jammy with tastes of dark berries, black cherries, and tobacco. The fruitiness is followed by a slightly spicy finish. This blend isn’t complex, but it is a solid, easy sipper that is well-priced at just under $15. A great mid-week wine! (B, $14.99, 13.5% alcohol)
Food Pairing Suggestions- Pair this wine with a sausage pizza, a grilled sirloin, or pork chop
