    An Aussie fruit bomb, eh? I'm always down for those. Hearty meats, like smoked ribs, typically works well there.

    I love d'Arenburg. I am drinking (as a special treat) a beautiful bottle of this wine's big brother, a 2005 "The Dead Arm", as I write this post. The same year of "The Laughing Magpie" (about $25) is an excellent choice as well.

    I also highly recommend a 2005 Byron Chardonnay that is selling for around $18 at the Costco here in Las Vegas. We have loved the 2 bottles we've had so far. It carries a 93 point rating to which it certainly seems to live up.

    The Costco in Burbank (and perhaps other SoCal locations) is selling 2006 d'Arenberg The Laughing Magpie for $18.99. That's a very good price on a 92 point wine that is very drinkable now if left open for about 1/2 hour.

    Just finishing a bottle of 2005 Peter Lehmann Barossa Shiraz. WS gave it 91 points and rated it a Best Buy. Costco is selling this wine for $12.99 so I gave it a try - and it has been a very pleasant surprise.

    Uncorked one of these last night:



    Our first time tried, and won't be the last. A blend of 50% Merlot; 49% Cabernet Sauvignon; and 1% Cabernet Franc. This is a KILLER bottle---and a steal for 35 bucks. Perfect balance, wonderful concentration and complexity, soft velvety tannins, and loooong on the finish. Was heaven with thick, char-grilled Prime dry-aged rib-eyes smeared with gobs of sweet roasted garlic.

    i had this with dinner last night finally. it had berry flavors with a completely different, hard to describe aftertaste that in combination made it a very strongly flavored wine. i didn't mind it so much but mr. box did not like. i get the rest of the bottle to myself. heh.
