WINE OF THE MONTH- JANUARY

Here’s a wine that shows generous complexity at a bargain value year after year. The 2007 vintage was featured as the #77 Wine of the Year for 2010 by Wine Spectator, and the 2008 has just begun to hit the markets with pretty wide availability. Australian wines often fall victim to criticism for their ripe, fruit-forward style, but this blend shows complexity, finesse, and expresses its terroir well for this region.

PETER LEHMANN CLANCY’S BAROSSA VALLEY 2007, 90 Points, $15, 8000 Cases Produced- A spicy blend, with tobacco, cigar box, cedar and pepper notes mingling with dark raspberry and black cherry fruit. Tightly wrapped and concise, lingering long with and element of vanilla bean beneath the earthy spice.
