Sip of the Week

Catherine Rabb

2011 Schild Estate Shiraz, Barossa Valley, Australia

$21.99 at The Fresh Market.

This is a lovely winter wine, full of rich, black fruit and spice flavors, with hints of smoke, spice and mocha. With this much character, it's got the oomph to stand up to something hearty and slow-simmered, but to be honest, it was pretty popular at my house before dinner was on the table. Cool label as well, emphasizing the growers’ relationship to the earth.
