Stemmari Syrah, Sicily Italy  (suggested retail $9.99)  This 100% Syrah is of middle eastern origins that is expressed at its best from the terrain of Sicily, thanks to the intense sunlight and uniqueness of the soil.  It is an average to late varietal reaching maturity around the end of September.  10 months of aging in French barriques results in a  wine that is warm and persuasive, with spicy notes of black pepper and thyme based on notes of wild fruit.

Pair with meats, fish and cheeses or roasted fowl.

Gran Vinaio Red Grenache, Montsant Spain (suggested retail $12.99)  Deep concentrated fruit shows through with black opal and brick red at the core and throughout. The nose offers bright red fruit layered with white pepper and herbaceous anise.
