DOUBLE DEALS FROM DOWN UNDER

What's better than a closeout deal? How about TWO closeout deals? As you may already know, we get closeout deals presented to us on a regular basis. Although the deep discounts can be very enticing, the wines still have to pass muster in order for us to strike a deal. There is a lot of wine out there that needs a home, but most of them just aren't good enough to make it to our shelves. Recently, however, we discovered two great closeouts from Down Under.

The first of the two is the 2008 Leeuwin Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon. This is one of Western Australia's iconic reds, and it's a steal at over 40% off! It exhibits notes of black cherry and black currant mixed with wild herbs and spice. As you can see, the critics were all in agreement across the board (IWC 92, WA 91+, & WS 90). This elegant Cabernet is drinking pretty well at six-years-old, but as you Margaret River fans know, this can easily cellar for another decade (or more).

The other great closeout deal in today's offer is a "sticky" (an Aussie slang for dessert wines). The 2010 d'Arenberg "The Noble Wrinkled" Riesling (375ML) is half off from its original release price. It boasts ripe pear and honey with a little hint of spice. There's plenty of bang for your buck with this 92 pointer from Wine Spectator, and it's a great way to end a meal!

In addition, we've attached some of the other closeout offers that have been featured in the past. Many of these are winding down to the last few cases. As you know with closeout deals, once they're gone . . . they're gone. Good hunting, mate.

Josh Raynolds writes in International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Lively and precise on the nose, displaying scents of red- and blackcurrant, cherry, tobacco and rose. Juicy and tightly focused, with very good depth and energy to its red fruit and spicecake flavors. Shows a refreshingly bitter quality on the finish, along with suave floral and red fruit preserve notes."

JOHANN W SCHILD 2011 RIESLING KABINETT URZIGER WURZGARTEN MOSEL ** CLOSEOUT ** RELEASE PRICE $16!

add to cart $8.99   add a case $107.88

We love Riesling, consider it to be the greatest of white grapes, and love how it plays with a number of Asian dishes. There are a few good commercial choices out there like the Loosen Brothers Dr. L that sell in this price range. But mostly you see are negociant bottlings that bring back memories of (gasp) Blue Nun. This particular Riesling deal, however, pretty much trumps everything out there under $10 as well as a number of things that cost a lot more!

HASTAE 2005 QUORUM BARBERA D'ASTI ** CLOSEOUT ** RELEASE COST $50!
score: WA 90

add to cart $19.99   add a case $239.88

Antonio Galloni writes in Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Barbera d’Asti Quorum is a big wine loaded with dark jammy fruit, licorice, smoke and tobacco. It shows plenty of delineation and freshness in a supple, vibrant style that is appealing. Quorum is unquestionably well made from a technical standpoint, but is a wine without passion. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020."
