White of the week

D'Arenberg The Hermit Crab Viognier Marsanne, 2006 ($14.99)

Contrary to the name, Hermit Crab will leave you feeling anything but crabby. It's an Australian wine that blends viognier and marsanne for a balanced taste that's not too rich. It's a mouthful of spicy pear and grapefruit flavors that has a long and soft finish. Although it's named after a crab, it pairs best with fish.

Red of the week

Thorn-Clarke Shotfire Ridge Shiraz, 2006 ($16.99)

Another wine from down under, Shotfire Ridge is a collection of sweet fruits, spice and fine tannins. It has hints of ripe plum and currant that balance perfectly with the spices and tannins. It lingers, but doesn't overpower the palate. It makes a delicious mate for a hearty stew or roasted lamb.
