Reserve Club
January 2022

Tim's Wine Market

Every couple of years I like to take one Reserve Club release and look beyond California for the selections, in this case two from Washington State and one from Australia. Never fear, all three selections are at their very essence top shelf, New World wines; big texture, lavish fruit and conspicuous use of oak. I do this because I like to show that the influence of California winemaking is vast, not just in the US but also abroad. There is no mistaking the intention of the winemaker with any of these, and fans of “big” reds will feel right at home.
