Genny’s Pick: 2014 Bleasdale The Broad-Side Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon-Malbec, $14.99

This month I chose a red blend simply for the label with its picture of a 1930s motorcycle rider practicing a “Broad-Side” turn. Australia’s Bleasdale was established in 1850 by Frank Potts, and the motorcycle enthusiast was Frank Potts the second’s youngest son, Lloyd Stanley (Sticky Potts).  The sixth generation of the family runs the winery today. Their Broad-Side blend is delightfully complex. Like most blended families, the Potts family knows what to do with a juicy mix! With flavors of plum, black currant, chocolate, boysenberry and spice, it’s a harmonious blend of the three varieties. Enjoy with a hearty winter stew or a summer BBQ, or your favorite Potts person!
