The nose of this rich Cabernet-Shiraz blend announces the presence of classic Barossa Shiraz, with notes of blackberry, blueberry and cassis and a hint of dried sage. Cabernet Sauvignon is clearly present in the structure and complexity of this dense, full-bodied wine. Moderate oak doesn't detract from, but rather complements, the intense fruit flavors. This Cabernet-Shiraz is enjoyable now but will continue to develop in the bottle for several years. Pair this wine with hearty fare such as charcoal-grilled steak, roast leg of lamb with white bean puree and pasta with rich red sauce.
Blend: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 49% Shiraz
Love this wine - cheap and goes down smooth without the normal 'cheap' taste you get with a lot of wines in this price range
Earthy & Spicy
Terrific buy and I would have no hesitation to buy another case of this. Needs to breathe to appreciate its body and aroma. Foil on the top of my bottles were slightly lifted and would not be good gift giveaways.
Enjoyed the first 6 bottles with friends and ordered a lot more. Found that letting it breathe enhanced the flavor. Will offer it at my next party. Enjoyed with spicy guacamole and chili con queso!
