Redheads Studio Moonlighters Red 2010
Other Red Blends from South Australia, Australia
Deep Purple. Aromas of dark plum and cedar oak spice interplay with brighter notes of red currant. The palate is rich and unctuous and rolls with darker berry fruits. The Sangiovese steers the mid palate with short, sweet tannins and brings some zesty acidity to the profile. Complexes of oak spice and mocha add further complexity to this boldly styled wine.
Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Sangiovese, 3% Alicante Bouschet
Wine Spectator - "Vibrant, generous and expressive, offering cherry and pomegranate flavors, with fine tannins wrapped around a hint of green tea on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Alicante Bouschet. Drink now through 2016."

About South AustraliaMcLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley, South Australia produces some of the finest red wines of the country, and some say in the world. White wines gain their reputation from the distinctive Rieslings of Clare Valley.
About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
