Review date: April 7, 2016

Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Calabria comes from a block of vines planted in 1928. It is very good. It opens with a mild black cherry bouquet with hints of eucalyptus. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused gentle black currant with notes of blueberry and oak. I also detected hints of menthol and mulberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a bit. This Cab is food friendly and would pair well with a New York strip steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Fruit sourced from the Barossa Valley. Intense deep red with a crimson edge. Fragrant with an array of mulberry fruit, blackcurrant and a cedar nose. A full bodied smooth palate with big notes of ripe fruit and five spices integrating with vanillin oak, providing complexity, ensuring a well-balanced, mouth filling and flavoursome finish. Ideal accompaniment to roast meats, such as lamb shanks with fresh herbs including thyme, rosemary and sage. Enjoy also with vintage cheddar cheeses.

Organic status: not organic
