Wine Rating:  90

Uncorked: 2007.08.22  Jeff’s Birthday Dinner – served with cheese course
I like this blend — 54% Shiraz, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc. It’s nose is less than expected for this big blend — aromas of dark berries and cedar. But in the mouth it explodes with fruit and texture. The dark berries continue in the taste along with ripe cherries, cranberry, plum, and spice. There is definitely deep wood in the flavor along with a slight earthiness — a bit surprising in a more new world style wine. Very soft in the mouth and a medium finish. Many levels in the taste of this wine. Good value for this level of complexity.

$14.99  Costco
