Honestly, I wasn't expecting a lot from this wine, and
have held off of trying it for the longest time (though I
will admit that they make a smashing Shiraz), but in the
process of canceling a trip and eating a sandwich, I decided
to uncap this and try it.
All I can say is 'wow!' This wine actually surprised me
to a huge degree. It has all of the standard beauty of a
Cabernet Sauvignon, but blended with the silky essence of a
Merlot. I can taste some heavy jams in this wine, with very
soft tannins. Cherries do abound in this.
This is actually a wine that you can get in either the
750ml or 1.5L bottle and it will still be a good purchase
for a small or large group of people.
