The nose is like a $150 Napa Cab, the taste is more like $50 Napa Cab, but the price is only $27.95 Sonoma

Description: Deep ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This complex wine features cedar, dark cherry, plum, raspberry, black currants, boysenberry, black olives, cinnamon, cloves, figs, smoked cherry pipe tobacco, chocolate covered raisins, turmeric, pencil shavings, leather and purple lilac on the nose. Full body with medium to medium+ tannins, good acidity, a long length and the alcohol is well integrated.

Negatives: None

Drink now or in the next 10 years on its own or pair it with Pistachio and Coriander Crusted Rack of Lamb with lamb jus and port wine emulsion.

Tasted: 2 February 2016
