South Africa — Stellenbosch • $18.95 • 89/100

A new-world blend based on Shiraz, with 30% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep ruby-purple in colour, showing red on the narrow rim. Very ripe plum, blackberry and black currant fruit on the nose, with some barrel spice, and a hint of menthol. The wine is well-structured: dry, with enough acidity to provide a counter-weight for both the alcohol and firm, mouth-coating tannins. Fruit is dense and lush on the palate, but the wine remains lively and balanced. • Tasted 2017-07-22 • LCBO id#278390 • Find it at your nearest LCBOWOODMAN WINES & SPIRITS (Agent)
