($450; a blend of 56% Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon and 44% Barossa shiraz) Violet color. Cherry, blackberry and sexy oak spices on the nose, with a suave smoky tone adding complexity. Very sweet and sappy, with fat but juicy flavors of cherry preserves, ripe plum and baking spices. This has great flavor extract and richness but it's not thick or viscous. A wine of great structure, depth and length finishing on a sweetly spicy note of new American oak. This clocks in at only 13.3% alcohol and proves that a wine does not need head-spinning alcohol or ultraripeness to accomplish flavor impact. The only previous bottling under this bin number was the 1962.
