Enjoy this juicy, slightly candied, and well balanced Aussie Cabernet with red meat, from burgers to ribeye. The nose shows black currant, milk chocolate, coffee, and briars. Blackberries and black cherries lead, followed by chocolate and coffee. The small amounts of shiraz and cabernet franc show, with hints of smoky meat and tobacco on the finish. Acidity is good, tannins dusty. Drink this with thick bacon burgers.
