Austerity Red 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot A nice sweet whiff of vanilla oak greets the nose followed by the leafy, herbal black currant fruit of the cabernets and creamy cafe au lait and coconut aromas. A bit sweet in the mouth, and while this has plenty of acidity the sweetness lends it a bit of a fat feel. There’s plenty of rich, and slightly chewy fruit on the palate all supported by supple tannins. The finish is a bit short though with a refreshing reveal of acidity on the finale. A bit of an odd wine, leafy and fresh on the nose then fruity and a bit sweet with plenty of red currant blackberry jam in the mouth, it’s made in a crowd pleasing fruit forward style. 86pts
