The 2009 The Red One is an eclectic blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Shiraz, 5% Barbera, 5% Trincadeira, 2% Tempranillo and 1% Nebbiolo. Possessing a deep garnet-purple color, this wine gives classic cabernet notes of cassis and graphite with some black cherry, cinnamon, anise and tar. Medium-high acid and a medium to firm level of chewy tannins support the good concentration of earthy fruit, with a good measure of spice coming though in the long finish. There's a lot of character here at a very modest price! Drink it now to 2014.

Polished and refined, offering a smooth-textured, easy-drinking mouthful of cherry, raspberry and white pepper flavors, lingering on the well-mannered finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Barbera. Drink now.

This vibrantly violet red wine contains a bouquet of red berry fruits of the Shiraz, which are highlighted by the varietal blackcurrant and eucalyptus lift of the Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate expresses beautifully, the consummation fleshy, rich fruit of the Shiraz and the majestic structure of the Cabernet Sauvignon, with light undertones of the nervy Barbera.
