Food Pairings for Kaesler Cabernet-Shiraz Blend Barossa Valley W.O.M.S
Drank with Kristina on my 38th birthday. This wine was absolutely amazing! Brought to a local Italian restaurant (popped & poured). Incredible nose of dark cherry with a herbal component. Very pretty. Huge flavors of cherry, vanilla, oak, tobacco and chocolate. In fact, this wine was like chocolate in a glass! A smooth and lush, mouth-coating wine, very well integrated. I didn't get overwhelmed by the oak at all, although it was very evident. An extrordinary effort...one of the best wines I've tasted to date!
Having tasted this before in an ideal setting (and with food) on my birthday, I was doubting this rating would be as high as last time (98/100), and I was right. Color is a dark ruby. Nose is all raspberry, with LOTS of yummy earth aromas. On the palate, you can instantly tell the wine has incredible integration. Big flavors of raspberry and earth mingle with chewy tannins, sharp acidity and a bit of oak. They all play together nicely, making the wine absolutely delicious!
