North Star Stella Maris 2004

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 90There was no slippage for Stella in this second vintage; in fact, it's a clear step up from the 2003. 88% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot, this titillates with sweet raspberry fruit, leading into chocolate and cherry. It's a lively delicious wine, that tops out at 14.5% alcohol.Wine Tasting NotesA well-balanced, approachable Bordeaux blend layered with attractive, ripe plum, cherry and black currant flavors and notes of vanilla, cloves and chocolate. The addition of Malbec gives this wine a lush mouthfeel and contributes to the generous finish.
