External Reviews for Paracombe Red Bordeaux Blend Adelaide Hills the Reuben
James Halliday ReviewHighly aromatic and spicy; delicious medium-bodied wine, enirely fruit-driven by its cocktail of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz.Wine & Spirits ReviewRated 91Intriguing fruit complexities grow out of this unusual blend: cabernet sauvignon (44 percent) and shiraz (33) with small portions of merlot, malbec and cabernet franc. It's a potent mix of berry flavors, layering blueberry over blackberry, boysenberry and black currant. The fruit richness more than coats the peppery tannin, ready to decant for roast venison.Wine Tasting NotesThe wine has attractive bright color in the glass and a delightful lifted bouquet of red cherries and plum with subtle oak, leatherwood and spicy notes. The palate is medium weight with rich, sweet fruit driven flavors of fresh loganberries and raspberries along with spicy notes. The Reuben is a wonderful food wine and will complement many styles of food. It will reward with age and promises to be enjoyed for many years to come.
