WINE: MAJELLA ‘The Musician’ Cabernet Shiraz 2006

Type: Red
Origin: Coonawarra, South Australia
Approx Cost: $15

I keep looking for a non-sparkling wine from Majella that fills me with the same wow-factor that came with the delicious Sparkling Shiraz of theirs. Unfortunately, this isn’t it.

But it’s not bad. The cab sav really dominates (70%), but is nicely rounded off by the delicious shiraz that Majella make (30%).

Very dark crimson. Blackberry and liquorice on the nose. The palate is sweet and juicy. Blackcurrant, blackberry, plum, vanilla and liquorice. Mid-length finish with soft tannins.

Approachable now but could be better with a couple of years.
