2005 Tapestry Cabernet Sauvignon, McLaren Vale, Australia $24.95LCBO #059980
This week’s wine can be summed up in one word….BIG! The Tapestry Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia’s McLaren Vale is a huge wine that really shouldn’t be drunk without a big piece of grilled meat nearby.
This wine has strong flavours of black cherry and blackberry with a hint of vanilla. It’s full bodied and at 14% alcohol it packs quite a punch if you aren’t careful.
At $24.95, this wine would be great for an outdoor dinner party this summer or can easily be cellared for up to 5 years…but that’s just my opinion. Let me know what you think.
