Stickleback Red, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Dolcetto, Lagreine, Langhorne Creek and Limestone Coast, Southern Australia, 2009, C$17

Available in BC at your local government liquor store, here’s an interesting blended table wine.

The Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz offer structure, the Dolcetto brightness and acidity and the Lagreine spice and tannin.  This wine is made from grapes that grow in both Langhorne Creek and the Limestone Coast – and the Lagreine is from 12 ha of vineyards which is the largest amount grown outside of its Italian homeland.

Deep ruby with a black fruit profile – distinct blackberry, field berry, and cassis – the wine shows chocolate and licorice as well.  It’s got medium acidity and tannins and a medium plus finish. Fresh. fruity, dark and WSET Good.

We enjoyed this wine with cracked pepper coated burgers.
