Price at time of purchase: $17.99 (K&L)
Type: Shiraz

Rhone-grape blend that had the leathery, somewhat tough-textured feel of some pure Mourvedre wines we've tried in the past. We didn't like it quite as much as the Shiraz-dominated Australian reds with the velvet flow of fruit and more open-knit texture. But this wine is still plenty tasty. Lots of gamey cherry/licorice fruit, rich in the mouth with a full finish. - WB exec team 2004-11-27
