Wine of the Week for January 30, 2006

Angove Bear Crossing Cabernet-Merlot - $10.95
Style: R3
Australia

Here's another entry in the "cute animal" arena. However, this wine doesn't need a cuddly label to be yummy. Rich ruby red, it shows delicate aromas of spice, dark fruits, plums, and a touch of vanilla at the close. Quite crisp with firm-but-yielding tannins, and flavours of plum and vanilla, closing with a hint of sweetness. Quite full, with very good length. Would do well alongside chili, grilled tuna or mushroom sauce. (LCBO 592766)

Cute labels are a plus if you are bringing a bottle to a party. This one has the looks, and the taste is pretty good too. Smooth, with a fair amount of complexity. We enjoyed it, and will try it again.

The blog looks great. Hope to see some of your readers' comments.
