Corrina’s Cabernet Shiraz Blend

Premium Wines  |  2004 Corrina's Cabernet Shiraz Blend

Max Allen, 30 Top Wines under $30, Sept 2007

A wonderfully old-fashioned- in the best sense of the word- red from one of McLaren Vale's rising stars. Being a year or two older than many other current release wines gives this one a warm, earthy, damp-soil, chocolately richness.
