Majella Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

$36 I don't often see much Australian wines more than $30 nowadays. This wine is from Coonawarra, one of the premium cabernet sauvignon producing region, but I am not expecting anything ex ordinary going into this tasting. This wine is a classic example of Australian Cabernet Sauvignon. It has intense fragrance of blackfruit bombs, menthol, spice, earth, smoke. On the tongue, strong acid (crispy!), full bodied, full tannin, high alcohol, mineral, with a nice kick at the end. Medium complexity and medium finish. Big everything, but didn't really result to anything spectacular. Above average wine at a good price.

I wanted to joke about pairing this wine with a cuban cigar, but someone ought to give this a try one day. As for food pair, bring it to a BBQ. Ribs, grilled steaks, game meats would be nice.
