oliverhill winery MCLaren Vale 2007 Clarendon shiraz
Legend has it that angels landed in the Stags Leap District of Napa Valley and made a heavenly deal with a prestigious winery for Cabernet from the 2007 vintage. So now they’re sharing this enchanting red wine with those of us who are fortunate enough to taste this nectar from on high. Like a lotus unfolding, cosmic layers of black cherry, ripe currant, vanilla, dark chocolate and brown sugar gloriously spin into a rhapsody of crimson hue. The wine really works well with grilled flavors, be it ribeye steaks, beef tenderloin or leg of lamb, as well as marinated vegetables such as zucchini, squash and eggplant. Nowhere on this planet will you find a better deal from the SLD… the glory of Cab in its finest rendition.
