Fragrant and expressive, with oodles of baked fruit, raspberry, blackberry, cinnamon toast and sweet vanilla, this forward, fleshy, fruit-driven wine is classic McLaren Vale and an absolute joy to drink. The wine's subtle notes of black olive with a hint of lavender and black sage accent this heady wine perfectly, making it a beautiful match for smokey, Texas-style barbecue. Be sure to have plenty of friends and family around to enjoy this delightful red.
