Majella Wines The Melleea Cabernet Shiraz 2008

There is something non sequitur about Australian cabernet shiraz blends.  Something in them pulls at me - I don't want to like them.  Maybe it's because I like Bordeaux so much, it seems an "improper" mix.  It is completely illogical though.   Yet I almost always like these blends, because they just taste so darn good - in particular this wine.  An aroma of spices, herbs and Christmas cake.  The palate has acidity, plums and that depth of flavour that just makes you want to drink more.  Buy this.  89 to 90 points.
