Majella The Musician Cabernet Shiraz 2011


Majella's "Musician" is a cabernet shiraz blend and is a reliable wine in the sub $20 price bracket that I have returned to over the years.  The 2011 vintage was a difficult one in Coonawarra, and it shows in the wine.  The aromatics remind more of cabernet than shiraz, with impressions of leaves and dried tobacco.  The palate is in a lighter style, with notes of blackcurrant and a medium body.  Overall, a certain balance is reached and there are no sharp edges, but this wine is usually a lot more interesting.

Rating: Acceptable, Abv: 13.5%, Price: $17, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://www.majellawines.com.au, Tasted: 2014
