Wapisa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

San Javier, Río Negro, Patagonia, Argentina
318 days ago

Jisun Hahn scored this wine: 88/100

This deeply coloured Cabernet Sauvignon is from a newer wine region, Rio Negro which tends to be cooler than other wine growing regions of Argentina. This has resulted in a more medium body Cabernet Sauvignon with layers of cinnamon, cloves and herbs surrounded by a taught tannic structure. Ripe black cherries and blackcurrant round out the fruit and evidence of graphite linger on the palate. Enjoy this wine now with roast lamb and garlic fingerling potatoes tossed with olive oil and herbes de provence.

This deeply coloured Malbec is a gorgeous concoction of ripe black fruit and spice. Tannins are firm but silky and well balanced with medium plus acidity that brings a nice brightness to the palate. Turned earth and a hint of tobacco adds additional elegance. A fine wine to pair with smoked short ribs with a dark cherry compote on the side. Enjoy now or hold for 3 to 5 years.

Columbia Valley, Washington, United States

Jisun Hahn scored this wine: 92/100

A well structured, deeply coloured wine with intense dark cherries on the nose. Layers of black fruit, cloves, dried earth and hints of sage wrap the palate. The flavours linger and the tannins are firm, balanced nicely with a tinge of brightness from the acidity towards the end. Enjoy this wine with New Zealand lamb chops topped with mint sauce and a side of potatoes au gratin.

This Shiraz from McLaren Vale, South Australia is both savoury and steeped in rich ripe fruit. Blackberry compote dominates with blackcurrants, cocoa and black olives.

Jaraman

Wakefield Winery Jaraman Shiraz 2017

Clare Valley, Mclaren Vale, South Australia, Australia

Jisun Hahn scored this wine: 91/100

This violet coloured wine is quite luscious on the palate. Loads of ripe blackberry, cassis and plum compote. With an additional layer of cocoa powder, vanilla and baking spices. A hint of mint at the finish. This wine definitely leaves an impression and would be a delightful pairing for any grilled meats, especially Korean BBQ ribs!
