’06 Elderton Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon

   If you’re looking for a fuller body, put a little south in your mouth. Elderton is one of Australia’s most notable, and for good reason. The E-Series '06 Shiraz Cab is a fuller bodied blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes which come from the Barossa region of Aussie Land. The wine is not only a rich color of purple, its rich in its properties. With hints of violet and cherry, this wine was also aged in American oak so don’t be surprised if you also get flavors of coconut and vanilla. At 14% alcohol, it’s pretty versatile, so pop it open during a BBQ!
