Majella Wines 2008 The Musician Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz - 88pts

Majella Wines 2008 The Musician Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz (Coonawarra) South Australia

Availability: BCLDB stores
Cost: $19.99
Alcohol: 13.5%
Date Tasted: January, 2010

Tasting Notes:  A concentrated ruby core with a raspberry rim.  The nose expresses a steeliness with deep blackberry, white pepper, and obvious oak.  The oak is sustained on the palate with blackberry and green pepper.  The shiraz comes through with some spiciness and there are hints of green pepper.  The finish is long and spicy.  The Musician is straightforward and full bodied with excellent fruit concentration.  A solid sipper on its own, or good with a hearty BBQ.

Majella is a top producer of Cabernet in South Australia and this is a nice offering for everyday drinking.  No worries about putting this one down and waiting for development, the Musician is playing its tune right now. Drink 2010-2013.
