Stone Dwellers Cabernet Sauvignon 2009, Australia

Cabernet sauvignon
Food Pairing
Roast beef or lamb

Can a red be crowd-pleasingly smooth and boisterously fruity yet serious and layered enough to win over high-minded connoisseurs? This wine could be considered an affirmative answer. It's simultaneously luscious and vibrant, with liqueur-like sweetness balanced by juicy acidity and fine-grained, dry tannins. Nuances of tobacco and black olive rise up through the finish. Great price, too. Introduce it to roast beef or lamb.
