Samuel's Gorge Tempranillo 2010
Justin McNamee has been producing this variety for a fare while now and consistently makes one of the best in Australia. The 2010 version is a little dirtier and mustier than normal which moves it into a more elegant and funky style with a hell of a load of interest. There are elements of cherry cola, smoked licorice and lamb korma sitting on a medium bodied frame with soft and silky tannins underneath. These tannins are in perfect proportion to the flavours and they provide an additional succulence to the wine. This is definitely a birthday gift style of wine that would bring a smile to the recipients face. Better still buy yourself a gift.
