Tintara Cabernet $7.99 (save 50%) - 11/19/2010 - Australia

2006 Tintara Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $16) ($7.99)

IT'S BACK ! We sold over 2,000 bottles of this wine in less than 2 months last November. Founded in 1861, Tintara is one of the pioneers in the McLaren Vale wine community. This Cabernet Sauvignon offers a bouquet of black currant, blackberry, blueberry, chocolate, earth and a hint of anise. The wine gained additional complexity from 17 months in predominantly French oak barrels giving a subtle toffee note. On the palate, there are soft silky tannins and good acidity that lead to a fine long finish. This may be hands down, one of the best Aussie values of the year, so grab a case for your summertime parties this year. (Jim Chanteloup, Australian wine buyer)
