Along with the 2012 Shiraz Grenache from Wolf Blass, I also bought this blend at the same time. Priced at $10 each or in my case $14 for both. Cabernet does better with Merlot, and Shiraz is a natural with Grenache and Mourvedre. I thought this would be an interesting blend. Red berry with some cassis came up and the wine was very smooth. Easy to drink as it is made in a very fruit forward quaffing style. I think I preferred the Grenache blend as it was more balanced. The Cabernet seemed to be fighting with the Shiraz for top honors. Still, a decent wine for the price that would be great for a BBQ or a picnic of roast beef sandwiches and potato salad. For me, an 85 pointer with 3 stars. Salut….
