Originally priced at $17, this was the other Wolf Blass I mentioned yesterday that was on sale for $10. A steal, and tasty to boot. This one came out of the gate with all cylinders firing. It was inky purple in the glass and showed off a delightful nose of black currants and star anise. My initial impression was very positive when I got Blackberry pie and some interesting vanilla on the first sip. I enjoyed the ‘crispy’ tannins as they carried the wine to the mid palate where I tasted plums with a touch of acidity. A very enjoyable wine that is a good buy at it’s regular price, making it a steal at the sale price. It had a good amount of length and the mouthfeel was just right. I would easily serve this up with beef stew on a cold night, or a juicy NY strip on the grill in the summer time. I am going 90 points and 4 stars for this easy to find wine. Salut….
