Black Fruits Plus Allspice -Elegant Sunday Dinner Wine!

Wine selection can be tricky,but Jim Truswell graciously shares his wine notes and pairing suggestions with our readers on a regular basis. Today!s article highlights a delightful wine which Would make an elegant pairing for a Sunday dinner,

Katnook Estates 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon
Once in a while I will open a bottle from my cellar that has reached its prime.This is a wine you will want to decant at the 10 year point.After all,wines are made to be enjoyed not collected. Where do I start with a wonderful example of the winemakers art?

The wine was wonderfully complex on the nose as it was being decanted. A promised balance of fruit and some minerality. From the first sip, you will note the full body with excellent mouth-feel. Next fully matured black fruit extremely well balanced with hints of allspice and/or cloves. Some wispy cedar notes follow. A wonderfully long pleasant finish.

Pairing: Prime rib, crown rib roast, rack of lamb

Recommendation: BUY

Jim Truswell- Local wine lover, blogger, photographer, and computer ‘expert’ who is searching perhaps in vain for someone to pay him to drink wine, blog rude comments, take photographs, and play on the computer. Failing this, he would be happy to accept unclaimed winning lottery tickets, and/or return bottles for the deposit. Will blog for a free meal ... or even leftovers. Will drink wine ... no reason required. Will blog ... for kicks and giggles. Will photograph at the drop of a hat ... especially if women are involved. Will play on the computer ... in his sleep. Pity him ... and give him a nice glass of wine. You can catch more of Jim's Wine Reviews on his blog: Jim's Random Mostly Wine Ramblings & Babblings Image of Turkey from Laurenbeth93
