Langmeil Barossa Three Gardens Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre 2009

Now this is how to blend.  This is artistry.  Open the spice cabinet.  Clove, cinnamon, plum, vanilla on the finish and long in what I can only describe as slightly unusual, not as smooth as the Robert Parker clones usually are, but just lovely.  We drank it with some extra old cheddar, not what would be a match made in heaven, but it did the job and it did it well.  More than I like to pay for wine but sometimes you have to pay more for wine than you want to (which is called living in British Columbia…).  I did not write down or Google the percentages on blends because in the end it didn’t matter, they did an excellent job, an expert job.  Thank you Langmeil.
