Peter Lehmann Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 Wine Review (NW)

Sweet blackberry and anise nose
Fruity core on the palate
Finish of berries, cola, and cocoa

For $12, this wine is a pretty good deal. It's dense and rich, offering a real Cab experience. It paired well with our grilled steaks and didn't get dull after the meal either.

I got this wine on sale, and I've seen it as high as $17. I think that's a bit of a stretch. If you happen to find it at a good price, grab it. If the shelf is stocked with the 2002, no need to hesitate as I've heard that's a fine offering as well. I have yet to sample that myself so I can't be sure, but good sources tell me it's a nice wine for the money, too.

Raise a glass!
