This wine blog contains my amateur reviews of wines that I have tried from around the world. Many of the reviews are based on a single bottle, which may or may not truly represent the wine. I welcome all comments. Cheers! Zum Wohl! Prost! Salud!

Bleasdale Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
The 2005 Bleasdale Cabernet Mulberry Tree from Australia is a medium bodied cabernet that has aromas of currants, cranberry and cedar. The wine is fruit forward with blackberrys and and has subtle tannins with a decent finish. It was aged in American and French oak barrels for 15 months. However, my wife and I both felt it was ok but would not run out to buy it any time soon. Retails for about $16. Rated 90 points by the International Wine Cellar and 89 points by the Wine Advocate. These are generous ratings.
