Zema Estate 2005 Cluny

The wines made by family-owned Coonawarra brand Zema Estate are so beautifully balanced that they are generally a pleasure to drink. This blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and malbec has 15% alcohol but handles it well. Rich and complex with some lovely softness, it is disturbingly drinkable. It was also a wine with a real evaporation problem - our bottle was drained with indecent haste. $25.
