Hollick 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot

Sometimes you open a bottle of wine that's lipsmackingly good and without thinking about it too much suddenly discover the bottle is empty. That's what happened with this easy-to-drink red blend from one of Coonawarra's best family-owned wineries. You'll find luscious dark berry fruit flavours to the fore with soft tannins and oak very much in the background. Open a bottle of this, roast a leg of lamb and sparks will fly. $24.

So true Winsor! I personally felt Hollick had a ripper '06! - Keep on drinking and be merry!
