2006 Bleasdale "Langhorne Crossing" (52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Malbec, 15% Shiraz, 6% Petit Verdot) (Langhorne Creek, Aus.)

A good everyday dinner wine. Fruity, flavorful, soft, balanced.

Bright, deep ruby color. Yeasty, fruity nose -- black raspberries and sweet blackberry. Medium full body, with direct blackberry and ripe cassis flavors. Also a hint of scorched earth. Clean, fruity, steely-minerally finish. Virtually no tannin to speak of. 86. Was $12 at Whole Foods on Bellaire (also available at the same price at HEB on Buffalo Speedway).
