Review: $ 3000 BC Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz, South Africa, 2009 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for 3000 BC wines.

Original tasting and review : This is 3000 BC Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz, South Africa, 2009.

In the glass: Deep magenta, opaque from about a quarter of an inch in from the edge.

On the nose: Poured cool and swirled vigorously, shows soft, comfortable, Lazy-Boy leather aromas.  From the aroma, seems like this will be easy and clean.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact more funky than I anticipate, with a blend of the "patented" South-African banana plus prickly red plum fruit.  Friendly and fun finish.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, just touching best value status.
