7590JaneGarveyAtlantaGeorgiaUSAFull-bodied dry red wine; fairly deep inky red. Aromas of white pepper (curiously), but then red fruits emerge, and you get a whiff of strawberry and red raspberry. Dark fruits (plums) dominate flavors with a finish reminiscent of malted milk balls. Nice balance. Very silky, fruit-derived tannins. Just a smidge of heat in the finish, but not much; certainly nothing rich foods can’t handle. A bit dumb when first opened; so decant several hours ahead of serving at cool, room temperature [65ºF (18ºC)] in large tulip-shaped glasses. A potential long-term keeper. Still tasty several days after being opened. Just south of the city of Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills produces excellent wines. This is a Merlot specialist. Miles would like this one. Owners Jan and John Smeaton live in Athens, GA, but fly home each season to work the harvest.

Suggested Food Pairings:
Roast duck or Cornish hen with black currant red wine glaze; smoked pork, grilled lamb chop or lamb steak; roast pork tenderloin with dark dried fruit and Vidalia onion stuffing; mild curries, Roaring ‘40s blue (King Island, Australia) or creamy blues, caramel-filled milk chocolate or medium-high (about 55%) dark chocolate.
