Hello and happy Wednesday. I hope your week has been wonderful.
ring.bolt winery takes its name from a famous ship-wreck off the coast of Western Australia. Defined by the oceans, the Margaret River region enjoys a temperate, maritime climate with high winter rainfall and pristine, robust sea breezes to cool the precious fruit – wonderful conditions for growing superior Cabernet Sauvignon. ring bolt wineries website
The wine is a deep ruby colour and with pronounced aromas of plums, violet, chocolate and vanilla. This Cabernet Sauvignon is dry with medium + acidity and medium tannins. It is a full bodied wine with flavours that mirror the nose – plum, violet, chocolate but I also taste a bit of pepper and black cherry. This wine has a nice long finish but I felt that it needed to open up for about 45 minutes before it mellowed. This wine would pair beautifully with a lamb or beef dish.
Priced at $19.99 in the B.C. liquor stores – it is a great deal and, again, tastes like a more expensive wine. Wines from the Margaret River region of Australia are popular for a reason – they make excellent wine! This winery is so dedicated to the Cabernet Sauvignon grape that it only produces this one variety of wine, which is another unique aspect to this little number and is why it definitely falls into my “Hell Yes” category!
Thank you for reading. For the month of December, I am going to review some champagnes and sparkling wines for the upcoming holiday season.
If there is anything you would like me to review – please do leave me a comment!
