|Region||South Australia, Australia|
Wonderful paired with a scheme for an evening’s escape, this wine conjures up red currants, dark berries and sweet vanilla oak in a passing smell. Caramel lurks in the back. Firm cabernet tannins and red fruits let the flavor linger after each nip.View all products by 19 Crimes
The first thing you'll notice about 19 Crimes is the label. Each label shows a piece of history from the stories of British men who were convicted of at least one of the 19 crimes punishable by transportation to Australia, a voyage that many didn't survive. The ones who made it are celebrated on the labels as scholars and pioneers for their principles and perseverance. One of the featured gents, John Boyle O'Reilly, is known for penning poetry during his journey and eventually outwitting the prison guards to escape to America. As 19 Crimes puts it, their wine "celebrates the rules they broke and the culture they built."
Australian wine makers are known for their unrestricted options in production. This liberal approach has made Australia a pioneer in the wine world, creating oceans of affordable quality wine. The hot and dry climate, often balanced with cool nights and cool ocean breezes, allows wine to be made with an incredible intensity of fruit flavors as well as excellent balance and structure.
The 19 crimes Cabernet Sauvignon is a star of the winery. Bright and intensely crimson red wine, it features rich notes of spicy vanilla laced with ripe red current and cassis. The wine is supple and juicy on the palatte with a soft velvety texture, gently gripping tannin and a lingering finish interwoven with vanilla and cocoa. This versatile wine would be outstanding with red meat, game fowl, pasta with marinara or a juicy cheeseburger. But don't discount this style of bold, rich cabernet when it comes to dessert, since it pairs nicely with dark chocolate as well.
