Waywood Wines Quattro Vini 2010

A blend of Nebbiolo (35%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), Sangiovese (25%) and Shiraz (10%).  You can see how the blend works.  In the accompanying notes, the winemaker - Andrew Wood - explains hoe the blend is one tool of the winemaker in trying to achieve an idea, in this case something along the lines of a bistro wine, a great drinker - perfect with friends and food.

Sultry, dark fruited mix of plum, blackcurrant and black cherry with lovely smoky, savoury, smallgood elements thrown in too.  Juicy, fresh acidity adding one aspect in the mouth, supported by a sidekick of tannin - real tannin, chewy, grippy.  

Further, there's this tomato sauce element coursing though the palate, the acid wave carrying it through.  Damn juicy and drinkable.  91 - Very Good
