2012 Massena Moonlight Run Proprietary Red Wine
Barossa Valley, South Australia
Wonderful lifted flavors of some sort of warm Thanksgiving dish with cinnamon, dark berries, and root vegetables. Go figure that combo. The finish is long and almost a bit meaty. Could be the touch of Cinsault. Really interesting and really tasty.

"96 pts ... A 57/31/7/5% blend of grenache, mataro, shiraz and cinsaut. This is a statuesque, gloriously rich and fruit-sweet blend; there are multiple layers of flavour in its medium to full-bodied palate, and tannins most red winemakers would love to have in their wines, at once firm, yet mouthwatering. Drink through 2027."
"91 pts ...Inky ruby. Pungent aromas of musky cherry pit, cassis and candied licorice. Plush, pliant and sweet, offering smoky dark berry, mineral and mocha flavors complicated by hints of candied rose and licorice. Finishes spicy and long, with smooth, slow-building tannins and a hint of smokiness. "
