Wine Review: Lawsons Ridge 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon

Another wine from South Eastern Australia with body and structure! This cabernet possesses an old world style with firm tannins, thick leathery mouthfeel and a chewiness not commonly found in new world wines. It opens up slightly with a little more fruit after an hour or so.

Pair this with a steak or rustic Italian pasta dish with a red sauce and you can’t go wrong!

I will admit I’ve been looking for more old world style wines and Grocery Outlet is starting to carry more of them. The wine buyer there is Stefano Turrini, formerly of Veloce (Now Dimmi) Liquor Di Milano. The man has a passion for providing customers with quality wines. I met him way back when La Salle Cigars was still open in Montclair, Oakland. I did a review of Dimmi and have one bottle left but I’ll have to hunt for it!
