2008-Robertson Winery # 1 Constitution Road Shiraz
Robertson, South Africa
Virtually unknown until recently, the Robertson region lies just East of Stellenbosch and has become the hot bed of great Shiraz (reminiscent of the rise of Sonoma Valley in the shadow of Napa). The patriarch estate of Robertson promotes the Number One Constitution Road Shiraz as the flagship wine of the state that expresses the opulent aromas of black fruit, pepper spice and dark chocolate notes with a velvety texture in the finish. Great BBQ, stew, lamb and hearty cheese wine.
