Codename:

Whatever the Weatherly

We always enjoy our visits with Sheldon Wines and we absolutely love their wines. Today, we are just thrilled to bring you their 2009 Sheldon Wines Weatherly Cuvée, a delicious blend that our entire tasting panel adored. This wine get’s a highly recommended for any fan of juicy red blends.

The mouth is as full as can be, with lush, bold and delicious fruits that are bigger than the nose initially indicates. The wine is complex and integrated with soft tannins and a plush and leathery feel. An unconventional blend, our entire tasting panel chose this wine as the highlight of our tasting.

Pair this very food-friendly wine with a rich Lamb roulade with dried plums or a Provençale ratatouille.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark and concentrated maroon with pretty ruby edges. Thin tears fall swiftly down the glass after swirling.

Smell:

Rich and ripe with dried cherry, black currant, chocolate covered blueberry, cocoa dust and blackberry. As the wine opens, it reveals subtle thyme, California bay tree leaf and dried violets.

Taste:

Blackberry, fresh black cherry with spiced black cherry candy. As the wine breathes, it delivers additional hints of savory herbs.

Finish:

Ultra long and lingering with soft, plush tannins that support the fruit and earthiness all across the palate.
