Abbotts 1999 Cumulo Nimbus Shiraz (Minervois)

Editors' Choice

Though "oak dominates" this wine, "it's sexy." Bacon, espresso and dark chocolate add compexity to the oak-derived aromas. Full and smooth in the mouth; tobacco and dried spices, plus some black plum flavors, resonate on the palate. Finishes long with black oak and tannins.
