Yalumba 2002 Red (Barossa Valley)

Editors' Choice

Sixty percent Mourvèdre, with Grenache and Shiraz getting 30% and 10%, respectively. The texture's great—a little rough around the edges, but that's part of its charm. Juicy mixed plums on the palate get a strong kick of black pepper, which you'll also pick up on the nose. I see plenty of food-pairing potential here (lamb or rabbit, for starters), though winemaker Jane Ferrari says that cheese is the way to go.
