McPherson The Full Fifteen 2016 2018

Famous for his personality-packed reds, Andrew McPherson is a favorite of top critic James Halliday (Australia’s answer to Robert Parker), who rates his estate an impressive four stars and writes that the quality of his wines “is unfailingly good.”

Andrew makes his Full Fifteen red just for us, and over the years it’s become one of our most popular Aussie reds. His 2016 release marries his ripest Cabernet, Merlot and more, from sun-drenched South Australian vineyards (the perfect foundation for a FULL fifteen percent alcohol). Then, he ages the mix in American oak for a toasty-rich character – so rich in fact, he’s described this final result as being “like two bottles crammed into one.”

Look forward to an inky-purple color, with billowing aromas of blackberry and vanilla oak. A velvety texture frames the mouthfilling flavors of black cherry, plum and cassis – and makes this an ideal choice for hearty meals. Think BBQ, meaty pastas, braised red meats and more.
