The 2000 Van Ruiten Reserve Cab-Shiraz is one of those rare wines that make you want to shake your head in wonderment. Here’s a wine that has won an amazing FIVE GOLD MEDALS and yet remains eminently affordable—in fact a steal. We’re betting that few of you have even heard of Van Ruiten Winery let alone sampled this hidden gem. Winemaker tasting notes reveal a, “rich, generous wine loaded with currants, wild blackberry and plums. Exotic spices linger on a supple, lengthy finish.” Try pairing it with a garlic-infused leg of lamb. Enjoy it now and over the next three to four years.
