BRASH HIGGINS “MCC Lennon Vineyard”

(McLaren Vale, Australia) $29

This fantastically lively MMC blend of Mourvèdre/Cinsault/Carignan is a little like watching three people at a party all of whom are busily outdoing one another to be the center of attention. The delicious flavors whizz around like balls in a pinball machine. And what flavors—loads of clove and cinnamon spiciness, waves of espresso and cedar, and clashing cymbals of violets and black cherry. I love it when a red wine is full of energy, freshness, and it’s moving fast. McLaren Vale is one of the top appellations within the state of South Australia, famous for old vineyards planted with Rhône varieties. 13.3% abv
