Taylors Wines 2014 Promised Land Cabernet Sauvignon, $13.95
A recipe for Slow Cooked Lamb Shanks that I ran three years ago continues to be one of the most popular posts on this site to date. Taylors Wines recommends serving its Promised Land Cabernet with lamb shanks, so it’s time to dig out the recipe once again and see if they’re right about it being the perfect combo. When you’re buying keenly priced wines like those from the Promised Land range, it pays to stick with varieties that are a region’s flagship. In the case of Clare Valley reds, that means Cabernet delivers the goods. This one has attractive cedar and spice notes and a silky finish. Along with the aforementioned lamb shanks, it makes for a very affordable winter-warming duo.
