A big Aussie Cabernet Sauvignon from a tongue-in-cheek label that beckons to Australia’s history as a penal colony. With its classic oaky Cabernet flavor profile of berries and vanilla, this wine is as brazen as the hearty convicts that survived the incarceration journey from England to Australia. Only the strong survived this so-called “punishment by transportation”, which was the sentence imposed on defendants who were convicted of one of 19 specified crimes (hence the name – their website lists the crimes, you should check it out!). With its lengthy, tannic mouthfeel, that strength of character comes across in every glass. You will enjoy 19 Crimes Cabernet Sauvignon on its own or with hard cheeses and charcuterie.
