Alpha Domus The Navigator 2013 $30 ★★★★½Navigator scap

Blackberry, boysenberry, dark quava and intensely aromatic spice notes burst from the glass. Comprised of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot, this classic Bordeaux blend displays a delicious vein of dried herb and cocoa buoyed by fresh juicy acidity and good grip on the finish. Fabulous with sticky, slow roasted lamb shanks.
