Woody Allen is a fan of the wine, when asked what food he would recommend that this wine should be drunk with he stated "an elephant burger" needles to say it's a food wine.
Basic mass produced wines don't normaly meet all of these criteria. A nice statistic I was quoted says that more procyanidin can be found in one glass of Madiran than in two bottles of Aussie red wine.
If you would like to learn more of the health benefits of wine check out Roger Corders book called The Wine Diet.
All red wine is of course very good for you........in moderation.
