review – the guilty 2010 shiraz

I shouldn’t even tell you about this wine….

Holy rotten grapes, batman. This wine kicks ass!

My dear friend, Nicole – who I think drinks dry French spit, that’s how much we have in common with our wine, left a smidge of this wine here when she left on Saturday.

I am in love….

This is a bold, big, stays with you, sticks to your ribs (not the sides of your mouth) red wine. It is everything a fruity red should be. I love it. Did I say that already?

This nectar of the God’s heralds from Australia. From Victoria, Australia. And the first vines planted on the estate date back to the 1800’s. You can taste the architecture in this wine. Seriously. I don’t know how else to out it. It’s like the 3 little pigs. Some wines are made of straw, or wood, or paper, or feathers. This wine has great bones. You can feel the structure. It is so bold but has no overpowering oaked fuzz-mouth thing that happens sometimes.

You can taste the cherry, the earth, the tobacco… it’s all good. Don’t waste it on food. Just sit with it quietly somewhere and be happy.

At $26 a bottle it is a treat for me. But with just 82 bottles left at the liquor store (use this handy link to find that kind of shit out – http://www.bcliquorstores.com/product/217661) I am going to be moseying down on payday to buy 2!

    sniff, sniff, there is none in Kamloops, may have to order a bottle. I have a serious love affair with BIG reds.
