What I’m Drinking Tonight

1998 Wynns Coonawarra Estate Michael Shiraz
I’m rather disappointed by this wine. I like shiraz that are full of cassis and plummy, chewy fruit, and all the write-ups that I saw on this wine said it was full of such.
Well, it ain’t. I mean, were it a $12 bottle I’d have nothing to complain about, as it does have a nice full body and some nice leathery and cedar flavors, but the tons-o-fruit just ain’t there, and it has a touch more tannins than I usually expect in a shiraz; it actually drinks more like a cab. At $25 it ain’t a keeper.

    You should have stopped by the Applebee’s instead, Mr. B. Good turnout.

    Argh! I forgot about that.
    Dang it.

    It’s all good. (Every second and fourth Tuesday.) Also, the Theology on Tap series is starting up on September 7th (come one, come all 21 and up). Everything a member of a rival brand could want to know about the Eucharist!
    My buddy Frank keeps up with the schedule and posts updates here.
