Wine opinions

2005 Black Swan Shiraz — South Eastern Australia

I purchased a bottle of Shiraz this week from our local liquor store here in Vancouver, BC. The price here was quite economical ($9.99 CDN) by local standards, so I thought we should give it a try. This wine is by no means phenomenal, however it reminds me a lot of my current favourite wine the California Zinfindel. It’s quite fruity, and a touch spicy. It has that touch of pepper that makes me such a fan of Red Zin. For $10 its a great wine, although it would be better if it were a touch drier.

I consider this a 3 out of 5 on the warped taste scale that is so unique to each of us.
