I thought since we had a Black Beers thread, a red wine thread should supplement.


Tonight:

Grant Burge Daly Road Shiraz Mourvèdre, 2010

Fucking awsome drop.

Last night it was Coppola Rosso, a blend.

Tonight it's Bob's Red Blend, Barnard Griffin, 2014.

We're a bottle-a-night household. More gourmands than gourmets. We like spicy, chewy reds. Zinfandels and Cabernets. Most of the blends from Oregon and Washington have quite a bit of cab in them. It's the trending grape in Washington - over 40 thousand tons harvested last year.

The Footbolt is a McLaren Vale classic.

We too are a bottle-a-night household. Still working our way through the cases we bought at Taylors in the Clare Valley en route to the Cabal.

@Taylors. One for the road.

Jude and I were in Moe last night and had an *OK* meal at the pub but bought a bottle of, very overpriced as you can get it for $12 at Dan's, Memsies 'Homestead' Shiraz from 2013. It needed a few minutes of air but it was a very nice drop. At $12 a bottle I'll buy a few.

Yous down under are dumping some very nice Shiraz here for impossibly low prices. We did a little taste test here tonight. The Shiraz was $6, the Cab $20. It was hard to pick a winner. How they can ship it here and sell it at this price is beyond me. You're giving the California vineyards a run for their money, and us winos are loving it. drunken

LBC, some of the labels you get in the USA, are simply not available here in Oz. Pricing stateside is extraordinary compared to what we have to pay here. Enjoy it while the Pacific Peso (Australian Dollar) is favourable. Better still, send some over here so we can enjoy them too

Well, please keep sending it Tony. Our presidential race has devolved into a clown-show of doom and we're going to be needing a lot more wine. Barring some miracle, the economic tables may soon be turned and you'll be enjoying California wine for a pittance.

Just got the wine cooler for the front closet.  18 bottles capacity.  Nice unit - glass door, wood shelves, blue led interior light, cheap-o from Amazon.

Stumbled across more excellent Aussie wine. Got a kick out of the historical theme, and really impressed with the quality of both.

Never heard of that one! Export only?

Not all Australian wine is great. But all is not lost. You know those bottles in the back of the cupboard that you won't drink unless you are desperate ? Keep them for a cold winters night, and treat yourself to some Mulled Wine.... (or Gluhwein, or Glogg in different parts of the world. Here's the recipe.

1 bottle of Vin Rouge Tres Ordinaire.
1 orange, cut to quarters or more. Leave peel on.
1 stick cinnamon.
Half a cup of sugar.
12 cloves.
A generous slug of rum.

Bring slowly to the boil, and enjoy. Guaranteed to kill common colds and arthritic pain.

Went stupid last night and knocked off a Greenock Creek Roennfeldt Road.

Not riding and still on crutches needs good medicine.

Not a big fan of lower price range West Australian reds, but this one made me sit up.

Rosenthal 'Garten Series' Shiraz 2014. From Mt Barker.

Tasty little wine. Bit young, but very drinkeable.

The Mechanic, by Hamish McGuire

Smells like wee until it has aired for a bit, but a beautiful taste and mouth feel as smooth as an Estonian hooker's arse.

Aussie heathens! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaujolais

Fleurie - One of the most widely exported Cru Beaujolais into the United States. These wines often have a velvet texture with fruity and floral bouquet.[11] In ideal vintages, a vin de garde (wine for aging) is produced that is meant to age at least four years before consuming and can last up to 16 years.[4]
