2005 Henry's Drive Dead Letter Office Shiraz: So, so good!


sept. 13, 2009: this wine was from australia. we had it with grilled chicken seasoned with garlic salt, red pepper and garlic, and homemade mashed potatoes and carrots. victoria thinks this is a substantial shiraz, with a very strong fruit flavor and a heavy, almost syrupy body. she'd get it again. greg says the wine has the tannic scent he is familiar with and the flavor is complex. he said it's smooth and simultaneously sweet and tart, with a dark cherry flavor. this padthaway, australia, wine is 98 percent shiraz with 2 percent cabernet sauvignon. 15 percent alcohol, with some sediment. $31.99 from friar tuck in st. louis (with five percent case discount).
