2006 DB (de Bortoli) Shiraz Cabernet: Serious, fun, good value.

march 12, 2010: after a long week for both of us, we stood in our kitchen friday night, talked and drank this bottle from start to finish. greg said it had a nice nose and reminded him of cabernet sauvignon (this bottle was 80 percent shiraz, 20 percent cab), with a slight sweetness/cherry overtone to the flavor. he said the texture was smooth and that it would go well with a steak. but it was all really good by itself. victoria said it was jammy and smooth, with a line of bitterness to the end (which is common for the shiraz we've had lately). it had a slight caramel nose and was a bit sweet to the flavor. 13.5 percent alcohol. purchased at winetree. about $10.
