2006 Bleasdale The Broad-Side Langhorne Creek Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon blend: Greg liked it, Vic not so much


april 9, 2010: we had this australian with grilled green onion brats from the newburgh butcher shop, spinach and fried red creamer potatoes with garlic, shallots, salt and herbs de provence seasoning.

greg liked this wine, which he said had a slight blackberry nose with a silky, smooth texture. the flavor was berry. victoria thought this wine was inky and concentrated, with a slight bitterness and acidity even as it came across as powerful. it became more flavorful as it warmed up in the glass, though it was still not that distinctive. there was a line of bitterness to it that she doesn't want to revisit. victoria wouldn't get this wine again, but greg would.

14.5 percent alcohol, $11.74 at sam's club.
