2006 Dead Letter Office Shiraz: Inky, thick, slightly fruity

nov. 20, 2010: this was the second day for this australian, which was 67 percent from mclaren vale and 33 percent from padthaway. i had bought this at varsity liquors a while ago and wasn't very impressed with it since i didn't think it was as good as the 2005. but i've changed my tune on this one. maybe it's because it's had some more time to age, or maybe the other bottle we had just wasn't a good example. but this shiraz was pretty good. it's definitely a heavier shiraz than others we've had, and it's not as sweet. would go well with a steak, i think. about $30. 15 percent alcohol.

greg said he wouldn't get it again, though he knew he was tasting it after it had already been opened for 24 hours.
