2008 Warburn Estate Shiraz Premium Reserve
This wine was given to us by a friend who received it from the NY Times Wine Club. Nose gave up virtually nothing other than alcohol and subtle hints of plum and eucalyptus. The palate was nothing but cherry flavored, in the words of Chris Rock, "Tussin." There were some fruity elements, but it was pretty muh just a discombobulated mess. The finish had some bite, with some alcohol, and overall, it just was not a pleasant wine to me. 70 points, and I think that is being a point or two generous, but hey, at least this bottle is off of my wine inventory. One down, another 100 or so wines to thin out. This ain't Grange! Cheers!

Born in Illinois, I spent my younger years as a local Chicago Foodie checking out restaurants in the city, and working as a waiter at many of the finest restaurants in the suburbs of Chicago. Look for me visiting a restaurant near you, or at one of the many local wine offlines throughout New Jersey
