- 2003 Tempus Two Shiraz - Australia, New South Wales, Hunter Valley (7/26/2006)
Generic Aussie crap. Spoofulated nose with tar and a note of sweetness. The palate is also a touch sweet, almost cloying. I can see why there is a glut of grapes Down Under. This both sucks and tastes identical to all lower end Aussie Shiraz. On the plus side, there is "only" 13% abv which is quite little I guess for Aussie Crap TM and the label looks nice.
- 2005 Vigne Regali (Banfi) Brachetto d'Acqui Rosa Regale - Italy, Piedmont, Brachetto d'Acqui (7/26/2006)
What a fun little wine! Fizzy and sweet, but with a lovely bitter quality that keeps it from becoming cloying. Nothing profound, nothing intellectual, but such great fun!
