Quick Swirl: Sterling Vineyards 2001 Vintner’s Collection Shiraz (PB)

This is a full flavored, fully mature wine that is rich and jammy with lush plummy flavors of raisins and plums. Tannins are velvety if a bit underplayed. Superb with venison steaks seared in olive oil served rare. At $14, this is NICE. *D-licious!

We popped this cork because we just learned that our daughter, son-in-law (NW of this blog) and brand spanking new grandson are moving about a thousand miles closer. Did this celebration effect our objectivity of the taste of this wine? So what if it did??? Ahhhhhhhhhh, raise a glass; life is good!

Note* I just checked Wine Spectator's review of this wine and they gave it an 82. I gave it an 86. The only thing that matters is how YOU liked the wine--remember that!

Glad to have found your blog, but it would be even better if you had an RSS feed. I'm trying to follow so many great sites that it helps if I can scan a bunch of entries at once. Does Blogspot allow you to add an RSS feed? It would increase your readership, I'm sure...
