Like Drinking a Tree

Ross Estate
Barossa Valley Shiraz

This is our second bottle of Ross Estate’s ’01 Shiraz. We were impressed the first time by the big, dark fruits and balanced tannins. This bottle is woodier, and at 14% alcohol, the fruit is overwhelmed. We’ll let it sit a day with nitrogen to see if some of the oak blows off.

Cost: $17

Update, day two: pure dreck. This wine cleaned our drain.
