Bredan,Check out this Freakanomics episode: http://www.freakonomics.com/2012/02/27/the-days-of-wine-and-mouses-a-new-freakonomics-radio-podcast/The show is on wine tasting, very, very interesting.BTW thanks for this blog, I base my TJ wine buys on your opinion.Jim
I picked up a bottle of this because I love South African reds, particularly Shiraz. WOW, what an incredible wine, especially for the price. Leather, tobacco, and cigar-box nose, with tons of blackberry and cassis on the palate. Very soft tannins, and the wine held up perfectly over two days with nothing but a cork. I'm sure it could last even longer, but it won't get a chance. I'll be stocking up on this one soon!
