Rex-Goliath Shiraz (2010)

I’m still in the throes of moving into my new digs here at Oenophilogical.  Interesting what you discover in the process of moving.  This is another non-vintage selection from an inexpensive California wine house.  As this was an NV pick, you will want to know that it was bought and drunk (and originally posted at Blogarhythms) in September of 2010.

Here is a fun non-vintage Shiraz from California.

Vineyard:     Rex-Goliath
Varietal:       Shiraz
Vintage:       NV
Appellation: California
Price:          $6.99

Notes:  Nice medium-bodied non-vintage selection from HRM Rex-Goliath.  Some may be turned away by the image of a giant 47 pound cock on the label, but that shouldn’t stop anyone.  After all, it’s free range!  [Yes, that was my attempt at humor.]  I found the wine pleasant with dark currant and ripe strawberry flavors, a hint of licorice, and pepper near the finish.  It has modest tannins which lend it just enough structure to hold up well to many kinds of cuisine.
