2008 Man O’ War Dreadnought Syrah. Waiheke Island, N.Z. 14%


Sneezy pepper, green capsicum.

Bovril and very meaty.

Who sprayed the fly spray into the bottle?

Bitter, chewy tannins.

Very short on the palate.

Had a mouthful of this with my dinner companion, stood up, grabbed our glasses and poured the rest away.

Dived into the cellar to pull something else out.

Tasted 6th December 2012

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
