2004 Razor's Edge Shiraz ($12) -- 100% McLaren Vale, Australia. This is the inaugural vintage of a second label from the producers of Two Hands I was told. I haven't been able to confirm this yet in a web search (but I did learn much about Bill Muray's forgettable 1984 film!), but the story makes sense as the two wines are imported by Joshua Tree Imports.
This wine is a great value with soft fruit flavors and a medium finish without any of the pepper nuances I get with some Australian Shiraz wines. This should be a very good wine with food and is pleasant enough to quaff. Yes, it is very quaffable and soft. Sorry, I am stuck on that adjective for this wine. This wine has structure and balance with the tannins well hidden. Probably will not age long, so drink up. I couldn't find much in the way of production notes, just some cute story about the origin of the wine's name. At least they didn't put a cute animal on the label!
Well, I am off to root for the Denver Broncos in the AFC game. Sorry Lenn, it was a cheap shot! And if the Steelers do win at least I have half a bottle of Razor's Edge left, so I could slit my wrists.
