Recently drank two excellent red wines…and neither are from France?!?! Yes.
2000 Stag’s Leap Petite Syrah
I believe 2000 was a shitty year in Cali, unlike 97 or 01. There is nothing petite about this baby (ha ha ha):
it is black as pitch
mouthfilling and rich
2000 Best’s Great Western Bin 0 Shiraz
Tha Best Western…damn. Talk about a fruit bomb; it just explodes with sweet, rich, red fruit. This is what makes people nutty about Shiraz.
