I have been a bit absent and remiss in publishing reviews. So in an attempt to correct that now, get ready for a whole bunch at once!!

Starting with the 2011 Purple Moon Shiraz. Honestly I was hesitant to try this because of the label. Obviously this is a personal taste kind of thing and usually I try to be objective. Fortunately, my paramour convinced me that since we are trying really bargain wines at the moment. I am so happy I listened to him. It is a delicious wine and we have it often in our rotation.

Fruit forward, jammy, brambley,  blackberries. Single note structure true to ShirazPurple Moon 2011 Shiraz, with well balanced tannins. Straight forward. Not complex, daily drinking. For a $3.99 wine it’s great.
