A Few Good Men Shiraz (2005)

A Few Good Men Shiraz 2005 is a South African Shiraz that we purchased recently at a wine shop in Traverse City, Michigan. The nose is fresh and inviting with cloves and spice. On the palate is a rich, complex wine wtih distinct undertones of pepper, spice and black cherry. The finish is very nice with a touch of black tar and leather. The tannins are smooth and silky.

It is Wednesday night and we are missing Barack Obama’s infomercial because we are still engaged in our cocktail hour (I worked late tonight) and reading the paper. For dinner tonight, I have prepared a very simple, but delicious soup. I start with ground beef and onions and add chopped tomatoes, beef broth, canneli beans, black beans, hot sauce and barley. It is simmering and I just took a loaf of whole wheat bread out of the oven. (I took a frozen whole wheat loaf out of the freezer this morning before work and let it rise all day.)

The wine is very good. A perfect mid-week quaff!

(Hi Tony! We love you and miss you!)
