John Wine Snob says:
An Australian man once asked me, “In America, what is a bison?” I said it is a buffalo.
“Right.” He said. “Do you know what it is in Australia?”
“No.” Said I
He said, “ A bison is a plaice where an Australian washes his faice.”
That has nothing to do with the Black Swan Shiraz Merlot 2008 from Australia. I just wanted to tell that story.
The Black Swan Shiraz Merlot tastes a little like the lair of a wallaby. I was not at all impressed by this wine. I just did not get it. There was some oddball taste from sip one that never went away. It might go well with a grilled emu, but otherwise you can keep it down under as far as I am concerned.
I will give it one star.
