Charles Shaw Shiraz California 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Lovingly nicknamed “Two Buck Chuck” by a member of the wine press, these California wines have become something of a phenomenon in the wine world, and in our stores. Contrary to many an urban legend, these super-value wines began as the result of an oversupply of wine and a great relationship with a valued supplier. They’ve become the nation’s best-selling wines, not surprising when you consider the combination of low price ($1.99 - $3.49 per bottle, depending on the region) and great taste Charles Shaw wines offer. Depending on the season and the quality of wine available, our selection of Charles Shaw varietals will vary, but the quality never will

Wicked tannins and tasted a little astringent. Became drinkable after a little bit. But certainly not impressive.

Fruit, black pepper, lemons and the tannins are pretty harsh. Deep purple hue, good body, drinkable. Great deal-

Drinkable for a bargain wine, though it had a sweet and sour thing going on with it. Great for Chinese food, terrible for a wine.
