Full body and fruity. Can serve to guests before dinner with some cheese, veggies and crackers. Goes well with pasta as well. Not the greatest but good value.

Scents of licorice, cherry, and a bit earthy. Medium body, dry. Cherry flavor with a dusty, mocha finish.

This was a light bodied easy Shiraz but with decent average fruit flavor after it sat for awhile. Didn't have an amazing feel or taste to it. The price was great for a big dinner party.

    Grape variety: 100% ShirazVinification: To make the Fat bastard Shiraz we source wines in the Minervois area near Carcassonne, in the Pezenas sector, and in the north of Nimes. These vineyards present excellent conditions for the Shiraz vines. The stony soil and a perfect microclimate yields mature grapes with a high concentration of color and aromas.Tasting Notes: Rich and dense with complex aromas of blackberries, licorice and vanilla. Tannins are ripe and delicate.Food Pairings: A perfect match with red meat, lamb, spicy foods and full-bodied cheeses. - Winery

    Loaded with blackberries and red fruits that integrate with pepper and spice notes. Fairly complex, this wine is a complement to red meats and a great gift for your favorite fat bastard.

    This one's got the fat, my God, that's huge! Literally bursting at the seams with rich, ripe blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, cassis and plum. A smooth, velvety mouthful of goodness. Once again, it tastes like a much more expensive wine.
