Tonight I tasted the Bin 515 Shiraz Viognier. It is a newer release from Wyndham Estates, whose Bin 444 Cab Sav and Bin 555 Shiraz have been old reliables for me over the past few years. Now, I must admit that I have a bit of a soft spot for Shiraz Viognier blends in general... I just find them to have a very smooth and drinkable quality that makes them hold up well on there own. This wine is no different. At a reasonable $17 a bottle, is great value for casual weekday drinking. The Viognier helps ease the otherwise bold Shiraz grapes and adds a pleasant complexity to the wine. Well balanced and generally just yummy, this is bound to be a crowd pleaser.

Ok, for those that know me... I love my wine. Though I am far from a wine snob, I know what I like and figured that I would share some of my thoughts here. If you have any suggestions, let me know... I love suggestions!

Tonight's wine is one of my "go-to" wines. I must admit that I have a bit of an infliction for Old World, and this Cotes Du Rhone is right up my alley as an affordable middle of the week bottle. Pricing at $17, the Perrin Reserve is smooth and fruity without any of the French attitude. Goes just as well with food as it does without it. Probably one of my top '10' gift wine on short notice. Really just can't go wrong here.
