Tait The Ball Buster 2002
from Barossa Valley, Australia
Bruno Tait is not what we would call ‘politically correct'. He is however, a great winemaker, and this hedonistic fruit bomb is a tribute to his wife Michelle. Good on ya, Bruno. You've just got to see the front and back label to appreciate the humour!
"The deep ruby/purple-colored 2002 The Ball Buster (a blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot) reveals a knock-out nose of creosote, tar, blackberries, and cassis. This thick, juicy, in-your-face red is not for those who enjoy European restraint and delicacy. However, readers looking for a hedonistic, full throttle, thrill-a-sip beverage will enjoy this awesome wine... Drink it over the next 4-5 years. Importers Ken Onish and John Gorman told me that proprietor Bruno Tait likes his wines "pitch black and packed with stuffing," which is somewhat of an understatement."

Very smooth and rich red wine. Even the non-red wine drinkers in the group enjoyed it!

I'm a Merlot drink, but we had this w/ Xmas Ham. Excellent, very robust flavor!
I'm buying more!
