The Watcher. It is an image steeped in legend and mystery. It implies transcendence and authority. The Watcher is a being of knowledge, of understanding, of concern, of influence.
At Fetish Wines, we value this level of attention to every step of the winemaking process, from the soil to the bottle. We do not want to manipulate wine, but to craft it by the subtle direction that can only be achieved through an intimate relationship with the land.
For this wine, Rolf Binder is The Watcher
"Supple, generous and deftly balanced to show plenty of ripe cherry and plum fruit, shaded with sweet spices. But there's not a lot of weight, and this finishes with elegance and restraint. Shiraz. Best from 2010 through 2020."
"The 2006 The Watcher Shiraz offers up a nose of wood-smoke, tar, blueberry, and blackberry. This leads to a thick, structured wine with excellent layering of fruit, intense flavors, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Give it 2-3 years to unfold and drink it through 2016."

Cheap, 90 points, delicious and an amazing label - what else can you ask for?
Can drink it any day of the week, with a wide variety of food. It is dry and smooth, with light caramel and chocolate taste on top of black berry, figs, and currant taste. A little light and simple on the body but not too thin due to its great flavors. Considering ordering more as house red if price drops from $13.99 to $10.99. Solid 91 if you like supple and versatile wine.
