"I don't have kids, but if I did have kids, I'd rather they knew how to have sex than how to beat a police officer to death with a dildo."

- from an editorial published last week in the Sydney Morning Herald; as of today, GTA has been officially banned in Australia 'because it contains pornographic material.'

The 2000 Syrah Lytton Estate is easily one of the best wines I've ever tasted; I was fortunate enough to share a bottle with Julian earlier this year in Sydney.

I'm hoping the 2003 will be every bit as amazing. Best of all, this is one of the rare wines that is - I believe - seriously underpriced given its quality. This is worth buying if you're even remotely a fan of Rhône wines in general, and definitely worth buying if you like the Côte-Rôtie style [there's some viognier in this syrah].
