le wine blog™ - Going, going, gone

If you like Côte-Rôtie, syrah, Aussie shiraz, or just the best damn wine you'll drink in your life, I strongly urge you to go grab some of the 2004 Clonakilla shiraz viognier while it lasts. The Wine Exchange got in a few cases yesterday morning, sold most of it before 10 PM, and now they're down to 15 bottles as of right this minute.

Me, I tasted it from barrel last March with jcoldrey and Dan.

It... is worth the money, unequivocally. It is as transformative an experience as you can expect in life. I still get shivers thinking about what that wine tastes like.
