Weekend Wine Reviews #83 ~ Mad Dogs and Englishmen

Mad Dogs & Englishmen

Mad Dogs & Englishmen, 2008, Shiraz, Tempranillo, and Carignan.  This was a gift from middle daughter’s darling boyfriend.  Can we pause for a minute and say that our admiration can totally be bought by giving us wine.   They say:  ripe raspberry and black fruit aromas and flavors with hints of black pepper, cinnamon, and vanilla oak.  We say:  dry, light, black pepper and berry, nice and complex.  Buy again:  yes!!

Coco is perfectly camouflaged!

I'm a sucker for humour or other interesting twists in a wine label, so I'd buy this one for the name alone. Mad Dogs & Englishmen, love it.
Your middle daughter's boyfriend is a smart guy ;-)

Wasn't that the name of something to do with Joe Cocker? An album or his band? Just wondering.
