This Australian wine (~$13) from New South Wales packs an explosive amount of fruit up front, yet it also has a good amount of body. The mouth feel is almost chewy. I'm making homemade pizza with roasted peppers and fresh mozzarella. I believe I'll enjoy both food and wine tonight.
Shiraz (or Syrah) is always a fun grape. I love the intense purple of the grape, but I also have to live with the wine staining my teeth for the night. The price one pays for deliciousness.
