Charles Shaw Shiraz Wine Review
It might not be award winning, but how does it rate with the Wine Goof?
I tend to prefer red wines to white wines, so this Shiraz is already at an advantage. Being a two buck chuck wine means it is (1) inexpensive and (2) questionable.
Inexpensive, of course, doesn't always mean cheap (a.k.a. gross), but it also does not guarantee that it is a decent wine. The only real way to find out, naturally, is to give it a taste.

The Wine Goof's Review
This is a fairly good wine. I might even go so far as to say it is one of my favorites. It is subtly sweet (not too sweet, but just enough to not be tart). I like sipping on this wine while eating cheese dishes or with a vibrantly flavorful salad. It also goes well with some dark chocolate.
This Shiraz is perfect to sip on while sitting around chatting with friends. It has a light flavor that compliments anything else you might be consuming. I recently served it with a salmon dish--and it was a hit.
I give it: Four Fingers
