Jip Jip Rocks Shiraz Cabernet video review

Hi there, and thanks for stopping by. I’ve decided to take all of the wine related content from my other blog, and post it in a place it belongs. I’ll start with this post, which is new, and slowly migrate the older ones here as well.

Today I’m showcasing a video review of Jip Jip Rocks, and their outstanding Australian Shiraz/Cabernet blend. Produced by the Bryson family, it comes from what I understand to be one of the three remaining privately owned vineyards in the area, as the rest are owned by big producers. The is rated a 90 point Wine Advocate wine, and I can see why.

Wine Review – CMS Red

CMS Bottle

It’s been too long. Not since I’ve had wine, but since I wrote and shared about it. I have wine JUST about every night. Often times I am so wrapped up in enjoying it, that I forget to write down my notes. I decided not to do that today.

After a fabulous day at the beach, SANS BEERS, we came home to relax. After a quick nap, I decided to take The J to see Speed Racer. I had *NO* desire, but I took him anyway. Well, after less than an hour he decided he was scared and wanted to go. We came home and Robin knew how to make it all better. Robin had half a glass of the red from last night left over, and she wanted some more to sip on before dinner. CMS got the call up. It was time for The Show. She laid out some Brie and french bread, and I cracked a bottle of CMS Red. The J didn’t partake, but I did make a J-Tini out of Sprite and “Cherry Syrup”.
