Oracle of the Sun Shiraz
By unixman on Jul 08, 2009
They say wine is made by taking a bunch of grapes and crushing them together ...to produce great tasting results (in most cases). California is the number 1 state in wine production in the US. How interesting, then, is the following: A few holiday weekends ago I walked into a local liquor store (to do a Solaris deep-dive) and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a bottle of South African Shiraz with a label: "Oracle of the Sun". Although the Shakespearean reference to "What's in a name?" blazed through my mind at first, I instantly gravitated toward buying a bottle! Now, I have not opened it yet and shall probably be tasting it in the near future at one of the upcoming personal events. In the meantime, I searched for it on the 'net and found it being sold here (among, likely, many other places). How interesting, indeed.
