God hath not promised skies always blue, flower-strewn pathways all our lives through. But God hath promised strength for the day, rest for the labor, light for the way...

Koala Blue Shiraz 2001
Koala Blue Shiraz, Syrah (750ml, 13.5%)
No grease on the bottle when Olivia Newton-John hopelessly devoted to co-own the Australian Koala Blue Winery 30 years ago, in 1983. It isn't another gimmicky celebrity wines; as this is a gift, we do not know the price of the blue bottle. But the taste buds put it at the $20+ range, at least.
Definitely full-bodied yet supple with soft, velvety texture makes it a very enjoyable glass. Worthy the trouble of cellaring the adorable Koala for this special night... Cheers, Sandy.
