Tait The Ball Buster
We’re ending this roundup with a wine that technically shouldn’t be on this list because it’s $1 over the $20 limit, but dangit, it’s too good to ignore (on many levels). With this Australian Shiraz dominant red blend, the name says it all. Its above-average 15.5% ABV kicks things up a notch. It’s extremely bold and acidic with tasty dark fruit, leather, and chocolate notes that go great with a greasy dinner. Tait Ball Buster is an excellent wine to try if you’re looking to spice things up literally and figuratively.
