James Oatley Tic Tok Shiraz 2009, Australia

Food Pairing
Grilled red meats or hamburgers

The cute name is a tribute to winery founder Bob Oatley's great-great-grandfather, a convict pardoned in part for his skills as a clockmaker. Full-bodied, with an initial burst of blueberry, this red finds lively balance in a blast of cracked pepper – it's friendly and feisty. Try it with grilled red meats or hamburgers. ($16.99 in B.C., $19.99 in N.S., various prices in Alberta.)
