CARNELIAN

NEW!
Madfish Margaret River Carnelian 2006
$24; 14.5% alcohol; screw cap; 73 points
I can’t see the carnelian climbing through the half-hearted grapeyard tenders and winery hose-draggers here. I’d love to blame the poor bugger on a cork, but the sanitary screw cap indicates that this has been fairly dull, unloved wine from its conception. The grapes are dead. The wine is almost sour. Tip some money on your carnelian brers, and some love, or you’ll kill it. For everyone. But see? You still got seven outa ten! JAN 09
