    Winemaker's Notes:

    Bruno Tait is not what we would call ‘politically correct'. He is however, a great winemaker, and this hedonistic fruit bomb is a tribute to his wife Michelle. Good on ya, Bruno. You've just got to see the front and back label to appreciate the humour!

    "The deep ruby/purple-colored 2002 The Ball Buster (a blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot) reveals a knock-out nose of creosote, tar, blackberries, and cassis. This thick, juicy, in-your-face red is not for those who enjoy European restraint and delicacy. However, readers looking for a hedonistic, full throttle, thrill-a-sip beverage will enjoy this awesome wine... Drink it over the next 4-5 years. Importers Ken Onish and John Gorman told me that proprietor Bruno Tait likes his wines "pitch black and packed with stuffing," which is somewhat of an understatement."
