Arizona and 2006 Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz/Viognier

Arizona breakdown - Frankly, we're not sure how Arizona got here and we're a little upset that St. Mary's missed out (doesn't get much easier than pairing an Australian wine with Patty Mills...). But we're sure they'll be determined to prove the naysayers wrong, and they just might do it if their three key players (Chase Budinger, Jordan Hill and Nic Wise) can put up big numbers and return the Wildcats to the winning ways of the early season.

2006 Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz/Viognier - Blending red wine (Shiraz) and white wine (Viognier) seems a bit odd, and might leave you wondering what they're thinking. But once you get over your initial shock and try it out, you can smell the big floral difference just a splash of Viognier makes, turning this into a well rounded, lush and delicious wine. Hopefully Arizona can prove they deserve to be here just like the Viognier.
