As an explanation of the bouquet thing: about two years ago I randomly lost my sense of smell for about six months (though not my sense of taste - don't know how that worked), and since it's come back, it's been really unreliable - I smell things, but not the same way as everyone else, so I distrust it as a sense. Also, while I'm uneducated but have semi-decent taste in the drinking, I'm uneducated and know shit about the smelling aspect... I also, until this year (living with a Kiwi oenophile) rarely had decent glassware.

But otherwise, I will copy down your recs and see what I can do. The last time I really cared (maybe three years ago) I was all about the Haut-Medocs, and then had about six lousy bottles in a row. I have liked the Chateauneuf-de-Papes that I've randomly tried. And I've had one or two Aussie Shirazs which were great, although it was a while ago and I have no memory of what they actually were.
