I told the proprietor of "The Vineyard Wine Shop" I wanted "red, pacific northwest, not too dry" and gave him a price ceiling, and he pulled out McCrea 2002 Sirocco, which he described as a "fat flavorbomb".
"Fat" apparently means "not thin tasting", and "flavorbomb" apparently means "has lots of flavors".
elfs and omahas and I enjoyed it as part of Fish Friday. I ended up drinking several glasses, which, ahem, made me "warm and happy".
