I love the idea of a wine named after a wrestler. Even though I'm not personally a fan (despite growing up in Memphis, an influential city in pro-wrestling history), there's something about the pageantry, over-the-top acting, and stock characters that is reminiscent of a stylized artform like commedia dell'arte. In the Mexican tradition, such garish grapplers are known as luchadores.
The 2006 R Wines Luchador Shiraz is yet another amusingly-labeled wine from the folks at The Grateful Palate. $16, 15.5% abv. 95% Shiraz and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from the McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley of South Australia. Vegetal nose with hints of grass clippings. Blackberry, cherry, and plum flavors, with a back end of spice. Firm, drying tannins.
This is a great burger or pizza wine, and would be fun to take to a party. Some people get tired of the puns and silly labels on some wines, but when you have so many others that are intimidated by the general concept of wine, every little bit helps.
