Who said “steroids”?

Funny moment at dinner last Friday when premium winemaker and diesel-powered cyclist, Sam Miranda, explained the variety of red we were enjoying was like “Shiraz on steroids.” Everyone stopped and all eyes shot across the table at our special guest, Richie Porte. The Tasmanian Athlete of the Year froze for a moment too. Then the whole room burst into laughter, 99.9% certain Sam was only joking. You were kidding right, Sam?

  1. It’s a pretty common term in wine circles. And it was a reference to the wine. So not sure what you’re 99.9% certain or uncertain of???
    (funniest thing is that the wine in question is fairly light/medium weight i.e. doesn’t really classify as shiraz on steroids.)

  2. The wine in the picture.
    But regardless … he was referring to a wine and it’s a common wine description. i.e. he wasn’t referring to cycling or said cyclist. Yeah?

  3. It’s funny all right,.
    I just didn’t understand your comment “99.9% certain Sam was only joking. You were kidding right, Sam?”
    But … as you say … whatever.
