Had a few bottles at a family gathering and everyone enjoyed it very much. A good all-around red at a reasonable price for this type of thing.
Like others I am scratching my head over the 91 rating. That said, this wine is very drinkable and pleasant, though I would not call it remarkable. With a medium body and low tannins, it is versatile for pairing. Berry flavors and pepper are present but not strong. I've enjoyed having this wine around as a daily sipping wine.
I don't understand the 91 rating on this wine. It'd say that it's definitely worth $10... but this is exactly the kind of wine that makes me less excited about the "90 point wines for under $20" lists.
For the incredible price this Shiraz/Cab deliver the characteristics of a good $30 bottle wine. Bought a case to mature and drink for many years. Buy it before its gone.
This wine is fantastic for an everyday red. It has a nice finish and is a super bottle for under $10. I will definately purchase again
Folie a Deux Menage a Trois Red 2006 is much better
It starts out well but goes down like cheap vodka. This is more like an 83 than a 91. I'm beginning to wonder about the validity of Robert Parker's Australian reviewer. Never met a Shiraz he didn't like.
A great red blend to serve with grilled burgers in the summer. A nice back deck party wine.
Maybe I'm just beyond scorched on Aussie Shiraz or maybe this was is an instance of extreme bottle variation (which would not be surprising for such a massive bottling as this one), but this bottle, my third, surprised me with a grapyness that left the imagination nothing to settle upon except Welch's 100% Grape Juice. The grapyness, prominent on the nose and pervassive on the palate, trumped and obscured whatever else might have been going on with this wine, except for a few simple oaky notes of vanilla and smoke. I don't recall at all that my previous two bottles, which were essentially unremarkable, were nearly so foxy as this one, but perhaps the food pairings affected the impression. Certainly not a 91 point bottle, and though one can't expect too much at this price point, instead of xsix bottles of this, I wish I'd bought 12 big jugs of Welch's 100% Grape Juice, or a half a case of something else.
