A nice, full-bodied shiraz at a great price. It's become our house red wine.
Mmmmmm. Excellent Aussie Shiraz, beautifully crafted. This is big and round. Smokey spice, with a wonderfully long finish. I've ordered another case for my cellar - but don't think I'll have the strength to hold off long enough for this to reach its peak.
A little too bitter, but should smooth out if aged. Earthy, smoky aroma with hints of tobacco; medium body with robust flavors of black berries, oak, and pepper.
Don't get me wrong...if you ARE looking for a basic table wine (much like the other comment), it is well worth it. For me, I think there are better options out there that reach beyond this table wine status. 14.5% was surprisingly balanced, but I thought the finish was unremarkable. Could you grab something with more flavor, aroma, and "intensely concentrated fruits" (as the bottle states) at your local store? - You bet. That said, it is what it is, and if you are looking for a basic table red, throw down the credit card.
