Brooding, blackberry fruit and dried mint aromas intermingle with dark chocolate, licorice spice, hints of pepper and cedary oak on the nose. The palate exhibits flavours of fresh black and blueberry fruit, toasted dark spice and hints of spearmint. A seamless wine; displaying balance and a fine, long tannin structure.
"Velvety and ripe, offering dark berry and licorice flavors that glide smoothly through the finish. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot."
"The current release 2010 Pillar Box Red is a blend of 68% Shiraz, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot, displaying a deep garnet-purple color and fragrant notes of warm cassis and blackberries, violets and dried mint with a hint of red roses. Rich, full, well balanced and nicely textured with a medium level of velvety tannins, it has balanced acidity lending just enough lift in the long finish. "
