"The 2005 Shiraz was aged in French and American oak for 12 months. Purple-colored, it is very expressive, with a nose of smoke, spice box, blackberry, and blueberry jam. Layered, supple-textured, sweet, and full-bodied, this seamless, crowd-pleasing wine offers a remarkably long finish for its humble price. Drink this awesome value over the next 6-8 years. The Boarding Pass label is just that, a dead ringer for an airplane boarding pass. According to Dan Philips, it is like going on a trip to Australia without leaving home while the First Class is a luxury upgrade. Aside from the humor, these two wines have more in common with Fed-Ex, delivering the goods right on time. R Wines is a new company founded by importer and marketing genius, Dan Philips, along with co-owner, renowned winemaker, Chris Ringland."
I bought this wine because of the humorous label and the rating. Would be fun to bring as a hostess gift and would not disappoint anyone with the full flavor. Great gift bottle
Fantastic almost inky color, full bodied red. Tastes like a much more expensive wine. Only con: very corny label.
Great everyday drinking wine.
Looking at the label we did not expect much from this wine. It was kinda like going out on Halloween and expecting those little bite size candies that you usually get but every once in a while you run into that house that that gives you the full size candy bar…now that is exciting!! http://www.justagrape.com/boarding-pass-australia-2005/
Nothing like a good muscular Shiraz with some red meat. A very good fruit forward, big australian red.
