I love this wine. It's not dense or heavy like many Shiraz, which I like, because it has this elegance to it that is more uplifting rather than heavy. The little Viognier adds to the aromas and "fragrant" is the right term. Lots of berries and spice going on and something floral in the back as well. Palate is complex and lingering with all the berry-goodness a Shiraz should have, but none of the heaviness. All in balance. It's absolutely delicious.
Not only is this wine delicious, but the $14.99 price just knows it out of the park. Will definitely order again!!
Bought it because it was very popular among other buyers on the site that day, but it was awful. Must have been price driven only because it was awful. Ashy on the tongue, never opened up on the palate, no follow through. Too bad I bought three. Maybe I can cook with the other two...
Altho my wife could drink it, I found the pallete of eucalyptus to be far too strong to be enjoyable
