With dark inky color and bright purple edges, the second Pillar Box Reserve, selected from the best parcels of Shiraz is a rich and densely concentrated wine.
The nose displays rich aromas of blackcurrant overlaid with spicy notes, hints of red licorice and dried herbs. The palate is tarry and ripe, with dark berries, fresh redcurrant, cloves and briary, earthy complexity. The tannins are firm, yet the palate is round, velvety and textural, leading into a refined and long finish.
"The opaque purple-colored 2007 Pillar Box Reserve Shiraz spent eight months in French and American oak. It delivers an enticing nose of cedar, spice notes, violets, black currant, and blueberry. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, plush, and layered with notes of clove, briar patch, and road tar making an appearance. Round and velvety on the palate with excellent length, it can be enjoyed now and over the next six years. It is an excellent value." 91 Points
