Winemaker's Notes

"The 2006 Shiraz is composed of 46% McLaren Vale, 44% Riverland, and 10% Barossa Valley fruit. It was aged in seasoned French and American oak for 12 months. Opaque purple-colored, it has a nose of cedar, spice box, and blueberry. Fruit-driven, supple-textured, rich, and easygoing, the wine has remarkable class for its giveaway price. It actually has 2-3 years of aging potential but no one that I know is going to defer their gratification. Strong Arms has been bottled with 6 different but similarly themed labels."
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Complex, bold, balanced with loads of fruit. Superior value. Another winner from Sparky Marquis.

I am continually impressed by many of the value-priced Shiraz and Shiraz blends, and this is a great example. Opens with fruit, spicy in the mid-palate, with a surprisingly long finish and manageable tannins...a value at twice the price. I am very curious to see how it develops in a couple of years, and will save 3 or 4 bottles.

This Shiraz is tasty straightforward representation of this varietal which would be a value at even twice the price.
