  • Pillar Box Red 2012


    A robust wine that emits blackberry, slight oak, pepper and spice, anise and blueberry on the nose. The palate follows nicely with the blackberry and dark cherry turning slightly sweetish when then tannins push through. Good acidity lends to a full aftertaste that sails.

  • Parsons Flat Cabernet-Shiraz Blend Padthaway Shiraz Cabernet 2007


    The 2007 Parsons Flat is by far the favorite wine for both me and my wife. I am down to my last 3 bottles and that makes me sad. I hope I can find something else as good as I no longer see Parsons Flat anywhere. Read More
