I was pleasantly surprised when I opened my 2009 Charles Shaw Shiraz father's day gift from my lovely Daughter Holly. After a chill in the Nordge and then letting it breathe for a little while, I was overwhelmed by it's complexities. So smoothly fruity with a tiny bite of spice. It went well with the Oscar Meyer All Beef Hot Dog's that I made for dinner. I'm sure it would go well also with other more exspensive form's of Red Meat. I just can't afford to buy it anymore. Don't skimp on the Wine. Skimp on the Meat. Cheer's!!

For the $3 I paid for this bottle, I'm hard pressed to find anything else that matches the value for money, especially in the $10 and under range. I've always stuck with Echelon and Rosenblum Syrah at around $8 to $10 a pop, but this is just as good and possibly even easier to drink. I honestly can't think of anything until you get to the Kendall Jackson Syrah at about $13-15 a bottle that I'd rather drink than this.

Lightly sour aroma and sharply sour flavor with a good amount of tannic bitterness. Pretty harsh, but still fruity. Not good, but drinkable, and super cheap.

My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised with this Shiraz. It was full bodied but soft, no harsh tannins; extremely drinkable.

I opened my 2007 Shiraz Sept 15, 2010. Over three years of aging must have done this wine well. It is delicately sour with a beautiful 'black olive' note. Zero bitterness or harshness, just right body, and extremely smooth. The fruity flavor causes me to have visions of glistening perfectly ripe grapes on the vine on a cool summer morning. I am enjoying every taste of it, at this very moment. I can tell it will go, not just well, but very well with a great variety of meals. I wish I had a cellar full. I honestly don't think I have ever been so impressed by a wine's character as this, regardless of cost or variety. Those who tasted it at a younger age should come back and experience it in it's maturity!

I am not a huge fan of Shiraz, but this one pleasantly surprised me. Went down very smooth. I went out and bought another bottle, 2008 and can't wait to see how it compares.

<p>This budget wine from Trader Joe's well-known Charles Shaw line is very drinkable and would pair well with classic American fare.</p>
