My Rating 91: Nose restrained and extremly well balanced elegant. Body is silky with also very good balance. Fruit is likeable and not overdone like in many Australiens. A bargain!

04/07/10 The bottle was opened at about 8:00, and left open for two and a half hours. Deep garnet color with thick, long-lasting legs along the side of the glass. Strawberry candy (strawberry bon bons?), dark cherry, and blueberry jam come through on the nose, followed by some heat on the backend. The mouth feel is surprisingly watery, considering the consistency of the legs on the glass, with light, nicely balanced tannins. A delicious touch of blueberries and cherries on the initial attack, which quickly dissipates. The mid-palate is very weak, with barely discernable notes of evergreen or spearmint flavors beneath blueberry and darker fruits. The fairly long finish delivers a bitter punch of overwhelming dark cherries with milk chocolate, accompanied by charcoal or tar flavors in the aftertaste. Overall an enjoyable, solid wine, but not very challenging or unique. Not a wine I would return to in the future.

The 2007 Pillar Box Red, a blend of 65% Shiraz, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Merlot. Purple-colored, it exhibits an expressive nose of spice box, earth notes, blueberry, and black currant. Ripe, sweet, and layered, this nicely rendered red has exceptional balance and length for its humble price. Production of this wine has climbed above 100,000 cases, which makes its quality all the more remarkable. Dark chocolate and blueberry aromas lead into flavors that stay in that same vein: chocolate, coffee, tinges of black olive. Its full-bodied and rather dense on the palate, finishing with hints of espresso. Drink now. - J.C.
