Dry and woodsy on the nose with more wood than fruit. Sweet on entry with a loose, rather soft feel. There are nice sweet berry flavors accented with a touch of peppery spice but the tannins are drying and rob the mid-palate of its appeal. The finish is dry, woody and raw with light carob flavors. 78pts

My Rating 88: Nose is excellent and long with berries galore plus yes some wood! Ok with me. Wine would get a much higher rating if not for the taste. It's short taste very dry with to much acid on the palate. So I would rate the taste 82 and the nose 95.

Fantastic, spicey, medium tannins. Great with steak or grilled red meat of almost any kind.

Bleh. Easily the worst wine I've had in as long as I can remember. I have dumped out the bottle.

This is a good everyday wine for the price. Lots of fruit aromas. The taste is soft with moderate tannins, low acidity, mild spice, and a touch of fruit sweetness. The finish is medium-long with hints of pepper.

a little dry but this is something that has come to be expected from a shiraz w/in this price range for me. not heavy on the wine tasting experience but i've become fond of the woodsy taste so i would have to refute Gregory's review. i like the woodsy taste. although i paid 3x as much in china for read more...this bottle i think this would be pretty good for a $12 bottle

Great spicy Shiraz. Medium finish and lower acidity. Very good for low price

Bright and lively, with light, crisp tannins around a juicy core of black cherry, mineral and tar flavors. Drink now through 2013. 15,000 cases imported. -HS ** SOLD OUT **

Smooth and generous, with pretty plum and cherry flavors. Drink now.

Intense plum and berry fruit with classic spicy Shiraz notes, married to the leafy, mint and chocolate of Cabernet Sauvignon and a hint of vanillin oak. The palate is medium-bodied, with generous cherry/berry fruits and spicy plum flavors complemented by well-integrated, subtle, mouth-filling chocolate tannins and a soft, balanced finish.


External Review

Smooth and open-textured, with cherry and savory red pepper flavors that mingle effectively on the mineral-tinged profile, lingering against refined tannins on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2014.

Offers juicy, attractive plum fruit at a good price, and finishes with red clay flavors. It's forward and accessible, not complicated but still very good.


External Review

Smooth and generous, a polished style with blackberry and cherry flavors at the center, persisting into a fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2006.

Round and supple, this shows relatively moderate ripeness, which means black fig and green peppercorn flavors that keep it fresh. A good, firm red for anything off the grill.

Winemaker's Notes:

This Shiraz is a medium bodied wine with generous aromas of pepper, licorice and plum, leaving a soft textured finish on the palate. At our place this wine is enjoyed with great gusto alongside beef, lamb, chicken and amongst friends.
