from ABC - $20Heavy alcohol, but not in an unpleasant way. I see what all of the fuss is about... both good and bad. I really liked it (would like to try '05). Think it's more of a straight up wine(tho w/ cheese was good). A smack in the face. Milk chocolate nose. Plums, rich dark fruits, very smooth tannins. A bomb alcohol finish.

This is a great everyday drinker. The flavors are intense, just like a great shiraz should be. Its rich with mocha, red fruit and chocolate. A deal at $20!
Oh my - This is a big boy Shiraz. Fruit bomb and OTT alcohol. But I LIKE IT :-)
On my third tasting of this extremely powerul offering, I lowered my rating a bit. It didn't seem to handle the high alcohol content as well as I had recalled. While still impressively dense and muscular, it seemed a bit hot.
Better than the companion, "Two Left Feet", this is one of the best $20 Shiraz bottles I've tried. Incredibly fruity, though a little tight right out of the bottle. Let this one open up for perhaps an hour and enjoy! Dark, inky, deep flavor, great finish.
