Forgot to review this while drinking it but I wasn't blown away. Less fruit than I typically expect from an Aussie Shiraz (probably because of the Cabernet in there). It was drinkable, and I'd buy it again in a pinch, but for $10 I think there are better wines out there.

A pretty impressive bargain. Big smokey, oaky dry fruits with a good deal of complexity to keep things interesting. If you're a cab lover this bottle will do you no wrong.

    I got it on sale for 5.99. An amazing bargain, nothing fancy but a good solid cab at these bargain prices.

    Big and bold, but slightly too tannic for my taste.

    Deep ruby. Smoky cherry and blueberry aromas are complicated by notes of licorice and espresso. Deep, chewy dark berry flavors are framed by supple tannins and given a bitter edge by anise and cherry pit qualities. Just a bit ungiving right now.

    Lithe and appealing for its gentleness, focusing its raspberry, currant and dusky herb flavors into a lovely beam that shines through a refined finish. Drink now through 2009.

    Blackberry and plum fruit on the nose with menthol and licorice notes, plus cherry, chocolate and black olive. Round and seamless, with fleshy berry fruit and fine tannins. A real red!

    A touch of gaminess weaves through the solid cherry and spice flavors, finishing with an open texture. Drink now.

    Inky violet color. Cassis, cherry and tobacco on the nose. Showing its cabernet element right now, offering zesty red- and blackcurrant flavors and a bitter cherry pie quality. Tannins frame the sweet fruit on the finish, which is attractively sweet, focused and persistent.

    Very dark. Powerful roasted-almond aromas, licorice, currant and smoke; warm and generous. Tastes supple, with ample fruit and sturdy tannins. Very dry. The bland is 80% Shiraz and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Inky purple. Blackberry jam and plum preserves on the nose, with a subtle smoky element adding complexity. Creamy and a touch sweet, offering deep dark berry flavors and slow-building tannins. The smoky note repeats on the finish, which is nicely persistent and noticeably sweet. This crowd-pleaser is ready to drink.
