A perennial Best Buy in these pages, the 2008 Pillar Box Red does not disappoint. A blend of 66% Shiraz, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 9% Merlot, it is purple-colored with an enticing nose of cherry blossom, cinnamon, blueberry, and licorice. Ripe and rich for its humble price, it has plenty of savory fruit, good balance, and a seamless, fruit-filled finish. (66% shiraz, 25% cabernet sauvignon and 9% merlot) Glass-staining ruby. Ripe blueberry and boysenberry aromas, with a smoky undertone. Round, jammy black and blue fruit flavors stay just this side of candied and show no rough edges. A subtle note of bitter chocolate adds grip. This rich wine lacks complexity but delivers plenty of supple fruit. Firm in texture, with smoky tobacco notes around a chewy core of black cherry and licorice. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2012. 122,000 cases made. -HS ** Only 7 in Stock **
