Pillar Box Padthaway Red 2009
Black cherry and vibrant dark berry fruits provide a lifted perfume, combined with the peppery notes, toasted spice and hints of cedar. Complimentary musk and earthiness add to the complexity of the aromas in this wine. The palate shows opulent ripe, yet fresh blackberries with plum fruit, dark chocolate and liquorice characters; as well as a hint of spearmint. The wine is rich and full bodied, but has an elegant soft texture throughout and fine tannins that carry the fruit into a lingering finish.

A blend of 68% Shiraz, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot, the 2009 Pillar Box Red is deep garnet in color with a remaining touch of purple. It presents aromas of dried mulberries and warm plums with an undercurrent of anise and powdered cinnamon. Full-bodied and concentrated in flavor, it’s a little more tannic than the previous vintages with refreshing acidity and a long mocha laced finish. Drink it now to 2014+.
