Not something I would buy again, not worth the price

Unimpressed. Flat. Very earthy with mineral tones, but lacking balance. Drinkable, but would not buy again.

Deep garnet in color with a touch of purple, the 2009 Pillar Box Red has a bit more Shiraz in the blend (68%) and presents aromas of dried mulberries and plums, anise and powdered cinnamon. Full-bodied, rich and more tannic than the others, it reveals mocha flavors aside a crisp acid line and a long, spicy finish. Drink it now to 2018+.

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+.

A blend of 68% Shiraz, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot, the 2009 Pillar Box Red has a deep garnet-purple color and pronounced aromas of warm blackberries, spiced plums and mulberries with a whiff of cassis. Full-bodied with medium-high acid and a low to medium level of soft tannins, a good amount of rich fruit, and a long spicy finish, this is one to drink now through 2013.

There are 70,000 cases of the 2005 Red, a blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot from young vines. However, this is no wimpy wine at 15% alcohol. An unbelievable value, it boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as an uplifted, projected nose of sweet red and black fruits, earth, and spice box. Supple-textured with a voluptuous mouthfeel and unbelievable richness, this wine clearly over-delivers. Enjoy it over the next 2ndash;3 years.

Deep garnet color with a slight brick hue, the 2008 Pillar Box Red reveals a dried plums, dates and raisiny nose with subtle notes of espresso and tobacco. This 66% Shiraz, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot blend is full, rich and balanced with generous fruit flavor, low to medium tannins that are a little more astringent than the 2005 and also finishes long and spicy. Drink it now to 2016.

Open textured, this is a bit gritty with tannins, but itrsquo;s generous with its meat and blackberry flavors, finishing on a savory note. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2011.
