Pillar Box White Blend Australia South Australia Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Red 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Pillar Box Red has a dark colour and a vibrant purple hue, with aromas of fresh blueberry fruit, liquorice, dried mint and cinnamon oak undertones. The palate is dense and juicy, with flavours of fresh blackcurrant and cherry combined with aniseed, dried thyme and mocha oak characters. The wine is rich and full bodied, well balanced and seamless with soft, persistent tannins.

My Rating 87: Full body but somehow leaning to a big valley jug wine. Pleasant to drink. nose is fruity and lively. I liked the previous vintage better but this is still a good deal !

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

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, itandrsquo;s a little more tannic than the previous vintages with refreshing acidity and a long mocha laced finish. Drink it now to 2014+.

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.

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.

Ruby red. Aromas of smoky grilled meat, dark cherry, plum and licorice candy are lifted by alcohol and show a distinctly herbal cabernet tone. Fat and broad in the mouth, with sweet, candied berry, plum and cherry flavors complicated by hints of cracked pepper and violet pastille. Finishes on a tangier, red fruit note of cranberry, with no noticeable tannins.

Toasty oak and hint of clove at the nose give way to a body of plush, sweet blackberries and plums with hints of eucalyptus. Outstanding complexity for a wine of this price!

Supple, generous and elegant in style, with a distinctive foxy edge to the currant and boysenberry flavors as the finish lingers enticingly. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now.

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 2-3 years.
