this shiraz is really fruity, spicy, peppery, full of kick! it really needs to be paired carefully, though--it will overpower most things. it just begs for a really good deer sausage!

Although is is a 91 pt wine according to one expert, I found it in the N.H. Liguor Outlet drastically reduced to $9/bottle from $20. I thought it was o.k. but certainly not a 91pt wine. It reminded me of the jug wines we used to buy years ago. There had to be some reason it was not selling! Would be good to use as a red sangria base.

Vanilla, oaky, spicy, cherry nose. Flavors are smooth, lightly spiced with hints of chocolate, and nice round smooth silky tannins.

Wow ... opened a bottle of this last night and was blown away. I gave this a 4.5 out of 5 simply because at the price point this is an amazing wine. Value wise I'd be hard pressed to find something better. Throw in great packaging and this is just a great everyday wine.

Great wine that is drinkable by white and red wine lovers. Good flavors could drink this all night.

The deep crimson-colored 2006 First Class Shiraz contains a dollop of Viognier. It was barrel-fermented and aged in new and one year French and American oak for 18 months. It has an alluring bouquet of cedar, mineral, tobacco, smoked meat, and blueberry. This leads to a full-bodied Shiraz with enough structure to evolve for 2ndash;3 years. It has excellent depth, savory black fruit flavors, plenty of spice, and a lengthy finish. It will offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2020.

The 2007 Boarding Pass Shiraz contains 5% Viognier which provides a floral lift to its Cote-Rotie-like bouquet of bacon, smoked meat, and blueberry. Seamless, complex, and layered on the palate, it is way too good to sell for $18. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2007 R Winery Boarding Pass Shiraz 750ml

The pricier 2007 Boarding Pass First Class Shiraz was aged for 18 months in French and American oak. It exhibits a glass-coating opaque purple color, an expressive nose of smoke, lavender, bacon, and licorice leading to a structured, slightly lean Shiraz that should evolve for 2andndash;3 years and will hopefully fill out its frame.

The 2005 Shiraz ldquo;First Classrdquo; was barrel-fermented and aged for 18 months in new and 1 year French and American oak. More complex aromatically, it has a lovely bouquet of toast, smoke, cedar, lavender, blueberry, and blackberry. Opulent, velvety, and seamless, it has great depth, spicy blue and black fruit flavors with hints of licorice and chocolate, and a very long finish. Drink it over the next 10 years. The Boarding Pass label is just that, a dead ringer for an airplane boarding pass. According to Dan Philips, it is like going on a trip to Australia without leaving home while the First Class is a luxury upgrade. Aside from the humor, these two wines have more in common with Fed-Ex, delivering the goods right on time.

Amply endowed at 15.5% abv, this is a full-bodied, rich and velvety example of McLaren Vale Shiraz from winemaker Chris Ringland. The menthol, vanilla and black cherry notes are straightforward but pure, with nothing to distract from the bold fruit and tasty oak. Drink nowandndash;2015.
