R Wines Shiraz Strong Arms 2006

Member Review by trecker:

This wine is a deep red. The nose was difficult for me to discern - maybe a blackberry but very earthy. The flavor included a touch of black licorice. It went great with grilled steaks.

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Another winner from R Wines. Bold, Big, Robust. Kind of like an Aussie from down under. Drink now but hold one bottle for a year and see if it softens up.

The 2006 Shiraz is composed of 46% McLaren Vale, 44% Riverland, and 10% Barossa Valley fruit. It was aged in seasoned French and American oak for 12 months. Opaque purple-colored, it has a nose of cedar, spice box, and blueberry. Fruit-driven, supple... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from Southeast Australia in Australia. 2006 R Wines Strong Arms Shiraz 750ml
