Razor's Edge Shiraz Blend Mclaren Vale Shiraz-Grenache 2006

Member Review by PennyWizz:

Good bargain, good Shiraz blend. Dry enough for the Shiraz fans, and the Grenache gives it a nice balance. I didn't think I'd like it as much as a straight Shiraz, but it's darn close. Blend of peppery and dark berries.

A very nice wine for the money. Toned down the spicy shiraz with the grenache. Best of both worlds. WS 91 points on a budget and sure to please most drinkers.

Not as powerful as most shiraz's, which was probably balanced by the grenache. Full mouth feel, but not the lingering pepper that was expected. Would buy again for the price. Good to drink without food.

Decanted 30 min. Blend is 75% Shiraz, 25% Grenache, all from McLaren Vale in south Australia. Deep maroon color, going lighter at the edges, with glass-clinging legs. Nice earthy nose with dark berry fruit notes. Unexpected earthiness from a New World wine, especially one that's just $12. Flavors of blackberry, sour cherry, with some leather. Bitter finish with ample alcohol heat (14.5%). Nice, but not outstanding, although great QPR. Excellent - 87 points.

Yummy. Fruity yet spicy. Great body and finish. Not always a fan of the blends but I would definitely buy this again. These 2 grapes go well together.

Smooth, luscious, food friendly. Great aroma. One of the few wines my husband and I agree upon. Its rare when I can open up an excellent bottle of wine for under $10 - that's how little it costs where I live.
