Barking Mad Shiraz 2005 is a perfectly likable wine, with a very dark color, peppery nose, and smooth, pleasing flavors of dark berry and plum on the palate. It's full-bodied, and has a satisfying mouthfeel and a long finish with just a little heat, due no doubt to its 14.5 percent alcohol content. And at under $15 per bottle, it's a real bargain.

This lighter-style Shiraz had us drawing comparisons to a Cotes-du-Rhone. It features plenty of red fruit in a fresh, smooth, texture.

[Woof! Woof!] What's that Lassie? Someone's stuck in the old well? [Woof!] There's a twister coming? [WOOF!] Oh! You just love Reilly's Barking Mad Shiraz?!? [Woof! Woof!] Because of its deep blackberry and currant flavors? [Woof!] And the medium-body is balanced by just a touch of acidity? [Woof!] And the hint of pepper on the finish makes you want to lap up another glass? [Woof! Woof!] Gosh Lassie, you sure are swell!

Perhaps the finest value in this portfolio is the 2005 Shiraz Barking Mad. This amazingly delicious Aussie red exhibits a dense ruby/purple color followed by a gorgeous perfume of blackberries, licorice, plums, and pepper. It is a full-bodied, opulent, pure, delicious Shiraz for drinking over the next 3-4 years.

Supple and generous with its red raspberry and pomegranate flavors. Finishes with refined tannins that let the fruit persist nicely. Drink now through 2015.

Reilly's entry-level Shiraz is a bold wine loaded with brandied fruitcake scents and layered with Christmas pudding and chocolate. It's close to being over the top, with plenty of late-harvest, dried-fruit character, yet stays lively thanks to heaps of invigorating spice. Drink now.

The 2004 Shiraz Barking Mad is a medium-bodied, fruit-driven effort displaying notes of blackberries and currants along with notions of tar and pepper, but not much else.
