Lovely, high-acidity Shiraz with lots of red and black fruit. Much more acid than a typical fruit bomb type of Shiraz, which makes it a nice partner for food. Soft tannins. An easy drinker that I'd buy again (this bottle was a gift, though).

The 2006 Shingleback Shiraz is the kind of wine that makes one realize how easy it is to become a wino if one doesn't exert some serious self-control. I decanted this wine about an hour and a half before drinking, since I suspected it would need some time to really open up. Now, here I am not three hours later about to finish the bottle! This wine is big and deep and fruity and just downright delicious. It's a party for the whole palate that leaves a warm and fuzzy finish of fruity tannins after each sip.

A nice shiraz for under $20. Hints of all spice and black pepper and vibrant with full but not over powering tannins.

Dark purple color with a nose of dark berries, plum, pepper and spices. The palate is lush and full with black fruit tones that finishes with some slight tannins. What I would expect from a McLaren Vale Shiraz. Very nice.

Fruit bomb, yes! Oak monster-y, yes! Me likes it anyway. Strong strawberry. Easy drinker and hot on the finish.

Bright, fruit forward table wine, blackberry and strawberry aroma enhanced with chocolate and vanilla- let breathe for a half hour and then enjoy the relatively long finish. Good price point.

Deep purple-black colored, the 2010 Shingleback The Davey Estate Shiraz has pronounced notes of warm blackberries and blueberries over cedar, violets and fertile loam plus subtle hints of Mediterranean herbs and game. The palate reveals a good concentration of ripe blackberry flavors with enlivening acid and a medium-firm level of fine grained tannins, finishing long. Approachable now, it should drink well to 2018+.

This supple, ripe red is generous with its bay leaf-accented cherry flavors, finishing with a mild grip of tannins. Best after 2013.

A brilliant magenta colour. Intense ripe strawberry and blackberry aromas are highlighted with dark chocolate, spice and vanilla. A rich, powerful strawberry mid-palate is elegantly framed with silky, fine-grained American and Frenchoak. A full-bodied wine with luscious fruit, soft rich tannins and a long, lingering finish.

Bright and generous, this is nicely focused to show off its cherry and spice flavors, picking up a savory note as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2013. 25,000 cases made. -HS
