Very fresh and vibrant Shiraz. Nice raspberry and red fruit flavors. Peppery with a bit of tar on the finish. Smoked a port tenderloin with apple and pecan, and it stood up to that nicely. Great QPR.

Nose opens to strong tar with hints of plum and pepper, and scents of floral. Tar, raspberry, blackberry, licorice, and pepper show on the palate, whose predominant pull reveals tones of tart and sour. A bit thin on the finish. For a cheap wine, not bad. Not bitter or astringent even though dominated by sour/tart fruit in the first hour. No heavy bombing, which is a relief, but thick clouds of sourness last until about 2 to 3 hours. At 3 hours, sourness dissipates and the wine takes on the velvety mouthfeel of quality Shiraz, more broad and complex on the finish.

Fruity sweet nose with a hint of spice/pepper. A sweet fruit palate that is slightly dry, a little hot, and an ok finish. Not my favorite Australian Shiraz.

Wouldn't know the taste of a bramble fruit if it kicked me in the butt, but if it's in there it's good. Great berry flavors with caramel and vanilla over the top. Soft tannins and light pepper on the finish. Not a fan of many Aussie shiraz bottles, but this one is a re-buy for me.

There are so many great Australian wines in this price range that it is often difficult to pick just one, but the Strong Arms Shiraz is definitely in my top 10. Lush and fruit-forward with a rich, spicy background, this wine epitomizes Aussie style. Just add this to the list of winners from the winery that brought you Marquis Philips, Evil, Luchador and Boarding Pass.

Inky purple. Dark berry preserves and baking spices on the nose, with pipe tobacco and roasted coffee qualities gaining volume with air. Broad and fleshy, offering simple, primary black fruit flavors, soft tannins and a sweet, ripe character. Lacks nuance but not bad.

There are 12,000 cases of this remarkable value. 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-textured, rich, and easygoing, the wine has remarkable class for its giveaway price. It actually has 2-3 years of aging potential but no one that I know is going to defer their gratification.

Strong Arms gets its name from the artistic work of Mel Kadel, who beautifully depicts the trials and tribulations we all go through on a daily basis. Strong Arms Shiraz assists in alleviating your worries by transporting you to another world with a nose of fragrant violets, cherries and plum. It is elevated even further when it enters your mouth bursting with blackberries, vanilla, spice and a little smoke. Its 15% alcohol and underlying acidity cut through any piece of meat with cutlery precision. A must-have in anyone's arsenal of wine!

On the redder, crisper side of the Shiraz spectrum, with gentle touches of spice and vanilla to accent the raspberry fruit. It's medium bodied and reasonably long on the finish. Drink now.

50% McLaren Vale, 40% Riverland, 10% Barossa ValleySweet-fruited vibrant nose of fragrant violets, plums, cherry and musk. The palate has rich blackberry, raspberry, licorice and tar. Finishes with a creamy, vanillin oak and slightly smoky character.
