Slow out of the gate late bloomer. Bland and even a bit salty at first, strangely. But opens up nicely with fruit and richness in time, and redeems itself with cheeses.

I have to say, I'm not a fan. My husband and I tried 2 bottles from Costco and we tried hard to like it since it gets good ratings. I think we just prefer others.

    The purple-colored 2006 Memsie Red is composed of 87% Shiraz, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 6% Malbec, the wine was aged for 6 to 9 months in used American hogsheads. The aromatics are unusually expressive for a wine in this price category. Aromas of cinnamon, allspice, plum, blueberry and black currant lead to a medium to full-bodied wine with a plush texture, ripe sweet fruit, and a sense of elegance. This tasty wine will provide pleasure over the next 4ndash;6 years.

    Polished, lively and nicely focused to show off its pretty cherry and sassafras flavors, picking up a welcome floral note as the finish lingers. Shiraz, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2014.

    A solid red wine from the Victoria region of eastern Australia. Rich with blackberry and blueberry fruit character. A touch of mint and pepper adds richness to this structured red wine, which is a blend of Shiraz, Cabernet and Malbec.

Inky blackberry blueberry and candied plum on the nose with a bright peppery quality. Chewy dark fruit flavors are firmed by dusty tannins that carry through the finish. Solidly built in fact almost brawny and strikingly concentrated for this price point.

This tasty wine will provide pleasure over the next 4-6 years.Wine Tasting NotesThe Memsie red has a dark cherry / purple color. There are obvious blackcurrant, plum and spice characters dominating the nose. The palate is fresh with voluminous and forward, spice, berry and plum flavors obvious. These flavors are complimented by hints of sweet oak. The wine has great length with a persistent, smooth and clean finish. The Memsie red blend is ready to drink now and will cellar well in the short term, approximately 3 years.
