Nice wine. With the mix of shiraz, cabernet and malbec it makes for a nice balance. You can not go wrong with the price. Read more

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.

    OK Shiraz, but nothing to run out and buy more of. Bright magenta in color, with aromas of cherry cough drops--fruity with a medicinal edge. These gave way to cherry flavors with herbal notes. Suspect syrah, cab, and malbec is not the ideal blend here.

    I liked it. Unfortunately it did not go well with the pasta I had made. Maybe it was because of the sauce. I will try it again with something else.

    The 2002 Memsie, a proprietary blend of Shiraz, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon, is the first Australian red I have seen with a screw cap closure. A wonderful value, its deep ruby/purple color is followed by copious quantities of flowery blue and black fruits, impressive purity, and a nicely textured, medium-bodied finish. Drink it over the next 2ndash;3 years.

    Saturated purple. 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 mdash; in fact, almost brawny and strikingly concentrated for this price point.

    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.

    Crisp in texture, with generous, licorice-scented currant fruit that lingers on the open-weave finish. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Drink now through 2010.

    A wine that displays all the rich blackberry fruit, spicy licorice notes and sweet earthiness that make Australiarsquo;s Bendigo region famous. The intense black cherry aromatics are very impressive and perhaps even a touch floral at first, but the flavors are equally vibrant and provocative. Where it shows its stuff is in the middle palate, where it has outgrown its baby fat and developed substantial richness for such a young wine.

    This red blend of Shiraz, Malbec, and Cabernet represents one of the best values of the year for those looking for a bit more finesse and elegance. Make no mistake; this is still a big wine offering plenty of sweet black and blue fruits, but it is completed with the complexity of mushroom, spices and a nice velvety finish.

    An absolutely fantastic blend of Shiraz, Cabernet and Malbec from Australia. Sweet fruit and lush mouthfeel, with a long, lovely finish. The tannins are almost imperceptible, offering a very smooth, impeccable balance and body. Great value at this price. I highly recommend this wine.
