The 2009 Pillar Box Reserve has dark, inky color and bright purple edges. It was selected from the best parcels of Shiraz and is a rich and densely concentrated wine. Intense blackcurrant aromas combine with toasted spice and graphite minerality to give a complex and lifted bouquet. The palate is fleshy at the start; showing ripe plum and blackcurrant fruits, then building in the mid palate with graphite, cedar toast and Indian marsala spice characters. The tannins are fine and velvety, leading into a refined and gratifying finish.
This wine is ideally served at room temperature with barbequed ribs or foods with a little spice (such us Moroccan style food).
Firm, focused and juicy, with guava, currant and white pepper flavors, coming together smoothly against refined tannins on the lingering finish.
