    Winemaker's Notes:

    53% Shiraz, 37% Cabernet, 10% Merlot

    Pillar Box red is an opaque red/black color with a scarlet rim. It displays aromas of sweet, ripe red berries, underpinned cinnamon spice and dark chocolate. The palate is rich and fleshy with vibrant raspberry and blackcurrant fruit intertwined with a citrus-like cedary oak complexity. The tannins are full yet soft and supple, combined with the gentle acidity to produce a lingering, harmonious finish.

    This is a good drinkable wine that can hold its own against more expensive wines (those up to $40 range). While this wine is not as good as the Pillar Box 2005 Padthaway Red, it is still a good drinking wine with most regular food. It stands up to all types of spicy and dense foods while retaining its flavor. It is slightly sweet and not as dry as I would like but for the money, it is a good buy.

    A very good wine for an excellent price, really show some complexity. Could even age well. Has the structure of an old world wine.

    This wine is loaded with fruit as soon as it hits the mouth. Has a nice smooth finish but yet full bodied. Not heavy with tannins. I'll be buying more of this wine.

    This is one of my wife and I's favorite wines by far. We are not wine snobs, but just love wine. This is a mouthful of fruit in every sip.
