    Winemaker's Notes:

    "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 has been bottled with 6 different but similarly themed labels."
    - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    Complex, bold, balanced with loads of fruit. Superior value. Another winner from Sparky Marquis.

    I am continually impressed by many of the value-priced Shiraz and Shiraz blends, and this is a great example. Opens with fruit, spicy in the mid-palate, with a surprisingly long finish and manageable tannins...a value at twice the price. I am very curious to see how it develops in a couple of years, and will save 3 or 4 bottles.

    This Shiraz is tasty straightforward representation of this varietal which would be a value at even twice the price.

    This started off as a fruit bomb that opened into a chocolaty rich wine that was better than many wines much more expensive.

    I choose this wine based upon its rating and brief critique. I was pleasantly surprised that the rating was right on target. I love taste. I plan to purchase additional bottles.

    This wine has huge flavor and an amazingly long finish. Lots of dark fruit and spice box. Tannins are then, but overall fairly mellow. Can sit for a few more years easily.

    For the price, this was a real find - the type to settle down with a glass after a long day! The label made it easy to find a bottle in the rack.
