Pillar Box Red 2006 Shiraz blend Padthaway

comment

This showy Australian wine is quite the bargain at only $10.99 at BevMo! And don’t fear the screwcap, it’s no longer an indication of schlock. The name is in reference to the standard color of postal boxes in Australia, not this darkly hued wine. Big ripe black fruit flavors are highlighted with nuances of smoky meat, leather and spice. It’s just the ticket for people who love boldly flavored wines. This is a good choice for grilled spice-rubbed ribs, a hamburger, or a meat combination pizza.
