Padthaway Pillar Box Red Wine, $11.04-$15.99, 88 points, is not a complex wine, but it is delicious throughout, carrying on a medium body good acidity, mild tannin, and smooth pale boysenberry fruit.
The color is light cranberry to garnet with a clear rim, and the nose is a toasty eucalyptus and black fruit.
Mostly black fruit flavor with rich licorice.
Finishes moderately on spice and a touch of heat (14.7% alcohol)
I was surprised at just how much I liked this wine; can drink alone or with that grass fed beef.
65% Shiraz, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Merlot are the varietals.
