2005 Terra Barossa Shiraz...$14.99
"Fruity wine that loves a good barbecue. This is a heady, full-flavored, inky-purple wine that saturates the mouth. It will stand up to just about anything you throw on the grill and will deliver plenty of fruit no matter how much mustard, ketchup, horseradish, or spice you put on the dish."
- Robert Parker, Jr, Business Week (July 2, 2007) - 91 pts
"An unreal bargain is the 2005 Shiraz Terra Barossa. Super-deep with amazing QPR, it boasts an inky/ruby/purple color along with deep blackberry liqueur, smoky camphor, grilled meat, and toasty oak notes. Full-bodied, rich, and mouth-filling, this is a stunner to drink over the next 5-6 years."- Wine Advocate (#167, Oct 2006)
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate
2005 Terra Barossa Cuvee...$13.99
"Supple, round and distinctive for its violet-tinged currant and dusky spice flavors, lingering effectively against refined tannins. Shiraz, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2013."- Wine Spectator (July 2007)
Rated 90/100 The Wine Spectator
2006 Shotfire Shiraz....$19.99
"Aims for refinement and achieves a supple balance of ripe plum and currant fruit against a range of sweet spices and fine tannins, lingering gently and expressively. Production was split between cork and screw-cap closures. Tasted from cork. Drink now through 2016." - Wine Spectator (Oct. 2007), 91 pts#57 on the TOP 100 WINES FOR 2007'
