Peter Lehmann Shiraz 2005 wine review by (PB)

This wine presents with a youthful purple hue and a big plummy bouquet and loads of blackberry fruit with black licorice fragrance.

Palate: It's a big juicy dark fruit bomb with ample fruit flavors and a nice texture with plush tannins and enough structure to carry this wine for quite a few more years.

Speaking of which--the label says it should hold for 5 years. News flash: this wine will hold for another 5 years more than likely.

I paid an excellent price of $13 for this bottle and it is a nice quaff if you're in the mood for a big, palate assaulting fruit bomb. Raise a glass to be sure!

This is one of my all-time favorite wines under $15 and one of my favorites in general. Great choice!

It's in my list of Table Wines at Everyday Prices from earlier this year: http://www.grapesmart.net/2009/05/table-wines-at-everyday-prices/

This wine seems to always be an honest value for the money. This is why I still love Aussie wine so much, because of certain "staples" like this that always show well for the dollar. Marquis Phillips is also another one of these really reliable values from down under. Cheers~
