Henry's Drive Pillar Box Red 2005 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Inky, dark color
Crushed blackberries and some chocolate on the nose
Rich, fruity core of fruit
Nice finish with more ripe berries

Talk about fruit forward and rich! For the money, this is a big, fruity wine. It costs about $10 and seems to be widely available now.

If you're looking for a ripe, rich Australian red at the ten dollar mark, this is it. Warning- you must be in the mood for this style. While very smooth and rich, it is very fruity and almost sweet. Don't say I didn't warn you. Raise a glass!
