Weekend Wine Reviews #15

Terra-Barossa Shiraz.  Thorne Clark, 2008.  Australia. $16.99.  They say: the palate is rich and full, with spicy plums and creamy oak.   The tannins are fine and give the wine great length of flavor and a superb mouth feel.  We say:  plummy and spicy, nice medium body.  Buy again:  yes!

Falling Star Chardonnay, 2008, Argentina.  $5.99. We say:  peachy nose, with a thin, pleasant flavor.  Buy again:  split..I say yes, hubby says no.  


Penfolds Rawson’s Retreat, Merlot, Australia.  2008.  $6.50.  We say: plum, medium body and tannins.  Very good for the price!  Buy again:  yes!

    Pam, of these three I have only had the Penfolds and agree that for the money you can not go wrong with it. Almost all Penfolds’ wines I have had are great wines.

    You always give a good honest review and that is much appreciated. Thanks…
