"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Pillar Box Red offers warm cassis and blackberry notes intermingled with more delicate hints of violets, dried mint and roses. Rich and well balanced, this full-bodied wine is nicely textured with medium levels of velvety tannins, a solid acid backbone and a long finish. Drink it now to 2019+." - Parker "Velvety and ripe, offering dark berry and licorice flavors that glide smoothly through the finish. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2015." - Wine Spectator
Wine maker notes
The first Pillar Box was erected in Australia after thhe introduction of postage stamps in the 1850’s. Several of these elaborately designed receivers still exist as stoic reminders of a time when beauty could be found in the most mundane – even in the posting of one’s letters. Awash with fruit and flavours the Pillar Box Red combines Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot into a wine which, in its first vintage, Robert Parker dubbed "one of the great wine bargains of the world”. Beautiful but definitely not mundane. Pillar Box Red has a dark colour and a vibrant purple hue, with aromas of fresh blueberry fruit, liquorice, dried mint and cinnamon oak undertones. The palate is dense and juicy, with flavours of fresh blackcurrant and herry combined with aniseed, dried thyme and mocha oak characters. The wine is rich and full bodied, well balanced and seamless with soft, persistent tannins
