Tahbilk Shiraz 2006

I've not previously tried any of Tahbilk's non-marsanne wines, and I wasn't expecting much from a $14 wine.  However, I was really surprised by this wine.  An aroma of plums, with a touch of oak, was accompanied by a palate with nice length, notes of plums and slightly powdery tannins.  A bargain.  85 points.

Abv: 14%
Price: $14

  1. I had a bottle of the Tahbilk 2006 Cab Sav the other night and was really surprised, it was a really enjoyable bottle of wine! for $18 you cant complain!

  2. Thank you for the comment; as it turns out I've just tried the 06 Tahbilk cab sav as well, and I have to agree with your thoughts! Post to follow.
