The nose of this medium-bodied Shiraz is mostly cherry fruit. The wine’s flavor has cherry and plum notes, with some of the expected pepper and a hint of vanilla. The finish adds some oak. The tannins are balanced, and for an inexpensive wine, this Stonehaven Shiraz has good structure.

Today the Box Wines blog posts a review of the Stonehaven Shiraz in the 3-liter box from South Eastern Australia. I haven't seen this one in my part of the US yet, but I will definitely keep an eye out for it, because the Box Wine Guy rates it highly, giving it 8.5 points out of 10. Sounds excellent, and a bargain to boot! Here's what he had to say (be sure to see the entire review at the Box Wines blog).
