Pillar Box Red 2009

Purchased from Costco, prices vary by store
Total Wine & More: $9.99, 750ml
BevMo: $10.99, 750ml

Red Blend: 70% Shiraz, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot

Aaron:  Skip it.  Why? The berry and oak smell (with a hint of mocha at the end) does not compensate for the sharp flavor that was way too harsh.  I suppose this would be ok if you were at a keg party and weren’t into Bud light, but other than that find something else.  85 points

Teri: This red blend carries consistent fruity flavors with organic spice, cherry, and earthy tones. A slight bite at the end, possibly from the medium/strong tannins, but overall a standard drinking red wine blend. 86 points
