Sweet cherry notes on aroma and pallets. Somewhat sweet but this wine is delicious and very deep fruit laden.

A very good red wine. Sweet while still slightly bitter. Great transition from sweet moscato wines that I am used to. Fun red to drink.

Guess I don't like sweet Shiraz, 'cuz I'm not a fan of this one. Too sweet - more like juice than wine.

Label says Sweet Shiraz but this was on the Manischewitz side of sweet. Headache started by mid second glass.

(*) not bad. Jammy raspberry compote with a little residual structure from tannins. Slightly bitter tannic bite but overall sweet and only mildly cloying. Good burger or BBQ wine.

In Ellen's words, starts sweet but doesn't end sweet.
