Ironberry 2008 Cab-Shiraz-Merlot Blend

Ironberry 2008
Total package here: cool designs, low price & good flavors. This was a random pick up from Total Wine the other day, and a lucky find. For $6.99, it makes for a wonderful weekday wine that drinks like it's double the price, at least. Great bottle to bring to your next party or bbq without having to spend a fortune for a bottle.

Bold fruit (plum), tad of spice, and a bit of rocky tinge on the finish. Good balance of grapes: 36% cabernet sauvignon, 33% shiraz, 31% merlot. I'll be looking to pick this one up again next time I'm there. 7.5 out of 10 rating.
