Review: **** $$ Kurtz Family Vineyards Boundary Row Shiraz, Barossa, Australia, 2006 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Boundary Row Shiraz.

Original tasting and review : This is Kurtz Family Vineyards Boundary Row Shiraz, Barossa, Australia, 2006, finished at 14.5% alcohol and first sampled eight years from vintage date, in July, 2014.

In the glass: Deep magenta, opaque from about a half-inch from the edge.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows deep, classic shiraz fruit, full of depth and showing some lightly funky new balloon.  From the aroma, seems like this will be deep and classic Barossa fruit.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact much as anticipated: full, fleshy, classic, red and black fur, light hints of eucalyptus.  Yummy, full middle, showing no age, but with bright patches of red fruit marching through the sip to yield a clean and lengthy finish.

In summary: Overall, rates four stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale and is a best value by almost any reckoning.
