Rip Snorter Shiraz Cabernet 2005

What they say:

A blend of 80% Shiraz and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, this red is big and bold with ripe berry and vanilla aromas. On the palate, the Shiraz lends blackberry and cracked pepper flavors, while the Cabernet contributes chocolate and licorice.

What I say:

The best of both worlds!  The Cab mellows the Shiraz just a bit and the flavors blend beautifully.  Still, I don’t see where anyone is tasting the licorice in this or any other of the wines I’ve reviewed.
