Reilly's Barking Mad Shiraz 2005

Here's yet another big Aussie wine with a critter label: Reilly's Barking Mad Shiraz 2005.

It's a perfectly likable wine, with a very dark color, peppery nose, and smooth, pleasing flavors of dark berry and plum on the palate. It's full-bodied, and has a satisfying mouthfeel and a long finish with just a little heat, due no doubt to its 14.5 percent alcohol content. And at under $15 per bottle, it's a real bargain.
