2005 Diggers Bluff Stray Dog

This lively blend of the Rhone grapes syrah (shiraz), grenache and mourvedre (mataro) is a red wine with an Aussie swagger and rustic character. This full-bodied, well-rounded wine is packed with blackberry, leather, smoked-meat, chocolate and wild-berry flavors. It's perfect for drinking right now, and its freedom from cork taint is assured by a modern screw cap.
