Stolen Block Clare Valley Reds

This is a Private Label Brand from Australia's largest liquor wholesaler and as always we have to buy a case, try a bottle at our expense and then make a decision. It was pretty easy. These are well made, well presented wines that over deliver at the price point.
The two reds are medium bodied, 14.5% a/v, jampacked with fruit but DESPERATELY need time in the cellar. We road tested them over 4 days and they were drinking superbly by the final glass.
Both the cabernet sauvignon and shiraz are from the 2011 vintage
Our Price: $8 per bottle by the dozen

Every home should have one

It's not quite up there with the USB wine stick
which still makes me laugh after all these years, but it still brings a chuckle.
Thanks Tony Freeman.
