Tasting Notes:
rated: June 17, 2006 , Stephen Tanzer
90 points "Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 05 ($35) Deep, bright red. High-toned, vibrant strawberry liqueur, raspberry and spicy redcurrant aromas, with a hint of exotic apricot. Juicy and fresh on the palate, with strong, distinctly red fruit notes of wild strawberry and raspberry preserves. This exotic fruit bomb finishes with a spicy, floral note and a hint of oak spice. 90 points "

92 points "One of the most successful offerings in d’Arenberg’s portfolio is the impressive 2004 The Laughing Magpie Shiraz/Viognier (94% of the former and 6% of the latter). Not surprisingly, this is a flamboyant, exuberant, deep ruby/purple-colored effort exhibiting plenty of sweet blackberry and cassis intermixed with touches of marmalade and honeysuckle. Nearly over the top, it should drink well for 7-8 years. " Best 2005-2013
