New release of the Shiraz blend from Australia that's gaining a cult-like following! Get the new release before the ratings come out!previous vintage 92 points Robert Parker: "The Ball Buster blend has been an annual Best Buy and, even at the current asking price, it is an awesome value (at least for hedonists). It is composed of 72% Shiraz, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 11% Merlot aged for 12 months in seasoned French and American oak. Opaque purple-colored, it has a nose of cedar, leather, spice box, and blueberry that leaps from the glass. This is followed by a plush, full-bodied wine with gobs of flavor and superior length. This easy-to-understand effort defines the meaning of over-delivering and will do so for another four years."

Good balanced Oz Wine with some sprinkle of pepperiness to let you know that this is still pretty serious for a bargain wine.

YES!!!! First had the Ball Buster in 2006 in Phoenix, AZ. Never disappoints- big, hearty, smooth, an "oh yeeeessssss" wine. And the name is pure pleasure. Does benefit from decanting as well....

Love this wine. Smooth and fruity without being too sweet. Easy to drink all by itself.
