Our Rating: 8 out of 10
Boonaroo may be the name of Australia’s largest kangaroo… or a red wine that is worth more than its inexpensive price. Boonaroo Shiraz Cabernet 2001 has a fruity, spicy aroma. The flavor isn’t quite fruit forward, but is plummy and complex with balanced tannins and oak.
This is a pleasant wine that will convince your dinners guests that it’s a more costly bottle. We’ve had some difficulty finding this five-year old wine, so grab a bottle if you can.

I like you blog and like that it focuses on the lesser known and lesser expensive wines. Keep it up and come visit my blog too.
Thanks, rBlog cellar! I think the wines I look at are what lots of people actually drink every day, or would like to if the could pick the good ones and avoid the bad ones.
I was glad to see a review that had a more experienced approach to this wine than I did. I did get the fruit and spice out of it but I think the tannins killed me at the finish. Something wasn’t right but it was still drinkable. I linked you on my review also.
I found several cases of this wine in a small liquor store in the Bronx NY….all my guest have loved it…
