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.
