Reply to "Vintages Release - Jan. 10"

I'm not sure if anyone has tried the Pillar Box yet, but it does not seem like it is anything that special to write home about. I just checked Jay Miller's note - this is what he had to say: "The 2006 Pillar Box Red is 50% Shiraz, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 8% Merlot aged in a mix of used French and American oak. Purple-colored, it offers an enticing, fruity nose including aromas of cassis, black cherry, black raspberry, and blueberry. Full-bodied, ripe, and layered with flavor, this wine totally over-delivers on my hedonist's meter. Drink this awesome value over the next 2-3 years. Score - 91." I agree that it is a nice wine with a nose of black fruit and dark berries, but it is hollow and has a fairly unremarkable finish. I'm thinking more along the lines of a solid mid-80 pointer, but a 91 is a bit outrageous. Did anybody else have a different experience? Did I perhaps have a particularly bad bottle based on your own tasting notes?
