Great value for $13 ,Big,creamy full-bodied, bold shiraz from Argentina. Surprisingly better than many Australian shiraz in this price range.
Very bold with an overpowering heat from the high alcohol content. Slightly on the acidic side, with richly integrated tannins and strong aroma.

The 2008 Graffigna Centenario Shiraz Reserve is full bodied, with nice, fruity aromas of blackberry, prune and oak. Tannins are tannic and quite forward (decant for 15 min) and the finish is medium and chalky. It could have the potential to evolve if not being sealed by a screw cap. My impression: NICE, 88 pts - on sale till March 27/11. Tasted Mar/10.

Not very well balanced. Missing some shiraz aromas. Someone said is is full flavoured .hmm medium at best. Ok for twelve bucks i guess. But i won't be getting any more.
