This is one of the better tasting red wines that I have had in a long while. One of the things that struck me right away was the rich, fruity flavor. It was so good ... Shiraz is usually best served with spicy food because it's a bit spicy itself. Here are some notes from the website:

The generous flavours and contemporary, easy-drinking style of Lindemans Bin 50 Shiraz combines easily with food and most social occasions to deliver maximum enjoyment from the first glass to the last. Berry, liquorice and spice flavours

Tasting notes:
Colour: This wine is crimson red in colour and shows excellent depth.

Nose: Aromatic varietal shiraz: fruits of blueberry and blackberry notes along with rich stewed plum are balanced with integrated vanillin oak.

Palate: A vibrant fruit driven style shiraz, which shows soft fruit flavours and a touch of liquorice and spice. Careful oak maturation adds structure and integrates balanced tannins with a subtle savoury oak finish.

I'm not a huge red wine fan...but I've discovered that I really love wines from Australia and New Zealand. So I'm definitely going to try this.
