The most impressive of the bunch. Huge tannins and spice, more earthy than fruit driven although some fruit is there.

I will agree that this is very good it's lower end partner has nothing on this and because of its reputation solely based on that was hesitant but also intrigued , I have to say this is pretty phenomenal big fruit flavor but not to much and great tannins and a great lengthy finish , blueberry jam on nose and jammy fruit and cassis and cardamom on palate and black current.

Like everyone else I was drawn in by the story/ label. The gimmick only takes this so far but once you taste you'll love this big red, smoky wine

Called 19 Crimes b/c committing 1 of 19 in UK, you were sent to Australia. The Warden is a Shiraz-based red blend (can’t find the rest of the blend, even the US distributor didn’t know…maybe it’s a Crime!) Dark purple red with aromas of dark berry fruits & spicy notes. The palate shows black cherry & plum flavors, with cinnamon spice and vanilla notes. Big wine with big tannins that needs a few minutes to breathe, Decant a must! Medium finish ends with jammy sweet notes & spice on the finish. Tasting Sample
