19 crimes turned criminals into Colonists. Upon conviction, British rogues, guilty of at least one of the 19 Crimes, were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. This punishment by ‘transportation’ began in 1788, and many of the lawless died at sea. Bright Ruby with ripe fruit and sweet spice. On the palate tart red berry fruit with vanilla spice. Firm tannins with big cedar and spice ending. Ok for price. Tasting Sample.

I got talked into trying this. The over the top marketing is the first give away. This is crap. Tastes like butterscotch. We poured it out because it wasn’t worth wasting an evening drinking it.

Reasonable wine, not offensive but not special. Hint of almondine.

Smells delightful but tastes rather bitter like sharp vinegar

I really liked it; it was a little too sweet for Bobby

Lighter purple-red. Smells like vanilla and sugar plums. Flavor is very fruit-oaky (caramel carnage, toffee surprise and cherry candle). Lacks zing. Not much acid to help things. Nothing distinctive or funky here. It’s crowd pleasing Shiraz with a hint of tannin and not much else. Guess the label is kinda distinguishing. And it’s got a frosted glass bottle.

Definitely needs to breath a bit. Big flavor. Juicy, notes of cherry and plum.

This is one wine where you dont have to do the crime to enjoy the full bodied beefy red wine. Bloody good leg opener 🤪
