Sipping Fine Wine

Deep dark red with aromas of fresh beery fruits with an earthy mineral expression. On the palate rich ripe fruit, blackberry & blueberry with hints of dried cherry. Well balanced with slightly firm tannins and lively acidity. Lingering finish ending complex with gentle oak, herb, mineral and earthy character. Will improve with short term aging, but don’t wait too long as you might be disappointed! Very nice Shiraz! Tasting Sample!

Solid Aussie Shiraz, not too much to say but this is a midweek banker for sure.

Tough not to like this wine - very generous w/heavy extraction of copious ripe fruit (probably blue, black & red!) but not much else. Not flabby but easy drinking, a smooth viscous hedonistic experience...

Quite good. Fairly dry and even. Holds its own with spicy food but nice on its own.

Deep ruby red color with very strong aromas of ripe black fruits, wet dirt, and rosemarry on the nose. Extremely full-bodied coupled with heavy flavors of plum, blackberry pie, mocha, and spicy touch of black pepper on the palate. Solid texture, heavy mouthfeel, sticky tannins, and spicy aftertaste. Medium-low acidity, rich black fruits, spicy - Good tradition Australian style of Shiraz. Enjoy with grilled steak, but selling price of almost Bt2,000 is considered a bit expensive.

I like this better than the 2015. Smooth on the palate, full bodied, fruity in a good way. Still trying out lots of choices from this producer. Still like their Gnarly Dudes offering as one of their best.

Good wine, very drinkable with hints of dark sweet berries/grapes.
