I recently review the 2013 Angels’ Share Shiraz, however the Gnarly Dudes packs a bigger punch. I noticed a clean deep and dark purple color with aromas of fresh blue/red fruits with spicy notes. The palate revealed rich ripe almost jammy fruits, plums, raspberries and blueberries with firm tannins and acidity to match. I noted some cacao, toasty oak and black pepper on a lingering finish. If you open a bottle, give the wine a few minutes to let it approach it’s beauty.

Opening a bottle, I noticed deep dark Ruby color with aromas of sweet currants, red berry and earthy herbs. On the palate generous red berry fruit and plums with a touch of black pepper. Tannins are a bit firm and tight but overall the wine was well balanced with good length on the finish. The wine is drinkable right now and over the short term, say 5 years. Tasting Sample. Good value!

Light and silky mouthfeel. Blossoming tannins. Tart red cherries.

Very nice, not super complex, but fruity with good balance. Great choice with a spicier Asian stirfry with ground turkey.
