Selected Vineyards McLaren Vale Shiraz 2019

This wine has quite the nose of black fruit. The palate has the classic jammy Australian Shiraz fruitiness. This wine is quite lovely. 8.7 out of 10.

1692 Discover Collection Stellenbosch Pinotage Shiraz 2019

I really enjoy the QPR of many different varietals and blends that Spier produces. This #shiraz #pinotage blend pours dark purple. After it opens up a bit, earthy, smoky, laid-back bramble fruit and slight petrol and rubber notes from the Pinotage. Striking acidity, blue/black fruit, some bitter chocolate and coffee with well-behaved tannins all swirled together; clearly a fantastic BBQ wine.

Rock It Like a Redhead Shiraz


The nose is jammy with a hint of smoke. The palate has blackberries with smoke in the finish. Great with barbecue.

Kingston Estate

The Ink Shed Petit Verdot Shiraz 2017

True to it’s name this #shiraz #petitverdot blend pours purple black. Rich with bramble fruit, some prune notes but it avoids flabbiness with bracing acidity and moderate tannins that fade quickly. I find it unbalanced with that tartness but not much complexity or depth. — 4 years ago

Amon-Ra Barossa Valley Unfiltered Shiraz

Been awhile since I’ve had this big boy. Juicy-jammy, but reined in. Big blackberry was expected, and echoed on the palate, but dried blackberry, oregano, dried black currant, tobacco, Turkish coffee, dark chocolate and vanilla, make it decadent. Violets, smoke, allspice and leather keep it honest. Pleasantly satisfying and a welcome diversion. .

Joshua Barossa Valley Grenache Blend 2018


Solid 9.0. #barossa valley #barossavalley blend of #gsm #grenache, #shiraz and #mataro or #garnacha #syrah and #monastrell #mourvedre Deep deep color typically ripe (low latitude=intense sunlight) medium (+) aromas of red and black fruit, hints of ink, chocolate and toast. On the palate...as one would expect, ripe and juicy. Maintains a lovely balance between the ripeness and juicy sweetness of the fruit, the medium acidity and the high alcohol (hardly noticeable) and ripe tannins. Good stuff. Reminds me of my wines from Campo de Borja. #australia #southaustralia — 2 years ago

Reserve The Warden Red Blend 2018

This #shiraz #granache blend has #junkinthetrunk with big, bold notes of black plum, black cherry, and tobacco notes on the palate. The tannins give it structure so that it isn’t a total fruit bomb. 8.7 out of 10. — a year ago

The Ball Buster Barossa Valley Old Vines Shiraz Blend 2014

78% #shiraz 14% #cabernetsauvignon 8% #merlot

#ValentinesDay Inky purple color with some sediment left in the bottle when I decanted it. The nose has black fruit and chocolate. There was a little barnyard that blew off with time in the glass. This is a meaty wine with #junkinthetrunk. The palate has jammy black fruit and a little spice. It paired perfectly with #reversesearedribeye. 9 out of 10 #inkyindulgence

The Dead Arm McLaren Vale Shiraz 2016


This is #Shiraz from #Australia Deep and brooding ruby color from #oldvines #mclarenvale On the nose blackberry black cherry blueberry and ink. Followed up by hints of oak, dark chocolate, cedar and toast. You can’t drink the whole bottle because between the power and depth and the 15% noticeable alcohol it would be kamikaze. But...you don’t care #hedonistic — 2 years ago

This is a great wine, if you wait it out 10-15y the alcohol starts to dissipate.
