Added Sep 3, 2016 at 6:59pmGiving new meaning to chocoholic, this milky cool concoction has a dessert wine kick even if you're not realizing it at first glass. Probably pairs best with a Valentine's Day treat or after a winter's comfort meal. I'm more of a dark chocolate fan and the wine-factor seems to get lost here, but more of a romantic gift. There is a sort of unusual scent at first that may be a bit offputting, but taste brings it properly home.

Added Oct 30, 2015 at 10:07pmAfter giving Tomasello's Ranier Red a 5-glass review, naturally the white needed its fair try as well. Like its sister, there's an opulent burst of wet fruitiness at first sip. Where they part ways however, is at the finish. The white turns to her own character of a bit dry and a subtle tart. This invites the imbiber to take another sip to regain the chase of sweetness. I'm sure this is someone's 5-glass wine, but for me, I still prefer the through-and-through sweetness of the red. My greatest critique is the label saying "table wine". Oh no Tomasello, this is special, not something to toss on the table with breaded pork chops. There's good reason why I drove three hours to the vineyard where it was made to get it, which is that it was worth every minute just so that it can be enjoyed on its own.

Added Apr 29, 2016 at 6:29pmTastes similar to a sparkling rose' but without carbonation. Slightly bitter, mostly wet, nothing seems to stand out as extraordinary for me.

Added Feb 6, 2016 at 7:26pmSweet wet white wine with only the slightest bit of tart / dry in the finish. Agreeable, drinkable and stand alone, though would also pair well with a light dinner or cheese plate. A memorable treat with character that's likely to induce a craving every few months.

Added Jan 1, 2016 at 1:06amSweet, fizzy, wet, musky but not in an entirely off-putting way. It's an unexpected character that encourages the imbiber to slow down to enjoy the experience. Although not likely to be on my regular pick-up list, I'm grateful for having tried it.

Added Oct 2, 2015 at 11:32pmOne characteristic that was expected and favourable, is "sweet" on the first bite. This promising start however turns to dry and oaky rather quickly. The second sip was searching for that sweet, which was refound, but lost again amounst the dry wood. Ah well, not my cup of tea...er...wine, but if you're looking for dynamics with a chew of dry tree bark at the end, perhaps it's yours.

Added Jul 9, 2011 at 10:43pmSuper-sweet finisher for dessert. Dark with only a hint of tart, lusciously full-flavored Ranier Red will wake you up by being it's own dessert. Put down the chocolate, no need for lemon tarts, just a tiny glass here to satisfy your sugary cravings.

Added Sep 25, 2015 at 8:35pmSweet, wet to start, then semi-dry to finish. Depending on when you pick blackberries, they can range from a little tart like a raspberry to nature's candy. This is right on the edge between the two with the lucious exterior berry taste to the slightly tart flavour around the seed. Although I favour the sugary side of the berry, Tomasello captured the remarkable dynamics of the fruit. My preference is for a wet wine through & through, but of all wines with this kind of flavour, I have no problem crowning Tomasello's as king.

Jam Jar Sweet Shiraz 2015Compare and Buy

Added Sep 5, 2015 at 9:19pmOne thing the label got right for certain is 'sweet'. A bit dry, oaken finish, it's a transitioning medley of these three in this order. Although not my thing, After one glass, the oak takes over for me and is no longer of interest. All depends on the character a person looks for in a wine I suppose.
