19 Crimes 2013
Dark red in the glass, its legs cascade slowly due to its concentration and power. Possessing aromas of licoricem dark fruits and vanilla, this theme carries through on the palate with loads of rich fruit all wrapped in chalky, ripe tannins persistence and structure to support the concentration of flavour
The wine is a deep ruby color in the glass, while the nose is classic Syrah/Petit Sirah, bursting with jammy fruit, blackberry, cherry and a bit of strawberry along with some lovely spice notes, cinnamon, baking spice and cocoa powder. The taste is lovely and classic in the sense of an Australian Shiraz, with a burst of jammy fruit, blackberry, plum and cherry that shifts to some warm spice notes mid palate. The finish has some classic Shiraz twang as the soft tannins provide for a smooth warm finish that ideal for summer cooking.

Blend of Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Grenache and CabernetSauvignon from Australia with a ABV of 13%. Concidering the ABV of this wine I was expecting a European style wine but I couldn't of been more wrong. This wine is fruit forward, light acidity and smooth almost nonexistent tannins. A winner in my book. 88 points.
Dark ruby color. Notes of olives and boysenberry. Sweet on entry with soft tannins. Not very complex but an easy drinking wine
Smooth, "real" wine, easy to drink
Gulp, gulp, gulp! Smooth, not complex and not fruity. Pairs well even with pears! Good all around wine. gulp..gulp
Very tasty, smooth, nice blend
Smooth and refreshing red. Great with a meal or alone.

Polished, expressive and distinctive, with a green olive note weaving through the ripe blueberry and spice flavors, lingering easily on the deftly balanced and medium-weight finish. Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Grenache, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
A pretty intriguing Australian red blend comprised of Shiraz, Pinot, Grenache and Cabernet, with each bringing something to the table. The Shiraz add spice, the Pinot brightness, the Grenache juicy fruit and the Cab a bit of structure and tannin.
