The voluptuously fruity, dense ruby/purple-colored 2003 Shiraz Trumps offers up rich aromas dominated by creme de cassis and blackberries with notions of licorice, underbrush, and spice in the background. The pure fruit continues on the palate resulting in a velvety-textured, seamless expression of Shiraz displaying impeccable winemaking. This cuveacute;e was aged completely in old American oak. While it may not be the longest lived Barossa Valley Shiraz, for drinking over the next 5ndash;7 years, it offers considerable pleasure.

Varietally accurate shiraz aromas of dark berries, gunflint, mocha and chocolate. Sweet, fat and rich, with compelling flavors of dark berries, minerals and gunflint. Showed more primary crushed black raspberry with aeration. For a wine with this much sweetness, therersquo;s also very good underlying backbone. Generous, ripely tannic and very long on the aftertaste. And not at all overwhelmed by the used American oak barrels. A major mouthful of wine for the price.

A great value, the outstanding 2004 Shiraz Trumps is a 100% Shiraz aged in old wood. It exhibits a dark ruby/purple hue along with a forceful, flamboyant nose of road tar, blackberry and cassis fruit, licorice, and pepper. This opulent, savory, expansive cuvee will provide thrilling drinking over the next 2ndash;3 years. For some reason, this high quality winery never receives the press it merits.

The 2005 Shiraz Trumps (100% Shiraz from 10- to 60-year-old vines aged 16 months in used American wood) is one of the great values in South Australian Shiraz. This super-intense, mouth-staining, and mouth-filling cuvee is all about gorgeously pure black fruits kissed with sweet oak presented in a full-bodied, beautiful, multilayered, textural, hedonistic style. Consume it over the next 3ndash;4 years.

Deep violet. Sexy aromas of candied blackberry, cherry cola and licorice, with a subtle floral element and sexy oak spices. Plump and smooth, the blackberry flavor showing superb sweetness and supported by a supple tannic structure. Finishes on an expansive note of dark berries, with a late hint of fine tannins. Excellent for the money.

Supple, round and generous, with a gently spicy edge to the toasty blackberry and cherry flavors, all of it persisting on the long finish. Needs to resolve some of the oak and tannins. Best after 2006.

A Shiraz not afraid to walk to the beat of its own drum. Medium-bodied and lean, straying away from the typical over-oaked style. Bright, lively plum and black cherry interplay with the traditional spiciness of the grape.

Winemaker's Notes:

Sourced from estate-owned vineyards in and around Lyndoch. The "Trumps" name is derived from the Euchre playing that occurred in the down time by the workers of an original "Trumps" vineyard; Daylight Chamber. It was once the tradition of a small group of Barossa pioneers to retreat to the cool stone depths of an old vineyard cottage. Here they would while away many hours playing cards and drinking wine away from the critical eyes of puritanical souls. The cottage still stands among the vines that produce this wine, a flavorful, aromatic drink that always ‘comes up trumps!’
