Charles Cimicky Shiraz Barossa Valley Trumps 2009

External Review:

Clear, focused and detailed, delivering a juicy mouthful of plum, berry and tobacco flavors, hinting at clove and nutmeg as the finish lingers effortlessly. Drink now through 2018.

Surprisingly bright. Woody flavors, perhaps the oak? Great fruit, but not as well integrated as it could be. Might need more time. Very Good - 85 points.

The 2008 Trumps Shiraz was aged in predominately new American oak for 17 months. A glass-coating purple color, it displays a smoky, toasty, spicy nose leading to a fruit-filled, succulent Shiraz with a bit of underlying structure. This lengthy effort will evolve for 1andndash;2 years but can be enjoyed now and over the next 6andndash;8 years.

Rhone lovers will appreciate the hint of leather and herbs that runs through this strapping red, with more structure, complexity and body than you find in similar wines at this price. The ultra ripe currant, plum and berry flavors shine amid luxurious textures and well integrated oak.

Sweet red currant flavors hold clean and fresh, even as the tannins keep the wine low and black. For braised lamb or gamey meats.

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.

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.

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.
