Cimicky Trumps Shiraz 2011

Member Review by MrRiesling:

Pretty intense wine with dark and rich flavors, mostly chocolate and blackcurrant. Thick viscosity, very jammy. Not very subtle, but still highly enjoyable. I agree with the 90 pts rating by Wine Spectator.

I tried this based on the Wine Spectator 90 rating. I was a little underwhelmed. For the price, perfectly acceptable.

An earthy, grilled-nut, stewed fruit nose is an accurate preview of what's to come. Deep black cocoa, smoke, blackberry and pine-needle flavors smolder on the palate. Finishes with good length and cedar-plum flavors.

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.

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, there'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.

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.

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.

The 2001 Shiraz Trumps is fashioned from younger vines, and spends time in used American wood. It reveals a Rhône Valley-like leather component along with pepper, blackberries, and rustic cherry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, nicely-textured, and chewy, it does not possess the polish of most Cimicky efforts, but there are plenty of guts in this macho-styled Shiraz. It will drink well for 2-4 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.
