Cimicky Trumps Shiraz 2011
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.Add winemaker's notes

I tried this based on the Wine Spectator 90 rating. I was a little underwhelmed. For the price, perfectly acceptable.
Four and a half glasses
Delicious! Full of flavor. A real treat for the price.
External Reviews for Cimicky Trumps Shiraz
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.
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.
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 1-2 years but can be enjoyed now and over the next 6-8 years.
Sweet red currant flavors hold clean and fresh, even as the tannins keep the wine low and black. For braised lamb or gamey meats.
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.
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 3-4 years.
