Very pretty on the nose, peppery and ripe with smoke, dried meat and vanilla accents. This is rich but very well balanced in the mouth, showing fine blackberry, tinged with hints of game, black currant and fried bacon. The tannins are very soft lending this an easy drinking quality and the rich fruit pops on the back end before fading gently on the dry, austerely refreshing finish. This wants a steak. Very nicely done. 87 pts

Spicy on the nose with a bit of black spice and pepper over slightly roasted fruits and a hint of BO funk. This is fairly complex in the mouth, showing very well integrated wood tones, lightly jammy wild black fruits, and a nice spice note. Though the flavors turn a little roasted in the glass it's firmly medium bodied with good depth of flavor, and fine acids and soft tannins making it easy to drink and surprisingly food friendly. Air brings out more red fruit in the glass, and adds an appealing smoothness. Really a very nice glass of wine and the perfect thing for a backyard BBQ. 88pts

I didn't get it. I'm not a big grenache fan, but even so, this felt like drinking unsweetened cranberry juice. Ick.

The 2008 apparently was on Spectator's Top 100. I tried the 2009, it was like a fruitier Cotes du Rhone in this price range. Can taste the raspberry flavors of Grenache and the touch of pepper and sweetness on the finish from the Shiraz. It could be just me, but I am noticing a trend with 2009 Australian reds that they improve over the course of a couple of days. Pleasant & average, I would give it about 86 / 100.

Bold fruity favors. Very easy to drink on its own or paired very well with Camembert cheese!

I really love wines from McLaren Vale. But, I have mostly had straight Shiraz. This Rhone style blend is really very interesting it has got all that mulberry and plum flavours from the Grenache combined with the blackberry, spice and white pepper of the Shiraz. Really good.

Color is somewhat dull and cloudy. The nose is refreshing, but contains a cleaning chemical aspect. The aroma notes also include red plum and chocolate covered raisins, but it just can't cover the heat from the high alcohol percentage in this wine. The taste includes notes of chocolate raisin, acidic cherry and milk duds. It is pleasant with a bit of heat. The finish reminds me of yogurt with a heavy mouthfeel.

Smooth, medium bodied red. Starts off with hint of strawberry and cherry fruit, but then spicy peppery notes predominate. Slightly woody, dry spice flavours with gentle tannins and medium acidity. 87/100.

A super value, the 2005 The Stump Jump is a blend of Shiraz, Mourvedre, and Grenache that represents a superb Australian imitation of a Cotes du Rhone. Loads of berry fruit, herb, pepper, and spice box characteristics are offered in a medium-bodied, delicious style. It is meant to be drunk during its exuberant youthfulness.

Dark red. Fresh dark berries and flowers on the nose, with a complicating note of black pepper. Supple cherry and dark berry flavors are supple and bright. The finish is round, soft and gentle, with good sweetness of blackberry fruit and baking spices. There were 20,000 cases imported, so you won't have to look too far for this great value.

90 Points - Wine Spectator Light in texture and fragrant with floral, berry and beet aromas, this plays its fresh flavors against refined tannins, lingering effortlessly. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvè

D'Arenberg's reds begin with the 2007 The Stump Jump Red, a Grenache, Shiraz, and Mourvedre blend which was whole berry fermented. Fragrant and fruity, it has plenty of crisp, crunchy fruit, ripe flavors, and a lengthy close. Drink this easy-going quaffer over the next 2-3 years.

Vivid ruby. Fresh red berries, flowers and spicecake on the nose. Lively and fruit-driven, offering juicy raspberry and blackberry flavors braced by tangy acidity. Lots of flavor for the money here. The finish is juicy and nicely persistent, with tangy red berries dominating.

Light and lively, this offers orange peel-accented raspberry fruit, finishing with a lift. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. Drink now.

The red wines begin with the dark ruby-colored 2008 The Stump Jump Red which is a blend of 42% Grenache, 36% Shiraz, and 22% Mourvedre. It delivers an attractive nose of spicy red and blue fruits leading to an easy-going, tasty, seamless wine that can be enjoyed over the next 3 years. As usual, it is a terrific value.
