Darenberg Grenache Shiraz the Stump Jump 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 90 Light in texture and fragrant with floral, berry and beet aromas, this plays its fresh flavors against refined tannins, lingering effortlessly. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvdre. Drink now through 2013. Wine Tasting Notes An aromatic nose is of ripe fruits, christmas pudding, white pepper corns and boiled rhubarb notes. The approachable palate is dominated by red berries, licorice and savoury notes with lovely soft tannins and herbal edges. Its softness and balance of fruit and tannin make it extremely approachable at this young age.

Deep purple color with black cherry and mineral nose with semi-sweet red fruit/berries in a smooth full body. The finish is long and includes hints of pepper.

My Rating 87: Very powerful nose and taste but not very refined or containing much complexity. Neverthe less for the price of $ 8.- at Costco pretty good

This wine is a little to rough around the edges for me. Its a bit astringent and very acidic. Plus my wife didn't like it.

Fruity and spicy, but underneath there's a depth that's quite indescribable... Like it for that mysterious depth thou :)

This nose is very juicy, predominantly blackberry with a hint of charcoal. The wine is a fruit bomb, yes, with blackberry notes at first, typical shiraz pepper midpalate, then a lengthy blueberry finish. The soft tannins are well integrated with just the right amount of acidity; not over-oaked either.

Underneath the heat, the nose has dark fruit, cocoa and vegetal notes. Somewhat light-bodied, very fruity: strawberries, raspberries, bing cherries, empty midpalate then a cocoa finish.

The next time you're invited to a party and don't know what to bring, pick up one of these. Rich and spicy, but with so much lush black and red fruit it's impossible not to like this wine! Try it with fried chicken, veggie burgers or beef stir fry.

A voluminous, sweet fruit, mulberry, raspberry, spicy and earthy nose leads through to the palate showing the same flavors as the aromas. A great round glycerol sweetness fills the mouth with a touch of fresh, ripe fruit tannins on the aftertaste.

The nose features plum and bright red fruits with a hint of roasted meats, earth, pepper and exotic spices. The palate has some wonderful delicate fruit with blackberry joining the party. A touch of dried herbs adds a savory edge with fine, lifted tannins providing a long finish. It's cracking wine with sophistication-but don't worry it's still a lot of fun.

The 2008 The Stump Jump Shiraz was aged in seasoned French and American oak. It displays an enticing nose of spice box, lavender, and blueberry. Medium to full-bodied, ripe and flavorful, this balanced effort deliver a lot of wine for the money.

Ripe and open-textured, this is impressive for the way it packs in the cherry, blackberry and raspberry flavors and keeps its foot on the gas pedal through the mineral-inflected finish. Drink now through 2018.

Deep ruby. Black cherry, plum and pepper on the nose. Supple and sweet, with rich dark berry and candied plum flavors and a hint of black pepper. Finishes with very soft tannins and a lingering note of licorice. This wine offers serious complexity and depth for the money.
