Spicy on the nose with notes of black peppery married to spicy oak and resin framed plummy fruit. fairly full on entry and well balanced with some aggressive woody notes early on the palate followed by a mouthful of spicy and slightly jammy blueberry and strawberry fruit. There’s some gentle tannin here and plenty of spiking acidity keeping things fresh and lively in the mouth. The finish is short and shows some dry woody tannins and a hint of sweetness in a slightly clumsy way. A gutsy little wine that is easy to like for it’s plump intensity. 83pts

A bit meaty on the nose, though rather fresh and bright with black fruit, soil, cracked pepper and grilled meaty aromas. Smooth and larger scaled in the mouth, the flavors here are simple but attractive combination of black currant and wood spice with a hint of leather and earth joining in. This is moderately rich but at the same time it offers well balanced acid and tannins, lending this an attractive freshness in the mouth, and through modest, tart red fruited and gently oaked finish. A bit matte in the mouth but a pleasant surprise as well. 85pts

Jammy on the nose with deep notes of plum, currant and a whack of vanilla oak all topped with plenty of cracked black pepper. Pretty well balanced in the mouth though this lacks a little cohesiveness. The fruit is a bit mild compared to the nose and shows decent freshness and some nice blue streaks along with notes of pepper and herb. The tannins are fairly soft though the acidity seems to be the disjointed culprit. A crowd pleaser, with a fairly long if slightly sticky finish. 85pts

Rich cherry and oak aroma with berry and soft vanilla notes. The flavor is full of fruit and berry, oak and hints of vanilla. Very peppery. Decanting would be very beneficial for this wine. Great wine, great price. I paid $10.99. I'll definitely buy it again.

Supple, deftly balancing its pure currant flavors against a frame of cherry ... Drink now through 2017. -HS

The plastic cork makes this a great wine for picnics or hikes. Also I do enjoy a good Australian Shiraz, a this one is very smooth and fruity (strawberry and blackberry I believe).

This is McLaren Vale! Vibrant deep red with purple hues complement aromas of blackberry and cassis with nuances of chocolate and vanilla. Luscious blackberry fruit overflows from the mid-palate and is combined with fine tannins and a slate-like minerality. A full-bodied wine with a long, lingering finish, with good integration of its fruit, structural and subtle oak elements.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Red Knot Signature Shiraz starts out a little reduced with some rubbery notes giving way to a core of blackberry preserves, charcoal and aniseed aromas plus a touch of prunes. Medium to full-bodied with a good amount of savory fruit, it has a medium level of chewy tannins and a medium to long, earthy finish. Drink it now to 2017.

Fresh and sleek, with a vibrant feel to the red berry and blackberry flavors, hinting at mint as the finish lingers on a polished texture. Drink now through 2016.

Fresh and sleek, with a vibrant feel to the red berry and blackberry flavors, hinting at mint as the finish lingers on a polished texture. Drink now through 2016. 70,000 cases made. -HS Vibrant magenta in colour. Pretty aromas of ripe strawberry and blackberry are embellished with floral, milk chocolate and black pepper nuances. Dark berry and rich, earthy flavours combine with silky tannins to coat the tongue and linger with hints of savoury oak. A medium - full bodied wine that is enticing and seductive in its youth. - Winery

Right off the bat you see a deep magenta color in the glass. Fragrant aromas of blackberry and black forest cake with hints of citrus blossom and subtle cashew oak fill the nose. The textured, dark berry fruit palate is alive with black pepper and licorice nuances. Chewy tannins coat the tongue and define the long, lingering finish.
