Revolution Shiraz 2007

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

For value, the knock-out 2005 Shiraz Revolution (100% Shiraz aged in French oak, of which 15% is new, for one year) displays a full-bodied, beautifully pure style with plenty of blackberries, pepper, and spice. With terrific intensity, sweet tannin, adequate acidity, and plenty of glycerin, it can be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years.

Revolution Wines is a winery located in midtown Sacramento -- 2116 P Street (behind 2114 P Street). No, we are not a wine bar, although we have a tasting room. Yes, Revolution Wines is a winery – we receive grapes from our growers, we crush, ferment and age the wine on site, pretty cool eh? We named our winery Revolution Wines because we think that the big players in the wine industry have positioned wine as an exclusive luxury good. Wine, we feel, is a good for all to enjoy. To that end, our mission is to produce an accessable, top-notch distinctive wine. Producing high-quality distinctive wine is what we do at Revolution Wines. We buy our grapes from the best regions grown by established growers. For example we buy our Zinfandel from Joe Aparicio in the Amador County AVA and Cabernet Sauvignan from Blackwood Vineyards in Napa Valley. We press our grapes using state-of-the-art Italian-made Puelo press and age the wine only in French Oak barrels. When we need to pump our wine we use Wakashau technology, known for how gentle these fine pumps are on wine. Wine Tasting Hours Th 1-9p | Fr 1-9p | Sa 1-9p | Su 1-6p Read less

Comes out of the chute a bit tarry and rubbery, but seems to come around with some time in the glass, offering a lush, dense texture and flavors of coffee and black olive that finally show some berry shadings on the finish.

Red wines $20 and over. Recommended and tasted, but no tasting note given.

The 2006 Shiraz "Revolution" was fermented with native yeasts and spent 9 months in stainless steel and two-year-old hogsheads. Purple-colored, this "terroir-driven" wine has a complex perfume of earth, mineral, sausage, game, truffle, and blueberry that borders on kinky. This leads to a full-bodied, plush, sweet, dense wine with exquisite balance and length. Drink this excellent value over the next 6-8 years.

Glass-staining ruby. Fresh cherry, blackberry and anise on the nose, with building spiciness and a smoky, floral quality; smells like a northern Rhone wine. Lush dark fruit flavors show liqueur-like power and depth, with bright acidity adding spine. Candied violet and licorice notes linger on the long, sappy, refreshingly spicy finish.

Has a smoky edge to the dark berry flavors. Finishes a bit hot, with hints of licorice and pepper. Best after 2008.

Inky ruby. Extremely pungent, northern Rhone-like nose of blackberry, iron, resiny herbs, flowers and black olive. Broad and rich, with deeply concentrated dark berry liqueur flavors, lightly chewy tannins and building sweetness. Turns more strongly floral and sweet with air, finishing with strong notes of bitter cherry and cassis. This powerhouse will need some serious food.
