Suxx Shiraz 2007

Member Review by JamesR:

Typical Australian Shiraz with that full shiraz flavor. It's got all the fruit like the Aussie's jammy style but without the jam. Considering the reviews from last year, this one is a winner two years in a row.

The 2007 Suxx Shiraz spent 12 months in 100% new American oak. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up a complex aromatic array of cigar box, baking spices, black currant, and blueberry compote. Full-bodied on the palate, it is ripe, layered, savory, and beginning to reveal a bit of complexity. Give it 2-3 years of additional cellaring and drink it from 2011 to 2020.

Firm in texture, with a chewy feel to the dark berry and cream flavors, hinting at coffee as the finish persists. Best from 2010 through 2014.

According to Dan Philips, the Suxx Shiraz was ldquo;made to be big, bad, bold, and over the top, designed to offend and indulge and arouse.rdquo; Although the label states the wine has 15.9% alcohol, Philips says it may actually be 16.5ndash;17%. The 2006 Shiraz was aged for 14 months in new French and American oak barriques, and hogsheads of various conditions. Purple-colored, it offers an expressive bouquet of espresso, mocha, licorice, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied, big, fat, and voluptuous in the mouth, all components including the alcohol are well-integrated. Ripe and sweet with a blanket of soft tannins, the wine will evolve for 2ndash;3 years but can be enjoyed now and over the next 10 years.
