Tait the Wild Ride 2012

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 The Wild Ride is a blend of 60% Shiraz, 20% Grenache and 20% Mataro that opens with aromas of warm blackberries, blueberry preserves and dark chocolate accented by hints of charcoal and spice box. Full-bodied and voluptuously fruited on the palate, it has a yielding backbone of soft tannins and just enough acidity to lend lift to the long finish. Drink it now to 2017+.

Tait Wines:
The growth in stature for Tait Wines has come about fairly quickly and directly reflects the dedication and vision of Bruno in his wine making skills. Bruno's wines have received very favorable overseas reviews ( 93 Parker points for the 2001 Basket Pressed Shiraz, 92 Parker points for the 2002 "The Ball Buster", 90 Parker points for the 2001 Basket Pressed Cabernet Sauvignon) and this has vali...

The growth in stature for Tait Wines has come about fairly quickly and directly reflects the dedication and vision of Bruno in his wine making skills. Bruno's wines have received very favorable overseas reviews ( 93 Parker points for the 2001 Basket Pressed Shiraz, 92 Parker points for the 2002 "The Ball Buster", 90 Parker points for the 2001 Basket Pressed Cabernet Sauvignon) and this has validated his efforts to make world class wines. Bruno's wines epitomize the Barossa style -big, rich and full of flavor. The obvious attention to detail along with strong relationships with his growers has allowed Bruno access to high quality fruit (the old vine fruit is from vines 50-80 years old) which he has then transformed into wines that are reflective of his personality - big, generous with loads of personality. Bruno also works in close partnership with his exporters, an essential ingredient to ensure the wines maintain their own in a competitive market and remain true to his own style. Now with the edition of new space through the recent expansion expect even more of the same from Tait Wines. Read less

Ruby-red. Fresh cherry and blackberry aromas show very good clarity and energy. Offers intense, juicy cherry and floral pastille flavors that put on weight and spiciness with aeration. Shows impressive power without undue weight and finishes spicy and long, with sneaky sweetness and just a trace of dusty tannins.
