Somewhat restrained nose with lots of spice and pepper, leather, game/charred meat, some element of freshness. Lots of going on for a wine at this price point. More fruit forward on the palate with lots of plum fruit and more spice. Some dry salty minerality. Very bright with lots of acid and moderately long length. Maybe just a touch hot. Great value.

Having not tried it for 8 or 9 years I was amazed that the "fruit bomb" I expected was a coarse dry spicy attempt to mimic a Rhone wine with the same grape composition and it has fallen flat. The high alcohol content has not changed and may be its only saving grace.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the Stump Jump Shiraz is scented of ripe plums, blackberries and baking spices plus a touch of anise. Medium-bodied with lively acid, chewy tannins, and a medium-long finish. Perfect go to Shiraz!!

The nose is chock-full of fresh blackberries, cherries and dark chocolate sprinkled with spices.The palate is fresh and juicy, ripe red fruits mix with plums, blackcurrant, flowers and a twist of black pepper.The tannins are fine with d'Arenberg's trademark earthiness helping keep this easy going wine in check. - Winery

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.

Vivid ruby. High-pitched, peppery aromas of redcurrant and cherry pit, with a smoky overtone. Bright and energetic on the palate, offering sharply focused red fruit, licorice and bitter chocolate flavors, plus a hint of candied rose. Closes with firm cut and good, spicy persistence, on a lingering note of anise.

A terrific value for current consumption, the 2011 Stump Jump GSM blends 46% Grenache, 39% Shiraz and 15% Mourvèdre into a plump yet firm wine that combines black cherry fruit with savory notes of chocolate, herbs and roasted meat. There’s even a touch of mocha on the long finish.
