This has quite the fruity nose with jammy strawberries sprinkled with white pepper being joined by some dried game notes and hints of dried grass. On entry this is round and soft with a sweet edge to it. There is bit too much acid but nice tannins that help flesh out the mid-palate. The fruit is fresh and primary and the flavors really mirror the nose with strawberry jam, pepper, game, and a touch of wood spice. The fruit turns blacker on the backend and drops of quite a bit on the short finish, which end on a slightly sweet, jammy note. A bit monotone and gangly but with plenty of fruit. 86pts

The 2008 Torbreck Cuvée Juveniles was a medium purplish ruby with very noticeable legs. On the nose, there were luscious, ripe red fruits—strawberries and raspberries—followed by a hint of cinnamon. In the mouth, the first taste had an initial surprise of hotness, after which juicy red fruits—strawberries, raspberries, and cherries—emerged, followed by a touch of white pepper and cinnamon. The wine had lower tannins and acid, which makes it nice and light. On the second night with this wine, the Cuvée Juveniles was more jammy than juicy, and the raspberries were more prominent than the strawberries.

Sweet and fruity, there's a good acidic burst on the attack, the palate reminds me of grape children's vitamins and concord grape jelly.

classic rhone nose. flavor of strawberry jam and stone fruits. lots of wet rock. This went paired incredibly with polish kielbasa, but after the meal the wine fell apart. Very unpleasant, bitter and stony. If you can finish it with dinner then you are all set. May age well for a year or so but this type of wine is meant to be enjoyed young. This is food wine folks.

60% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, 20% Mataro. Dry wood scent. Sweet start, sour/tangy, dry yet jammy.

Not really my thing. If you like the Mollydooker stuff, you'll like this and for probably less money, but it's way over the top on fruit for me...and I like fruit bombs. Nose: big fruit - strawberry predominately. Attack: fruit driven too with acid on the front palate. Not sure what the alcohol content is on this stuff, but it's high. Upon inspection 14.5%. Mid-palate: explodes with fruit.. Really bold stuff - tons and tons of fruit. No oak. Finish: Nothing notable hanging around on the finish (other than more fruit). ..medium to light-full bodied wine (more than medium, less than full). Clean finish in general. Don't misread, this is very well made wine, but the style is pretty wild. A huge fruit bomb with no oak, and not a whole lot of structure or balance. I love most of the stuff out of Barossa Valley. It's bold, straight forward wine that anyone can enjoy. This is too, however if you appreciate old world wines, or even the big California Reds (as far on the other side of the spectrum as they are), this may not be your thing. Not sure how Parker got to a 92, but whatever. Drink this stuff with BBQ or State-Fair food (ie. fried twinkies, cotton candy, etc). Big bonus - it's got a screw cap, so you can actually open it at a state fair and know it will drink fine.

Stellar stuff. Great ruby color and a super kick of fruit and earth together. One doesn't overpower the other so the ruby fruits are all there, but there's no fruit bomby sugar rush that goes overboard.

WA 91pts. - IWC 90pts. - According to the Wine Advocate: A blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Shiraz and 20% Mataro, the 2009 Cuvee Juveniles came from vines averaging 90 years old and yielding around 22 hl/ha. Deep garnet-purple, it has a profoundly fruity nose, giving fragrant notes of warm raspberries, strawberries, some funk and earth plus a little tar and black pepper. Full-bodied, it offers a medium level of silky tannins, crisp acid to balance the concentrated fruit and a long finish. Delicious now, it should remain fresh and vibrant through 2015+.

The 2008 Cuvandeacute;e Juveniles, a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, and 20% Mataro raised in tank. Dark ruby-colored, it presents an alluring aromatic array of spice box, incense, and black cherry compote. Ripe, sweet, pure, and easy to understand, this forward, friendly effort can be enjoyed now and over the next 3 years.

Ruby-red. Black raspberry and blueberry on the nose, with subtle floral and spice qualities adding complexity. Juicy and appealingly sweet, with lively red and dark berry flavors and tangy minerality. Thereandrsquo;s nothing heavy about this wine. The black raspberry note recurs on the focused finish. Livelier than the 2007 and the best version of this bottling Iandrsquo;ve yet tasted.

If readers want to know what the quintessential Australian fruit bomb tastes like, check out the 2000 Juveniles, a tank-fermented blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, and 20% Mourvedre. Bursting at the seams with juicy blackberry, cherry, and currant fruit, it offers copious quantities of spicy, peppery characteristics, sexy, seductive glycerin levels, and a creamy texture that defines the word hedonism. It is not going to make old bones, but for drinking over the next 2-3 years, this is a fabulous, fruit-filled effort from Barossa. Anticipated maturity: now-2005.

From the Barossa Valley in South Australia, we bring you this superb full-bodied red. A blend of Grenache, Mataro (aka Mourvèdre) and Shiraz. Lots of bright berry fruit and velvety tannins. This wine does not see any oak and therefore shows plenty of clean, fruit-driven appeal.

The unwooded blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, and 20% Shiraz, the 2002 Juveniles, is a crunchy, deliriously fruity red offering aromas of kirsch liqueur, pepper, and spice box in a fruit-driven, full-bodied style that is immensely captivating as well as satisfying. It is meant to be enjoyed over the next 5-6 years.

Named for a wine bar in Paris for which this wine was formulated, this is a GSM with 60% Granache, and equal parts Shiraz and Mourvedre. In past vintages, I've found it lean and herbal, but this vintage brings flavors of ripe plum and cherry fruit, and earth, in equal measure. Light-to-medium bodied in the mouth, it's 100% tank fermented, with bread flour and eucalyptus aromas.

Winemaker's Notes:

Složení: 60 % Grenache, 20 % Shiraz, 20 % Mataro. Cuvee Juveniles je lákavé, nebarikované, mladistvé víno, vyrobené z hroznů starých keřů. Je voňavé, intenzivní a koncentrované, v chuti vynikají ostružiny a asijské koření. S klidem jej můžete ochutnat již nyní, nebo ho ve sklípku schovat na mnoho let. Víno pochází z vinic: Gomersal, Seppeltsfield, Marananga, Moppa, Koonunga Hill a Ebenezer (40-150 let staré keře). Víno se fermentuje hromadně v ocelových nádržích ...
