Winner's Tank Shiraz Langhorne Creek 2006

Member Review by jasonkauf:

Call me a poseur. I'm a total freakin' sucker for the big fruit punch shakes like this. Oaky, thick and very plummy.

Good fruit on the nose. REAL aromas. Somewhat sweet. Good midpalate fruit, weak tannins. Extracted

Barossa-based winemaker Reid Bosward crafts this lush, opulent Shiraz from Langhorne Creek. Bold blueberry and blackberry flavors are soft and pillowy in texture, picking up brushes of chocolate and asphalt on the finish.

Glass-staining ruby. Highly complex bouquet displays cherry, candied licorice, wintermint, camphor and smoked meat. Weighty and deep, with sweet but energetic dark berry and cherry flavors, good mineral lift and a late note of bitter cherry skin. Impressively fresh shiraz with a firm, youthful bit and good finishing lift. This wine is made by Reid Bosward, of Kaesler.

A perennial Best Buy, Winner's Tank's 2008 Shiraz is a glass-coating opaque purple. It exhibits an excellent nose of violets, incense, blueberry, and blackberry. Layered on the palate with succulent flavors, this smooth-textured, lengthy effort will offer pleasure over the next 4-5 years.

The 2006 Winner’s Tank Shiraz is a perennial Best Buy. It spent 9 months in tank with French oak staves. Purple-colored, it has a wonderfully expressive perfume of plum, black cherry, and blueberry compote. This leads to a full-bodied, seamless, rich wine with a long, pure finish. This is an ideal, everyday wine worth buying by the case. It is an awesome value.
