Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) "The first Shiraz is the 2006 Shiraz "Trumps," a wine aged for 16 months in a mix of new and used French oak. Purple in color, it offers aromas of cedar, smoke, pencil lead, and blueberry. This leads to a medium-bodied, smooth-textured wine with plentiful, ripe, spicy blue and black fruit flavors, well-concealed tannins, good length, and no hard edges. Drink this outstanding value over the next 6 years." Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate 90 Points

    The 2008 Trumps Shiraz was aged in predominantly new American oak for 17 months. A glass-coating purple color, it displays a smoky, toasty, spicy nose leading to a fruit-filled, succulent Shiraz with a bit of underlying structure. This lengthy effort will evolve for 1-2 years but can be enjoyed now and over the next 6-8 years. Score: 91
