The 2008 Stump Jump Red has a nose of ripe and juicy red fruits and fresh plums mixed with dark cherry, rhubarb and cardamon. The palate is soft and generous, with juicy fresh red berries, mulberry and a hint of pomegranate. Underlying is a more subtle layer of plum stone, star anise and cinnamon which adds complexity and interest, with soft powdery tannins to finish.
Inviting fresh plum aromas leap out of the glass with raspberry and pretty pot-pourri notes providing more complexity. The palate is juicy and spicy with an abundance of red fruits that are fresh and vibrant. Licorice and rose petals come through on the mid palate and an under-lying earthy complexity is evident all the way through. The tannins are powdery and subtle on this juicy ready to drink red.
(From 2011 Vintage) 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.
delightful Shiraz. light on the palate, yet not at all lacking in depth. smooth aromas of berries and light grapes, and a light blend to bring you down under with every taste. rich flavor with a meade finish, earn this wine a spot in the cellar.
great nose, rocio says it smells like an earthy strawberry that hasn't been washed yet, maybe some plum and cherries; super smooth and velvety, lots of flavor, very drinkable, not a very long finish but tremendous value
just smoked so... hints of berry, mellow, oaky, slight sweetness, soft pup pup at my side. finishes a little sour
wine spectator 90 pt best value. old bush-vine.
very fruit forward with well integrated oak. well balanced and velvety. slight tobacco on the palate.
excellent companion to fancy pizza (bocconcini/proscuitto). not too sweet, but sweeter after.
Alcohol taste. Not bad, but not worth anything more than the price.
solid. no bite. no bitter. keeps it's flavor thru day 2 well
drink with roasted lamb or chops drinkable thru 2015
current fave of Jarrod in early 2011.
excellent balance with blackberry and cherry notes

Wine Spectator(From 2009 Vintage) "Light and lively, with pretty floral apple flavors at the fore, remaining on the finish with hints of grapefruit and spice in a refreshing style. Riesling, Marsanne and Sauvignon Blanc. Drink now. 5,000 cases imported."
