d'Arenberg "Stump Jump" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

$10.99

90 points, a Best Value designation and one the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2009: "Ripe and open-textured, this is impressive for the way it packs in the cherry, blackberry and raspberry flavors and doesn't take the foot off the gas pedal until the mineral-inflected finish has played through. Drink now through 2018. 5,000 cases imported." (09/09) And, according to Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "VDeep ruby. Black cherry, plum and pepper on the nose. Supple and sweet, with rich dark berry and candied plum flavors and a hint of black pepper. Finishes with very soft tannins and a lingering note of licorice. This wine offers serious complexity and depth for the money.

winemaker's notes:

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.

alcohol by volume: 14.5%
critical acclaim:

"Opaque purple. High-pitched aromas of boysenberry, blueberry and violet. A juicy, velvet-textured fruit bomb, with jammy dark berry flavors enlivened by a hint of white pepper. Not the last word in complexity but offers a load of expressive black and blue fruit, finishing with ripe, smooth tannins and good length. "

International Wine Cellar

"Medium red-purple; there has been no attempt to make a wine of finesse or elegance; rather, it has been a successful attempt to extract every last drop of vinous blood and (to a lesser degree) tannins. Excellent bbq red, well priced."
