    Winemaker's Notes:

    #63 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light in texture and fragrant with floral, berry and beet aromas, this plays its fresh flavors against refined tannins, lingering effortlessly. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2013. 5,000 cases imported.

    Rhone blends are my favorite and I'm usually very critical but this Aussie GSM rivals a number of it's French counterparts at a much lower price. With a lot of these blends the lack of acidity makes the wine fall flat but this one has all the needed complexity; it's not oftern you find a wine that is light and fruity yet still full bodied, especially at $10

    Another very good Aussie blend for the money. Better than the straight Shiraz

    four the past four vintages I've been a fan--every year it actually seems to be getting better. usually a winery that makes a value-priced blend tends to get a tad over-produced OR one doesn't notice subtle changes therefore the wine becomes boring. Not here. Great wine, juicy with a touch of earthy backbone. Beautiful food wine--not too powerful for some lighter dishes. Excellent example of great Aussie wines.

    d'Arenberg has hit the top 100 again with this inexpensive but impressive Red. Not overpowering, smooth, with a nice finish.

    I loved the companion shiraz, but this "red" is so smooth and rich, it deserves WS top 100 rating. The cost is a gift, so take advantage. Because of the inexpensive cost, a great wine to share with many friends.

    This is a wine that surprised me. I'm not typically a great fan of any of the varietals blended in this wine but tasting it made me a believer. Rather than the typical cough syrup taste I anticipated the wine too a turn toward sweet fruit instead. Just a very tasty wine that should appeal to a wide range of wine lovers. Overall this wine is extremely user friendly but not a 90 wine in terms of complexity or length of finish. My score - a very strong 89...enjoy!
