    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Shiraz offers dark plum fruits, mulberries and licorice with plenty of concentration, depth and velvety tannin.

    The Grenache adds a lovely lusciousness to the wine with raspberry, blueberry and floral notes adding prettiness. Both of the afore mentioned varieties also give a little white pepper character which has been accentuated in the cooler vintage and really acts as a point of interest.

    Finally, the Mourvedre provides a perception of elegance and restraint through its lovely line of lovely red fruits with a hint of dried herb and importantly, a fine chalky tannin that carries all these characters to a long and wonderfully moreish finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fresh and crisp, with a distinct mineral note weaving through the juicy plum and spice flavors, lingering pleasantly on the refined finish. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre.

    A terrific value for current consumption, the 2011 Stump Jump GSM blends 46% Grenache, 39% Shiraz and 15% Mourvedre into a plump yet firm wine that combines black cherry fruit with savory notes of chocolate, herbs and roasted meat. There's even a touch of mocha on the long finish.

    Vivid ruby. High-pitched, peppery aromas of redcurrant and cherry pit, with a smoky overtone. Bright and energetic on the palate, offering sharply focused red fruit, licorice and bitter chocolate flavors, plus a hint of candied rose. Closes with firm cut and good, spicy persistence, on a lingering note of anise.

    International Wine Cellar

    Mid-garnet; a bright and juicy medium bodied wine, showing spicy red fruits and enough structure of tannin and acidity to provide a little bit of fun and short term enjoyment.

    This is the first wine I have ordered on wine.com that I truly hated! Tasted of rancid pine needles, raw essential oils. Screwcap top, so how could it be corked ? Concentrated and tarry, just strange. Maybe I have a limited palate? Definitely "earthy" in the worst way. I thought maybe my palate was off, tried again after a few hours still undrinkable.
