WS 91 IWC 91 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Dark and brooding, with blackberry, cherry and gentle spice flavors unfolding on the smooth, meaty frame. The finish persists against velvety tannins. Drink now through 2020."
According to International Wine Cellar - "Bright purple. Ripe, highly perfumed aromas of blueberry, cassis, smoky minerals and violet. Plush and sweet but focused, with a silken texture to its dark fruit and floral pastille flavors. Youthfully taut but promising, finishing with very good lift, soft tannins and lingering floral and spice notes."
According to Wine Advocate - "Deep garnet-purple in color and presenting a nose of warm blackberries and black plums over hints of dark chocolate, licorice and black pepper, the full-bodied 2012 Gnarly Dudes Shiraz delivers tons of muscular fruit in the mouth along with a medium level of chewy tannins and a refreshing burst of acid in the long, anise-laced finish."
Tasting Notes - "Deep dark red. A melange of fruits explode on the nose; bright red berries, spiced plums and chocolate coupled with subtle hints of fresh flowers and cedary oak.Pure and focused with lively black berries, black pepper and bitter chocolate. Lovely bright acids and fine yet tight tannins provide the ideal framework to a palate that is both long and pure. This wine has the intensity and power without ever feeling rich or heavy. A great Gnarly Dudes from an equally great 2012 Barossa vintage".14.8% ABV.
