Color: Black core with magenta rim.

Aroma: Rich berries, plums, lavender and dark chocolate coupled with spice, subtle earth, char/ash and anise. This wine is from a near perfect vintage and very evocative of Barossa Shiraz.

Palate: Dark fruit bursts onto the palate. The vibrant acid carries the juicy plummy fruit and bitter chocolate seamlessly through the palate and continues to roll on and on balanced by firm but fine tannins. This wine is from our best vintage to date and will need a few months to settle down, and will drink well for at least the next decade if cellared well.

Wine Advocate

The 2010 Gnarly Dudes Shiraz has a deep purple-black color and an intense nose of blackberry preserves, blueberry pie and fruit cake with suggestions of ground cinnamon, cumin seed, fenugreek and mace. Full bodied with a generous amount of ripe, forward berry and spice flavors, the richness is nicely contrasted by crisp acid and a medium to firm level of rounded tannins, finishing long and spicy. Approachable now, it should keep to 2019+.

Score: 91. —Lisa Perrotti-Brown, February 2012.

Wine Spectator

This firm red displays a light grip of tannins around a core of black and red cherry and grilled meat flavors, prevailing against a mildly chewy finish. Best from 2014 through 2018.

Score: 91. —Harvey Steiman, July 31, 2012.
