Wine Wednesday!

a tasty red blend

This week’s selection is an Australian blend of Shiraz and Cabernet.  It’s a Jip Jap Rocks  red wine from 2008.  I received this bottle as a gift, so I can’t offer you the price, but I’m sure it’s affordable and it’s really quite good!  It has consistently scored in the upper 80’s of several wine ratings. I have to say that I am becoming quite the fan of Australian wines recently!

Here are my notes:

  • dark cherry color
  • aroma of cherries
  • full bodied with a smooth finish
  • flavor of cherries with a hint of vanilla

And here is what the winemaker has to say about their wine:

“Bright purple. Energetic cherry and blueberry aromas display an exotic hint of licorice. Youthful, bright red and dark berries on the palate with a lingering finish.”
