The name requires another Australian-to-American English translation: A "brumby" is a wild Australian horse; a "jillaroo," a farm worker. Thankfully, this wine doesn't taste like anything you'd find in a stable: it offers very ripe black cherry flavors, with some black soil joining in on the finish. Beaujolais-sized in body, this Shriraz (60%), Grenache (33%), Mataro (7%) blend is an inexpensive, easy quaffer.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
