Jip Jip Rocks 2017 Shiraz-Cabernet (Padthaway)
This is a dense, ripe wine that offers notes of dark berry fruit, chocolate, dried mint, a charred veg nuance and cola-like oak, along with some earthy reduction. Oak on the palate is chewy and the alcohol is elevated, but there's also a lovely savory character to the textured tannins. This is one for those who prefer their reds on the extroverted side.

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.
