Some Young Punks 2017 Passion Has Red Lips Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz (McLaren Vale)

A blend of Cabernet and Shiraz, this colorfully labeled wine starts off a little sweaty and funky. There's plenty of upfront ripeness, too, red and black berries that feel almost confected. Beside them sit cola, pepper and oak spice notes with a hint of meatiness. The palate is big and robust with tangy berry fruit, sharp acidity and slightly blocky, woody tannins. For the moment this is an elbows and knees wine, pointy limbs flailing. Try giving it a little longer in bottle for it to knit together better. Christina Pickard
