Great results from the 2015 Tastings World Wine Championships

GOLD medals and 91 points for our 2013 Three Corner Jack & pending release 2014 The Gaffer Shiraz at the 2015 Tastings World Wine Championships.


2013 Three Corner Jack Shiraz Cabernet Merlot

Opaque black violet color. Bright, fruity, creamy spicy aromas of blackberry pie a la mode, pickling spices, and nut brittle with a satiny, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, layered, medium-length chocolate, creme brulee, and menthol mint finish with well-integrated tannins and moderate oak. A wonderful spicy and herbal shiraz based blend.

2014 The Gaffer Shiraz

Violet color. Aromas of blackberry, currant, black pepper, and roast venison with a creamy, bright, dry medium-full body and a warming, nuanced, medium-long cherry jam, black pepper, plum, and savory roast wild game finish with medium tannins and moderate oak. Juicy, spicy and complex with notes of fresh cracked pepper, perfectly ripe cherries and a savory, yet juicy note of roasted game.
