D'arenberg The Stump Jump Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2009, South Australia

This has a very nicely lifted, savoury nose of sour plum jam, pepper, menthol, lavender and tobacco. It's lighter weight... David Lawrason - LCBO, SAQ, BCLDB

Medium ruby to garnet in colour with medium to medium+ intensity.

Positives: Lots of spice going on here along with violets, plums, maple, nectarines, blackberries, dark cherries, tobacco leaves, cigar box & champagne mushrooms. Medium+ body with medium tannins, good acidity & long length.

Negatives: A touch of heat from the alcohol & some tartness on the finish.

Interesting Note: This GSM is more in line with Cotê du Rhone as I didn't detect the usual jammy notes associated to Australian wines. Use Shiraz/Syrah wine glass if you have them. Finally, from time to time LCBO has this wine on sale.

Drink now on its own or pair it with Chinese dish of beef, mushrooms & broccoli.

Tasted: 7 Mar 12

Tasted Oct 2011. Very flavourful blend with wonderful sour notes merging with peppery spices and a nice lengthy finish. An excellent GSM for the price.

Nice GSM blend. I love the fruitiness and the pronounced sour cherry taste - then again sour cherry is one of my favorite flavours in a red wine. In a lifesaver too now that I think about it. Would make a good summer red.

Used to be a big fan of the 2008 vintage, but the 2009 is just not there yet. I will wait until at least summer 2012 before I try it again.
