Jip Jip Rocks Shiraz Padthaway 2007

Member Review by jasonkauf:

One note Hi-C with booze. Servicable with a pizza, but I was not having pizza, so knocking off a half glass. Super sweet sugar bomb here.

A decent shiraz. A bit dry, very mildly sweet, good peppery flavor, not too much fruit. Very drinkable with food, and a decent sipping red.

Jip Jip Rocks 2007 Shiraz is your stereotypical Australian Shiraz with bold dark fruit flavors, lots of heat, and a dark (almost black) color. I feel that Parker's 90 point rating may be a bit of a stretch and I would place this wine more in the 87/88 point range. I did appreciate the lack of oak which tends to crowd out the fruit in some other popular Australian Shiraz (Peter Lehman for example). The nose on the first glass reminded me of a salty sea breeze with a bit of decaying seaweed, the second and third glasses found the nose to open up to the fruit and as expected the tannins to relax. All in all it was a great pour for $14.99 and I would definitely recommend this wine to be poured with some nice grilled meats.

From the Limestone coast of Australia, it is not surprising that this Shiraz has a fair amount of minerality. However, it nicely offset by its velvety tannins. The nose offers sour cherries and notes of tar, giving way to blueberries and cranberries on the palate. Also present are cinnamon and clove with plenty of glycerin.

Dense purple. Jammy scents of dark berries, candied licorice, tar and roasted coffee. Rich and thick to the point of sweetness, but the blackberry and cassis flavors are propped up and kept fresh by gentle acidity. A rich, thick, velvety wine with a long, clinging finish that emphasizes blackberry and blueberry jam. A good version of this style.

The 2004 Shiraz Limestone Coast reveals good cassis and blackberry notes, but is oakier, lighter, and more monolithic than the 2005.

Jip Jip Rocks' 2005 Shiraz Limestone Coast exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as attractive blueberry, black raspberry, and creosote characteristics, wonderful intensity, supple tannin, and a long finish.

Ruby-red. Smoky blackberry, candied cherry, blueberry jam and licorice on the nose. Solid and sweet, with lush, jammy blueberry and blackberry liqueur flavors complicated by notes of vanilla and cigar box. Finishes with gentle tannins and good length, with a refreshing, slightly bitter note buffering the rich, liqueur-like flavors.

Smooth, velvety black currants layered with spicy brown sugar and spice.

Crisp in texture, with a veil of fine tannins around a zingy core of blackberry and espresso flavors. Finishes with a touch of pepper. Drink now through 2010.
