Very rich, open-knit aromas here with ripe raspberries and blackberries given full voice. The palate’s silky mouth feel carries plenty of blackberry and dark-plum flavor.

Blackberry, spiced plum and lavender details mingle with dark chocolate, black pepper, gunpowder tea and dried porcini mushroom accents that linger on the finish. Tannins are appealingly firm on the finish.

This rustic Barossa shiraz contrasts the fruit sweetness of violet candies with the saltiness of earthy tannins. The two aspects come together with a lot of umami notes—salty anchovies and fruity mushrooms. Tart acidity keeps it clean. For grilled bratwurst.

As always, sourced from the Barossa Valley, the 2019 Gnarly Dudes Shiraz features darker fruit tones than the McLaren Vale-based Angel's Share. Blackberries and hints of black olive mark the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is lined with supple tannins and brambly spice nuances, leading into a softly dusty finish.
