blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache from South Eastern Australia. The wine is aged in 100% American oak and has 12.0 g/L of residual sugar.
The nose of the 2016 19 Crimes Red Blend is loaded with jammy, ripe, sweet berry notes laced with chocolate and vanilla. There’s no mistaking what you’re in for when sniffing and swirling this one. Taking a sip reveals pretty much just what you would expect – tons more jammy, juicy, almost syrupy dark berry fruit with plenty of oak manipulation. It’s darn tasty though and doesn’t come off as forced. A soft, round mouthfeel leads into the lasting finish which features more vanilla and chocolate along with lingering sweet blackberry notes. It’s not going to win any awards but it delivers just what its consumers want.
