93 • Ozzie Ba Ru 2006 Shiraz, Hunter Valley $17.95. Cellar Selection. Best Buy.
Opaque with a brick rim. Aromas of wild raspberry, dried plum, dusty cherry, figs, pomegranate, tomato jam, thyme, old Encyclopedia and toffee. Firm, but integrated tannins. Fruit is rich, ripe, complex and on the verge of funky, but is on that last day you can still eat a fresh fruit before it goes off the edge. Secondary aromas and flavors with layers of silky complexity. Complex and satisfying. (tasted on Sep-16-2013)
92 • Taylors 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Clare Valley $17. Best Buy.
Opaque with a ruby rim. Aromas of blackberry, black plum, dark earth, coffee, red bell pepper, cherry skin, dark chocolate, cloves and vanilla. Big, rich and robust flavors of chewy black cherries, cocoa vanilla and dark earth. Has a hint of vegetal sweet peppers, menthol, and tomato leaf. A touch boozy, but savory, well-balanced, and delicious. (tasted on Sep-16-2013)
92 • Ti Point 2012 Pinot Noir, Marlborough $19.99. Best Buy.|Find-a-Wine|
Deep ruby red with a light red rim. Aromas of red cherries, raspberries and plums with beets and vanilla spice cake. Silky and voluptuous with the flavors of the fruits on the nose framed with a touch of earthy spice. Balanced and classic, long cherry-mushroom-spice Pinot Noir finish. Very classy.
