2010 BLACKJACK SHIRAZ  

Bright, clear crimson-purple; the bouquet has fragrant blackberry and plum fruit that signals the beautifully weighted and textured palate, flooded with berry fruits; like Block 6, is medium-bodied, presenting its flavours without effort. Impossible to split the two on quality.  95 POINTS

2010 BLACKJACK BLOCK 6 SHIRAZ

Bright crimson; a slightly firmer and darker-berried version of the Bendigo Shiraz, both estate grown;the spice and black fruits break free on the back palate and finish, with a lovley, juicy burst; oak and tannins play a pure support roll.  95 POINTS

2010 BLACKJACK CABERNET MERLOT

An elegant, medium-bodied bless that has sweet fruit and oak running throughout the bouquet and palate; although curious why it doesn't have more bite, but will probably have appeal for the reason.
90 POINTS

**** 2009 Blackjack Shiraz
Deep plush and fleshy,this nicely concentrated Shiraz has a balanced fruit and oak aroma,with meat-stock and toasty barrel-ferment overtones.It's luxuriously deep in flavour and the palate texture is a highlight. a loverly red wine.

90**** 2009 Blackjack Block 6 Shiraz
A bright colour and aroma reflect a fresh,youthful slightly tangy wine which looks to have a good future. The herbal fruit and walnut oak characters result in a savoury bouquet: the palate is lively and firm, vibrant and full of promise.

Tasting Notes:

2009 Blackjack Block 6 Shiraz
Similar colour to standard wine, although with a touch more purple. Like its sibling 100% estate grown, but a bright more focused palate, with more spice and less leather;excellent finish      95 Points


2009 Blackjack Shiraz
The colour isn't entirely clear, suggesting no filtration. A powerful full bodied wine that derives its power from fruit rather than tannins or oak,with black fruits,liquorice and leather running from bouquet to the finish on the palate. 94 Points


2009 Blackjack Cabernet Merlot
A 90/10% bland open fermented and matured in French oak for 22 months;neither fined or filtered;clear in colour, this is an elegant wine no more than medium bodied, the tannins superfine, and defining the long,even, slightly savoury finish. 92 Points
