Tait The Wild Ride 2019
The Wild Ride (Shiraz/Grenache/Mourvedre) – (SRP $23) – (15’ 90 WA)(14′ 90 WA)(13′ 92 JS, 90 ST) (18′ 91 Josh Reynolds) Barossa Valley. Following the success of Ball Buster, Bruno developed his take on a GSM. After trying unsatisfactorily to produce a wine that was Grenache predominant (as the acronym would suggest), he found more success with a Shiraz based interpretation. The wine is named as it is, in honor of the 4 year struggle to perfect the recipe, and unlike The Ball Buster, has nothing to do with his wife, Michelle.
Rich cherry red color, with concentrated aromas of mulberry, spice, rosemary and earthiness with hints of vanilla that jump from the glass. The palate is rich showing ripe and rich fruit, great length and a velvety soft lingering finish.
