Tasting Notes:
rated: January 14, 2008 , Michael McGovern
92 points "the Suxx Shiraz was 'made to be big, bad, bold, and over the top, designed to offend and indulge and arouse.' Although the label states the wine has 15.9% alcohol, Philips says it may actually be 16.5-17%. The 2006 Shiraz was aged for 14 months in new French and American oak barriques, and hogsheads of various conditions. Purple-colored, it offers an expressive bouquet of espresso, mocha, licorice, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied, big, fat, and voluptuous in the mouth, all components including the alcohol are well-integrated. Ripe and sweet with a blanket of soft tannins, the wine will evolve for 2-3 years but can be enjoyed now and over the next 10 years." Best 2010-2018
