Don't let the label scare you! This blend of Grenache and Syrah is brooding with richness – deep violet in colour with powerful aromas of vanilla, oak, grape jam and baking spices. Concentrated dark fruit flavours wash over the palate framed by the generous, almost sinful body of the wine. Baking spice, dark chocolate, vanilla and hints of dark fruit comprise the lengthy, plush finish.
Full and dense, with strong black & blue fruit notes up front from the Petite Sirah, complemented by bright red, slightly candied fruit in the background from the Zinfandel. The darkly toasted oak ties it all together along with a slightly sweet finish.
Bold and strong in character, this deep rich and golden Chardonnay is filled with stone fruit aromas and a sweet textured palate. The criminally intense toasty oak notes have hints of butterscotch and honey balanced with layers of ripe fruit. This full bodied, powerful wine finishes with rich notes of butter and vanilla.
The colour of this 2017 Pinot Noir is a medium intense burgundy with a youthful purple rim. Lifted notes of cherry and strawberry fruit complement rich vanillin overtones giving warm and inviting aromas on the nose of this wine. The palate is medium-bodied with soft, round tannins, cherry and strawberry fruit with sweetness which complements the vanilla and spice oak undertones. All these elements combined create a well-balanced, enjoyable wine with a long finish.
The Uprising, a new wine from 19 Crimes that is aged for 30 days in Rum Barrels, pays homage to Australia’s Rum Rebellion of 1808. Due to the Government's hindering of the rum trade, citizens and soldiers banded together to overthrow them. A portion of this wine is aged in Rum barrels, lending a warm brown sugar finish to this dark jammy wine.
Don't let this masterful blend escape you. Each powerful note brings you one step closer to a night filled with mischief and fun. The Warden is a Shiraz-based red blend with tons of richness and complexity. On the nose, there is ample plum, currant, and cherry intermixed with vanilla and cinnamon spice. The same flavour profile is evident in the mouth, picking up some licorice notes.
