Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Robert Oatley Vineyards James Oatley Tic Tok Shiraz 2009 Wine Review
Enticing mocha-dark chocolate aromas on the nose with a hint of mint followed by big, fleshy dark plums on the palate. Vibrant acidity makes this full-bodied a great match for a variety of hearty meat dishes. 4.4/5 Shiraz food pairings: grilled steak, hamburgers.

|Sumptuous and velvety, with rich fruits and subtle French Oak. The complexity and length of this contemporary Australian shiraz reflects its unusual provenance – a blend of Frankland River WA, Mudgee NSW. The numerous separate parcels were fermented on skins (for colour, tannin and flavour) for 12-14 days, with moderate pump-overs to keep the tannins|
soft rather than firm. The majority of the blend was matured in one to two year old French oak for 15 months, with a portion kept in stainless steel to retain vibrant fruit characters. Its deep colour leads to a ripe, rich fruitcake aroma along with some spicy
characters. Generous in the mouth, the red berry fruits give way to nutmeg, mocca and dark chocolate notes, rounded tannins and a firm finish.
