Some Young Punks Double Love Trouble 2008

I am not sure of the blend for this wine because the back label says it is 60% Tempranillo and 40% Cabernet, whereas the website says it is 70% Adelaide Hills Tempranillo and 30% Clare Valley Shiraz. On tasting I would lean towards to the latter, because I saw more plummy fruits than any Cabernet characters. But I could easily be wrong. A sweet nose, with plums and meat, milk chocolate and deep seated spices. The palate showed black fruits and cola, pastille sweetness, but also an odd chemical character. Soft and fluffy, and for me it really needed some savouryness and a bit more structure. Drink 2010-2014. Sealed under screwcap. 14% abv. RRP $25. 86 points
