Colour: Dense crimson red.
Nose: Rich, saturated, Christmas pudding-like fruit and stylish French oak are immediately obvious, followed by more subtle aromas of dried glace fruits and underlying dark liquorice and prune.
Palate: A sleek, luscious Barossa Valley Shiraz in which a core of blueberry fruit and ripe tannins contribute to phenomenal length of flavour. There is also a refined, luxurious,
praline-like flavour and texture. Still very youthful, with oak more integrated on the palate than the nose, indicating a great cellaring future. A modern Penfolds classic that is at
once both sophisticated and hedonistic.
