This wine is dark and dense with plum red hues
and a crimson edge. The nose shows the dark, ripe, aromatic and lifted fruit characters typical of Penfolds. Aromas of Shiraz pepper and spice are completed by notes of cut plums, wild dark fruit, Black Forest Cake, liquorice and aniseed.
Flavors of cherry chocolate, plums and dark
fruitcake fill the palate. The well balanced use of
oak adds a creamy warm texture of vanilla and
toast with a sweet mid-palate and lovely velvety
tannins on the finish.
A great buy. This is one of those less than $20 dollar that is every bit as good as an expensive high rated wine. It goes down smooth yet it has some richness to the palate. You won't go wrong with this one.
