Wine Description

A modern Penfolds classic that is at once both sophisticated and hedonistic. Dense crimson red in the glass.

    beautiful nose followed by an interesting tangy but not sour finish. the strength goes off 4 hours later leaving a more subdued nose and finish. still decent but did not exhibit typical Aussie traits.

    Deep ruby. Ripe, fresh aromas of sweet cherry, blackcurrant and chocolate, accented by gentle, sexy oak spice. Remarkably supple and elegant on the palate, with juicy, vibrant redcurrant and raspberry flavors, supported and enhanced by cinnamon, mace and candied violet. This has weight, structure and depth but it's also balanced, precise and suave, finishing on a bright, silky note, with polished, ripe tannins.
