"First produced in 1978, this classic Australian blend is named after Penfold’s renowned Barossa Valley vineyard. The 62% Shiraz shines through, with rich and spicy aromas and flavours of red and black fruits. Pure, generous and well made. Always a reliable weekday red."
(a 75/25 blend): Ruby-red. Smoke- and spice accented aromas of cassis, cherry and licorice, with a hint of black pepper in the background. Gently sweet dark berry flavors are brightened by a spicy nuance and pick up tanginess with air. Clings nicely on the finish, which features slightly rigid tannins and a subtle floral pastille quality. - 87PtsJosh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
