Garnet red rim with blood plum core. Fresh red fruits, in particular cranberry and red currants dominate the aromatic spectrum. Wafts of wild white strawberries, fresh vanilla pod and panacotta cream encourage further exploration. A further swirl reveals subtle middle eastern spice nuances of sumac and sweet paprika. The aromatic spectrum flows onto the palate with an invigorating lash of cranberries and red currants. It is a textured wine, evenly balanced with bright acidity and focused fine tannins supporting expressive red fruits. Oak derived exotic spices of nutmeg and black cardamom pod add to layers of flavor complexity.

An excellent introduction to the Penfolds Shiraz style, this is rich and chocolaty with oodles of plum, blackberry, warm pavement, green peppercorn and bay leaf. It's opulent but well-structured. There's a little alcohol warmth, but it gets wrapped in satiny fruit and spicy tannins. It's muscular but harmonious and capable of aging until around 2029.
