I have purchased this wine numerous times for myself. It is priced right, and has a nice smooth finish.

Another chapter in the steeped history of the Penfoldrsquo;s label, this wine is from the original Penfoldrsquo;s Vineyards surrounding the summer cottage of Dr. Christopher Rawson Penfold. A thirst-quenching quaffer to enjoy year round as a family favorite red.

Soft and appealing for its raspberry and white pepper flavors, showing some intensity and finishing crisp. Drink now through 2004.



Tasting Notes:

COLOR: Dark cherry red. NOSE: Lifted, fresh and lively, offering an array of ripe summer berries and dark spices, with just a touch of subtle oak lurking in the background. PALATE: A lovely balance of summer berries and light spices with soft tannins adding length on the palate. This medium bodied wine has an attractive fleshy mid-palate and juicy freshness on the finish, ideal for early drinking enjoyment.
