Ruby-red. Pinot-like red fruits, minerals and flowers on the nose, with a gentle baking spice undertone. Sappy and fresh, with vivid raspberry, cherry and smoky mineral flavors. Gains weight and sweetness with air but maintains vivacity, finishing clean, brisk and juicy.

The 2006 Plexus is composed of 52% Shiraz, 30% Grenache, and 18% Mourvedre. Purple-colored, it offers up an exotic concoction of underbrush, violets, leather, black cherry, and blueberry pie. On the palate, this sexy effort is opulent, succulent, incipiently complex, and altogether hedonistic. It should perform well for a decade. In the scheme of things, it is also a terrific value. John Duval was the principal winemaker at Penfolds Grange from 1986 to 2002.

Sappy and fresh, with vivid raspberry, cherry and smoky mineral flavors. Gains weight and sweetness with air but maintains vivacity, finishing clean, brisk and juicy.Wine Tasting NotesJohn Duval, after 28 years with Penfolds, has released his second vintage of "Plexus", under his proprietary label, John Duval Wines. Inspired by Barossa Valleys best old vine, low yielding vineyards, the 2004 Plexus is a blend of Shiraz (49%), Grenache (27%) and Mourvedre (24%). Intense and elegant, Plexus expresses rich, red fruit aromas with savory spice and subtle oak sweetness. Plexus is an intricately structured blend comprised of rich and vibrant fruit from Barossa Valley's old, low yielding vines. A true refection of Barossas soil and climate, the 2004 Plexus expresses a supple and silky mouth feel and a ripe red fruit finish. Intense and elegant, Plexus exhibits impressive concentration and structure with a seamless balance

Winemaker's Notes:

The aim with Plexus is to express the wide spectrum of red fruit flavours from Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre, but also provide structure with a seamless balance and long finish. A low percentage of new oak adds complexity rather than dominate the berry fruit. Traditional, low intervention winemaking techniques are employed with Plexus, allowing the wine to be approachable in its youth but also have great potential for improvement in the bottle, under good cellaring conditions, for at least 8-10 years. Robert Parker 95 points.
