External Reviews for Penfolds Cellar Reserve Cabernet Shiraz Australia
Spicy, floral and heady aromas of fresh blackberries, blueberries and cedar/dark chocolate/vanilla oak overlie dusty, earthy and almost muddy undertones.

A Proprietary Blend wine from South Australia in Australia. 2005 Penfolds Cabernet-Shiraz Cellar Reserve 750ml
Colour: Impenetrable purple. Nose: This is an archetypal Penfolds nose of yore - stylish ripe fruit aromas with ethereal barrel ferment characters hovering above...aka Kenyan dark roasted coffee/mocha. Ripe fig, fresh liquorice and an oscillating Cabernet and Shiraz interplay make for, as they say, a classic Australian Red aromatic offer. Palate: The palate is tight, solid and firm. Flavours are textured and layered - talc-like, grainy, fine tannins interweave with raspberry and other red fruit notes. With air, cinnamon and demi-glace pan juices slowly arise, although it is clear that not all is yet revealed. The 100% new oak is seen, but not heard. This wine demands a big glass, and when young more than a double decant!
