Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz 2005

Member Review by Francophile:

Very nice new world wine -- the tannins of the cabernet setting off the sweetness of the shiraz nicely. A great antidote to those over-sweet Australian shiraz's here -- complex and delightful. Old world sophistication with new word fruit. A nice, affordable winner.

This was the 2012. Had it at lunch at a restaurant. Rather disappointing, seemed like the bottle had set out too long - a rather bitter alcohol burn to it. Will try a full bottle sometime. Supposedly this is a great vintage year.

Here's how it goes...you know it's good shit when you're sneaking into the bedroom to get what's left of your wife's glass from the nightstand and there's not a drop left in the glass! And it's $10.25. Amazing!

I loved the round fleshy peach taste of this wine. It's not overly sweet, has a bite to it that helps balance the fruit and tannin. Had it with venison, fresh green beans and spinach salad. Delish! Great price too, I had to admit that I bought it because I loved the label design!

Dark plum color, ripe fruit aromas, full bodied, spicy ripe fruit notes with alluring numbing effect. Tightly structured, supple, fine, seamless tannins. Finish has great balance and integrated oak.
