I thought this was not good when I opened it, three hours later I'm trying to snatch my wife's glass. Big tannins. We drank this with grits, eggs and bacon...perfect match, no shit. Actually the wine I had was Koonunga Hill not Rawson's.
External Reviews for Penfolds Merlot Rawson's Retreat
This richly-flavored Merlot from South Eastern Australia has bright, plummy fruit and a long, velvety finish. Drink with light cheeses and at summer barbecues.
Light and velvety, with pretty raspberry and spice flavors that echo softly on the finish.
Cherry, grape and plum aromas with subtle herb notes. Lively and juicy red fruit aromas are accented by cranberry, mocha and oak notes. Light to medium bodied with a pleasing, fruity finish. John Perry. A Merlot wine from South Australia in Australia. 2005 Penfolds Merlot Rawsons Retreat 750ml
