Penfolds Rawrt. Shiraz/Cab Penfolds Winery-Bottle Size 4 In Stock 2006
Leave it on the shelf. Off balance. Overly tannic, although the cab should have balanced it out more.
Rating 88 Complex taste with plenty of fruit. Has a long nose of berries etc. Keeps well overnight. Good Value!!
A strong rubber smell. In mouth no so bad, with a long kind of olives and the usual hot tobacco finish.
A pleasing cranberry color. Cranberry, black current and fig on the nose. Black pepper, tart cranberry and earthy with a vegetable hint in taste. This wine is very hot on alcohol at first, so its best to give it time to breathe before drinking. Not bold or overpowering, so a good wine to enjoy with a meal, but not an exciting wine to drink on its own.
Not bad.... but I cant see how this was rated a 91? It is good, but not all that flavorful and a little acidic. Let it breath and it will imnprove quite a bit. That said, still not a bad buy under 8$.
First try with lamb chops--not good. Could not find much flavor or fruit or aroma or aftertaste. Tart blueberry at best. The following night, with pork chops, it was drinkable, but nothing special. A not-that-cheap, bland red at best.
Lamb chops, grilled. Alone before dinner, a easy to drink, fruity and mellow pleasure with cherry flavors. But it also holds up with the lamb chops, with continued cherry flavors and a slight spritz finish with very light tannins. Easy to gulp, but fun to sip to tease out the flavors. Not a greatly complex wine, but not just drinkable either. And for the price--a steal.Next day for lunch with veggie pasta: Pretty flat and a bit tart. But, that night for dinner with pork chops, a good smooth flavor with fruit and clean finish. Not as nice as first night, but good.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 91The Cabernet and Shiraz blends begin with the 2006 Shiraz (78%) Cabernet Sauvignon (22%) Koonunga Hill. Purple-colored, the wine offers meaty black currant, blackberry, and blueberry aromas. On the palate, the wine exhibits remarkable focus and structure for its humble price. The fruit is grapy and primary as well as intensely flavored. It should evolve for several years and drink well through 2022 if not longer. It is a fantastic value.Wine Tasting NotesDeep red. The nose shows notes of sweet dark plum fruits, red berries and white fruit cake aromatics. Complex spice and pepper aromas arise almost instantly upon the initial pour. There is a mocha/ coffee and vanilla lift stemming from the balanced well integrated use of seasoned oak. The palate is bright and substantial. This wine has a medium bodied, solid structure with generous dark chocolate and berried flavors and obvious, grainy tannins. The fleshy, sweet core of fruit and flavor seemingly effortlessly facilitates impressive length.

Wine Tasting NotesPremium Shiraz grapes from some of South Australia's best vineyards have been selected to maintain this consistent style and quality. The wine has excellent structure and length, and while it is ready for drinking now, will gain further complexity over the next two to four years.
