Beat out a $34 bottle at a tast testing. Ignor the screw top bottle and enjoy

I have purchased this wine numerous times for myself. It is priced right, and has a nice smooth finish.

I have a particular patients with Penfold’s due to when I began drinking wine, the first few where Penfold’s. I have always been a fan of Rawson’s Retreat Shiraz/Cab, it’s a good wine for its price. I will admit that the 2006 vintage was less enjoyable but that was across the board with Aussie wines in my opinion. 2007 was supposed to be a bad year but I am pleased with most I have tried. The particular wine has a rich nose, full of plumb. It has a medium to full body, tannins a little higher then I normally enjoy, but the big fruit leaves this wine only slightly unbalance. The finish is smooth, and would pair well with a fat juicy steak. Mmmmmm steak. Moving on… Any flaws I find in this wine are quickly subdued by its unbeatable price. Drink Up.

Another chapter in the steeped history of the Penfoldrsquo;s label, this wine is from the original Penfoldrsquo;s Vineyards surrounding the summer cottage of Dr. Christopher Rawson Penfold. A thirst-quenching quaffer to enjoy year round as a family favorite red.

Soft and appealing for its raspberry and white pepper flavors, showing some intensity and finishing crisp. Drink now through 2004.

This wine is an affordable, everyday, easy-drinking wine and is a classic Australian marriage of fruit power and structure.The fruit is drawn from various South Australian wine regions, in particular

A Proprietary Blend wine from South Australia in Australia. 2007 Penfolds Shiraz / Cabernet Rawsons Retreat 750ml



Tasting Notes:

COLOR: Dark cherry red. NOSE: Lifted, fresh and lively, offering an array of ripe summer berries and dark spices, with just a touch of subtle oak lurking in the background. PALATE: A lovely balance of summer berries and light spices with soft tannins adding length on the palate. This medium bodied wine has an attractive fleshy mid-palate and juicy freshness on the finish, ideal for early drinking enjoyment.
