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.

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

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.
