Decent... Pleasant and drinking well. No need to wait, but could gain some additional complexity. #shiraz #syrah #wine #2006 #barossa #penfolds

This #wine is loved by many, gets high ratings, and is made by an iconic brand. But, I must admit it's just not my style. Big, lush, ripe, heavy, warm, slightly sweet.

Blackberry liqueur like fruit with violet floral notes. A touch of mint and coco. Thick and chewy with lovely richness but still quite fresh and lovely balance echoing the nuance from the nose through the finish. Finish 50+ most excellent needs 10 years
