Most of the group picked this out blind, I suspected a Grange from an off year. Still rich and beasty, an old warhorse game enough for an Ozzy assault on the palate and nostrils. Dark red leather, earthy, voluptuous but perfectly knit. Seamless. Years to go.

1999 #Penfolds 'St Henri' #Shiraz, South #Australia. Powerful & classic Aussie style, super ripe black cherry, plum intermixed with eucalyptus, cedar and savory herb notes, vanilla spice and a soft, silky finish. Still so young at 16 years old. #wine #sommelier #nomnom

Lovely and smooth. Very, very dark ruby red; almost black. Delicious!! Some sediment so probably really needed to be decanted.
