Henschke 2016 Henry's Seven Red (Barossa)
This vintage of Henry's Seven leads with 66% Shiraz (the rest is made up of Grenache, Mataro and Viognier) although the eucalyptus and tobacco leaf aromas trick you into thinking there must be some Cabernet in here. Green olives, coffee grounds, raisiny plums and currant fruits and a copper penny tang are all present, too, precisely put together like a neatly wrapped present, in Henschke's typically poised and polished style. A silky texture, powdery tannins and a leafy nuance mark the finish. Drink now–2027. Christina Pickard

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
