91pointsPenfolds 2016 RWT Bin 798 Shiraz (Barossa Valley)

Cellar Selection

This vintage of RWT is flashy and full-bodied, requiring a good deal of cellaring before oak and fruit to come together. At the moment, ripe, opulent fruit notes—blackberry, currant and plum—ride along aromas of coffee and cumin. The barrel influence on the palate is even more prominent but the fruit is plush and tangy. The tannins are fine-grained and well-structured, setting this up for at decade or more of aging. Wait a least until 2020 before cracking it open, though. Christina Pickard
