PENFOLDS RWT SHIRAZ 2003
Dark deep red.
Plush, lush, blackberry and loganberry conserve notes offer lifted sweet fruit aromas with the faintest suggestion of savoury oak. Stylistically very different from its release stablemate, 2001 Grange, with darker soy/tar notes and a trace of pepper.
A svelte, structurally tightly-bound package with good grip and definition. The sweet mid-palate is wrapped in plum, chocolate and spice flavours, while pronounced grainy tannins and cedary integrated oak court a long lingering finish
