The most distinctive of blends considering the sources is the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon (65%)-Shiraz (35%) "Cellar Reserve." The Cabernet component is sourced from Coonawarra and the Shiraz from Barossa. Opaque purple/black in color the nose is redolent of pain grille vanilla Asian spices violets black currants and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied and firm on the palate the wine has excellent depth gobs of ripe fruit and good balance but is an infant developmentally. Give this lengthy blend 8-10 years in the cellar and drink it through 2035. 93+ -Jay Miller

Spicy floral and heady aromas of fresh blackberries blueberries and cedar/dark chocolate/vanilla oak overlie dusty earthy and almost muddy undertones. Rich and substantial its mouthfilling palate of briary blackberry plum and red berry fruits has a jujube-like quality and a racy sour-edged aspect. Framed by firm fine and drying tannins and backed by some assertive new oak it's appealing and at present uncomplicated but right on the style button for the Penfolds customer. Drink 2013-2017.
