"When I was writing about this Penfolds RWT Shiraz 2005 in the first edition of the Big Red Wine Book I called it “seductive, but not at all tarty”. Re-tasting it now I can see what I meant. It’s a luscious, sweet-centred, bold wine, jammed full of blueberried fruit and clipped with toasty, cedary, creamy oak.
This too is fragrant and full, its violetty aromatics and power through the finish clear signals of its outstanding quality. This is a champion wine, for the long haul. 97 Points/Drink 2015-2025" - Campbell Mattinson
