2018 Penfolds The Max Schubert Cabernet - Shiraz, Barosa Valley - Coonwarra, South Australia (750ml)
Magenta core with crimson edges. A gorgeous amalgamation of two expressive varietals, each flattering the other in a synergistic union. Ripe cherry and Swiss milk chocolate aromatics invites further investigation. A second swirl releases cabernet varietal-derived spearmint, interwoven with raspberry, cinnamon and fennel. A lovely balanced palate with fresh red currant and plum fruit backed by lively acidity. There is more than a hint of charcuterie with cured fennel sausage foremost in mind. Seasoned oak has integrated well to deliver a creamy texture and cola spice nuances. Fruit derived tannins are both fine and velvety.
Blend: 64% Shiraz, 36% Cabernet
