Penfolds 'RWT' Barossa Valley Shiraz 2006.. Bottle Shot

The Australian Wine Companion (James Halliday) – Rated 96 Points
2006 Penfolds ‘RWT’ Shiraz (Barossa Valley)- “Great colour; oozes blackberry and licorice from the bouquet, and then improbably gains greater impact on the dense, plush palate; just when you think that is it, the freakishly vibrant and juicy finish and aftertaste take over.”

Jeremy Oliver – Rated 95 Points
2006 Penfolds ‘RWT’ Shiraz (Barossa Valley)- “A richer, plumper and more concentrated RWT which manages to retain its customary elegance and charm. Its sweet, heady bouquet of violets, jujube-like blueberries, blackberries and cassis is backed by cedar/chocolate vanilla oak, while its luscious, silky-smooth palate of fine length and full to medium weight reveals a full spectrum of ripe and just slightly meaty and raisined fruits. There’s plenty of richness, weight and presence, with a lingering impression of juicy flavour and harmony.”

The Wine Advocate (Jay Miller) – Rated 95 points
“The 2006 RWT Shiraz was aged for 14 months in 70% new French oak hogsheads. The winery describes its style as opulent and fleshy compared to Grange’s muscular and assertive personality. Opaque purple in color, it offers aromas of Asian spices, beef juice, toast, blueberry, and licorice. Rich, fleshy, and round, it has plenty of underlying tannin, impeccable balance, and a long, pure finish. It will deliver prime drinking from 2014 to 2030.”
