Rating: JH 95 / JS 91
Tasting Note by Jamie Halliday: Matured for 12 months in used American oak. Like all the Penfolds '16 red wines, flawless colour and clarity heralds a bouquet that leaps out of the glass with a heady perfume of roses, bramble, spice and licorice. The palate duly delivers an effortless wave of dark chocolate, cherry and licorice.
