Penfolds St. Henri Shiraz 2012

The 2012 Shiraz St Henri is very impressive with its elegant, sophisticated and well-crafted expression of this superb vintage... Deep garnet-purple colored, it displays a gorgeous nose of commendable purity and intensity with notes of red and blackcurrants, freshly crushed blackberries, menthol, cinnamon stick, bacon fat and cloves. Rich and already expressive on the palate, it is nonetheless built for the long haul with firm, ripe and grainy tannins carrying the fruit to a long and layered finish. This should be a long-lived St Henri that should cellar gracefully for at least 2 decades. eRobertParker.com

Very deep and complex with a lengthy tannin structure. The fruit is super bright and fresh. Hope to taste again in 10 years. :)

In a good place at the moment. Decanted and drank over a couple of days. By the second day had developed some dark black fruit flavour like plum and blueberry. But still wrapped in classic Aussie Shiraz ummph.

Smooth and soft tannins for a Shiraz with little to no hint of spice. Almost tasting like a Merlot blend instead.

Nose is mostly alcohol. Some red fruit, prunes, some spice on palate. Not overoaked. Good length. Needs time but I don't think it'll get to be anything amazing. Poor QPR.

Vollmilchschokolade, Cranberry, etwas Kirsche und roter Pfeffer in der Nase dabei leicht marmeladig. Am Gaumen erinnert er etwas an Kakao und Kirsche dazu dezente Gewürznoten und ein würziges Tannin.
