Penfolds St. Henri Shiraz 2015
The 2015 Shiraz St. Henri needed plenty of air to shine (I followed this wine for three days) but is a rich, beautiful wine. Ripe black raspberries, incense, minty herbs, and liquid violet notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, layered, concentrated Shiraz that’s impeccably balanced. It doesn’t have the broad, multi-dimensional texture found in the 2016s but is classic, focused, and structured. Give bottles another 3-4 years, and it will keep for 10-15 years.
