Penfolds St Henri Shiraz 2004

Description

St Henri is rich and plush when young, gaining soft, earthy, mocha-like characters as it ages. It is matured in old, 1460-litre vats that allow the wine to develop, imparting minimal, if any oak
character.  Although a small proportion of Cabernet is sometimes used to improve structure, the focal point for St Henri remains Shiraz.

COLOUR Dense, dark red with a very dark core.
NOSE The bouquet is intense, dense and spicy – notes of nutmeg, lavender, rosemary and musk with evocative wafts of black and red liquorice arising.  Some floral aromas are present, although assorted fruits dominate with glazed cherries, prune (fruitcake mixture) to the fore.  Close inspection reveals aged pipe tobacco and roasted lamb juice and quince complexities.
PALATE The palate is, in a word, exceptional!  Everything demanded of a top-notch St. Henri palate is delivered. The ripe, rounded and finely textured tannins, courted by vibrant (zingy) acidity, certainly induce a youthful disposition.  Medium-dark cherry fruits are complexed by cold roasted lamb and black pudding flavours – layered and dense.
