2019 Penfolds, St. Henri Shiraz, South Australia 6x75cl

RP96+
"The St Henri Shiraz is often one of my favorite reds in the Penfolds Collection, due to the ability of the fruit to shine through the fine sheath of oak that encases it. At this stage, and I know... you will hear this often, the wine still represents good value. The 2019 St Henri Shiraz is elegantly structured, with the 2019 vintage showing the warmth and intensity without overstepping balance or line. Texturally, this will only increase in its silky shape, which comes with the gentle suggestion to decant this if you insist on drinking it within five years from harvest (i.e., anytime from now to 2024). This 2019 is shaped by abundant red and purple fruit (and a splash of blue), charry spice and fine tannins. Gorgeous." 96+ pts., Erin Larkin, robertparker.com

2020 Penfolds, Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz, South Australia 6x75cl

RP96
"Looking in on the 389 can be "'can be," she says, parenthetically) a good insight into what we can expect from the upcoming Grange. Now, they are very different wines, no question, however,... stylistically they have much in common and the illumination into the season that birthed the wines in each instance. Here, the 2020 Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz has consummate polish and sleek tannins, imbued as they are with graphite, black tea, licorice and resin. The fruit is pure and black and chewy... gorgeous wine. And it lives for decades. This has always been a collector's dream and continues so through this vintage. Highly recommended." 96 pts., Erin Larkin, robertparker.com

2019 Penfolds, Bin 128 Shiraz, Coonawarra 6x75cl

RP91
"A regional style aged exclusively in French oak hogsheads (24% new), the 2019 Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz hints at cracked pepper and cedar on the nose, backed by deep, plummy fruit and brighter notes... of red raspberries. It's medium-bodied (almost light, by Penfolds's standards), framed by silky tannins and a lingering, elegant finish. Drinkable now, it has at least a decade of longevity ahead of it." 91 pts., Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com

2017 Penfolds, Bin 128 Shiraz, Coonawarra 6x75cl

VM92
@Dark violet color. Aromas of ripe dark berries, candied flowers and baking spices, olong with hints of cola and mocha. Shows very good depth os well as energy to its sweet cherry-cold and blackberry... flovors, which spread out steadily through the bock half. Closes long, smoky and smooth, with repenting spiciness and even tannins that add subtle grip." 92 pts., Josh Raynolds, vinous.com

2017 Penfolds, Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz, South Australia 6x75cl

JR17
"Attractive and pronounced nose, notes of grilled bacon and meat with a leathery gamey note. There’s plenty of freshness and rounded but firm tannins. Excellent cedary oak spice and a linear and polished mouthfeel." 17+ pts., Alistair Cooper MW, jancisrobinson.com

2017 Penfolds, Bin 798 RWT Shiraz, Barossa Valley 3x150cl

RP98
"Sourced only from the Barossa Valley, RWT is aged exclusively in French oak, giving it two major points of difference from the rest of the Penfolds range. Always a sexy, voluptuous wine (and... admittedly a personal favorite), the 2018 RWT Shiraz ratchets that up to new heights in a great Barossa vintage, boasting layers of berry-like fruit, refined vanilla shadings and baking-spice notes, plus more exotic elements like star anise and cocoa powder. It's full-bodied and plush without being unstructured in any way, with a lingering, complex finish and the concentration to age two decades or more." 98 pts., Joe Czerwinski, robertparker.com

2020 Penfolds, Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz, South Australia 6x75cl

RP94
"The Barossa has the ability to convey a sense of place, dirt and air in the glass. The trick is to not get in the way—a cooper does not terroir make. Despite not being the dominant region in this... blend (for specificity: McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Padthaway and Clare Valley), the Barossa makes a potent contribution. Here, in the 2020 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz, the concentrated, dry and warm vintage is on show and provides a splay of earthy, dense fruit, stretched over a framework of savory tannin. Despite Penfolds's reputation for big tannins/big oak, the fruit here overpowers both and streams out over the long finish. The heart of Barossa is here. Very good. Will get better." 94 pts., Erin Larkin, robertparker.com

2020 Penfolds, Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon, South Australia 6x75cl

JR17
"Fruit from McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, Padthaway, Wrattonbully. 15 months in French (24% new) and American (12% new) oak hogsheads. TA 6.5 g/l, pH 3.6. Paler than the Bin 150. Really... intense cassis nose. Neat and fresh with lots of sweetness on the palate. Then a tense, tighter, tarry finish. Complex but still very youthful." 17 pts., Jancis Robinson
