PENFOLDS Shiraz Barossa Valley RWT 2000
95 points, $69
Another of Penfolds' flagship reds, the RWT rates classic in the '00 vintage. Rich in character and aristocratic in structure, a noble red that wears its subtle cherry, blackberry, chocolate, pepper and sweet spice flavors on a polished frame like a bespo —Harvey Steiman

94 points, $75
