The Top 10 Wines of 1995


Posted: January 17, 2002

Wine of the Year 1995

Penfolds Shiraz South Australia Grange 1990

Amazingly ripe, rich and opulent, with layers of earthy currant, black cherry and anise flavors that are smooth and supple. The silky texture leads into a long, lingering aftertaste that offers echoes of fruit. The tannins are fine but substantial enough to age. Best from 1997 through 2005.
