Plush and generous with layers of red and dark berry fruits that give way to some complex spice and earthy nuances are the hallmarks here. There's a lot to like with its medium weight intensity that finishes with a savoury edge and fine drying tannins.

'FOR an old company with such deep Barossa roots and a long history of multi-region blending, Penfolds came late to producing straight Barossa reds on a regular basis. But it now offers several, including the subregional Bin 150 (below) and Bin 138. In the cool, wet 2011 vintage, shiraz dominates the Bin 138 blend, grenache provides aromatic high notes and bright fruitiness to the palate and mataro adds spice and structure. The generous, dark, earthy, spicy, fruity red with firm, chunky tannins – a solid, chewy wine to enjoy over the next couple of years.'
