Just what i was looking for!

Picked up a 2006 and opened it yesterday, chilled it and served it a bit colder then recommended but what a beautiful nose on this wine. Let it warm up and sit for 10 min and it opened up very nice, i got some strawberry/blackberry and nice tannin.This is a perfect sipping wine by itself or would do great with fillet. A great find at Total wine $7.99 talk about good QPR. Getting a case today for the cellar. CHEERS!
Incredible value!

2006 Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet I was prepared to be disappointed because of the subdued nose but upon tasting I was very pleasantly surprised by a medium to full bodied palate consisting of dark fruits (blackberry with some blueberry and cranberry) accompanied by ample tannins that match the intensity of the fruit. After a while the flavors intensified further even though the nose remained subdued. Let it breathe for an hour and the tannin/fruit relationship develops further to achieve a longer finish. This indicates that this youthful beauty should develop into a near thoroughbred with three to five years of cellaring. Try it with manchego cheese. Wow! My rating at its current stage: 91 My prediction in 3-5 years: 92 or higher This is an amazing bargain. You can easily spend $15-$20 on a wine this good and with this much potential. I'm buying a case to drink during the next year and one to cellar.
A fave of mine

Wow - I love this wine! It is rich and smooth. Great for just sipping, with cheese and crackers or a meal. I don't usually go for the blends but this one is tops.
