Penfolds Max's Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Colour: Dark reds, magenta core. Nose: Red currants, cranberry and dried Italian herbs. Palate: Cabernet line and length. Red, blue and black fruits melded with sweet spiced cinnamon. Vanilla Chai and cedar oak. Fine silky tannins add savoury balance and length to the palate.
Wine SpectatorTight and on the lean side, but not without charm. Fresh herb notes of sage and rosemary add aromatic interest to the core of cassis and plum flavors. Drink now through 2030. 15,000 cases imported.
