Today's Wine Tasting Note

Penfolds 1995 Clare Valley (Australia) Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz ($9.99)
Clear, dark reddish-purple in color, with spicy oak aromas over ripe red fruit. Soft and juicy fruit flavors with good, crisp acidity holding it in balance. Oak recedes on the palate to unveil tasty raspberry and apple-skin flavors in a medium-long finish. Nothing fancy here, but a good wine for sipping or washing down steaks. Certified "organic" by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia, Ltd. (NASAA) Importer: PWG Vintners USA Inc., Monterey, Calif. (July 20, 1997)

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
