Penfolds Thomas Hyland 2006 Shiraz

Penfolds Thomas Hyland 2006 Shiraz, Adelaide, Australia, $11.99-$14.99, 89 points, appears quite a clear ruby color, with a light sweet aroma, and medium body with a rich mouth-feel. This Shiraz reminds me a bit of a light high elevation California Zinfandel with hints of strawberry and red cherry, damson plum and licorice. The finish has some spice and some heat from the wine's 14.5% alcohol.
I liked this wine, but it suffers from a one dimensional (Though delicious) character, but for under $15.00 this is a buy, and I'll be looking for more recent vintages.

Penfolds almost always makes a great wine at all price-points and across all vintages, making this another go-to winery.

Question: How many wines tasted in one day does it take for you to look like Lucy?
