Penfolds South Australia "Max's" 2014 Shiraz/Cabernet, $19.99-$23.99, 87 points, poured core black grading Shiraz purple/red toward the broad clear wine ring and heavily draped glass bowl.
Aromatic floral cedar with ripe mulberry were pleasant.
Full-bodied with good acidity and somewhat austere tannins which overcame what negatives ascribed with rich, warm, and lively flavors of spiced black fruits and a hint of tobacco.
Finished long on the trailing palate, pomegranate, a robust 14.5% alcohol, and mucho warm spices.
Paired engagingly with my spicy chili and Monterey jack soft tacos.
Varietals were 85% Shiraz and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
