Penfolds 2008 St Henri Shiraz
Australia

A leader in Australian Shiraz, Penfolds released its first Grange Shiraz in 1951. Just six years later, the winery began producing the St Henri Shiraz, notable for its lack of new oak. Today, the wine is aged in 50-year-old vats. Sourced from vineyards in the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek and Adelaide Hills, the 2008 St Henri is composed of 91 percent Shiraz and 9 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. Full-bodied and ripe, it boasts spicy dark fruit flavors and firm tannins. Pair it with grass-fed beef or venison.
