I love when I get a few new wines from Wine Chateau…they always have great deals on a pretty impressive array of wines. Last week I received a few wines from them and decided to uncork a bottle of Penfolds Bin 2 Shiraz Mourvedre first. A rich blend at a great price!
About the Wine- From the Winery
Penfolds Bin 2 2010 is a blend of 88% Shiraz and 12% Mourvedre from regions across Australia. The wine has 14.5% alcohol and retails for $14.97 at www.winechateau.com.
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
Penfolds Bin 2 pours a deep, reddish plum color. Rich aromas of blackberries, plums, and leather come from the glass. The palate is packed full of dark berries, black cherries, plums, and warm spices. A luscious blend of intense flavors…great job by Penfolds!
My Wine Rating- B+
Food Pairing Suggestions- Pair this blend with burgers, pork chops, or cheese and mushrooom quesadillas
