A Luscious Blend from Penfolds!

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
