Henschke Keyneton Euphonium 2007

This wine is a blend of 50% shiraz, 20% cabernet sauvignon, 19% merlot and 11% cabernet franc, with fruit sourced from the Barossa Valley and the Eden Valley.  I bought it from Dan Murphy’s in a half bottle, something of which there are too few.  The wine has an aroma of pepper, spices, plums and is rich.  On the palate, there is vanilla oak and some length.  The vanilla flavour is quite pronounced.  This wine is drinking well.  Less obvious oak would be better though.  85 to 86 points (7-7.1/10)

Abv: 14%
Price: $20 (for half bottle)
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Probably
