i didn't include any cabs. because most cab does need more oak than shiraz to combine with each other,from the list i tried not to include wines that are oak dominated so others can give it a try , it takes a special vineyard to made special wines,more unique and complex.Thanks for the list.
The only one I’ve tried multiple times is Amery and while it’s very nice Shiraz I wouldn’t put it in the same league as RWT. Block 6 on the other hand I do rate over RWT. Looking at past purchases only four years ago I got it for $55 so it would almost qualify for the list sadly these days the price almost doubled.
Most of my penfolds are bin389 and st henri, only a hand full of rwt and 707, that doesn't mean penfolds are bad, its just so overpriced . its driven by quantities that sales overseas rather than its quality. my last bin389 cost me less than $45 and i use to buy them on first release, nowadays i only buy penfolds like many others, special + giftcards + cashback.
