Henschke Mt. Edelstone
The 1994 Henschke Mt. Edelstone Shiraz has been a favorite of mine for many years. But it has to be said, it has now passed its development peak. The blackcurrant fruit is starting to be a little thinner, yet the wine still has excellent balance, the oak is well integrated and the tannins are soft and long. I still enjoy this wine, but I won't keep my last bottle from this year much longer.
