2009 Henschke "Keyneton Estate Euphonium" Red Blend Eden Valley South Australia
Deep garnet, bright; a decidedly savoury bouquet showing cedar, olive, hoi sin and bramble; medium-bodied and showing a little toasty oak on the palate, the fresh acidity and minerally complexity provides a long and harmonious conclusion.
A balanced and delicious wine with soft and velvety tannins and a chocolate, dark fruit and coffee character. Full-bodied, lovely finish. Balanced.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Blended of 62% Shiraz, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, the 2009 Keyneton Euphonium has a deep garnet-purple color and is scented of warm plums, creme de cassis and blueberries over toast, salami, baking spices and tar. Medium to full bodied with rich, mouth-filling fruit, it has a great backbone of crisp acid, medium to firm finely grained tannins, and finishes long. Still taut in the mouth, it should drink best 2013 to 2020+.
