97 points "Arguably the most anticipated Penfolds release of '14, this is a standout St Henri of the modern era. The gentle touch of maturation in large, old vats propels the purity and definition of a benchmark vintage. It's elegant and effortless, framing impeccable fruit in finely honed tannins; a shiraz of space, grace, and enduring longevity." Best 2020-2040

96 points "2010 St Henri is the big story of these 2014 Penfolds releases. It’s sourced from the Barossa, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Wrattonbully and Clare Valley. This release is 100% shiraz. It spent 12 months in large, old vats. St Henri is the one Penfolds super premium we all should be following. This 2010 release is the best since the 2004. In short, it’s gorgeous. I’m tempted to use the words Beg, Borrow or Steal. Nose, palate, tannin, finish; all are in full, healthy voice. Licorice, leather, plum, clove. Fine-grained tannin. Juicy orange-peel notes. Well stored, under screwcap, it will live for just about ever." Best 2020-2040
