Alcohol/vol 14.5%
Color: Opaque black core, dark red rim. Nose: An aromatic assault / surge / eruption of soy, hoisin, balsamic reduction ... coiled around a core of kirsch and fresh raspberry. This propulsion is crammed with tell-tale barrel ferment, V.A. and formic Grange markers - all in balance, all respectful of fruit and oak. And yet, so 'classy' - a brightness, a sheen, a gloss, a raciness - belying both age and upbringing (élevage).

Penfold's latest Grange release delivers all of the power, rich fruit and toasty oak Australia's most famous wine is noted for. It is incredibly beguiling though, even in its infancy. Autumnal notes of dried leaves, flowers, sap and dark berries abound, with a raw meat and miso savoriness. The power on the palate is balanced by ultrafine tannins and a finesse that makes this drinkable now with plenty of time in decanter and paired alongside roast lamb, beef, or something equally hearty. Still, it'd be a shame not to cellar for at least the next five years. Revisit in 7, 15, or 30 years.
