A lip-smacking mix of vibrant berry and cherry flavors that give way to green tea, toasted herb and cedar notes. Finds plenty of harmony on the finish, with the juicy acidity blending in with the dense, chewy tannins. Drink now through 2027.

Product Description:

"Deep dense magenta. The very first impression? Instantly Penfolds. Some barrel-ferment nuances perhaps? A formic lift, V.A., regressive oak? Maybe all listed are guilty partners! Higher notes reveal custard tart and brûlée, courting meaty pan-scrapings/juices. Yet beneath, a darker edge – black pudding, sweetbread, asphalt. Moreover, not just an ‘offal’ offering – an aromatic veil of satsuma plum, fig and quince paste aromatics liberally sprinkled above. Enticing, inviting. A taste continuum of assorted flavors and textures. A spoil of fruits meshed with a grain-like paste– chaff/oats/barley/wheat germ….At once chewy and succulent, heightened by a mouth-watering acidity and overt 2015 ‘elongated’ tannins. Oak barely perceivable. An interesting ‘package’ where upon nothing stands out! A ‘balanced completeness"- Winery
