Community Tasting Notes 39

  • Uglypinga Likes this wine:

    November 22, 2014 - Beefy nose with flowers and bright berries. The palate is medium in weight with crunchy berries. Long finish with a hint of green herbs. I liked this a lot.

    November 21, 2014 - Penfolds Tasting with 5 vintages of Grange and a bunch more (Downtown Cleveland): Not quite the wine the 98 is, but give it time apparently. The nose has black raspberries and some black pepper. softer texture and a bit thinner than the 98. A bit of coffee on the finish. Firm tannins. Slight heat as well. Drinks like a middle of the road, quality Aussie Shiraz at the moment.

    July 17, 2014 - Just out of the bottle the overwhelming sensation was of "heat" (alcohol) but by the second day this had moderated considerably allowing nice black fruit to come through along with moderate tannins and long pleasant finish. Worth the price if you give it time and air to open up.

    June 23, 2014 - Beaucoup de matière, de fruits, tanins assez présents mais BEAUCOUP trop de médicament pour que ce soit intéressant. Est-ce que le temps aidera?

    May 16, 2014 - Just a superb Shiraz in the Penfold's tradition. Been 2 years since my last one and it has continued to improve. Decanted for 2 hours and it was singing at that point.
    Vibrant nose of cherries and berries with a long finish. Velvet in the mouth. Great with a ribeye steak. Id you like Shiraz and you like Penfolds you will love this wine.
    Many years left for this wine.
