Thursday, May 2, 2013 - Tasted at Penfolds Grange release dinner at Del Frisco's Denver.
Deep and dark. Plumy, Blackberry, spice and black licorice notes are over the top with notes of fig paste, cigar box, blueberry, boysenberry, hungarian paprika, mocha, violets, vanilla and toffee.
On the palate this personally reminds me of a Priorat or a CDP. Deep Flavors of fig paste. blueberry, and tobacco are laced with spice, aged beef, leather and anise notes. Tannins are moderate and plush on the palate balanced with acidity. Dense on the mid palate and remains so through the long finish
