Vintage Tastings

    (Penfolds Grange) The 2002 Penfolds Grange was the last on our list this afternoon, recently released and only 1.5% Cabernet, also spending 17 months in oak. Gil called out ‘mandarin rind.’ It was also red in style, full of cherry and dust. More complex than the 1999, it had sweet cola flavors along with lots of citricity and just a pinch of medicine. There was more regal breed and elegance in the ’02, and it was thick, rich and young (ahhh to be that…I suppose the thick part is a result of the rich and young lol). Gil admired its ‘great potential.’ It still retained elegance despite having enough stuffing to make up for a lot of other Australian turkeys.
