    Grange And Sassicaia 24 Hours Of Decanting Later, Episode #507, 7/23/2008, (See more on Wine Library TV...) 90+ points

    (Penfolds Grange) #2; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-this has changed dramatically from yesterday; I'm getting a gasoline/auto body shop component; very herbaceous today; the fruit & Oak have subsided dramatically; stinky like the game "Skunk War"; vegetal soup (celery); TASTE-similar on the palate; Oak Monster is there; the beautiful fruit is there (peach; blackberry; blueberry); some petrol sneaking in; much drier on the back-end; a very focused blackberry flavor ripping throughout the flavor profile and a little more vegetal; better than yesterday, but still a PAZZZZ; WS-94; GV-90+

    (Penfolds Grange) #2; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-tons of fruit; explosive; but the Oak monster is looming; vanilla cream & wood; black cherry soda; TASTE-I'm completely dumbfounded by the way this wine tastes; this tastes the same (an over-oaked fruit bomb) as quite a few $20-$40; too over-oaked and too much fruit; this wine is living on it's name; Penfolds needs to redefine their terroir IMHO; WS-94; GV-89
