Community Tasting Notes 34

    July 25, 2019 - {screwcap, 14.5%} Grim stuff. Dark inky black colour. Big nose of raisins, vanilla, oak chippy notes. Raw and brutal rather then rustic. The palate is harsh, with extracted black flavours, no charm, no seduction. It,s medium/full-bodied, although that’s due to the alcohol and extract, it has harsh medium gritty tannins, a short, dry, hot finish of patchy and porty character. Goodness. This is what the once—mighty Bin 28 has come too. A basic commercial FMCG offering. As Trump would say, sad.

    May 26, 2019 - Museum release from a well known Aussie retailer. Pretty rough wine for me. You get heft, you get weight but you don't get much charm. Rich blue berry fruits, strong oak input, some heat and a certain dustiness. There is a rawness, a feeling of a lack of polish that is surprising for a Penfolds wine, especially one for the 2012 vintage. Not sure this is going to improve much more (if any).

    February 25, 2019 - Super ripe black fruit. Plum, cherry liqueur and liquorice. There is a sweetness to the fruit that makes me wonder if there is any RS here. Plenty of flavour and it is balanced but it feels a bit too slick and over worked. It lacks charm.
