Tasting Note :
The Penfolds Bin 95 Grange Shiraz 2008 has an impenetrable dark core. An immediate and powerful lift of cola, soy, hoisin, red licorice, propelled by tea-smoke and ferric influences. Less obvious nut-husk, tan-bark notes align with lush aromas of ripe (jamon-wrapped) figs and a panaforte plushness. With air, blueberry fruits and mocha arise, the oak (100% new!) remaining concealed—too much aromatic background chatter to register! A muscular push across the entire palate—from start to finish. Never oppressive nor ungainly, yet captivatingly forceful. i.e. a vinous lava flow of dark licorice and malt—‘molten’, with a self-saucing chocolate pudding richness and blackberry, elderberry fruits. Pronounced tannins are unleashed, and the Clare component makes its (9%) presence felt, adding to both flavour pool and extract. Power and density naturally respectful of balance and structure.  RP100
