Delicious! Plums with the softest tannins and a well rounded structure

Bold black pepper, red/black plums and a vague baking spice on the nose. The pepper dominates once you taste it, with red berries on the back end and some vegetal qualities. Paired with a charred filet is the perfect way to enjoy this, the flavors pair so goddamn well.

Rich, dark opulent wine. Don't taste the American oak but gives great sweetness and texture to the wine.

Crazy dark color, toasty sweet oak spice, dark fruits, long finish. Big Aussie red, pair it with classic Australian fair such as the blooming onion or Vegemite sandwich 😉.

Very nice, dark color, wood and leather, black fruits, very elegant and powerful at the same time, expected from a Penfolds.

Blackberry coulis black cherry liqueur max Schubert hired in the 1938's as a winemaker he had to leave to fight ww2 and he was first chef winemaker in 1948 1950 he went to Bordeaux. Black licorice spice he visited chateau d'yquem and hated it but loved the reds extended maceration barrel fermentation in 1951 he creates the first vintage of grange Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz but had no can so cab so the first two grange were all Shiraz they continued to plant more Cabernet and created two granges a de years later one from Shiraz and one from Cabernet. Has lovely complexity on he nose jammy and ripe black berry fruit. Very silky smooth and velvety. Kalimna was a single vineyard owned by penfolds in 1943. D equates this vineyard to vosne romance interesting. 178 acres they produce all ranges of penfolds wines from this vineyard first made this wine in 1958 as a single vineyard wine very big and chewy but it still has elegance like all of penfolds wines red and black fruit. The 1996 is very soft and elegant on the palate very elegant with a bit of materized but still has some fruit
