1992 was a lighter year for Grange giving more herbal notes than full throttle berry. Medium weight with impeccable balance as always. Trademark choc malt with Liquorice notes. Interestingly in Penfolds book they normally over estimate the cellaring potential IMO particularly for the big years but for the 1992 they say thru to 2018 which I think is about right. Always an experience drinking a Grange. PS If you have any 1992s no need to urgently drink them. I have 2 or 3 left and will probably drink them in the next year or 2. Unlike the 1990 and particularly the 1991 which will cellar for a long time yet. Penfolds say through to 2040!

The visual experience just doesn't get any better. The bouquet is pure poetry. Then you taste it. And just like Barbra sang... "And suddenly... nothing, nothing is the same..." It greets you with a chocolate/mint combination. But then, just when you think you have it all figured out, the peacock spreads its feathers. Beauty has a whole new meaning. Absolutely in love with this wine.

Absolutely one of my TOP TEN WINE EXPERIENCES OF 2014! Pales in to the incredible 2008 which I enjoyed in 2013. Deep ruby, black color; super-fine and ultra-rich, yet deftly elegant aroma of bold black fruits, incredibly classic and youthful, one of the most exciting young wine aromas I have experienced; medium bodied, rich and substantive on the palate, seamless with sweet tannins; black fruit, a light twist of American oak; long finsh, lusty aftertaste. This is a pretty amazing wine, very close to the incredible 2008. (Best Served: 2020-2045)
