"21 months in American Oak. Black and garnet coloured. Menacing to look at. Bouquet closed but revealing hints " lots of hints. Wild brambly black currants, cassis, floral notes, cedar, cigar box, the tool shed of exotic spice. Where complex bouquets wish they could go. Richly flavoured palate, supple and elegant almost, yet still a massive mouthcoating presence showing an ilk of medium weight but offers clobbering concentration and intensity. Jumble. Has punching tannins that build and molest and then drag the wine long, and into dusty spice and grip " fruit feels just that bit dried out. A tightly wound wine, needs to open and reveal more. One of the true keepers though. Incredible focus and length, but a wine in stasis. Hard to look at now, but do if you can."

"The hallmark of Grange is assertiveness, and this release is that. It doesn't take a backward step. Its tannin peddles as hard as it can to thread its way into the fruit. Its oak - spicy, slippery, creamy " has settled beautifully into the dense, robust, blackberry-and-plum fruit. Some pepper notes too " unusually for a young Grange. I wouldn't call it complex but then, in Grange terms it's an infant."

"A very contemporary, richly fruited and opulent Grange that is already very smooth and approachable. it's very ripe and perfumed, scented with meaty aromas of cassis, blackberries, dates and figs knit with sweet, fine-grained mocha-like oak. Long, sweetly flavoured and backed by gamey complexity, it drips with intense, sumptuous fruit handsomely integrated with oak and polished, pliant tannins. With time it should more closely resemble the classical Grange benchmark.Drink 2027-2037"

"The 2007 Penfolds Grange is comprised of 97% Shiraz and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon coming predominately from Barossa vineyards with smaller proportions from Magill Estate and McLaren Vale. It was matured for 21 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads. Very deep garnet-purple in color, the nose is intensely scented of vibrant blueberry preserve, mulberry and kirsch aromas over hints of cedar, mocha, vanilla and anise. The full bodied palate is richly fruited with pure black berry and baking spice flavors offset by crisp acidity and a firm level of velvety tannins, finishing long. This is quite an opulent, forward Grange, which is very tempting to drink now, though of course will reward at least 5-10 years of cellaring and should keep to 2030+."
