Penfolds Grange 2011

Huon Hooke 96 points!
Deep, rich red colour with purple tints. The bouquet starts off very oaky, and with a lot of swirling becomes richly mocha-like, peppery and dark chocolaty. Lindt dark chocolate with raspberries, to be precise. The wine is dense and fleshy in the mouth, with plenty of extract. It seems a shade lighter in body than usual, but still powerful. It's nicely balanced and smoothly-textured. The richness, density and harmony are very good indeed."

True to the vintage, this is a savoury Grange with a tangy acid profile, though it upholds an impressively full purple hue. Toasty oak is prominent (17 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads, as always, though it doesn t call for so much new oak this year). Its black fruit depth is admirable, layered with dark berry fruits and liquorice and a classic Grange hint of coal steam and crushed ants. Length is impressive and tannins are firm and fine....
