Deep purple-black in color, the 2008 Grange puts forward a very complex nose packed with aromas of mulberries, layers of baking spices, cloves and cinnamon with nuances of minced meat, anise, potpourri and whiffs of dried mint and chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, taut and very spicy in the mouth, it shows touches of sandalwood and Chinese five spice complementing the layers of dark fruit flavors. It is framed by firm, grainy tannins and a refreshing acid line before finishing very long with aniseed and lingering blackberry preserves notes. This is clearly a wonderfully opulent and a magic vintage for this label. Drink it from 2018 to 2035+. Score - 100. (Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW, erobertparker.com, Feb. 2013)
Dark and liqueur chocolate, laced with Moroccan spices. An underlying tar/graphite blackness is lifted by derived fruit/quince pie flavours. Pronounced tannins sweep across the palate. Long, layered and compelling, this wine is at the spicier end of the Grange spectrum. Peak drinking for the next four to 30 years.
Deep crimson. Plush blackberry, dark chocolate, vanilla, mocha aromas. Rich and voluminous with fresh powerful blackberry, elderberry, liquorice fruit, plentiful dense chalky tannins and underlying new malty, mocha oak. A superbly concentrated wine with incredible fruit density, power and balance. A classic Penfolds year. 98% Shiraz, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Magill Estate (Adelaide).
