Deep blood-red, dense core color. On the nose, very Penfolds, very Barossa, very Grange! Scents, now five years in the making, weave their charm ? this aromatic quilt's first-noted brightest colours are panforte fig and quince paste alongside cured/smoked meats (pastrami?). Its fabric is meshed with spice ? cinnamon, vanillin pod, nutmeg and black pepper ? tempered by teppanyaki sauces, amaretto/almond. A dark thread connects ? black liquorice, olive & fresh Arabica coffee-bean and soy. Background nutty oak (Brazil nut) beneath, yet barely noticed. On the palate, freshness and balance are welcomed, yet confuse? a few sips remind of the oft-used reference ?iron fist in a velvet glove'. All is not as it seems! Firm throughout and across palate ? reverent tannins and oak convey & propel flavours of slow-roasted lamb (avec jus), dark chocolate, cola, maraschino, with a menthol/rosemary lift to finish. Alluringly, a plush satin/cashmere mouthfeel compounds the initial confusion ? accessible, yet poised to evolve and complex over many decades.
