Color: Dense dark red. Nose: Instantly Penfolds - emboldened by its formic disposition and complexity. Mint/dry herb (rosemary/sage) varietal reminiscences. Wafts of Chorizo (red) sausage; tomato and red capsicum pizza base/bruschetta. Integrated, perfumed oak (polished teak, brown boot-polish). Palate: Varietally IDd and expressive - green olive and a market-garden foray - broccoli/spinach/broad beans/broad-leaf legumes. Fresh acidity coupled with 'non-shy' tannins induce structural linearity/definition/liveliness. A firm finish. A persistent 'afterglow'. Oak well-hidden, awoken with a swirl.

Finely focused, with juicy currant fruit at the core, accented by hints of red pepper and sweet spices. A blanket of fine tannins settles over the well-modulated finish. Best from 2015 through 2020. 2,715 cases imported.
