COLOUR Deep blood-red, dense core.

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 panaforte fig and quince paste alongside cured/smoked meats. 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 and fresh

Arabica coffee-bean and soy. Background nutty oak (Brazil nut) beneath, yet barely noticed.

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.
