What The Critics Say
95/100 Andrew Caillard MW
"Deep colour. Intense blackberry, mulberry praline aromas with liquorice notes. Dense and voluminous with dark plum, blackberry, mulberry flavours, plentiful fine grained textures, and praline, roasted chestnut, mocha/ espresso notes. Finishes chocolaty firm with bitter-sweet chinotto notes. A very seductive wine, well and truly in the 389 groove, with lovely richness, presence, oak balance and density to develop further. 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 47% Shiraz." Drink 2016 - 2030
95/100 Huon Hooke
"Deep, dark red/purple colour and a mysterious, foresty, profound and savoury complexity of aromas. Cabernet doesn't drive the wine and it seems androgynous, especially after the very varietal Bin 407. The palate is powerful, mightily intense and relatively high in acid. The wine is certainly noticeably more acidic than the other reds tasted at the Penfolds icon launch. It's a bit angular today. Very firm and tight, tense, and quite unready. (Higher than usual new oak: 53%)"
96/100 James Halliday
First made in ’60, and for long called ‘poor man’s Grange’, a strange name for a $90 wine. It’s always been a varietal and regional blend, once matured in hand-me-down Grange barrels, but no longer. There is much conjecture about the amount of Dom Perignon made each year, and the same is true of this wine. A bottle number could cause embarrassment. It’s seriously good, its palate of black fruits, licorice, oak and earth held tight by tannins as only Penfolds can make. 14.5% alc.
