2009 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1416621 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark At this youthful stage, this deep garnet-purple colored wine puts forward a vivid expression of blackberry preserve aromas amid underlying cassis, black cherry, spice box, char-grilled meat and chocolate box notes. Surprisingly medium to full-bodied (it smells much fuller!) with taut flavors that are very closed in the mouth, it has firm, chewy tannins to structure through the long and earthy finish. 406 cases imported to the US. Drink it 2018 to 2035+. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2014)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A tiny 2% Cabernet component in 2009, this is sourced from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley and Magill Estate and has spent 18 months in exclusively new American oak hogsheads. The depth and complexity on offer is straight up impressive, blue and black fruit aromas unwind, meaty at times, some dark green herbal notes and a cedary layer of oak lurking below. The palate has a core of essence-like flavour with plenty of oak-derived spice framed around blackberry, blood plum and cola. Tannins are smooth and even, flavours are gently glazed around the dark fruit spectrum, some blue fruits too. This is a wistful Grange that, as always, faithfully reflects the vintage. Inner quote mark (3/2014)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Cellar Selection* Huge dill and vanilla aromas wrap around intense mixed-berry fruit, ending on notes of espresso and dark chocolate. It’s full bodied and richly textured, but perhaps a bit coarse as well. This may not be the biggest, baddest or longest-lived Grange, but it maintains the Grange standard of excellence. (JC) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Inky ruby. Intense spice- and mineral-accented aromas of cherry pit, blackberry and plum, with smoke and floral qualities adding complexity. Taut and linear on entry, then fleshier in the mid-palate, offering zesty dark fruit and violet pastille flavors and hints of licorice and vanilla. Finishes smoky, spicy and very long, with youthfully firm, building tannins adding grip. In a relatively taut, wound-up style for this wine; by all means give it some age. (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2014)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark *Collectibles* Aromatically pure, with beautiful focus to the blueberry, black currant, espresso and cream character. In the mouth this sprouts prickly tannins and picks up a distinct tomato leaf note that sends the wine in a different direction. This has depth, length and plenty of ripeness without excess weight, but lacks the complete harmony of the best vintages. Best from 2016 through 2030. (HS) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This vintage is predominantly Shiraz, with two percent Cabernet Sauvignon; the fruit comes from estate vineyards and Grange growers in Barossa, McLaren Vale, Clare and Penfolds’ original site at Magill. It has the blast of intensity in the initial scent that announces Grange, its explosive power continuing in the mouth, where the wine feels centered, the fruit finely ripened, the grape skin tannins integrating new oak into a scent of Indian spice. Dynamic and balanced to age for decades. Inner quote mark (10/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. Youthful crimson. Extremely spearminty! Sweet start. I assume this is Australian. Muscular. Fairly dry tannins on the end but masses of clean dry fruit on the way there. Big and bold on the finish. Glossy and exuberant. 18+/20 points. Drink 2020-2040. (JR) Inner quote mark (9/2015)
