Penfolds Grange Bin 95 Shiraz 2006

South Australia, AustraliaThere is something about the number six at Grange as in '76, '86, '96 and now 2006 although winemaker peter Gago says this Grange is more '86, '96 than '76. The blend is 98/2 shiraz/cabernet sauvignon with the requisite 18 months in 100% new American oak hogsheads. Dense rich brooding sweet voluptuous nose and attack. Alongside all 58 other edition, it begs the question could Max have made this wine? The nose is an amazing mix of smoked figs, spice and amaretto coffee. Fresh and rich but with glossy, chalky, powerful tannins, grilled meats and black fruits. Fabulous structure and power all of which suggest this one will easily last 50 years in bottle.
