Penfolds Bin 138 Grenache Mourvedre Shiraz from 2007 has lovely musky, violet, dark chocolate, dark berry aromas. Rich musky dark chocolate, blackberry flavours and dense, loose knit tannins. Finishes long and savoury.
The vines are 50 years of age and the grapes were dried on racks for one week prior to crushing. On the palate it is thick, rich, voluptuous, savory, and exceptionally lengthy. It demands 6-8 years of cellaring and it should provide pleasure through 2030.
The Romans honoured Anna Perenna with a festival on March 15th (March is the first month in the Roman calendar). Rich, ripe and full bodied, this unfiltered red is a parfait of mouthfilling complexity.
