Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Color: Deep, dark red, with an impenetrable core.

Nose: Brooding, yet compliantly permitting noticeable oak to propel dark fruits from the glass, unveiling wafts of stewed Christmas pudding (a mix of dates / sultana / fig) beneath. High notes of anise, licorice and an element of scented talc tussle with more grounded and complex savory & cold meat aromatics. Gasping for air !

: Youthful, bright dark fruits hover over a base of stewed rhubarb & quince paste. Integrated oak serves to tighten the palate rather than impart any flavor, although upon sitting, coffee-ground and barrel ferment nuances arise & linger...

Critical Acclaim

"Strong color; has the strength of all the '07 Penfolds' reds, with an array of black fruits, dark chocolate and vanilla/mocha; the tannin structure is particularly good for the vintage."
94 Points

"The most recent release of Penfolds' "Baby Grange" is a beauty, loaded with the chocomint character that has made it famous. Dark berry and cassis take over the creamy, lushly textured midpalate, finishing long an velvety. Drink now or hold up to 15 years."
91 Points

"A classic blend from Penfolds, this is a smooth 2007, emphasizing the chocolate richness of oak. The tannins have softened to creaminess in barrel, while the fruit is still youthfully tart, with scents of violets coming up from under the smoke. Cellar this several years before decanting with grilled lamb."
