Penfolds RWT 2012
Brooding upon opening and first-pour, yet soon to reveal a living/alive masterstock aromatic continuum: The sweet - saturated fresh Christmas pudding mix, Irish quince paste with glaceed cherries, dark (85% cocoa) chocolate (Arabica beans). The savoury - cured Iberian pork, ground pistachio nut, tamari paste, soy, liquorice root. The oak - a bruleed creaminess tussling with a carbon black-ness? Mmm. The richness/darkness/tannins explicitly implicate Northern Barossa, possibly Moppa sub-regional genetics. Impressions of dark roasted meats, oxtail, slow-cooked beef cheek, sweet marrow...lend themselves texturally to explain the palate's thickness/viscosity. Flavours of dark chocolate (avec nougat and nuts), soy, charcoal and fusel oils fill all palate gaps. And more.
