Penfold 407

Had this over dinner at Kamboat courtesy of James.

Opened up with a typical Aussie jammy black fruit nose, intermingled with currant. Surprisingly there is an absent of annoying alcohol heat so typical of South Aussie wines in this case. After about 45minutes of breathing, some graphite emerged. Palate was medium huge, with a pretty jammy mid.

Verdict: It is much better than I thought it would be. Worth a try and go with heavy dishes.
