Penfolds Grange 2005

I tasted this wine at Langton's Classification V tasting, and for me, out of magnum, it was easily the wine of the night.  An aroma of oak and opulent fruit, was met with a palate that had length, balance and silk.  It stood above an almost incomparable line up of great wines.  All class.

Rating: Outstanding, Abv: 14.5%, Price: around $550, Website:, Tasted: 2010
