    Penfolds Bin 49 Grange Hermitage 1960
    South Australia
    Bottled 10/11/1961. Foil capsule over metal capsules.. Embossed shoulder 'Penfolds'. Very badly bin-soiled labels, fragile, damaged. Levels base of neck.
    Tasting note: A blend of 92% Shiraz and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine showed a dark garnet colour with moderate amber at the edge. Notes of prune, mint, coffee, caramel, molasses, and some sweet cherry and berry fruit are present in this full-bodied, intact, succulent Grange that is still fresh, with no traces of oxidation or decay. The wine is round and complex as well as delicious, with full body. Robert Parker, eRobertParker.com Feb 2002
