Description

    Penfold's Grange 1998
    2owc
    Bottle (12)
    "Pure hedonism on the nose. Very sweet - like malted milk - at first and then finishes pretty dry and tannic still. I hope the aromatic development isn't ahead of the resolution of tannins?" (18pts JR, June 2009)

    "A wine that flirts with perfection, and should rival the 1986 as one of the legendary Granges produced, the 1998 has one of the highest alcohol contents (nearly 15%) as well as one of the highest percentages of Shiraz in the blend (97%). Its stunning purple color is accompanied by exceptionally sweet aromas of blackberry liqueur intermixed with barbecue spices, an endearing, smoky earthiness, pepper, roasted meats, and coffee. Huge, massive, unctuously textured, and extraordinarily youthful, this impressive wine is a candidate for perfection." (98+ pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #183, June 2009)
