Why is there more than one price?


» Sometimes the same vintage of a wine is listed at different prices. That's because some vendors are more aggressive and want a quick sale. We recommend buying the bottle with the best price, it's the same as the other bottles unless there's a condition note indicating otherwise. »Other times there's a reason for different prices for the same wine and vintage. For example, bottles with defects such as a torn label or low ullage level generally sell for a discount vs. wine with no defects.

98.5 Points Robert Parker

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. It should continue to evolve over the next three decades.

97 Points James Halliday

Deep purple-red, it oozes blackberry, blackcurrant and licorice from every pore, the palate a sumptuously smooth velvet cushion of small black fruits. It will outlive anyone who can afford to buy it. Drink to 2040.

96+ Points Robert Parker

Very deep garnet in color, the 1998 Penfolds Grange has shut itself away into a closed stage at this time, offering a subdued core of blackberry preserves and blackcurrant cordial with nuances of smoked bacon, black olives, sandalwood and sweaty leather. The full bodied, taut, muscular palate is firmly structured with chewy tannins and enlivening acidity, finishing long and savory. Consider drinking it 2016 to 2030+.

Obviously a class act with an epic finish and fine structure. Unfortunately this seems to be in a dead phase. Please don't drink before 2015.
