Robert Parker Rating:98
RP 98 points: "Last but not least is AustraliaÔÇÖs most famous wine, the 2002 Shiraz ÔÇ£GrangeÔÇØ. The 2002 version was sourced from 77.5% Barossa Valley and 22.5% from McLaren Vale. Included in the blend is 1.5% Cabernet Sauvignon. It spent 17 months in 100% new American oak. Opaque purple, it gives off an ethereal bouquet of violets, saddle leather, blueberry, blackberry, pencil lead, and chocolate. This is followed by a full-bodied wine with tremendous concentration, multiple layers of flavor, ripe tannins, and great balance. Thick and rich, with a 60-second finish, it will slowly blossom over the next 15-20 years and provide pleasure through 2050. It is a legend in the making! ||Penfolds, arguably AustraliaÔÇÖs most famous winery, continues to perform at a high level under the leadership of Head Winemaker, Peter Gago.||Importer: Southcorp Wines USA"
