» 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.

94.5 Points Robert Parker

The least impressive, but still a very great wine, is the dark garnet-hued 1980. Still a young wine at age 29, it exhibits massive earthy, meaty, bacon fat notes intermixed with notions of scorched earth, blackberries, currants, pepper, and spice. Full and rich with slightly rustic tannins, it has a good 20 years of life ahead of it.

A fabulous Grange, this was a light harvest, and the blend ended up being 96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine still seems very youthful, made in a very voluptuous, blockbuster Grange style. The wine has a dense ruby/purple color with no amber. A nose of melted asphalt, pepper, creme de cassis, and blackberries changes little in the glass, but with airing, some sweeter plum, prune, and chocolate emerge in a very full-bodied, powerful, seamlessly constructed wine with perfect levels of glycerin and extract. It is just now reaching its plateau of drinkability. Anticipated maturity: now-2016 # E2002 Feb 2002.
