Penfolds Grange 2002 - Mint Condition Tissue Wrapped!

The Wine Advocate (Robert Parker) – Rated 98 points
2002 Penfolds Grange – “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 Australia’s most famous winery, continues to perform at a high level under the leadership of Head Winemaker, Peter Gago.”

The Australian Wine Companion 2008 (James Halliday) – Rated 97 Points
“As hoped and expected; beautiful colour; a wonderful bouquet, with black fruits or various kinds the engine, oak in tow. Impeccable texture and balance in the mouth; again, a wonderful array of seamless blackberry, licorice and high-quality oak; destined to become recognised as one of the great Granges.” Cork (14.5%ABV) – Drink Now To 2050
