Description:

*Penfolds Grange Hermitage 1982
South Australia u. bottom neck; label stained
"One of my favorite vintages of Grange to actually drink at present is the 1982, a vintage that Max Schubert called, in his low-key manner, "very good." A blend of 94% Shiraz and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a wine with an open-knit, seductive style. Dense ruby/purple with sweet black raspberry, jammy plum, and currant flavors, the wine tastes like dry vintage port, but also seems to be approaching full maturity. The wine seems low in acidity, sweet in tannin wiith the firmness, ripeness, richness, and powers of seduction. The wine is gorgeously opulent and impossible to resist. Anticipated maturity: now-2016." R. Parker, 95 pts. 02/02 1 bottle
Estimate $150-200
