Tremendously classy, offering smoky, earthy blackberry, plum and currant fruit that compete effectively against cedary oak on the long finish. The flavors gain with each sip, fanning out impressively.

Inky purple. Seductively perfumed nose offers cassis, blueberry, cherry-cola, violet and dried fig scents, with a suave undercurrent of smoky minerals. Deep, finely etched cherry and dark berry flavors are complicated by mocha and candied licorice, becoming riper with air. Cured meat and black cardamom notes arrive with air, adding further interest. Full, fleshy and sweet on the impressively long finish, which is nicely braced by dusty tannins. This is more energetic than most wines from this vintage.

Smooth and seductive, this delivers a full-throated chorus of currant, plum, blackberry and spice flavors, hinting at coffee and cardamom as the finish floats and sails easily over a bed of polished, refined tannins. A touch of black olive balances nicely against it all. Beautifully structured, expressive and very long. Best from 2012 through 2025.

The Wine of the Year in 1995 (with the rsquo;90 vintage), Australiarsquo;s legendary red once again graces our Top 100 with its current release. Chief winemaker John Duval relies on Penfoldrsquo;s Kalimna vineyard in Barossa Valley for the backbone of the Grange blend.

Virtually undeveloped, a huge, compacted Shiraz that feels like sucking on a stone of tannin, this nearly gives away its identity as Grange in a blind tasting. In a great vintage like rsquo;96, few other wines combine the explosive power and dense compaction Penfolds achieves in this selection of old-vines Shiraz. Tasting it now is more an intellectual pleasure, prying apart the layers of herbs, forest scents, bold fruit and tannin to understand its form, the wine remaining aloof and distant, like a sunrise over the horizon waiting to burst into flames. As tight as they may be, the flavors last for over a minute, the extreme spice warming every pore of the mouth, shedding jasmine and white pepper light across an expanse of dark, impenetrable shiraz. A classic Grange, this will likely come into its own at fifteen to twenty years of age.

The 1999 Grange does not come close to such great Granges as the 1998 1996 1991 and 1990. Dense ruby/purple to the edge with a bouquet of blackberries mulberries and floral-like aromas and medium to full body the 1999 has an acid punch but also tremendous layers of fruit and extract. Not massive but elegant and nicely layered... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
