1981 Penfolds Grange Bin 95 Shiraz - 97 pts!
Winemaker John Duval called the 1981 a big tannic Grange. It is just that a very powerful inky purple-colored wine that is still almost primary and unevolved in its surprising youthfulness. This formidably endowed broodingly backward thick full-bodied muscular wine has a boatload of chocolate-infused plum caramel and cassis flavors. With high tannin huge grip and some propensity toward austerity this is a monster Grange that may not totally assimilate the high levels of tannin but there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about its future.
