Rewards of Patiences - sixth edition - the 1980 Penfolds Grange was described as deep brick red in colour.  Fresh aniseed/meaty/earthy/cedar aromas with a hint of menthol.  The palateis elegantly proportioned with rich generous dark berry/meaty/earthy/cedar/mint flavours and slinky leafy tannins.  It finishes sinewy and dry but long and flavourful.  A very well balanced wine which may further improve.  The 1980 Penfolds Grange is made from a blend of shiraz (96%) and cabernet sauvignon (4%), its fruit was sourced from the Barossa Valley (including Penfolds Kalimna Vineyard), Clare Valley, Magill Estate, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra Wine Region.  It was a drought affected summer which was warm and hot, followed by a warm dry vintage.   The 1980 Penfolds Grange was the first vintage adopting consistent use of signature red Penfolds capsules.
