"The best showing ever for this wine from my perspective, this blend of 95% Shiraz and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon is considered a relatively forward, accessible style of Grange. The color is still a dark plum/purple, and the wine shows plenty of sweet cassis, with notes of chocolate and toasty oak. The wine is opulent and luscious, with great intensity, full body, and fabulous extract. The acidity seems relatively low and integrated, and the tannins quite ripe. Drink it over the next 12-18 years."

"Odd volatile, vinegary aromatics, toffeed coffee struggling to make it all seem attractive. The palate cuts the crap and turns in a powerful, curranty, minty performance, the tannins keenly massaged and the finish sound. The good run continues."
