Had another ‘16, couldn’t resist. Referred to as the “Baby Grange,” blend of 51% Cab Sauv & 49% Shiraz, aged for 12 months in American oak, partly in previous-vintage Grange casks. Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe black fruits, sweet and complex spice. On the palate juicy blackberry flavors with notes of cacao and toasty spices. Well balanced with acidity, full ripe tannins, long ending with smoky spice, fruit well integrated with oak, drink over next 10 years+, will only get better.

Very nice cab-Shiraz blend. Aroma of plum and spice. Taste of dark red plums with a very slight sweet spice notes. Medium body and smooth.

V16. Very good. Olive, white pepper and cedar nose. Rich black currant and black berry fruit. Tight, chalky, leather finish.

Deep bruised purple, opaque, viscous wine. Black licorice, cherry, black berries... A bitter mid palate (a bit off putting -- the syrah I guess?), with medium tannins. Has a bit of spice (clove). Very enjoyable.

Lots of cherries and balck fruits. Candied apples sweetness. Big body. Smooth. Young but good. Can easily go 20 more years ageing.
