Absolutely one of my TOP TEN WINE EXPERIENCES OF 2014! Pales in to the incredible 2008 which I enjoyed in 2013. Deep ruby, black color; super-fine and ultra-rich, yet deftly elegant aroma of bold black fruits, incredibly classic and youthful, one of the most exciting young wine aromas I have experienced; medium bodied, rich and substantive on the palate, seamless with sweet tannins; black fruit, a light twist of American oak; long finsh, lusty aftertaste. This is a pretty amazing wine, very close to the incredible 2008. (Best Served: 2020-2045)

Tasted side by side with RWT. It was good, but not great. Most of us preferred RWT over Grange. Lots of tannins, a little coarse, not as soft as RWT. Noticeable American oak.

Some cry infanticide, I believe in witnessing the evolution. What do you think @DLynn Proctor ?

This was actually really good. Is it worth the hefty price tag though? I don't know, but then again, what wine really is? This is definitely one of those once in a life time type of wines to drink, and I'm grateful to have had the pleasure of trying this beast.

Just a baby but already gorgeous. Violets, dark fruit vanilla and a touch of coconut. Amazing body and mouthfeel. Should be incredible in 10+ years

Tasted twice over the course of the evening 2hrs double decant: complex nose, U.S. Oak dominate slightly disjointed. 90mins later: oak integrated, very complex, length long. Equal to '08?
