A big mouthful of wine. Lavishly oaked with plenty of structure. Fruit is showing some maturity. Not sure if this will ever knit. I would give it a splash decant and fire away. Yummy!

Really showing well. It needed 4 hours open to start being showy but once it started to get going it really took off.

I am baffled by this wine. Really, what a magnificent, brilliant, superlative wine. I cannot recall a single wine that gave me such an intensity, a clap in my face like this Grange. Here, Australia shows that you can be super ripe yet succulent and balanced. A true masterpiece. I am in love.

Syrah at its peak! Peppery at first, it builds really well in the glass. The nose is precise and opulent. Roasted figs and spices are present as well. This definitely needs more time. I love the elegance in Grange, I think this is what make it special compared to other great Shiraz of Australia. Not the terroir driven style of Hill of Grace but really well crafted indeed. Give it 10 years to enjoy with softer tannins

Still way too young. Thin mints and Girl Scout cookies.
