A blend of 94% Shiraz and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, this was considered to be 'an uncharacteristically soft, fruity Grange.' Everyone at the tasting agreed with those comments. This wine shows a syrupy creme de cassis, earthy note, some pepper, and caramel. It is somewhat soft and accessible for such a relatively young Grange, but there is plenty of structure and tannin in the finish. It is certainly perfumed and more evolved than some of its siblings that are actually older, chronologically speaking. This wine has sweet, full-bodied, plum, cherry, and cassis flavors, with some distinct truffle and asphalt notes. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2016. (RP)
A rich wine that never forgets to be elegant, this is plush, focused and generous with its berry, plum and anise flavors that remain sweet and supple through the long finish. (HS)
Lovely rotting-strawberry fruit. Pretty firm tannins. Savoury liquorice character. Olive tapenade. Blackcurrant juice. Very good, but not the most convincing Grange ever. 17/20 points (RH)
