89% Shiraz, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon. Kalimna Vineyard (Barossa Valley), Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra blend.Very dark crimson. Tarry and much more suppressed on the nose than, say, the 1991 even though it is three years younger. Still very taut and chewily textured. Wait!

This is the first vintage where Grange went to a bottle with laser-etched identification numbers to preclude the possibility of fraudulent bottles. The wine, a blend of 89% Shiraz and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, shows some toasty oak mixed with notes of root vegetables, damp earth, blackberry liqueur, prune, and licorice. The wine is dense, full-bodied, not terribly complex in the mouth, but layered and rich. I would not be surprised to see the rating on this wine improve as this youthful Grange continues to evolve.

A magnificent edifice of a wine, elegant and refined in structure but dripping with flavor--a virtual cascade of plum, black cherry, blackberry, anise, pepper and exotic spices that lingers on the finish; this just doesn't quit. 780 cases imported.

Allowed to decant for a little over an hour. Very light nose. Rich blackberry on the palate. Perfect balance between the fruit and the long dusty smoke on the finish. A very nice wine.
