Color was still a good garnet core, mildly opaque. Great nose, still youthful with dark fruits, leather, cocoa and oak. Palate was classic, unmistakable Grange. Dark and blue fruits, cola, blueberry, leather. Evolved nicely in the glass over 30 minutes, picked up secondary and tertiary characteristics of burnt sugar, honey.
A gorgeous, well-aged Grange. In a great spot now and should continue to drink well for some time. Well aged Aussie fruit that adds elegance to the power and uniqueness of this wine. Would have benefited from a longer decant than we allowed
Massive nose despite it´s age. Showing a great balance of dark ripe fruits, and the elegance that time brings. Oak, leather, dried red berries. Taste is full bodied, balanced with lots of dark fruits, tar, tea, leather. A big, complex, long wine, that is simply gorgeous!
Really lovely. Tried in a flight with 1985. Much younger smelling and tasting than the 1985. Some chocolate as well as oak on the nose. Still rich pure dark fruit. More acid. Rounder mouth feel. Delicious.
