    December 26, 2019 - Don't believe them... This wine was far from tired... Definitely not going to get better, but perfect for wife's 58th birthday... she couldn't get enough.... More blueberry flavors than the usual raspberry for older Granges....

    December 14, 2019 - This wine is still quite memorable... but is giving way to a touch of a port like character. Drink it up

    July 2, 2019 - Very dark. The nose has mint, dark chocolate, coffee and black fruit. Concentrated, medium body, chocolate and black fruit palate. Tannin is present throughout and the acid is right. Long finish. This is maturing and is in no way feeble.... has been cellared well.

    April 30, 2019 - Penfolds Grange dinner with Stephanie Dutton (The Musket Room in NYC): Of course the eucalyptus. This has a nice beginning with some fruit that jumps out of the glass. A bit more of a drying tannin than some of the others. Some herbal and spice notes. It's good. Got overshadowed a bit by the '86 which was just brilliant.

    January 20, 2019 - fully matured and perhaps even going down, but in perfect balance now and you can sip all night and want more of this one. drank with 88 which outshone this vintage by a wide margin.
