    January 21, 2019 - the rating is given with the condition of more cellaring, for me at least. Has power but lacked finesse of the 88.

    January 20, 2019 - Bottle breathed for 5 hours before serving. Violets, pepper, herbs and spice flowing throughout the nose and palate. Very balanced with lots of underlying spice. Ethereal and light on its feet.

    December 11, 2018 - Acker BYO 2018 (Tribeca Grille): So I am a big believer that Grange needs time and this was a good example of that. At this point it's a bit disjointed. The oak is still there. The alcohol is still there. There's some fruit and menthol and eucalyptus, but it's covered a by those first two parts. Give it time.

    October 27, 2018 - This wine is sick. From the nose to the palette. Next morning- sick. Next evening- sick. Wow! The only thing not getting 98-99 is that I don’t love the new world style. If it had some poopie- id given it 99-100.

    October 5, 2018 - Wow is this powerful. Intoxicating notes of cassis and blackberry and dollops of vanilla but put together professionally. This is crying out for a steak. So seducing but big. Not for the subtle. Long blackberry finish. Unique
