Community Tasting Notes 88

  • Alex G. Likes this wine:

    December 28, 2019 - Flamboyant next to the '86, very ripe and lush fruit. Tannins are mostly resolved, and for me this tied with the '98 for second place of six vintages served.

    November 26, 2019 - Perfect balance between elegance and power. Chocolate, cedarwood, incense, leather, and dark fruit. I thought it was a vega sicilia reserva especiale in blind. Lovely acidity with bright fruit. 93-94

    October 13, 2019 - Expressive nose of dark raspberry spice. Quite rich and intense with delicious flavors of dark raspberries with strong notes of minerals and eucalyptus. Very complex finish with firm tannins. This is a structured vintage of Grange but there is plenty of fruit to balance it and it needs 5 more years, at least. 94+

    September 28, 2019 - Compelling. First Grange, thanks to neighbor. Pnp, drank over 90 mins. Shockingly young, bright at first, then waves of complexity emerged, wood, soil, other flavors. I would compare to a fine northern Rhone, but it was more rustic to my mind. Great discovery.

    September 7, 2019 - Kleur: Donkerrood met een subtiele oranje verkleuring aan de rand. Aroma / bouquet: Wow. Een wijn van 24 jaar oud en nog steeds een explosie van aroma. Confiture van zwarte bessen, chique hout en een royale dosis menthol. Smaak / Afdronk: In de mond maakt deze 24 jaar oude krachtpatser ook een bijzondere indruk. Expressief met een buitengewone balans. Een - zeker voor een belegen Shiraz - prettige zuurgraad, veel prachtig gerijpte tannines. Met 13,5% alcohol niet overdreven zoetig. Indrukwekkend lange afdronk. In de finale toont deze wijn zich helaas als 'te oud' in de vorm van een begin van hoekige zuren. Algemeen / potentieel: Indrukwekkend bouquet, indrukwekkende smaak maar 1 tot 2 jaar te laat geopend. 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 12 + Smaak / Afdronk: 17 + Algemeen / potentieel: 8 = 92/100

    Google Translate:

    Color: Dark red with a subtle orange discoloration on the edge. Aroma / bouquet: Wow. A wine of 24 years old and still an explosion of aroma. Black currant jam, chic wood and a generous dose of menthol. Taste / Aftertaste: In the mouth, this 24-year-old powerhouse also makes a special impression. Expressive with an extraordinary balance. A - certainly for a mature Shiraz - pleasant acidity, lots of beautifully aged tannins. Not overly sweet with 13.5% alcohol. Impressively long finish. In the final, this wine unfortunately appears to be 'too old' in the form of an onset of angular acids. General / potential: Impressive bouquet, impressive taste but opened 1 to 2 years late. 50 + Color: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 12 + Taste / Finish: 17 + General / potential: 8 = 92/100
