Why is there more than one price?
RP 93 points: This dark purple-colored wine exhibits notes of sweet plum, blackberry, & cassis intermixed with some licorice, chocolate, & espresso. It is a blend of 94% Shiraz & 6% Cabernet Sauvignon that tips the scales at 14+% alcohol. The wine is layered, unctuously textured, full-bodied with tremendous intensity, moderately high tannin, & a 40-second finish. The wine needs a good 4-5 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025. This Grange should ultimately merit a higher score when it is closer to its plateau of drinkability.
