Winery Region:Barossa Valley
Robert Parker Rating:100
RP 100 points: Deep purple-black in color, the 2008 Grange puts forward a very complex nose packed with aromas of mulberries, layers of baking spices, cloves & cinnamon with nuances of minced meat, anise, potpourri & whiffs of dried mint & chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, taut & very spicy in the mouth, it shows touches of sandalwood & Chinese five spice complementing the layers of dark fruit flavors. It is framed by firm, grainy tannins & a refreshing acid line before finishing very long with aniseed & lingering blackberry preserves notes. This is clearly a wonderfully opulent & a magic vintage for this label. Drink it from 2018 to 2035+.
