From a great Grange vintage so expectations were high. Elegant, balanced wine with liquorice, oak, berry and a suggestion of herbals. Good cedar, cigar box and leather notes. A bit of a surprise. Distinctive and attractive wine, but not especially Grange-like.

94 Points Robert Parker

The 1990 performed well in the tasting, but, along with the 1980, was the least impressive of these Granges. The 1990 is loosely knit, seems to border on overripeness with its jammy character, and has a slightly more aggressive style of tannin ... or are the acids more pronounced? It is certainly outstanding, displaying full body along with a classic smoky, blackberry, cassis, pepper, and forest floor-scented bouquet. Of all these wines, it appears to be the most evolved.

97 Points James Halliday

Destined to be one of the greatest Granges. A beautifully weighted and concentrated bouquet, with seamless fruit and oak; masses of dark cherries and plum. In the mouth a superb wine; while the fruit is opulent, it is not excessively so; indeed there is a touch of near austerity to the fine tannins to give the wine both character and balance. The iron fist in a velvet glove. Drink to 2020.
