93 Points Robert Parker

This fabulous wine is still young and vigorous, with a dark plum/ruby color and a very sweet nose of kirsch liqueur intermixed with almost overripe peach and cherry notes. Very full-bodied, fleshy, with succulent texture yet superb underlying structure and decent acidity, this is a blockbuster Old Vine Grenache to drink over the next 12-15+ years.

93 Points Robert Parker

The 1998 Grenache Clarendon Vineyard reveals such textbook Chateauneuf du Pape characteristics as kirsch liqueur, spicy pepper, a touch of peach-like fruit from its overripeness, and the dried herb, earthy concoction the French call garrigue. Full-bodied and ripe, with a fleshy, high alcohol personality, this voluptuous Chateauneuf du Pape look-alike should drink well for 8-10 years.

91 Points James Halliday

Light to medium red-purple; the bouquet offers authentic, varietal juicy, jammy berry fruit; the palate is quite rich, complex and spicy, although once again the tannins on the finish seem to be contained in a separate add-on compartment. Drink to 2008.
