Seamless luxury from stem to stern this `baby Grange' is impressive juice.

Seamless luxury from stem to stern this `baby Grange' is impressive juice. Blackberry menthol and smoke play unusually elegantly on the nose the texture is velvet on the tongue with dark berry coffee licorice and muted black pepper flavors. The superb very long finish combines all the elements with wonderful finesse and a rare grace. Not inexpensive but fairly priced; you could pay twice as much for half the wine almost any day in any fine wine store in the country.

Rich ripe and generous a deep-pile carpet of blackberry cherry anise and white pepper flavors that linger on the polished finish. Appealing already. Best from 2003 through 2010. 4392 cases made.

Deep garnet-brick in color the 1998 RWT Shiraz opens to notes of Old Chesterfield, beef drippings, Bovril, sandalwood and sultanas. Quite elegant and fine on the palate, it is a little woody and finishes long and spicy. ...

Bright medium ruby. Sexy complex nose features dark berries black cherry roasted coffee chicory and smoky spicy oak.

Sexy complex nose features dark berries black cherry roasted coffee chicory and smoky spicy oak. Lush and concentrated with pliant but juicy flavors of cherry and berries; some tar and herbaceous notes emerged with extended aeration. Finishes long and bright with firm fine tannins and substantial oakiness.
