Supple ripe and generous with its blueberry plum and mocha flavors riding easily over finely wrought tannins and extending into the long expressive finish. Rich complex and evocative this has plenty of flavor packed into a beautifully balanced package. Drink now through 2020. 680 cases imported. -HS

Seductively perfumed nose offers cassis blueberry cherry-cola violet and dried fig scents with a suave undercurrent of smoky minerals. Deep finely etched cherry and dark berry flavors are complicated by mocha and candied licorice becoming riper with air. Cured meat and black cardamom notes arrive with air adding further interest. Full fleshy and sweet on the impressively long finish which is nicely braced by dusty tannins. This is more energetic than most wines from this vintage.

It was aged for 15 months in 100% new American oak. Opaque purple-colored it offers up aromas of cedar cigar box leather Asian spices and blueberry. On the palate it is layered but a bit short on depth and grip with only moderate length. It will evolve for 5-7 years and drink well from 2014 to 2030. This is a good but not great vintage of Grange making it vastly overpriced.
