By Bob Campell in 2004 (BC96)
Big and hugely dense wine with attractive spice, licorice, tar, fruit cake etc etc. A big and powerful wine that promises much. Long.
By James Holiday in 2003 (JH95)
Concentrated blackberry and licorice fruit, the oak perfectly integrated. A powerful, masculine style, a touch more austere than the ’98.
By Wine Spectator in 2004 (WS94)
Not quite as broad and generous as riper vintages, but tremendously classy, offering smoky, earthy blackberry, plum and currant fruit that compete effectively against cedary oak on the long finish. The flavors gain with each sip, fanning out impressively. It’s tight now, but it could age beautifully. *Collectibles*
By Wine Enthusiast in 2004 (WE93)
An excellent wine as it always is, but this vintage of Grange is one that isn’t just built for aging, it requires it. Its flavors and aromas require a good 20 minutes in the glass to show themselves, but with time, pretty eucalyptus/mint and anise aromas come through. In the mouth, this vintage feels more feminine than other recent vintages. It’s very tightly wound, with tea, biscuit and plum notes peeking through; its tannins are powdery and pretty, and its finish long and juicy. *Cellar Selection*
By Robert Parker in 2004 (RP92)
Dense ruby/purple to the edge, with a bouquet of blackberries, mulberries, and floral-like aromas, and medium to full body, the 1999 has an acid punch, but also tremendous layers of fruit and extract. Not massive, but elegant and nicely layered
