92 points "Colllectibles 9/30/2002 Not huge, more of a human-scale Grange, with beautiful plum and blueberry fruit that shines right through the long, crisp, fine-grained finish. A lovely wine, though it doesn't quite show the grandeur of great Grange vintages. Drink now through 2010. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 10,000 cases made. (HS) " Best -2010
