92 points "Supple, sumptuous and round, a lithe mouthful of spicy cherry and plum flavors that remain succulent right through the long, fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2012. 120 cases made. (HS)" Best 2004-2012

97 points "A total whore of a wine (I mean that in a good sense) is the 2002 Grenache Old Vine. Made from 69-year-old vines planted in sandy soils, aged in a combination of new and old French and American wood, and cropped at 1.5 tons of fruit per acre, the vintage’s cool drought conditions have resulted in a magnificent wine that represents the nectar of Grenache. Dense ruby/purple-colored with spectacular concentration in addition to sweet blackberry, kirsch, raspberry, pepper, and flower characteristics, this magnificently concentrated, full-bodied 2002 takes Barossa Grenache to new heights."
