“Similar in weight to the 2002 Grange vintage – a complete package, ticking all boxes...  the ‘refinements’ continue.” “Not as ‘Barossa-ish’ as the 2008 vintage – with McLaren Vale and Clare staking their claim on this 2009 wine’s ID.” “ Very drinkable... plan ahead and cellar some in magnum for longer-term rationing.” - Peter Gago, Penfold Chief Winemaker

The 2009 Grange Shiraz is a comprised of 84% Barossa, 8% McLaren, and a little Clare Valley and a little Magill fruit with a small 2% of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. At this youthful stage, this deep garnet-purple colored wine puts forward a vivid expression of blackberry preserve aromas amid underlying cassis, black cherry, spice box, char-grilled meat and chocolate box notes. Surprisingly medium to full-bodied (it smells much fuller!) with taut flavors that are very closed in the mouth, it has firm, chewy tannins to structure through the long and earthy finish. 406 cases imported to the US. Drink it 2018 to 2035+.
The Wine Advocate - 97

You can count Grange as one of the world's top 10 wines nearly every year. The 2009 is super good; devilish in its own ways, this sleek powerhouse has only one sin- it is housed between to incredible vintages! Both the 2008 and 2010 are out-of-this-world. Yet, this baby is soooh good! Red and black fruit, with suggestion of earth and barrel, this wine was so well made. Yes, this is a Wow! wine that battles the finest from Bordeaux, Piedmont, Tuscany, Burgundy, the Napa Valley and other such famous places. (Best Served 2017-2035) - Wilfred Wong of - 96
