94 points Wine & Spirits: "[$78 list] There’s black-currant clarity to this clean and luscious cabernet, a blend of Duckhorn’s estate-grown fruit with purchased grapes. The dark fruit is layered with brighter black-raspberry flavor and rich chocolate tones from its time in French oak barrels (50 percent new). Relatively light in weight but saturated in flavor, the wine sustains a lovely mineral tension as it opens with air. (Oct 2019)"

93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of raspberries and red currants with depth and finesse. It has impressive power and it doesn't back away from firmness in the tannin department. Very fresh still. Drink or hold. (8/14/18)"

92 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "The current release of Yalumba's flagship Grenache is the 2013 The Tri-Centenary Grenache, from 820 vines that were planted in 1889. Aged in older hogsheads for 18 months, there's no noticeable oak on the nose, just slightly reticent notes of lavender, red berries, cola and wintergreen. It's medium to full-bodied and quite firm, and it could probably benefit from another couple of years in the bottle. Drink: 2020-2028. (Aug 2018)"

Producer notes: "A true individual showcasing the essence of Grenache. Hand picked from just 820 gnarly old Bush Vines planted in 1889, these wines have been in the ground for over 125 years. Their home is two acres of estate owned sandy soil over yellow-brown clay in the heart of the Barossa Valley. Year after year these veteran vines give up small quantities of exceptional grapes."
