Powerful, heady, deep and full of harmony. The tannins are very qualitative, they are silky and delicate, giving an impression of volume and length in the mouth. The intensity of the colors is of an excellent level and can be compared to this of the previous years.
"Opaque ruby. Exotic aroma of raspberry preserves, cherry pie, Asian spices and garrigue expands with air and picks up a deeper cherry quality. Spicy, mineral-driven red and dark berry flavors are impressively lithe and precise, with silky tannins lending support. This very fresh wine finishes with excellent clarity and spicy persistence. "
International Wine Cellar
"Generous oak scents introduce this wine, but given time in the glass, the fruit comes up chewy, spicy and cherry-hued, indicative of the high percentage of grenache in the blend. Licorice and stone notes add detail. For a lamb stew."
Wine & Spirits
"This has a core of dark plum and fig fruit, but it's pushed by a slightly high-toned black cherry and floral note, with hints of anise and black licorice checking in on the finish. Tangy for the vintage. Drink now through 2019."
