Winemaker's Notes

Nice, even color with purple highlights. Very expressive on the nose with notes of blackberry, raspberry and red currant. Nutmeg with a hint of slate comes through after aeration. The wine is big and delicious on entry. We again detect blackcurrants, blackberries and red currants with spicy notes and cinnamon.

Critical Acclaim

"The outstanding 2009 Pic St. Loup Tour de Pierres is composed of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by abundant aromas of blackberries, cassis, charcoal, graphite and damp earth. Medium to full-bodied with silky tannins and a long finish, this big-time overachiever should drink nicely for 4-5 years. "
