"Perhaps his best achievement among the inexpensive wines is his 2006 Cotes du Rhone Les Deux Albions. This is a blend of 50% Syrah, 20% Grenache, and the rest Mourvedre and Carignan. Already in bottle, the wine exhibits a deep ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of peppery blackberry and cassis, with a hint of exotic flowers and tropical fruits.
Remarkably, he blends in 10% of the white grape Clairette to give an almost Guigal Cote Rotie La Mouline-like floral complexity to the black fruit character. This is a fat, fleshy, delicious wine meant for drinking in its first 3-4 years of life."

Heavy with tannin and flat on the tounge, I expected this to have a fruitier flavor after reading the professional ratings.
