"A blockbuster in addition to realistically priced effort is the 2002 Mourvedre/Grenache/Shiraz (60%, 25%, and 15% respectively).

It possesses great depth as well as ripeness, low acidity, and a plump, fleshy finish. Sadly, there are only 400 six-packs for the United States. It should drink well for 10-12 years."-Wine Advocate
