50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Carignan from 40 year old vines.
Deep blueberry and forest aromas precede the very long flavors of black cherry, bramble and black pepper. Muscular and packed, finishes with drying tannins.
"A brilliant red wine which requires another 6-12 months of bottle age. A combination of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest Cinsault, Mourvèdre, and Carignan, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue as well as a big, bold aromatic display of fresh mushrooms, tree bark, blueberries and black cherries. Deep textured, full-bodied, powerful, and muscular with some tannin to shed, this offering should be forgotten for a year or so, and consumed over the following decade.
The Wine Advocate
Concentrated, young and lush with supple tannins and a great length. The fruit leans toward the brambly side without being over-concentrated or alcoholic. Nice balance of oak. Well-made for drinking young, but definitely a wine that can be cellared for years.
