Winemaker's Notes

90 Points

"The portfolio begins with the 2006 Grenache (65%) – Shiraz (35%) "Trumps" which spent 18 months in previously used French oak. Crimson-colored, it exhibits an enticing bouquet of spice box, pepper, black cherry, and blueberry. Full-bodied and supple-textured, it is only moderately concentrated but has excellent flavors in its easy-going, seamless personality. Drink this excellent value over the next 8 years." —Jay Miller
Wine Advocate

90 Points

Sweet, sappy red and dark berry preserve flavors offer very good, palate-coating intensity, with late-arriving spice. I don't find any tannins here and would drink this on the young side for its fruit." Stephen Tanzer's
