Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 85% Grenache, plus Mourvedre and Syrah

Critical Acclaim

"More rich and layered, with fantastic notes of blackberry liqueur, strawberry, garrigue and lavender, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes (85% tank-aged Grenache and the balance Syrah and Mourvedre, fermented with some stem inclusion) is full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and has pure, polished tannin framing the finish nicely. It’s a gorgeous, even elegant, 2011 that will drink well for 12-15 years. Drink now-2027."
94 Points

"Deep ruby. Expressive aromas of red berry preserves, Asian spices, mocha and minerals, with a sexy floral quality; reminds me of a ripe New World pinot noir. Fleshy and smooth, with excellent clarity and spicy lift to its raspberry and cherry flavors. Repeats the floral note on the long, sweet, seamless finish. This will provide plenty of immediate appeal when it is finally released. 90-92 points "
92 Points

"A fresh, open, accessible style, offering silky-textured raspberry, black cherry and plum fruit, lined with hints of cinnamon, black tea and shiso leaf. The graceful finish lets the raspberry note echo. "
