A blend of 65% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah.
"The 2007 Cotes du Rhone Cuvee Romaine, a custom cuvee for importer EricSolomon made from 60 to 90-year old vines, is a joint project of Solomon and the Bernard family that owns the wonderful Gigondas restaurant, Les Florets, and the brilliantoenologist, Philippe Cambie. A sensational blend of 65% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre, and10% Syrah, it boasts a dense purple color along with a gorgeous nose of creosote, kirsch, blackberries, licorice, and hints of smoked herbs and roasted meats. The wine possesses fabulous ripeness, fresh acidity, full body, and layers of both flavor and depth. It is a remarkable effort, but readers who purchase it should be sure it has the Eric Solomon strip label as the same wine, bottled much later, is sold in other markets." 92 Points,
