Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006!
"Tight on the nose, but with a great beam of both red and black fruits, as well as hoisin sauce, olive, cocoa, tar and raspberry ganache. Long, lush finish pumps out darker and darker fruit. Has the racy profile of the vintage, but its range sets it apart. 70 percent Grenache, with Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Best from 2007 through 2026."
