#39 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008
Wine Spectator "Highly Recommended"
A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah.
The color is a deep ruby with a velvety aspect.
The nose is reminiscent of red fruit jams, with a mineral and earthy touch. A generous and powerful wine that is robust and distinguished, with its firm tannins well integrated.
"Dark and smoky, with alluring cocoa powder, mesquite and bacon fat notes leading the way for rich black currant, melted licorice and espresso. The long, smoldering finish shows a nice wild side. Impressive now, but better with some cellaring." 93 Points
