Blend: 75% Grenache, 25% Syrah.
Clearly a wine from a warm place, with its amber hues and richness of texture. The nose is reminiscent of morello cherries, flowers and licorice. On the palate it shows an unctuous texture and is rich and concentrated.
This is a fine bottle from a great terroir. It will go perfectly with beef, lamb and dishes containing black truffles.
"From a 27-acre vineyard of 50-year-old grenache and syrah vines, this is tight and elegant, its cherry-raspberry flavors kept taut with bright acidity and mouthwatering herbal notes. It's delicious now with steak frites and should age well for another five to seven years."
Wine & Spirits
"Very racy, with lots of red and black currant fruit backed by a great graphite spine. Offers nice hints of licorice, spice and iron on the finish. Drink now through 2012."
