Crimson red in colour with purple hues. The intense nose has violet floral aromas, with rich Satsuma plums, raspberries and raisins. These flavours continue onto the palate, which also offers some well-integrated smoky oak and spice characters that continue well through the long finish. The supple tannins add weight to the palate and carry the fruit and acid structure of this elegant example of truly old vine Grenache
International Wine Cellar"Bright red. Spicy strawberry and raspberry aromas are pure and straightforward. Deeper cherry and black raspberry flavors are enlivened by juicy acidity, with an exotic floral pastille note arriving on the long, sappy, firm finish. Lovely right now, but has the concentration to last for at least another few years. These vines are reportedly nearly a century old."
Wine Spectator"Polished, silky and graceful, with smoky cherry and red plum flavors cascading along a sleek frame. A charming wine that has some extra oomph on the finish. Drink now through 2013. 1,000 cases made. –HS"
The Wine AdvocatePurple-colored with a fragrant bouquet of kirsch, black raspberry, and clove. Ripe and sweet on the palate with very good flavors, it is slightly compact in the finish. Drink this tasty Grenache over the next 6-8 years.
