89 Points Vinous
(70% grenache and 30% syrah): Bright ruby. Heady red berry preserve and floral aromas are complemented by peppery spice and licorice qualities. Plush, expansive raspberry and cherry-cola flavors show a seamless quality and pick up a bitter chocolate nuance with air. Finishes sappy, smoky and long, with slow-building tannins and good spicy cut. – Josh Raynolds
88 Points Wine Spectator
Quite ripe, with crushed plum and blackberry coulis flavors, framed by silky tannins and backed by lingering anise and lavender notes. A graphite hint keeps this rich style honest. Drink now. 200 cases imported.
