Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This medium bodied blend consisting of 65% Grenache, 5% Carignan and 30% Syrah has nicely aromatic, integrated notes of cherry, black currant, pine and green pepper. It is tannic (decant for 1 hour) with a medium to long, bretty finish. This wine can be aged for 5 to 10 more years. My impression: NICE, 89 pts. Tasted AGAIN in Aug/10 during French wine tasting and it was very well liked by other tasters.

One observation I would like to make is that even though this wine was released in February, there are still plenty of bottles left, which makes me conclude that it is not ALL THAT (as some critics say). However, on the other side, there are many reviews scoring above 90. So perhaps this wine is worthy of a try.
