Natalie's Score: 90/100

Full-bodied with big black fruit, smoke and tar on the nose and palate. Lots of layers and superb balance. Dry and satisfying. Terrific dinner party wine with hearty meat dishes.

Food pairings: filet mignon, grilled pork chops.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

A delightful example from the Southern Rhone with a bouquet of fig, cracked black pepper and cured meat. Mouth filling flavours of spiced red fruit and leather follow. Delicious with pan-roasted venison. Enjoy through 2019. Tasted Oct 2014.
Julia Kelada rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This wine is dark red tinged with red brick colour.

On the nose there is a predominance of black berry jam. There are mild animal notes. There was a beautiful herb garden tone.

On the palate this is quite a meaty wine. the fruits that present are plums and figs and tiny black berries.Great herbs of Rosemary and lavender. A leather and bitter dark chocolate tone step forward and are followed by a black pepper spice. Fantastic tannins and a full dry mouthed finish.
Great with beef tar tar, Bison or other pungently flavoured meats.
Doug Mcmillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a nicely balanced wine with with lots of earthiness, smoke, and and black cherry aromas. The taste continues with black and tart cherries and there's a long silky finish with some very soft tannins. Very nice for an herbed port roast.
Valérie Dufour Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Nice aromas of black pepper and blackberries.
Elegant, balanced and long enough. A little trip to the south of France for less than 20$.
Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Blackberry jam, lavender, savoury herbs on the nose
Medium-full bodied with with soft tannins, more blackberry, plums, leather and herby spice on huge palate with a slightly peppery finish.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
