|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:|
In a year or two, this wine could easily reach classic quality if and when all of the components come together. Right now, however, it is a fascinating, tactile journey through complex aromas and flavours of black briars, crème de cassis, fresh herb, black licorice, camphor, white pepper, hung game, iron and chalky minerals. The Grenache is virtually unblemished by wood, while the Syrah and Mourvèdre spend some time in smaller cooperage (some new) - making this wine fresher, livelier, more mouth-filling. Producers from the South of France should take note on this type of handling of Grenache. 94(+) Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
An MSG blend with the Grenache adding smoothness. Dark garnet red showing dark fruit, cedar, dried herb aromas. The delicious palate gives more ripe fruit/plums, herbs, vanilla, oak with excellent structure, noted tannins present. Could age well for up to 10 yrs. Pair with game, red meat, cheeses.
