Reviews and Ratings
|Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre that is organically farmed and aged for 12 months in concrete tanks. Full bodied and rich - quite a complex wine with very smooth tannins. A seductive nose with black plums, red currants and dried fruit, while on the palate there are dried dates and red/black fruits combined with wood and acid on the finish. Has a lingering finish, with earthy notes and spice. Very good value!
|Trent Mayers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This has the holy trinity of grapes from South West France. A great value with tremendous sweet spice, black & red cherry, strawberry jam, and quite full bodied. It’s a wine that is enjoyable now and versatile with food. I’m thinking flavourful pizza or lamb chops with pair nicely. 4 stars out of 5.
|Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This GSM blend has red berries and raspberry on the slightly floral, powdery nose. A fairly bold palate defined by field berries and textured with sandy tannins and a long finish. Go local and pair with cassoulet. Very good value. Tasted Nov 15, 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
