Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of raspberry, cherry, violets, woodsmoke, and black pepper. Full bodied on the palate, with some soft tannins, medium+ acidity, and lots of ripe berry notes, with more smoke and spice on the finish. Enjoy this with a prime rib roast.
Jay Denney rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Tasty Rhone Red Blend! Rich with red berries, hints of violet and pepper. Medium - full body, smooth finish,
Bastide Miraflors 2017 is a juicy Grenache and Syrah red wine blend from the Côtes Du Roussillon wine region made from Old Vines Grenache. Great value under $20 and lip-smacking with tart cherry, black raspberry, savoury herb, dark chocolate, spicy and flinty flavours on the palate. Excellent now Produced by Domaine Lafage. - Community Wine Reviews
