About

90

"Pale red. Red berry and cherry aromas are strongly accented by smoky herbs, anise and lavender. Round and juicy, offering intense bitter cherry and raspberry flavors and a late note of peppery spices. In a rich, classic Tavel style but quite lively, finishing with impressive power and lingering spiciness."

90 Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Possessing a deep raspberry color, the superb 2012 Tavel is loaded with ripe black cherries, lavender and melon like aromas and flavors that give way to a substantial, rich, yet pure and classy palate. A big rose, it stays beautifully fresh and lively. Enjoy it over the coming year or two. Drink now-2013"
