About

94

Complex without being try-hard about it. Gorgeous mix of various berried fruits, licorice, grainy tannin, savoury-smoky notes and clovey oak. It's at the upper end of mid-weight but it's mouthfilling. High quality tannin and length. Warm finish but impressive all round.

93 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

Lots of peppery fruit with plum, dried strawberry and spice. Full to medium body, integrated tannins and a beautiful, balanced finish. Hard to find something like this even in Châteauneauf. Wonderful value. Drink now.

91 Wine Spectator

Lithe and appealing, with tea leaf and orange peel accents around a sleek core of red berry flavors. The finish lingers effortlessly against refined tannins. Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvèdre, Carignane and Cinsault. Best from 2015 through 2020. 1,500 cases imported. –HS

91 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

Opaque ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of blackberry, floral oils, woodsmoke and mocha, with a peppery nuance adding lift. Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering juicy red and dark berry flavors that pick up energy with aeration. Closes broad, spicy and very long, with lingering smokiness and velvety, late-arriving tannins.
