Vinous" Deep ruby-red. Liqueur-like chocolatey grenache dominates the nose today, but fresher notes of cherry and violet emerge with air. A lovely spicy, southern-style wine with medium weight and nicely integrated acidity (3.8 pH); really nothing overripe about this wine. Finishes juicy and firmly tannic, spreading out to saturate the palate without leaving any impression of excess weight.:~ST

Wine SpectatorAn old-school style, with signed alder, coffee and sweet earth notes peeking out from the core of steeped plum and black currant fruit. The slightly rugged finish lets loam and tobacco hints squeeze through. Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Cinsault and Viognier. Drink now through 2016. 6,800 cases imported.
