    Winemaker's Notes:

    100 % Grenache, Limestony sand, Aged for 12 months: 30% in new oak – 40% in one year old barrels - 30% in two years old barrels. The limestony sands are mysterious: it is important to avoid judging young wines on a too definitive way. The terroir expression is well focused, there is plenty of finesse and complexity. Blackberry, ancient roses, almond, violet.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very solid, with briar and sage notes framing the juicy core of mulled currant, crushed fig and bitter cherry flavors. Pomegranate and licorice fill in on the finish. Drink now through 2013. 500 cases imported.

    Ruby-red. Bitter cherry, flowers and smoky minerals on the nose. Juicy, pure red and dark berry and spice flavors offer good cut and precision. Nicely round and fleshy, finishing with supple tannins, a note of bitter chocolate and attractive lingering spiciness.
    Range: 89-91
