    Winemaker's Notes:

    90% Grenache, 10% Syrah.
    Deep garnet red in color. The nose of the 'Haut Pierre' has strong spicy aromas that reveal a rich, powerful body that is delicate, yet has a tightly-knit tanninc framework. On the palate, the wine is rich and onctuous, revealing intense licorice-like flavors. Can easily be kept 10 years or more. Ideal with the traditional French and "Provencale" type stews and meat.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Although 90% grenache, this is dark and brooding, a gamey red full of roasted purple plum, flint and fennel seed flavors. It feels languorous, slowly revealing a supple texture and mineral details as it takes on air in the glass, gently building on the firm architecture of its tannins and acidity, which will hold it strong for a decade or more.

    This has nice polish for the vintage, with racy blueberry, raspberry and boysenberry fruit flavors well-supported by graphite, fruitcake and licorice root. A spicy edge lingers nicely on the fleshy finish. Drink now through 2025.
