    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine features tea and tobacco leaf, garrigue, and jambon in the nose, as well as blueberries and pencil shavings. The mouth is full of spicy berries, licorice, and red currants. This wine is impeccably integrated.

    40% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre

    Critical Acclaim:

    Opaque ruby. Very sexy aromas of black raspberry, blueberry, apricot pit, licorice and violet. Wonderfully precise and vibrant, with terrific cut to its creamy flavors of dark berry compote and candied violet. Round and sweet on the back end, finishing with excellent clarity, length and a lingering note of floral pastilles. Asseo called this wine "a bit of a prostitute, but a very nice one."

    International Wine Cellar

    This is full-bodied, with loads of spicy, chocolate and meaty character. A mouthful, but freshness too. Loads going on. Very supple and voluptuous. Ready and long. 40% Grenache, 40% Syrah, and 20% Mourvedre. Drink now or hold.
