An explosive nose of fresh fruit and pastille candies. The palate is broad and vibrant, with great acidity that carries the complex red and blue fruit flavors of fresh plum, dark cherries and blueberries long towards a well integrated finish. Wonderful pepper and anise notes flirt with the fruit, and give great form to this wine.
Blend: 42% Grenache, 34% Syrah, 24% Mourvedre
The 2010 Côte A Côte wraps around the palate with mocha, roasted coffee beans, plums, graphite and grilled herbs. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame a long, creamy finish endowed with substantial length. The late harvest personality of the year comes through nicely in this attractive, mid-weight offering. In 2010 the blend is 42% Grenache, 34% Syrah and 24% Mourvèdre.
Opaque ruby. Strikingly complex, smoke-accented bouquet evokes blackberry, cherry, cracked pepper and potpourri. Sappy, palate-staining dark berry compote flavors are given a tangy edge by an exotic orange pith quality and exhibit refreshingly peppery, spicy cut. The floral note repeats strongly on the finish, which is sweet, broad and very persistent.
