Its cepage is the same as its reserve companion but the outcome is not and this wine impresses as being a bit broader and richer if not as bright. It is moderately full-bodied with more evident grip and its themes of darker fruit are laced with woodsy spice. It is solidly structured and suggest that age will work in its favor and we recommend that it be set aside for at least another three or four years. Connoisseurs Guide.

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): (45% grenache, 30% syrah, 13% mourvedre, 7% cinsault and 5% carignane): Bright ruby. Pungent cherry, blackcurrant and botanical herbs on the nose, with a slow-building floral nuance and a hint of peppery spices. Sappy dark berry flavors show very good intensity and gain spiciness and smokiness with air. Supple tannins gain power on the gently gripping finish, which leaves a note of bitter cherry behind. (Nov/Dec 2012)
