Yummy! Smoother, don't get hit with peppery taste. More fruity than spicy. Read more

Sweet and dusty on the nose, this shows aromas of tight red fruits flecked with mineral and allspice notes. On entry the texture is quite silky with black cherry fruit that is threaded with a contrasting medicinal edge. There is lovely purity and aromatic fruit, violet and sweet spice notes that are wrapped up in a restrained, slightly chewy package. The finish is long and pure, exhibiting excellent tension and focus in the mouth and right through the end. A bit reticent today but really very fine. 94pts

I only recently got more into drinking and rating wine, and this is the bottle that got me into it. It blew my mind. The deep complex blend of reds was the most amazing wine I have every tasted.

Delicious, complex, deep, and cavernous. Like bunny's favorite hiding places.

Had this on Febriary 18 and had to refuse it, even after decanting. The 2010 vintage is nowhere close to the quality of earlier vintages like '05 and '08. No real mouth feel on the start and absolutely no tannin on the finish. Exceptionally disappointing for what has been a solid zin/cab blend in recent years.

Dark red, almost garnet hue with bright red on the rim. Ripe cherry and cedar on the nose with hints of dried rose petal and sweet oak. Lovely entry that leads into a fat and savory mid palate. Ripe fig and black currant dominate the finish with a breadth of soft, well integrated tannins. - Dave Phinney, Winemaker44% Zinfandel26% Cabernet Sauvignon18% Syrah 9% Petite Sirah 2% Charbono 1% Grenache*these numbers are approximate - Winery

Pale green-tinged yellow. Fresh assertively perfumed aromas of orange pear and minerals with a sexy floral quality adding complexity. Bright and focused yet silky on the palate offering sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Closes bright and nervy with very good persistence to the orange zest and jasmine nuances.

Marc Perrin, of the family that has owned Beaucastel since 1909, says cool nights in August were key to quality in 2010, helping to preserve acidity in the grapes. The blend is a mix of approximately 30 percent Grenache, 30 percent Mourvèdre, 10 percent Syrah and 10 percent Counoise with small amounts of the remaining nine permitted varieties. Grapes are destemmed, flash-heated, then macerated in vats for two weeks. Fermentation takes place in a mix of cement and steel tanks. 7,500 cases made.
