Awesome rhone blend from Paso. Black cherries and blackberries jump out first followed by red cherries. Great balance, long finish, just a fantastic wine.

Elegant mouthfeel. Vivid wild berries and interesting hints of nutmeg, cedae and coconut. Long finish. Some nuances in this wine I have not experienced together before. Very interesting and complex, ever changing on the palate.

Another excellent, excellent vintage. Mint, blackberry, and plum aromas. Crisp, clear fruit on the midpalate with lots of cherries and chocolate. Much lighter on its feet than the 05, this should age spectacularly.

Like it's big brother in France, this is a wonderful depiction of Southern Rhone. Consistently a great effort, vintage to vintage.

I'm a huge fan of Mourvèdre so I really loved this wine. Deep ruby in color. Full bodied and intense, yet elegantly complex. Aromas of dark berries, cedar, nutmeg and coconut. I believe Wine Spectator gave it 93 points

Well-balanced, intense yet elegant. Full-bodied, showing vivid blueberry and wild berry flavors, with hints of nutmeg, cedar and coconut. Ends with a long, complex finish that shows a pleasant loamy, earthy quality. Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah and Cou... Wine Spectator.

93 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red with a bright rim. Spicy red berries, potpourri and minerals on the nose; this smells awfully fresh. Bright, palate-staining raspberry and blackcurrant flavors possess

Good intensity and vibrancy of flavors, with grapey blackberry and black cherry fruit that turns dry. Mourvèdre, Syrah, Grenache and Cournoise. Drink now through 2006.

The superb 2000 Esprit de Beaucastel is a blend of 35% Mourvèdre, 26% Syrah, 25% Grenache, and 14% Counoise. It reveals complex characteristics of cloves, spice box, cinnamon, and black fruits in a full-bodied, Châteauneuf de Pape-like style. Dense and chewy, with tremendous intensity as well as richness, like the 2002, it should age well for 10-12 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: This joint venture between Californian winery proprietor Robert Haas and the Perrin family of the great Chateau de Beaucastel in Chateauneuf-du-Pape took a few years to find its feet but recent vintages have been outstanding. The vines' location has been very well chosen in Paso Robles to yield high quality Mediterranean-style wines from southerh Rhone varietals. This vintage is made up of 45% Mourvedre, 28% Grenache, 22% Syrah and 5% Counoise. The aroma boasts black cherry, blueberry and licorice, with hints of dark chocolate, while the palate is rich, generous and warming with bags of dense black fruit, supported by excellent acidity and a fine edge of minerality.<br/><br/>(Alun Griffiths MW, BBR Buyer)
