A Cote a Cote release blend of close to equal parts Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, the 2003 Cuvee Cote a Cote is a sexy, voluptuous effort that excels on all accounts. Still youthful, yet with hints of maturity in its ripe blackberry, creme de cassis, saddle leather, licorice and wild herbs-scented (almost garrigue-like) bouquet, this full-bodied, seamless and silky effort has blockbuster concentration, a voluptuous texture and no hard edges. Holding up beautifully over the evening, and improving in the glass, it can be consumed anytime over the coming decade. - Jeb Dunnuck

Knockout nose combines black cherry, blackberry and minerals, with a lovely spicy lift to the fruit; not at all roasted. Silky on entry, then compellingly sweet and aromatic in the mouth, with slightly high-toned kirsch and dark chocolateflavors perked up by a floral nuance. There's a lovely light touch to this rather powerful wine. Finishes firmly tannic and long, with obvious backbone but no dryness.
