Plush and forward with a dusting of mocha leading the way for plum sauce blackberry and currant fruit all followed by coffee and spice notes on the fleshy finish. Starts slowly but puts on weight and depth in the glass with lovely purity. Drink now through 2023. 875 cases made.

Alluring highly perfumed bouquet of vivid black raspberry blueberry and minerals with a sexy floral overtone. Impressively precise with sweet red and black fruit flavors braced by tangy minerality and complemented by rose lavender and succulent herbs. The finish of this impressively balanced wine is brisk and focused with sneaky sweetness and persistence. This is Apollo to the 2007's Dionysus.

A blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, aged all in concrete tanks and foudre, it offers notes of cedar, pepper and olive as well as medium-bodied depth and richness, bright acidity and plenty of tannin—all of which give the impression it’s best left alone for another handful of years. Let’s just hope the fruit wins the battle with the tannin and acidity. - Jeb Dunnuck
