Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, March 2016
Much more southern Rhone-like in style, the 2009 Abelard is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah that spent 18 months in barrel. Big, ripe, layered and hedonistic, with tons of sweet Grenache blackberry and black cherry... Much more southern Rhone-like in style, the 2009 Abelard is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah that spent 18 months in barrel. Big, ripe, layered and hedonistic, with tons of sweet Grenache blackberry and black cherry fruits, melted licorice and roasted herb aromas and flavors, this sensational Grenache has full-bodied richness, polished, sweet tannin, no hard edges and a great finish. While 2009 delivers lots of perfumed, upfront and slightly rustic wines due to the heat, this is silky, polished and incredibly pure. Drink this killer 2009 over the coming 7-8 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Saturated ruby. An assertively perfumed bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, along with hints of licorice, violet pastille and peppery spices. Sweet, palate-staining cassis and boysenberry flavors become spicier as... Saturated ruby. An assertively perfumed bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, along with hints of licorice, violet pastille and peppery spices. Sweet, palate-staining cassis and boysenberry flavors become spicier as the wine opens up, showing impressive energy and back-end thrust. Finishes smoky and very long, offering slow-building tannins and a suave echo of sweet dark fruit. - Josh Raynolds
