The wine literally explodes on the palate with a rush of dark fruit enshrouded within a wall of muscular tannin. The 2009 is a dark inward Esprit that will require patience but when the wine opens up it will be a jewel. Actually it already is. In 2009 the blend is 40% Mourvedre 28% Syrah 27% Grenache and 5% Counoise. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. -AG

(40% mourvedre 28% syrah 27% grenache and 5% counoise): Vivid ruby-red. Sexy highly perfumed aromas of candied raspberry potpourri Asian spices sandalwood and licorice with zesty minerality emerging with aeration. Suave fresh and lithe showing impressive definition and florality to its seamless red fruit flavors. The spicy very long finish features gentle tannins and a flavor of red raspberry. A very polished blend.

Succinct aromas of brambly raspberry and stewed strawberry leap from the glass accented with hints of milk chocolate sage and coconut oil. The palate is bright with red cherry distinct chalky minerality and a healthy dose of chocolate. This multi-layered wine does a terrific job achieving an old-world style while staying true to its own unique personality. Decant before drinking or age this for a few years and enjoy over the next decade.
