Offering surprising richness and depth, with a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated feel on the palate, it offers copious black cherry, leather, ground pepper and minerality on the nose. As with the other cuvees, it is a forward, fleshy vintage for the cuvee, yet it possesses fine tannin, terrific mid-palate depth and an all-around balanced, harmonious feel that should allow it to age gracefully. Enjoy it over the coming decade. Drink now-2023. - JD

Presents a smoldering feel from the start, with singed bay leaf, alder and tobacco notes leading the way for mulled currant, blackberry coulis and dark licorice flavors. Picks up a charcoal spine through the finish...   Presents a smoldering feel from the start, with singed bay leaf, alder and tobacco notes leading the way for mulled currant, blackberry coulis and dark licorice flavors. Picks up a charcoal spine through the finish, showing ample depth. Best from 2015 through 2025. 29 cases imported. — JM

Vinous, January 2014
Opaque ruby. Seductively perfumed aromas of spicy red berries, cherry-cola, blood orange, lavender and incense. Sappy spice- and mineral-accented red fruit flavors show palate-coating concentration but no excess fat...   Opaque ruby. Seductively perfumed aromas of spicy red berries, cherry-cola, blood orange, lavender and incense. Sappy spice- and mineral-accented red fruit flavors show palate-coating concentration but no excess fat. Gains energy on the impressively long, mineral-dominated finish, which is firmed by silky, even tannins. -- Josh Raynolds

Pure, sweet, vibrant and silky, the supple textured wine delivers a lot of polished ripe, lush fruit in the finish. Produced from 100% old vine Grenache, the wine reached 14.5% alcohol.
